Yellowing handles on Maytag side by side refrigerator

Our MSd2432GR Maytag side by side refrigerator exterior handles have turned yellow. I suspect the UV has diminished the white pigments.
What is the fix for this?

I have a Maytag MSD2432GR side by side. I am finding water pooling in the bottom of the Refrigerator side, as well as finding periodic puddles in front of the fridge. What is the cause and how do I fix...


IT MAY NOT BE LEVEL. the fridge has condensation that builds up on it but usually evaporates. you may also have a pinhole size leak in the icemaker line behind the fridge.

The white plastic(?) full length door handles OUTSIDE the refrig are turning yellow on my white, side by side refrig. What can I purchase or use to re-whiten them and make them look clean and white again?


That yellow coloring is most likely a result of the white paint coming off, and the yellow plastic color showing underneath. Other than painting them with a good paint, which you would have to ask a paint expert for the proper type, my suggestion is to replace the handles altogether.

The handles on my white GE refrigerator have turned yellow. Will GE replace them? What are my options to have white handles again?


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. I can tell you from many many years of experience and from my very own refrigerator having the handles turn yellow that it does not seem to mater what you use they are just a lighter shade of yellow after cleaning. It is frustrating even from an old salt of 40 + years doing in-home Appliance repairmans' point of view. Mainly because nothing seems to work. I have relinquished myself to just replacing the handles if they are really yellow. Maybe some other expert has found the golden clue of "How to" get rid of the yellow handles. My experience has not been successful.

If you provide me with a Model number I can provide you with a couple of sources for your handles. I do not think GE is going to replace them for you. I have not seen them replace any under warranty for being yellow. They have replaced them when there was shipment damage.

Thanks for choosing FixYa

Door handles have turned yellow and i can not get


Try straight chlorine bleach with gloves on that is. If this doesn't remove the yellow stain you can forget it. You will have to replace them instead.

Replacing a relay switch/kit on a maytag refrigerator MSD2432GR


Wow! I am confused also. It sounds like it is more complicated than the ones I use. Can you send me an image of the relay and the terminals on the compressor?
I can tell you that the live wire ( wire with electricity) is the one that goes on the common terminal, that is the one that it at the top of the trangle formation, unless the formation is upside down then it goes on the bottom. Then the other neutral wire goes on the run terminal which is usually on the right if the triangle formation is right side up. Usually the neutral wire is white. So
try putting the white wire on terminal 3 and the orange on the top (or bottom) terminal. If there are any wires left over that you think need to be connected I would need to see an image.

GE Side by Side refrigerator door handles yellowing


The brillant person posted the perfect solution. We just tried it this weekend. The plastic composite on the handles is not UV protected plastic, so it yellows or turns brown over time. You can't clean it, as it's a defect due to light exposure. We downloaded a diagram of our fridge and learned how to take off the handles. The top and bottom white portions pop off, but be careful when doing so. We gently lifted them off the metal backing and put a butter knife underneath so we would not damage the plastic. You can then see the clips that hold them in place. Gently pry them and they will pop out. You have to remove the top and bottom pieces first then it will expose the screws that hold the handles in place. You need a star type screwdriver-we found one at Home Depot. The metal strip is a simple backing and will just stay in place. Now, the key is the Krylon Fusion paint-Satin White, like the one person wrote. It's for plastic. Clean off the handles and make sure they are dry. Tape off the portions you don't want paint on and spray them outside with the paint. It dries quickly, but we waited about 8 hrs to put them back on. Just put them back on with the handles first and then the top and bottom portions-they cover the screws. Ours now look brand new! Cost? Only $6.50 for the can of paint and we got it at Walmart. If we had to replace them w/new handles? About $175. Thank you to whomever it was that shared this idea. It really works!

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.
