Question about Refrigerators
The door handle on my bottom freezer drawer keeps coming off. Is this a manufacturing defect or do I have a freezer door handle lemon?
SOURCE: Loose freezer door handle
Maytag uses two types of door handle mounts. first look at the bottom side of door handle to see if there are tiny set screws. If there is you might just have to tighten them with an allen wrench. If it doesn't you need to grasp the handle firmly and pull it towards your left, sometimes they can be a little stubburn and require a light wrap with a rubber mallet. This will remove the handle. In this case there will be a clip inside the handle end, check to see if it is bent or if the handle itself is cracked, although I have seen some where the handle mount has become loose and that can be tighted by turning clockwise.

that handle is just pressure fit on the clips securing to the door. grab hold ad PULL.and i mean PULL the the right. it will snap off just make sure you really PULL it. after that you cantighten the brackets on refig and inside the handle as well

Remove all the food from the freezer and then the drawer from the cabinet. Now using a silicone based lubricant, lube the tracks up real well. Be sure to clean the tracks first if gunked up. Make sure nothing small fell out of the basket over time and is laying on the floor in the rear of the freezer section. Once done, you should be fine.
