This is the third handle that has broken in 4 years of owning this fridge. I keep going and getting a replacement handle and it keeps breaking at the swivel pin mechanism after 12 months. Is there a solution for this problem or am I the only one. Perhaps there is a metal equivalent but the spare parts vendor doesn't know of any.

look for the model number at the front, bottom of the fridge where the door meets the fridge body (eg 22021-D). Go to shop.onlineappliancespares.com.au and either buy the whole handle ($150) or just the broken lugs ($15)
There is a plug (cap) that goes into the pivot point of the release handle for the third row seats. If that plug is missing, you can stick a penny in there temporarily to enable the release and fold the seats down. The replacement part is called a "release handle plug" -- I found it at moparpartsovestock.com, part number 1ED82BD1AA for under $4.
From your description, what has happened is the wire inside the handle has broken. The wire on its own is not available as a seperate spare part item, to replace this you'd need to replace the handlebar.

You can order new "cap handles" (the plastic parts that join the aluminum handle to the door for 3.99 each plus 8.99 shipping and handling at the Sears Parts Direct Website. The part number is DE67-00222C. When you have the parts in hand, open the microwave oven door. On the inside surface of the door their is a black plastic frame around the door that pops off easily (gently use a screw driver to pry up the door frame) so that you can have access to the screws that attach the end caps to the door. You will need to hold the remant of the cap handle (the part that is probably broken off even with the glass surface on the outside side of the door) still while you unscrew the screws. Once the screws and broken remnant of the handle caps are out, you are ready to put new handle caps on the handle, then put the handle with the new handle caps on the door. By the way, Samsung was absolutely NO help with this. The agent I chatted with denied that their were any reports of the handles breaking off, so I had to cut and past the postings about the door handle breaking off ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE under "Community Q and A" into the chat box -- still the agent did not acknowldege the existance of these reports...or the possibility of a poor design. I asked for them to send me a couple of the $4 parts as a good will gesture....got nothing but lofty words about Samsung commitment etc. and only a authorized technition blah blah, no action. All you need is a strong thumbnail, a phillips head screw driver, new handle caps.
Yes, if it is actually really broken you can look for and aftermarket door handle or go to the dealer (which will be more money of course!). There are many aftermarket dealers of door parts all over the web, just take your time! I bought my own chrome door handles for a old muscle car I drive and it was approx$35 total for both door handles chrome and beautiful and the door locks with fittings and 2 keys!!!
I have broken 4 shark handles, have repaired them its a pain. remove the screws on the handle end of the head pop out the broken handle part, drill a 3/16 hole into the part tap 1/4 inch threads use a countersunk head 1/4 inch bolt screw it together put epoxy on the inside to lock threads reassemble. its a pain. two small keepers lock the swivel together pry out with a screwdriver carefully dont loose them. I broke one shark handle when it was brand new. this repair works good if you like alot of fooling around
Remove the door trim inside by loosen 3 bolt with screw driver, then pull out the door trim, after that loosen the hex.bolt (3 hex-bolt) on lock mechanism bracket, after that you can loose bolt (4 hex bolt) on handle cover. Be careful to not drop the bolt, because the gap on sliding door is too narrow. After you removing the handle assembly you can see where is the broken. You can remove the handle from cover by removing pin clips on it. To fixing the broken handle you can just using plastic glue or you can drill a small hole and put some small wire to reinforce the plastic.
I tried different ways of putting the door handle and lock together. It took me 5 hours to eventually work it out. Now the problem is solved.
I took a digital photograph of the lock before I put it back onto the machine, so now I have a permanent record to refer to next time. I say next time, because we've had 2 Servis Washing Machines, and between the 2 machines, the door handle has broken 4 times, through no fault of ours, each time having waited for the time switch to deactivate.
I think by now the company ought to make the plastic piece that keeps snapping, out of aluminium.
