    actually if i can remove the handles then it may just about get in, but i cant see how the handles come off..will probably require the inside of the door to be removed to gain access to the bolts holding the handles, but i cant see how....only other option is to remove the doors

    Re: american fridge door removal

    lol..bunged the delivery drivers a few quid for them to take the doors off and take it into the kitchen for me and put the doors back on..they used a couple of straps, put them under the fridge, and put their arms through them and lifted the fridge with no effort at all....anyway working fine now in the kitchen, however ive noticed two of the glass shelves have cracks in the plastic casing...a visit to currys tommorow to get them to give me two new ones...or do i ring samsung..
