Loose door handle

if this is a style with an aluminum handle that runs top to bottom of the fridge door, then you have to remove the metal strip in the center of the door handle. It is held by magnets. the best way to remove it without damaging it is to put a piece of electrical tape in the very center of the metal strip, and pull on it gently. it should lift it away from the handle then you can get your finger behind it to pull it the rest of the way off. DONT BEND IT or you will be buying a new one. Once they are even slightly tweaked, they will never stay on. Under this strip are the screws holding the handle on. Tighten them then tuck the strip you removed into the bottom then the top trim and just let it snap back into place.

How to remove door handle strip from fridge

If you look at the new one you will see where the tabs are that hold it in place. Use a thin bladed screwdriver where the tabs sit on the fridge door and lever towards the strip, not against the door. It is usually easiest to start one end if it's flat or in the middle if it bows out

The door handle strip on my Bosch logixx fridge has two broken fixings. I have bought a new handle strip but the 2 remaining fixing points are OK so I can't get the old strip off! Any ideas on how to...

I have a Logixx with the same problem. Brute force was the answer. You cant lever the tongues out of the way and so cant release the handle gently. Use a piece of wood and lever the handle forward in the same direction as you open the door and it should come off. The new handle then snaps back in. You may need to remove the residue of the old broken part of the clips.

Kelvinator Opal CS 390 F door has dropped down on handle side.

My sister has the same fridge model. We've removed the door and the bottom bracket supporting the hinge had collapsed up inside the door. We're going to cut out a piece of steel (3-4mm thick) and glue it along the bottom of the door in order for the door hinge to insert into something solid. Looks like it's a weak point in the door construction. Pity Kelvinator wouldn't acknowledge the problem and come up with a solution (other than replacing the door at $340 - which is what we were quoted).

Handle has pulled away from the door. How can I access the screws

Realized the top chrome part split into 2 pieces and then was able to remove the wood like strip in the chrome strip. Popped the top chrome anchor, reattached the handle bracket as the screw holes were not stripped, put the wood like strip back in place and slid the top chrome anchor back in place.

Fixing broken door lock of Indesit W123X washing Machine

no easy way to open
disconnect from mains
take top off. feel down the front to where the door lock is and see if you can feel the door peg sticking thro the door interlock. force this with your fingers and with luck the door will open
if can't do this way, break handle off and lever peg with a small screwdriver
you can buy a handle kit complete. fitting this is not difficult - split the door and all will be revealed advise you make a carefull note of where springs go etc before you start stripping it down or take a few fotos if you have a digicam
