How to Remove Samsung Refrigerator Doors Like a Pro!

Sometimes, you might need to remove the doors of your Samsung refrigerator.

You might simply be moving and want to ensure that your Samsung refrigerator is easy to transport and that the doors do not get damaged.

You could also need to replace damaged doors or simply disassemble your fridge for disposal.

When it comes to thinking about removing your Samsung refrigerator doors, it can seem like a daunting task, but don’t worry.

I’m here to let you know how to easily remove the doors from your Samsung fridge. It can be a remarkably easy and quick process.

How to Remove Samsung Refrigerator Doors

First, remove the screws, connectors, and hinges that hold the doors to the fridge. You can find these when you open your fridge doors. Then, lift the doors from the fridge. You still need to be very careful when handling them as they are heavy and the finish is still fragile.

Tools to Have on Hand

When starting any project you should map out the tools that you will need. This prevents any frustration in the middle of the project.

Removing Samsung refrigerator doors is a process that it’s hard to stop midway once you begin.

Having a basic tool kit on hand is a good rule of thumb to follow. You want to have a spanner ranch, a screwdriver kit, and a wrench kit to detach water lines.

If you have a smart Samsung refrigerator, many of the connecting cables are easy to remove as they do not require any tools to detach.

Step 1: Detach the Doors Themselves

The first step in removing the doors on your Samsung refrigerator is to detach the anchors that hold them in place.

You first need to unplug your fridge. As you are working with the power connections, you want to make sure that there is no power being provided to the fridge.

After you have unplugged it, you need to unscrew the doors. You can find these screws in the door hinges upon opening them.

The screws are easy to remove and can be done with either a Philips or flathead screwdriver.

As you’re unscrewing them, it is easier, and you prevent causing damage to the hinges, by supporting the door as you unscrew it.

After the screws and hinges, you need to look at the connectors. There are two and are located on either the right or left side.

This all depends on the brand of Samsung fridge that you have. Disconnect both of these.

Lastly, you need to detach the water coupler. Depending what model of Samsung refrigerator you have, you can either detach this by twisting it by hand.

Otherwise, a good idea is to have a set of wrenches on hand. After the water coupler is detached, your last step is to detach the red clip.

Look for the markings. Next to the connector, you should be able to see the marking ‘water coupler’.

Step 2: Detach the Hinges Themselves

Now that you have the screws and connectors removed, you can now turn on the hinges.

Make sure that when you lift the door off you keep it as level as possible. If you put a strain on the hinges when removing the doors, it can mean that you’re left with bent and unusable hinges.

I find that the best method is to start by removing the upper corner of the screws in the hinges, then moving to the bottom hinge.

Once the screws are out, a wrench is handy for the next part.

On the outside of the fridge, there are two bolts, one on each hinge. Once these are removed, you’re set for the next step.

Step 3: Lifting the Door Itself

Once you are sure that everything is disconnected from your Samsung refrigerator doors, you’re ready to lift them off!

To prevent damage to the hinges, you want to remove the refrigerator doors providing support for both ends, and remember to move slowly.

Remember you risk ending up with a fridge that will be damaged to the point that it will need to be replaced.
