Stuck Middle Hinge Pin of Kenmore Top Freezer Fridge door

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

Kenmore Top Freezer Refrigerator - Middle Hinge Pin Bracket. The hinge pin is stuck and nothing I do can unscrew it from the bracket. I need to flip it so that I can change the side the doors open on.

I got a replacement part from Sears direct but have the same issue.

Why is the pin in so tightly?

What can I do to change the orientation of the door? Has something changed with this bracket and the Use & Care guide hasn't been updated? Page 12 states that using a quarter inch socket wrench you should loosen and remove this pin. When I tried with the first one the bevelled edge got stripped. I took it to OSH they put it in a vice and also could not loosen the pin.

Any ideas, suggestions?

It sounds like the pin on your refrigerator has been giving you a lot of trouble and I hope I can provide a helpful link for you. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I suggest you add the full model number of your refrigerator so that the expert can provide you with a more detailed answer. I am adding a link in where you can enter your model number and a parts list diagram will pop up in where you can get some great parts for your appliance and you can see a parts list diagram. I hope my link is useful.
