The airline broke the handle (probably by throwing too much weight on it), and the handle now won't stay in a fixed position (adjusted for height). Since it hangs loose, I cannot push the stroller with one hand (have to use both hands to place above the two buttons, that we press to adjust the handlebar for height). I don;t see any screws around that area to take the handle apart and see if something can be done. Looks like I would have to replace the entire frame? This is a $700 stroller, really would like to keep it around for child # 2 :-)

Probably has a broken or jammed lock When you position the seat try pulling/pushing the handle instead of relying on the spring to engage the lock. If the seat frame is broken remove it for repair or replace with another seat back
door handle broke depends on what door handle it is.if door cant be open on out side out side door handle broke.if cant open door on inside inside door handle broke.door handle clip that connects to latch rod broken.when you try open door handle not engage to latch rod.door not going open.have to replace door handle with new clip holds latch rod in place.
The door skin needs to be removed you will need 1/4" drive ratchet, extensions, metric box end wrenches, a long needle nose pliers, screw drivers,a pro pick set and some mechanical ability, verify the linkage is intact, if it is you probably have a broken handle, if the outer handle is broke E-Bay has them new and used or you can go the dealer route. the time to repair is usually 1 to 2 hours.

Most likely there is a part missing from the door latch mechanism that you need. This probably broke off when the handle failed. It would be a tab or wedge shaped piece of plastic that strikes the door switch and pushes the switch closed when the door is completely shut. You will need to find that piece and glue it back on or get a new handle assembly from Samsung.
The inside door handle itself is probably broken.There is a weak point where the handle joins at the pivot(my 99 Chevy work truck handle broke so many times that I got fed up and fabricated my own handle from solid steel!) I believe this part is the same one in a 95 model year truck.The assembly (handle and surrounding plastic stuff) is only a few bucks(try RockAuto.com).The handle usually will break completely off when it starts to crack,but not always.
Joe, your probably right and the handle is broken, the rest of the mechanism maybe just fine, you should see an access panel that can be removed so you can undo the broken handle and replace it. Hope this helps, let me know
It is possible to open from the outside. Remove the plastic piece that broke off from the outside of the tailgate. Use a penlight and you will see the mechanism. Get a small screwdriver and place into the hold...You can feel it spring when you have it in the right place...Push down on the screwdriver to make the mechanism pull the release cable. Make sure the vehicle is unlocked..It should work...My mechanic can open it in 10 secs with this method.
i beleive the release handles are in the trunk. Unless the release handle broke or cable is broken it is probably out of adjustment. Try having someone lean into the seat backrest and then pull release handle. I'm assuming your talking about your backrest release. If you are refering to the seat cushion-they can be tough but try putting some weight down on the cushion and then try pulling the release handle at each side of the seat.
Ooo, an airline damaged my handle of my Maclaren XT last year. If you go to your local baby shop and ask if they act as Maclaren agents, they can order you 2 new handles, here in Australia they quoted my $39. I had to get my husbands work to pop the existing rivits and then Maclaren supplied screws to attach the new handles sent.
