How to fix loose freezer handle on whirlpool refrigerator


This repair is not as easy as you might expect. The door gasket, inner door panel, and insulation must be removed to get at the screws attaching the door handle.

Hi, Have model E522B fridge, freezer cold but fridge even on lowest setting is only just getting cold. Can I fix it myself? Thanks for your help


The only thing a home owner can do to fix this is to make sure ALL the coils under and behind you fridge are clean. If that dose not work I would very strongly suggest calling a repairmen before you attempt to fix.

Maytag Ice20 freezer door handle fell off on one side


I had the same thing happen with my freezer door on my Ice20 as well. You need to look inside the hole on the inside of the handle on the end that has come off. There will be a loose screw head sitting in there. You need to get that out and screw it back into the hole in the freezer door. Then, place the handle back on top of the screw that you just put in. Make sure the screw head is sitting properly inside the hole in the handle and the handle is flat to the door where it should be. Now, using a small set of allen keys, find the one that fits in the tiny hole on the underside of the handle. There is a little thread in the hole and you need to use the allen key to turn the thread until it puts pressure on the screw. This keeps the handle on. I was able to fix my door with a 40 cent allen key. Hope this helps!

Whirlpool stainless french door refrig...need to take handle off bottom freezer door so I can move it out of house. Is this possible without taking off the whole door?


it is much better to remove the complete door instead of handle . there are 4 screws inside that will release the complete door . if your want to do the handle use a credit card and insert it between the handle and door to release . but if stainless it some times leaves marks on door . i always remove the doors as one door is ever and i mean very costly.. mm hope this helps mm feed back pls ..

Sears trio elite ...french doors with bottom freezer...right side loose on freezer door handle...thanks


I have the same refrig. After taking the freezer basket hinges off, thinking I had to take the whole door a part to access the screws for the handle...my husband figured that the handle probably slides off...and yes that is just what it does!
Push the handle in a bit and then slide to the right. It takes a little bit of effort but that handle will come right off. Then you can tighten the screw that holds the clip in place. Then you line the handle back up to the clips, and slide to the left. Good Luck!

Amana AFI2538AEW bottom freezer door handle is loose?


My dad's freezer handle is loose, model ABB2224DEW. Went to partselect.com and located drawing of freezer door parts. Found a link to a "do-it-yourselfer" that describes removal and replacement of the handle. Hopefully this helps.

Replacement of freezer door handle.
1. Removed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle removal instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. Removing the handle requires inserting a plastic card at least 1.5 inches under the left end of the right side of the handle so it releases the butterfly clip latch on the freezer door. Next I pulled the right side of the handle to lift it away from the freezer door. Then still holding the handle away from the door, at the spot that is 1.5 inches from the inside of the right side of the handle, I held the plastic card vertically and slid one corner of it between the handle and the freezer door and worked the card down until it released the butterfly clip latch. Keeping the card at the same space under the handle so the latch was released, I then turned the card to the left until it was horizontal and was lifting the left end of the right door handle away from the freezer door. I then slid the handle across the card to the left until it cleared both door butterfly clip latches and it lifted off the door.
2. Installed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle installation instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. The handle is curved on one edge and must be installed the curved side down. Correctly installed, the outside ends of the handle curve upward and the handle curve is down so it looks like a frowning mouth. Next holding the handle curved edge down, I turned it up so I could see the brackets and held it against the door. I lined up the handle brackets slightly to the left of the butterfly clips on the freezer door. Next I turned the handle with the brackets against the freezer door and slid it slightly to the right until the left side of the handle held onto the door butterfly clip by itself but was not latched. Then I lined up the right handle bracket with the right freezer door butterfly clip and carefully slid the whole handle to the right until I heard the left butterfly clip latch click. Next I slid the handle back slightly left once more and then slid it back to the right until I heard the right butterfly clip latch click.


Parts Used: HANDLE, DOOR (WHT) Level of difficulty: Difficult Time to do repair: 30 - 60 mins

Bottom freezer door handle loose


There is a plastic card that you are supposed to slide under the right side of the handle. Once you have done this correctly the whole handle should slide off to the left.
