I'm in the process of freshening up my kitchen a bit and need to remove the draw/door fronts from my integrated freezer but I'm not quite sure on how to do so.

With the integrated fridge it was simple as there were just screws and brackets that needed to be unscrewed however on the freezer I have what looks like 4 slotted brackets with bolts (2 either side)?

I think I probably need to get them undone using a flat pressed type spanner like you get with bikes etc though I don't know quite what size it would need to be?

Also I have the issue that I can't get to the two brackets on one side as it's close to the wall, would I be right in thinking I'll need to take the door of the freezer right off?

As I cant imagine needing a special spanner does the bracket not just pivot on the top screw and swing in to disengage?

Hmmm, I'd not noticed that there wasn't seemingly a screw in the bottom of the bracket, might be worth a try!

I had a good look at this last night and am none the wiser as to how to remove these panels.

After a good look I can see that the bracket in the picture above does in fact have two screws in it so the bracket can't swing anywhere.

I wondered about getting the door off to make it easier to access and had a look at the hinges.

The top hinge for the freezer door is attached to the door using a bracket with two screws on the top edge of the door, however I can only get to one of those as the other one sits under the work top. I also can't get to the part of the bracket that goes onto the main body of the freezer as that attaches to the top of the freezer and is located in a channel that has been carved out of the bottom of the worktop.

The bottom hinge attaches to the door in the same way as at the top, with two screws into the bottom edge of the door. The bottom bracket itself is a plastic part which screws into the front of the freezer. I did try unscrewing this to see if I could drop the door down and off, however, in doing so, neither of the two screws came out fully, from the body of the freezer, they just loosened which made the door drop down to one side but was not removeable. They then didn't want to tighten back up again without a fight, I did eventually get one of them to retighten which meant I could close the door and it'd seal closed again but not I'm completely stumped as to how to remove these two panels (door front and drawer front).

The only thing I can think is if I can wind the legs right down (or up rather) to drop the height of the freezer it might drop enough that the top bracket is lower that the channel for it in the worktop and I might be able to move the freezer forward enough that I can get to the top of the bracket and might stand a chance of removing the door but even then I can't see how I can take the panels off. The only fixings I can see are the brackets in the pic above.

I may have found the answer, I think I might need one of these...
