Stud for horizontal handle broke. Model MFI12568AES. Is this something that I can repair.

Are we talking the studs that come out of the door, so that the handle can be attached via the hex set screws? If that is the case you will need to improvise or spend alot of money. Go to hard ware store and find suitable replacement studs. Drill a pilot hole. "You can do it!"

Maytag MFD2561HES Freezer Door Locked, How do I get it open?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Here is the users manual that is probably inside the door you can not get open:

Find your model number and download the maual. The last 3 figits HES there is a problem with the number you passed. I am using this manual as a reference:

If your unit has the mini handle on the top right or top left gently lift and swing the door open. If you have the lone horizontal handle on the front of the freezer door it just pulls open and slides out.

If this is a NEW unit... you must remove the shipping tape from the door (2 to 3 places) to get it open.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

look for a small hole on one side of the handle. There should be a set screw there you can tighten. (the handle attaches to a ball shaped peg under the handle, and does not attach from the inside of the door)

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.

Want to replace painted front panel with stainless steel

The installation instructions and the Owner's Manual do not say how to replace the panel.  It may not be possible to change without replacing the entire door.
Look for trim near the top of the door that is attached by screws.  If the trim can be removed the old panel can be slid up and out and the new panel can be slid in.  Alternatively look for side trim piece(s) that might be removable allowing the panel to be slid in.

I may need to know your model # from the sticker inside the fridge to view a diagram but usually there is are small set screws (usually 2) on the handle which are allen head that can be tightened.  Look for this first and let me know if there are no set screws.  If this is your setup then I would appreciate a solved rating.
