Main door handle top section pulls out from bolt on sub zero 642

When you pull the handle the top part pulls away. There is a bolt it slides into with no threads. Any idea on how to tighten this? Thanks

    The problem is that the 'screws' that hold the door handles in place are headless.  Is there a special tool to tighten them??

There is a tiny set screw that holds that in place. It is on the bottom of the stand off and just needs to be tightened.

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 do I change the door panels on a model 642/F


Hi,
If you have an overlay door, by removing the door handles, should be about 6-8 screws located when you open the door look at the handle, you should see these screws run top to bottom.

I hope this helps.

I need to remove the wood door panels on my sub zero to repair a door handle


I have subzero 642 but it should be the same. Remove 2 screws on the top edge of the door. The screws attach a metal track to the top of the door and the track needs to be loosened to allow the front wood panel to slide out. Next on the side edge of the door are 3 metal strips. The middle one is held in place simply by magnets and slots at the top and bottom edges of the door. You can remove the middle strip by lifting it out in the middle with a small screwdriver and pulling it off. This will expose 3 or 4 screws that hold a metal track to the side edge of the door. Remove these screws and the metallic track on the side edge of the door. You can then slide the wood door panel out enough to expose the 2 screws that the door handle attaches to. Good luck!

The door handle on my sub zero 650 has come off.


Hi,

On Few Models, To remove the existing handle have a look for clipped on covers hiding the screws.On others, With a small flat blade screw driver stick between the handle and the door trim on top and push it up and on the bottom push it down and you can access the screws in the handles and tighten.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do you tighten a loose handle of the fridge door? Sub zero 642


I have the Sub Zero 650. I am not sure if yours iworks same but what you do is use a 3/32 Allen wrench; as you push the handle into the screw on the door so that it is flush, you insert the Allen wrench in the hole at the bottom of the short vertical connector at top and tighten; repeat for upper or lower part of handle.

New 642 freezer door is very hard to open due to seal sticking


If the seal or seating area is sticky, wash it with warm water. If it isn't, this is just the sign of a good refrigerator. As the air cools, it becomes more dense and creates a vacuum inside the compartment. With a pliable new door seal which is sealing well, combined with a large door, this can cause a great seal with alot of pressure pulling on it. Smile, this is why your consumers bill will be much better with that new sub-z.

Vacuum condensor


open both the freezer and refrigerator doors, there are 4 screws at the top of the door frame that extend into the grill covering above the doors where the condenser is housed.  Remove all 4 screws, pull the grill open and then use your home vacuum to clean the dust from the condenser coil (it'll be obvious that it needs it).  Close the grill back, replace the screws and the message should go away.
