I recently purchased an LG Fridge (Model LRDCS2603S/00) and am attempting to reverse the door (so it opens from right to left instead of left to right). I have been following along in the manual how to do so and have come to a snag. When attempting to switch the center assembly hinge, I am unable to loosen the pin. The manual says
Use a 1/4 in. hex socket wrench to loosen the hinge pin (1) and remove it.
But when I attempt to do so, it doesn't budge at all - not even a turn or anything. I attempted a normal hex screwdriver, a socket wrench, and I even used my drill with 1/4 in. attachment - I ended up marring the pin head so bad it was no longer able to be grabbed with the wrench. I decided to purchase a new assembly thinking there was something wrong with my part, but the new one has the same issue. Here is an image of my new part:
Has anyone gotten past this issue before and have suggestions on how to proceed? I know links are frowned upon, but if it helps, here is the link to the refrigerator owner's manual and a youtube video showing how it is done.
