Thanks. Just bare with me for a few minutes as i need to dig bring the info up and i can let you know how its done. I wont be long.

Ok what you need to do is open the door and look at the top of the fridge and you will see a plastic trim. Put you fingers into the gap near the hinge and then you can pull it if off. Its just a snap fit cover so it will pull off.

Now you will see the door hinge on the door. Look above the door hinge at the top of the door and you will see a small plastic cap. Push this up from underneath.
Now you need to put a screw driver through the hole and unscrew the door hinge pin and then pull it out of the door.
Now you can lift the door off the bottom hinge.

Now you need to remove the screws holding the bottom trim on the fridge and then you can access the screws holding the bottom hinge on.
When you remove the bottom hinge a backing plate will need to be remove from inbetween the plastic on the base were the hinge goes into.

Then insert the backing plate into the other side and fit the hinge there. Then you need to unscrew the hinge pin on the bottom hinge and move it to the other hole which you will see.

Now lay the door down and look on the bottom. You will see a plastic cover. You need to remove this and you will have a new one in the instructions for reversal so you need to fit that.

Then you need to revese the top door hinge as well.

Then fit the door to the bottom hinge and line it up to the top hinge and then remove the door pin into the hinge and thats it.

Try that and see how it goes. If you need anymore info just get back to me.
