How do I remove...

How do I remove the cap that protects the top hinge on a refrigerator?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

It's a maytag GE Monogram. Freezer drawer on bottom.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The cap does twist about 10 degrees to the left as facing the frig but I'm afraid I will break it if I push any harder.

They normally just twist then pry off to get them off. Make sure you have all screws visible removed for sure, but these are just decorator snap caps and typically just pop right off using a small flat blade screwdriver.
