Trying to install hinge kit 5303918455 on Kenmore side by side refrigerator. Instructions are minimal, but step one is to remove both freezer and refrigerator doors. Is this necessary...can this be done without removing the doors? Saw a similar repair on YouTube that kept the doors in place with blocks supporting the doors.
You would only have to remove the door of the hinge that you need to replace. You would remove the door take the screws out of the hinge and install the new hinge in accordance with the instructions. If you are replacing both lower hinges then you can remove 1 door at a time rather than both at the same time.
