I bought a refrigerator from Sears called a Kenmore Elite Model number 253.74973700.

I was told when purchasing this unit that the doors could be reversed but now they are no help in how to do it. In fact because it has a filtered water on the outside they now say it may not be reversable.

We lugged it up 3 flights, took the door off to get into the kitchen and can't seem to face trying to return it. Please Help!!!!

If the owner's manual doesn't provide instructions to do it, it likely isn't designed to be done. Sorry.

** I was told when purchasing this unit that the doors could be reversed **

That is usual for regular top-freezer refrigerators these days but yours with the dispenser is something special. The sales person likely took it for granted. :(

The diagram illustrates pivot hinges on both sides of the doors

throw that one away and cut a new one...."

Can the water line and power harness for the door dispenser be easily routed to the other side of the cabinet?

If so, you'll have to check with Sears again to see about instructions. You might also try Frigidaire (as they built your model for Sears) although I don't know how much help they'll give for a "Kenmore" branded product. Sears is suppose to handle the support for those products them self.
