That might work on the TOP hinge, but on the bottom hinge the refrigerator would have to be tilted or laid on its side. Also, you could have used a hex socket of the appropriate size instead of the “JIS #1 screw driver“ to remove the bolts.

My refrigerator is a Whirlpool that uses top hinge bolts that require an allen wrench. The bottom is another can of worms, especially with the auto-close.

The previous Whirlpool model had a bottom hinge with a plastic / nylon piece to make it close. When it broke, I made an aluminum piece that kept the door closed.
