Door locked shut


Hi found myself in same situation. Press in latch and insert fingers upwards there is a grey plastic strip push this up with fingers and door should open. Note upward press needed where this catch meets front of machine so just slide fingers up from latch/handle. There's actually no need to take top off to enable this.

save yourself some time, skinned knuckles, and grief and take the whole thing to an autobody shop. They can put it in for you quickly and fairly cheaply. I did not say dealer, i said autobody shop.

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.

The entire door handle snapped off


I have the same problem- funny when we built we went all Maytag and got a bunch of lousy handles- the stove, micro, fridge, and freezer... I glued the pieces of the handle together and used plumber's putty to fix it. It's MightyPutty, but without the repackaging and cost. Just knead the putty until mixed, fill the cavity of the handle and press on the door where it was... No problem after six months so far.

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.
