How to Reverse the Doors on a Beko Fridge Freezer

If you're moving or rearranging your home and would like to reverse the doors on your Beko fridge freezer, this article will show you how to do this. The process can be tricky, but we will guide you through each step so you can complete it as quickly and as safely as possible.

If you have a Zanussi fridge freezer, we also have a video on how to reverse the doors on this model too.

How to Reverse the Doors on a Beko Fridge Freezer step by step

For a guide on what to do if you want to change the door opening direction on a Beko fridge freezer, either watch the video or follow the step-by-step guide below.

Safety First

Before you begin, make sure your fridge freezer is switched off and disconnected from the mains.

You'll need

To complete this process, you'll need the following tools. If you don't have these to hand, you can find them on our website.

  • A small flat head screwdriver
  • A Phillips screwdriver
  • A ratchet with a 9mm and 13mm attachment
  • A standard flat head screwdriver or a Torx 25

Step 1: Remove the top door hinge

Open the door and use a small flat head screwdriver to prise the hinge cover away. Insert it into the left-hand side and gently open it and pull the hinge across until it comes away.

Then remove the two hinge screws using either a flat head screwdriver or the Torx 25. Make sure you have the fridge door supported while doing this so it doesn't fall when the hinge is removed.

Angle the fridge door outwards until you have the hinge clear of the cabinets.

Once you've done this, you can then lift off the hinge, still making sure that your fridge door is supported.

Step 2: Remove fridge door

Now the fridge door is free, you can remove it by lifting it off of the centre hinge and then place it to one side.

Step 3: Remove the middle hinge

Now that the fridge door has been removed, you'll need to remove the middle hinge. To do this, remove the screws from the hinge with either your flat blade screwdriver or a Torx 25. Then lift the hinge away and keep it to one side.

Step 4: Remove the freezer door

You can then remove the freezer door by opening it slightly and lifting it off the bottom hinge. Place this to one side.

Step 5: Remove and transfer the bottom hinge

To access the bottom hinge, lean your fridge back against the wall. We recommend putting a towel on the back of the fridge to protect the wall and the fridge.

Once the fridge is securely leaning back, unscrew the foot from the bottom of the hinge.

Then remove the two head bolts from underneath the appliance. As these bolts will either be 9mm or Phillips head bolts, either use a 9mm spanner or a ratchet.

Remove the hinge but refit the two 9mm screws into the right-hand bottom of the chassis.

Unscrew the bottom left-hand foot and transfer it over to the right-hand side and place it into the hole between the recently inserted 9mm screws.

Next, remove the two 9mm screws from the bottom left-hand chassis and then fit the hinge that you remove from the right-hand side with the screws.

Then refit the left foot.

You can now stand the appliance back up and level the feet.

Step 6: Transfer the three blank caps

Use a small flat head screwdriver to loosen the caps and place them into the right-hand side centre hinge location holes.

Step 7: Refit the freezer door

To replace the freezer door, turn it upside down and transfer the door stop and the bush bracket from one side to the other. Make a note of the orientation of the door bracket and then unscrew and remove it.

Carefully prise the bush bracket out of the door using your flathead screwdriver and transfer it onto the right-hand side.

Fit the plate over the bush bracket in the same orientation that it was on the opposite side and refit the screws.

Flip the freezer door back upright and swop over the caps from either side. 

You can then refit the freezer door by slotting it onto the bottom hinge. Then close it and hold it into place as you reattach the middle hinge by refitting the screws.

Step 8: Refit the fridge door

Then to refit the fridge door, the first thing you need to do is remove all of the door trays which should just slide away.

Turn the door upside down and swop over the bush bracket by unscrewing it and refitting it on the other side. Just note that the door stop isn't transferable. You'll need to use the door stop that was provided when you bought the appliance. If you don't have this, you can fit the door without it, it just means that the fridge door will open all the way.

Flip the door upright again and remove the top hinge door cover by prising it away. This isn't transferable to the other side but when you bought your appliance, you will have one that fits onto the other side. If you can't find it, it can be fitted without it. You can also then refit the door trays.

On the top hinge, there should be a 13mm nut. You can unscrew this using a 13mm ratchet or spanner and then screw it back on the opposite side of the bracket.

Next, transfer the blanking plate from the left-hand side to the right using the small flat blade screwdriver.

Reattach the door by slotting it onto the central hinge.

Then support the door and reattach the top hinge with the screws.

When the screws have been refitted, you can replace the hinge cover plate.
