2022 Dutch Star Whirlpool Fridge door opening?

I notice that the doors on the fridge don't open past 90 degrees... both appear to have a stopper built into the bottom hinge.

One door is right against a wall, so the 90 limit seems nice.

The other opens to the space in front of my kitchen counter tops, so the 90 limit prevents the door from opening wider and makes it harder to get at stuff in the fridge.

Any tips or suggestions on removing the stopper so the door can swing freely on the one side?

Note I'm not talking about the travel lock, this is just a small piece of metal in the bottom of the door hinge.

If the doors open enough to get the draws out by pulling straight, then those are the factory set limits for the doors. Look at a rendering of a parts page for the doors and see if there is a way to remove the stop.

Some have the stops at the bottom of the doors and others at the top. If you can remove the top cover, then you will be able to see where the built in stop is located. Most newer fridges don't open as far due to not wanting to make contact with counter tops.
