Handles loose on Frigidaire fridge doors


Jeff, If you can not see any visible screws, look for molded removable trim caps on the handle, remove and tighten screws. If no trim caps then your handle is probably mounted to fridge with screws in slotted slide, which get slid off by pulling straight up on handle, normally takes a lot of force to slide up and out. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do you remove the door handles from a viking professional bottom mount 36" refrigerator?


Carefully pry out the "beauty covers" where the handles come into contact with the doors. The screws should be visible. Be careful removing the covers and store them in a baggy so you know where they are when you put it back together. Make sure you note which side is "up" on the handles.

I want to switch the side that the door opens on my refrigerator. Everything looks simple enough except where the handle meets the door. My assumption is that once I unscrew the top portion of the...


This is generic because you did not include the make and model number. Had you provided that info we most likely could have provided you with the installation instructions that would show you exactly what to do.

Having said that... To release the plastic on the top of the TOP hinge use a butter knife on top of a putty knife so you don't dent or scratch the top. Gently lift in and outward and upward direction and it will come right off. Of this us a 2 horizontal swing door model the center hinge is inverted on the opposite side. Sometimes the lower hinge is also inverted. Other times you have to remove the hinge pin and place it on the other side of the hinge bracket. It is not a difficult task but it sure is helpful to have 2 people when installing the larger door. What ever you do leave the pliers off the job / at least away from the refrigerator. You might need them to switch the lower hinge pin installed position. The door handle usually on the lower portion (Screw part) may have a plastic insert covering the screw that you can gently remove with a small knife blade prying around the edges if the insert piece. Other handles it is exactly the opposite of what you stated... you slide the handle DOWN to expose the mounting screw.

If you need more help please include your make and model number and I will do my best to find exact model installation instructions for you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I need to remove and change to the other side the GE GDL20KCSABS refrigerator door handle. The manual is unclear and there is no screw visible at all and trying to slide the handle up off the mounting is...


The handle does slide up off of the handle bracket where a screw will be visible . Remove the screws and on the other side of the door , remove the faceplate for the top screw and the plug for the bottom screw . These should pop back in the screw holes from where the handle was . If you do not see a small hex screw close to the top of the handle and bottom , then yes , the handle will pop upwards to remove . Dont try by just lifting , pop upwards with your hand or rubber mallet . Remember , these handles were made to be tight on the doors to last a long time without comeing loose .

Hotpoint side by side no dispensor door handle loose


Removing the door gasket would probably reveal screws to separate both shells of the door - warning: door gaskets are expensive and may be hard to find on a fridge that old, so be gentle with it.

Change the door opening from left to right. Can it be done?


According to the owners manual for the HSB03, there are no instructions for reversing the door, therefore it is not reversible as by the companies instructions. I would not recommend reversing the door, even if it appears as though it could be done. There may be vital components within the unit that are not visible from the outside that could be damaged by the hinge screws in the wrong place.

This is the Haier web site if you need it. http://www.haier.com/index.htm

Exterior rear door handle on Honda Accord 2001


To Remove Door Panel on 2001 Honda Accord:

A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:

1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button
2- Push (slide) the whole assembly Forward (toward front of car)
Besides the screw, it is held in place by 3 hooks on the backside that hook into holes in the metal door frame
3- Now unhook handle from small metal bar going through door by pushing (toward door) plastic clip (blue?) off of the bar, then the bar will come out of the clip hole, thus releasing the handle.
4- Depress little grey button /bar (purple painted on it)on elec. connector to seperate connector, thus releasing door lock switch

Now the whole assembly (metal handle, door lock switch, and plastic piece) will come off door panel

B: The door is held on by 2-screws, 7-plastic snaps/plugs, and 1-plastic plug.

The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall)
The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel.
The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim


C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.

D: Light lens prys off from bottom. Unscrew (1/4 turn) the light assembly with bulb still intact from backside of panel

E: Remove the Hand-Hold/window switch assembly:
