How to Remove the French Doors on a GE Profile

GE Profile french-door refrigerators are home appliances, with two doors that both open to the refrigerator cavity. In french door models, the freezer is located below the refrigerator, and the entire freezer compartment slides out from the bottom of the refrigerator. Like traditional french doors, the doors open out from the center of the refrigerator. The doors are easily removable if the doors must be removed during the moving of the refrigerator, or for repair purposes. If your refrigerator also has an ice and water dispenser in the door, it must be disconnected during the door removal process.

Step 1

Open the refrigerator doors.

Step 2

Remove the two plastic caps on the top of the doors using a flat-head screwdriver.

Step 3

Unscrew and remove the three Philips screws on the top of the doors and remove the plastic cover.

Step 4

Un-clip the wire harnesses by lifting the tab, then pulling the two pieces of the harness away from one another.

Step 5

Disconnect the water coupling by pushing in the gray piece on the coupling, then pulling the tubing out of the coupling.

Step 6

Unscrew the screws securing the ground wire to each door. Remove the ground wire.

Step 7

Remove the three hex-bolts on the top of each door.

Step 8

Lift the door straight up and off of the hinges to remove from the refrigerator.
