There are several methods. If you are able/willing to remove the handles from the refrigerator, you can submerge them and soak them in a solution of equal parts bleach and water overnight, then rinse off.

If you do not want to remove the handles, you can moisten the handles, put some Comet onto a sponge scouring pad and scrub away, it will take some elbow grease, but will eventually take the yellowing out.

    I tried the Comet method with no results and man did I scrub. What finally worked was a simple coat of Sherwin Williams super paint. I painted the handles from top to bottom and my husband thought I had replaced them when he saw them.

What is the main differences between cosmetic teeth whitening treatment and the teeth whitening treatment performed at the dental office?


The cosmetic teeth whitening treatment is not permanent and gives result only for sometime while with teeth whitening treatment (Zahnaufhellung M?nche) you get free for some years like 5 years. So if you are planning to whiten your teeth i would prefer teeth whitening treatment. Good Luck.

All my profile appliances have yellow plastic.


You could get some refrigerator paint at the hardware store and paint the handles white, or you could use white contact paper to cover the yellow.

The white plastic(?) full length door handles OUTSIDE the refrig are turning yellow on my white, side by side refrig. What can I purchase or use to re-whiten them and make them look clean and white again?


That yellow coloring is most likely a result of the white paint coming off, and the yellow plastic color showing underneath. Other than painting them with a good paint, which you would have to ask a paint expert for the proper type, my suggestion is to replace the handles altogether.

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

GE Profile Refrigerator model #TXP24PRYE with yellowed handles


Hi,

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.

Thanks.

GE Side by Side refrigerator door handles yellowing


The brillant person posted the perfect solution. We just tried it this weekend. The plastic composite on the handles is not UV protected plastic, so it yellows or turns brown over time. You can't clean it, as it's a defect due to light exposure. We downloaded a diagram of our fridge and learned how to take off the handles. The top and bottom white portions pop off, but be careful when doing so. We gently lifted them off the metal backing and put a butter knife underneath so we would not damage the plastic. You can then see the clips that hold them in place. Gently pry them and they will pop out. You have to remove the top and bottom pieces first then it will expose the screws that hold the handles in place. You need a star type screwdriver-we found one at Home Depot. The metal strip is a simple backing and will just stay in place. Now, the key is the Krylon Fusion paint-Satin White, like the one person wrote. It's for plastic. Clean off the handles and make sure they are dry. Tape off the portions you don't want paint on and spray them outside with the paint. It dries quickly, but we waited about 8 hrs to put them back on. Just put them back on with the handles first and then the top and bottom portions-they cover the screws. Ours now look brand new! Cost? Only $6.50 for the can of paint and we got it at Walmart. If we had to replace them w/new handles? About $175. Thank you to whomever it was that shared this idea. It really works!
