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.

Door handle fell off of oven


Rachel, every range oven door I've seen, that was built in the last 20 years comes off the range by opening it about 6 - 8 in. from the top of the door frame, taking a firm grip on both sides about 8 - 10 in. down, bend the knees slightly, get a good grip on the door and pull up sharply. The door should release from the spring hinge on each side. Once you have it out you can lay it flat on the kitchen table, (preferably on a towel or cloth of some sort), with the inside facing up. There should be several screws that hold the interior portion of the door to the outer portion. If you remove these screws you should be able to remove the inner portion of the door, by pulling straight up, easily, and put it on the floor or if there's room, on the counter or table. Now you should be able to locate the holes the screws go into, to hold the handle on the door. If they connect from the interior, you should have found them when the interior was off the first time. Take them and install the handle. If there are none, find some chatterproof washers and put one on the inner side of each screw to keep them from loosening again. Once you have the handle secured to the door you should be able to put it back together. After you have assembled the two halves of the oven door, make sure the two hinge assemblies are pulled away from the frame of the oven at approx. a 35 degree angle. This is necessary to have the proper clearance to allow the door to slide down onto the hinges and grab on inside. The door should slide right down over the two hinges and then you can close it up.

GB2FHGXB01


Are you sure of the model number? I don't see a Whirlpool GB2FHGXB01 ; I do see a model GB2FHDXWB01.

For this model, there are several different door handles. One has a Philips head screw hidden under a trim piece. To expose the screw firmly push the trim away from the center of the handle. (This is for a standard Whirlpool fridge door handle.)

The French door style refrigerators have slightly different door handles. One uses Allen screws as set screws to secure the handle. (This screw needs a 3/32" Allen screw (hex key) and you can access it through a small hole in the underside of the handle on the loose side.) Be careful not to overtighten the screw or you may strip the threads and have to replace parts.

The other option has the handle mounted on brackets on the door. To access the bracket, grasp the freezer handle and pull it to the left. Then pull the handle away from the refrigerator.

For pictures of the handles, see pages 9 and 10 of the manual. It's available here: https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/User%20Instructions%20-%20W10366204.pdf .

I hope this helps. If you do have the GB2FHGXB01, check if any of these directions help. Most refrigerators use one of the above door handle designs.

I have whirlpool A CLASS fridge how do i reverse the door


  • I cannot confirm weather your fridge had reversible doors as you listed no model but the standard for fridges that can reverse the door swing are changed by doing this -
  1. You will see little plastic covers on the opposite side where the hinges and handles are currently located now.
  2. There are some little clips that hinge the screws on the top and bottom of each handle.
  3. Remove these little covers with a small flathead screwdriver.
  4. Now remove the screws holding the freezer and refrigerator handles on.
  5. Now pop the screw hole covers on the side of the frig/freezer you will using.
  6. Now place and fasten with screws the handles on the other side of the frig/freezer door.
  7. Now remove the top freezer hinge first by removing the 3 screws on top.
  8. Now pull up on the hinge (save the spacer).
  9. Now pull up on the freezer door.
  10. Now remove the screws on the middle hinge.
  11. Now pull up and remove the middle hinge while holding the frig door steady (save the spacer).
  12. Now pull up on the frig door and set to the side.
  13. Now remove the screws on the bottom hinge (save the spacer).
  14. Now put the screw hole covers you removed from the other side in the screw hole exposed from the screws you just removed.
  • The switch
  1. Start with the bottom hinge and place it on the opposite side (don't forget the spacer).
  2. Place the frig door on the bottom hinge and the place the middle hinge in the hole at the top of the frig door.
  3. Fasten the middle hinge.
  4. Place freezer door on the middle hinge.
  5. Put the freezer door in it's natural position to make putting the top hinge on possible.
  6. Screw the top hinge in.
  7. Job complete.

My door handle from inside of passenger side is broke. How do I get the panel off?


Park the vehicle on level ground and have good lighting available. Open door all the way. Start with a pick, pocket knife or very small slot screw driver. Practically all modern vehicles utilize plastic snaps to secure the perimeter of a door panel. However, you will find that two large screws will hold the door panel on around the "door handle/arm rest" as this is where we pull the door closed....so it needs extra securing. If you look on the bottom portion of the handle, you will see either two access holes pointing up at a 35 degree angle...or two "plugs" which act as "appearance covers" hiding the actual holes. Carefully pop these out. Shine your flash light up the hole and identify the type of fastener. ( it i'll be a large Phillips # 3.....or a torx type fitting) remove these. Now, the other places to look for fasteners you remove from "your side of the door" are at the door handle "lever" remove the cover directly behind this lever. You might find this fastener also has a "beauty cover" remove it and the screw. next, top corner up by the outside mirror. you will have a speaker or a cover there that serves as the cover for the screws that mount the outside mirror. remove the cover. if you see no fasteners or covers, it likely pops off. Just be slow and careful. along with the big screws at the door handle/arm rest, there may be another fastener at the top of the handle. With all of these removed and if you see no fasteners around the bottom of the door...wedge your fingers along the bottom and pull straight out. You will be "unsnapping" the plastic fasteners at the bottom and sides of door. Now you will have a door panel that is loose at the bottom and away from the door frame itself. Barring any trim thats not part of the door panel, you should be able to raise the door panel strait up^^^ and free it from the top of the door. Remember, if its not coming off in a reasonable manner, something is still connected. Once the panel is free, sitting on the edge of the seat, put the door panel in your lap and disconnect the electrical connections, door lever rod...etcetera.....

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!!

Handle to a side by side pulled off at the top - how do I re-affix it?


If your model has the 2 screws at each end of the handles and the sheet metal screw holes in the door are stripped out, then just use the next larger screws to replace them.

Rear door won't open


You can get the panel off with the door closed. I just took mine off because of the same problem. The top portion is only connected with some clips inside the panel. Take the screws out of the rear side window first. The panel will pop off if you gently pry with a flatbar. under the panel are three screws. Remove the screws and lift up on the bottom panel. It comes right off. Find the cable that goes to the top latch and pull it. It should release and you can replace the door latch assembly. Mine were both broken and I am in the process of fixing them.
