GE Profile Refrigerator model #TXP24PRYE with yellowed handles

I have a GE Profile refrigerator and the handles have yellowed. I've tried a number of things to clean them and they are still yellow. Does anyone have a solution without the expense of new ones.

    I tried the clorox cleaner and it didn't help. I actually thought about the Krylon paint that adheres to plastic since the handles seem to be a rubber type of plastic. I am going to give it a try since they look bad with the yellow. If that doesn't work, I'll just order new ones from GE. Thanks.

Spray with clorox all purpose cleaner and scrub it with hot or warm damp wash cloth.If the handles are plastic, Krylon makes an excellent line of spray paint products that bonds to plastic and adheres to the surface. Most spray paint products only coat the plastic and on a surface like a handle that will be used constantly, is easily scratched or peeled. The Krylon plastic paint bonds to the plastic surface and is very durable. The one down side is if you paint the handles and don't like the results, there is no going backwards, you can't remove the paint once it has cured.

The handles on my white GE refrigerator have turned yellow. Will GE replace them? What are my options to have white handles again?

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. I can tell you from many many years of experience and from my very own refrigerator having the handles turn yellow that it does not seem to mater what you use they are just a lighter shade of yellow after cleaning. It is frustrating even from an old salt of 40 + years doing in-home Appliance repairmans' point of view. Mainly because nothing seems to work. I have relinquished myself to just replacing the handles if they are really yellow. Maybe some other expert has found the golden clue of "How to" get rid of the yellow handles. My experience has not been successful.

If you provide me with a Model number I can provide you with a couple of sources for your handles. I do not think GE is going to replace them for you. I have not seen them replace any under warranty for being yellow. They have replaced them when there was shipment damage.

Thanks for choosing FixYa
