Door Handle I have a Kenmore side by side and can't find the model number.  The handle has broke and I cannot find a replacement for it.  The part number is 2203543 but I cannot find a part on any website.  Can anyone tell me what possible model # it may be.  It's black/side by side/ ice maker/water dispenser.

Re: Door Handle

Yep, if the engineer had worked for me, I would have fired him/her. I have gone through 3 of them of the past 3-1/2 years until I got tired of it.

That said, it likely brakes at the same corner/corner. You will likely find a cavity inside each broken half. Using superglue and a small flat piece of metal (cut from a metal washer) sized/formed to fit inside cavities when the broken half are pieced together. Trial piecing the pieces together first before glueing them together.

If there are no cavities (solid), try creating one (you may be able to drill/carve out) in each broken half then follow the steps above.

Guaranty better than new and last a whale of a lot longr.

Good luck.

    The handle broke on the door. Model ET20NKXDW02

    Go online to Whirlpools web site with model number. You should be able to purchase a new one, and if you dont have a manual, you should be able to download one to show you how to replace the handle. Usually you unbolt the handle from the top of the door/handle and the same with the bottom.

    On my Kenmore Elite #106.56683501 the refrigerator door is loose

    Depending on the model, and the color, here's your fix.

    Stainless with stainless handles- you'll need a hex key. The tiny hole is on the inside of the handle, close to the center. Turn the key until it's tightened.

    Stainless with black handle/white/bisque/black- push the door handle up. Careful not to scratch the finish! once the handle pops, pull it straight off. Take a phillips head screw driver, tighten the top screw A LITTLE BIT and then attach again. Insert screws on the door into the holes on the handle, slide down. (will need to be a little tough with it.)
    Good luck!

    ISO refrigerator door handle

    Your original repairman must have looked up a similar model without the snack door. The handle of couse would have also been listed, but this is difficult since A. You do not give your model number and B. (maybe not as bad) we don't know what model number he used when he ordered your door(s). Please list the complete model number of your refrig. (from sticker inside fresh food compartment) and I'll try to help.

    Door Handle Issue

    I may need the entire model # off the sticker inside the fridge section to help.  Most side by sides have a slot that the handle fits into and just pull down hard to lock into place.  May need to take the handle all the way off and tighten the screws on the handle and on the door first.
