Question about Amana AFD2535DES French Door Refrigerator

2 Answers

Freezer Door handle came off after 1 yr.

Our French door freezer door handle has slowly been loosening. There were no screws visible to tighten, so I couldn't do much about it. Today the handle popped off. Nothing is broken in the handle but the clips in the handle are loose.  I can tighten them, but am not sure how the handle is reattached.

Can you help?
Thanks,
Joe

    Thanks. The clips had actually come loose but were still attached to the handle. I tightened them, then slid the handle on as you suggested.

I had this problem with the bottom freezer door of my Amana.
What I did was slide off the entire door handle by applying pressure pushing toward the right to get the handle off. Once the handle was off, I slid the clip (which was still clipped on to the door) off and screwed it back on to the handle. Once the clip was tightly secured to the back side of the handle, I carefully slid the handle bar back on to the door by sliding it to the left back on to the door clips until it clicked securely back into place.

There should be screws in the clips to tighten and then put the handle back on to the bolts on the door thru the big holes in the handle clips and slide the handle the opposite way very hard to lock it in.

How to remove the bottom freezer door handle on Samsung French door refrigerator model # RF26XAERS


The screw heads may be inside the door cavity, screwed into the back of the handles.
If this is the case, as with our Fridge-Master fridge/freezer, it is very difficult, needing strip down of door.
Good luck... :)

How do I reattach handle on freezer door pull that has come unscrewed on French Samsung refrig


Many times the handle is slid on from one side or the other onto the screws. Try sliding the handle off by gently putting a screwdriver or putty knofe under the handle on the side that is still attached and pushing the handle sideways. This should remove the handle so you can remove the mounting screw and get it back on the door. then you can slide the door handle back on after getting the screw attached on the door again.

look for a small hole on one side of the handle. There should be a set screw there you can tighten. (the handle attaches to a ball shaped peg under the handle, and does not attach from the inside of the door)

Loose freezer door handle


There is a "set screw" on the underside of the posts that connect the handle to the mounting posts on the face of the door of my Jenn-Air bottom freezer. Use an Allen wrench to loosen the set crew, which is very small (my Jenn-Air requires a 3/32" Allen wrench), and then tighten the bolt on the mounting post on the face of the freezer door. Position the handle over the post, then tighten the set screws with the Allen wrench. Cynthia

Hi, Please get me the model # from the label inside the refrigerator and I will look this up for you. Most handles have a set screw that tightens down.
