Adjust shelves on an Everchill WD-282FWDC

Hello fellow campers, new Salem Hemisphere RV owner here (2020 Hemisphere 29BHHL). Iím trying to adjust the shelves on my new everchill 12V refrigerator, but the way itís installed in the camper, you canít open the doors all the way. As a result you canít remove the shelves so that I could put them into a more useful configuration. Anybody have any ideas on removing the door? Or other ideas to get the fridge positioned so the drawers to be moved? Weíll probably just adjust it one time and never do it again so if I can remove the doors one time that would work fine.

I found the manual online but it has nothing on reversing and removing the doors. Any help appreciated. Thanks all, Click image for larger version

Agreed and thanks! Got a cal into the dealer. Have had a good experience with them so far so hopefully they can walk me thru removing the door. Will post back with the outcome.

There is no instructions on this model anywhere, but the door can be removed with and switched to the other side. I think it is a 1/2" bolt on the top and bottom of the door.


You have to open it almost the entire way to get the shelves out. In our Puma, our door open opposite of yours, but right into our panty. So we have a similar issue, but I can open the door just enough to get out the shelves.

Thanks! Yeah the dealer basically said I need to remove all the brackets holding the fridge in and pull it nearly all the way out in order to remove the door. If I manage to do that with a helper, Iíll just adjust the shelves while itís out to whatever level the wife and I like and put the fridge back in (since I was only thinking of removing the door in order to help me adjust the shelves in the first place). Such a weird oversight on FRís part. Appreciate the comments gang!

Yeah that was my plan too, but I canít remove the door without removing the fridge from the cabinet, and by then Iíd be able to open the door wide enough to move the shelves, so no need to remove the door.

If like my Vibe 24X the fridge is held in by two plates one on either side with two wood screws in each plate. Just pull the screws and plates and it will slide forward as far as needed. I would think that a few inches would be enough to get the door to fold back to allow you to r and r the shelves like you want them. Then push the unit back in and reinstall the retainer plates.

Yes, my setup is similar, plus one more bracket on the bottom left holding back one of the fridgeís ďfeetĒ. Itís on my honey-do list. :-)

I'm sure having the larger fridge everyday is worth this one hour hassle. 10 lbs in a 5 pound bag has consequences. Let us know how hard it was and if any issues came up
