I have a side by side Kitchenaid KSR Model. I need to remove the door handles so I can get it thru a door way. Is there an easy way to do this without having to remove the doors?

    Doors are actually pretty easy, remove top plastic hinge cover, it just snaps on and off then remove one or two screws mounting hinge to fridge body, it is much easier than it looks as well as the fridge will be that much less heavy to maneuver around tight spaces...

I have a Kitchenaide side by side frig and freezer. The freezer is a model KSCS251 and about ten years old. It has got a loose freezer handle. what do I need to tighten it.


There should be a few more letters and numbers in the model number. I suspect the 1 should be read as an I. Look up your model here: https://www.kitchenaid.com/customer-service/manuals/ .

For the KSCS25INMS03, there are set screw on the top and bottom of the handle for the freezer. The screws are visible from the side of the handle facing the refrigerator section of the side-by-side design. See the freezer door parts diagram for your model. One model parts diagram is here: https://www.kitchenaid.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10128953.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Model KEBC277 Kitchenaid oven - I need to remove the upper door, but can't figure out how to unlatch the hinge


there will be two hinge latches that you flip to stop the door from closing. This will allow you to push the door in and then pull out the bottom. I do not suggenst using the handle as it may cause damage. use one hand on either side of the door, push the door shut and then lift up a bit and pull the hinges out of the holes.

Here's my standard post on getting into the doors:

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

See if the end caps will pry off of the handles and see if there is a screw holding it on. You need to post your model number for more specific info.

Mod# RFG297AA:Need to remove the freezer section or handle/latch


there are two screws on each side of the bottom freezer unit you need to remove. they can be removed after de-installing the front bin with the two plastic sleeves on the right and left. Then you can remove the bottom drawer door and the bins inside. next, open both top doors and angle the fridge with one door inside the door frame, then "walk" the fridge over the doorstoop, turning towards the inside door as you push. Follow thru with the rest of the unit, then re-attach the bottom drawer.

you should have trim below and above the handle if not then and its a stainless steel door then there is small round opening on the side of the handle you'll need allen wrenches once you loosen the allen the handle slides up or down then you will be able to tighten the stud post screw then reverse the mounting -----------------be cautious of scratching the stainless steel door when removing the handles

Door Handle Loose and tightening with allen wrench does NOT work ...


Just did this on mine today. Use an allen wrench to back off both the upper and lower set screws (Note: you do not need to back them all the way out). The handle will then easily pull away from the door. With a 1/4" socket, tighten the screws holding the upper and lower lugs on the door. Place the handle back on and tighten the upper and lower set screws.

Handle on oven door falling


Murray...after a DJ here in NY from the '60's!

First, why is the handle falling off? Is it loose or damaged? Most of these handles are only plastic with holes tapped in. If the holes are damaged and you can't fix them, you will have to replace. Most handles are through bolted in the door. You should be able to access those screws from the inside of the door. If not....

How do take a door apart: First locate any screws in the bottom of the door. Remove them. Open the door and remove screws from the sides and inside of door. Get help supporting the outside of the door and note that it will snap shut when you remove any weight from the door. Caution, most door glass is not well clipped in...it may come loose!!!! You may want to take pictures of the inside of the door once you open it. Once the door is apart, locate any fasteners holding the handle and attempt to tighten them. If not successful, you'll need that new handle. Get an extra set of hands to help with removal and reinstallation of that door skin. You'll need 'em!
