I want to know how I fit a new lock/haNDLE TO THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT

To under take this job you may require to remove the rear panel of the Freezer door, you need to turn the magnetic stripping to one side without damaging the rubber seal some panels have screws that have to be removed around the outer edge / some panels need to gently prised from the edge as the locate into a groove and once started it get easier to remove as you go round / then others are pushed into spring clips so need to be prised off. but please check the handle on the front of the freezer before you attempt any of the above, look for any joint lines across the face or side of the handle to see if there are any little plastic covers that you just pop off with a sharp implement that reveal screw heads to remove the handle hopefully it this method.

Good Luck

The door handle on my sub zero 650 has come off.


On Few Models, To remove the existing handle have a look for clipped on covers hiding the screws.On others, With a small flat blade screw driver stick between the handle and the door trim on top and push it up and on the bottom push it down and you can access the screws in the handles and tighten.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How to move refrigerator handle to opposite side

In some cases they are designed in such a way where all you have to do is to remove the door and re-install it upside down to locate handle to the other side. Check to see if that's the case with yours!

I want to switch the doors from left to the right side

Hi, The parts are interchangeable (hinges & handles)
You should have some small plastic plugs/caps that are covering the holes already drilled for the change. Once you remove the doors and then remove the plugs, just reinsert the plugs into the old holes and switch hinges and door handles to the opposite spots.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Switching doors to open the opposite direction

Look on the other side of the door and see if there's a plug covering a hole even with where the door handle attaches on the opposite side. If so, I think you just unscrew the handle from the top of the fridge door or bottom of the freezer door an unhook the other end and reattach on the other side of the door. And unscrew and move the hinge to the opposite side. If your doors can be reversed the holes should arleady be in place. It didn't look overly difficult when the delivery guy changed mine when the fridge was delivered.
