Hello...what is your model number? If you're talking about the FRS26R4A, the top plastic piece on the top part of the handle slides up and off. The bottom plastic piece on the bottom part of the handle slides down and off. Hope this helps.

On the door handle there should be some small plastic parts that will slip off. You may need a small screwdriver to pry them up. Be careful since you have to live with any marks you leave on them. These plastic pieces should be at the top and bottom of the handle. Pry them up and the screws should be underneath them.

In the chance that you can see a small screw with a funny head on it, you may need either a torx head or allen wrench to turn it.

SOURCE: Need to remove door handles in order to get it through the door.

You have to remove the screws under the magnetic door seal . The inner side of the door seal will
lift up enough so that you can get to the screws.the screws hold the door seal and the inner plastic liner in place.When you have removed enough screws, you will be able to pull the liner out so you can get to the screws holding the door handle on.

Handles loose on Frigidaire fridge doors

Jeff, If you can not see any visible screws, look for molded removable trim caps on the handle, remove and tighten screws. If no trim caps then your handle is probably mounted to fridge with screws in slotted slide, which get slid off by pulling straight up on handle, normally takes a lot of force to slide up and out. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do i remove the fridgerator door handle


To move refrigerator through a house door, it may be necessary to remove the refrigerator door handles.

1. Removing Refrigerator Handle

Grasp the handle tightly with both hands and slide the handle up (this may require some force).

The keyhole slots on the back of the handle allow the handle to separate from the mounting screws.

CAUTION:The handle could be damaged if you hit it with a hammer while removing or attaching.

CAUTION:When you assemble or disassemble handle, you must push or pull with reasonable force.

2. Removing Freezer Drawer Handle

Press the handle against door first.

Grasp the handle tightly with both hands and slide the handle to right (this may require some force).

The keyhole slots on the back of the handle allow the handle to separate from the mounting screws.

How do I rotate my door from left to right on my whirlpool refrigerator? I cannot figure out how to remove my handle.

I had the same problem and then I tried the instructions to remove the plastic handle from the french door model. I gently used a rubber mallet to knock the handle straight up and loose. It's a very firm connection so it takes a few knocks to get it to move at all.

I want to fix handles on the doors. Can I remove the finger holds at the sides of the doors to access inside of the door fronts?

You have not mentioned the model but you will have to open the inside lining of the tray holders , to remove to get access to the handle fitting screws, which can be removed to fix the new one.

Loose handle on door

The door handles mount on hex bolts sticking out of the door, the door handles have key hole inserts that match with the bolts. The door handles are then slid in one direction to lock the handles in place. Removal is the reverse. To tighten the door handle screw the bolt out enough that you can still put the handle over the bolt heads and slide the handle to lock the handle in place.

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.
