SOURCE: Loose freezer door handle

Maytag uses two types of door handle mounts. first look at the bottom side of door handle to see if there are tiny set screws. If there is you might just have to tighten them with an allen wrench. If it doesn't you need to grasp the handle firmly and pull it towards your left, sometimes they can be a little stubburn and require a light wrap with a rubber mallet. This will remove the handle. In this case there will be a clip inside the handle end, check to see if it is bent or if the handle itself is cracked, although I have seen some where the handle mount has become loose and that can be tighted by turning clockwise.

SOURCE: Removing refrigerator door handles

You might try checking to see if the screw head is actually on the handle, but hidden by the handles cover. Look at the side and see if you notice a seam. This can be pried open and the screw head will be seen.

SOURCE: Amana AFI2538AEW bottom freezer door handle is loose?

My dad's freezer handle is loose, model ABB2224DEW. Went to partselect.com and located drawing of freezer door parts. Found a link to a "do-it-yourselfer" that describes removal and replacement of the handle. Hopefully this helps.

Replacement of freezer door handle.
1. Removed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle removal instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. Removing the handle requires inserting a plastic card at least 1.5 inches under the left end of the right side of the handle so it releases the butterfly clip latch on the freezer door. Next I pulled the right side of the handle to lift it away from the freezer door. Then still holding the handle away from the door, at the spot that is 1.5 inches from the inside of the right side of the handle, I held the plastic card vertically and slid one corner of it between the handle and the freezer door and worked the card down until it released the butterfly clip latch. Keeping the card at the same space under the handle so the latch was released, I then turned the card to the left until it was horizontal and was lifting the left end of the right door handle away from the freezer door. I then slid the handle across the card to the left until it cleared both door butterfly clip latches and it lifted off the door.
2. Installed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle installation instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. The handle is curved on one edge and must be installed the curved side down. Correctly installed, the outside ends of the handle curve upward and the handle curve is down so it looks like a frowning mouth. Next holding the handle curved edge down, I turned it up so I could see the brackets and held it against the door. I lined up the handle brackets slightly to the left of the butterfly clips on the freezer door. Next I turned the handle with the brackets against the freezer door and slid it slightly to the right until the left side of the handle held onto the door butterfly clip by itself but was not latched. Then I lined up the right handle bracket with the right freezer door butterfly clip and carefully slid the whole handle to the right until I heard the left butterfly clip latch click. Next I slid the handle back slightly left once more and then slid it back to the right until I heard the right butterfly clip latch click.

Push the handle in and slide it to the side. It should come off and you can tighten the screws and re-attach the same way. I just about destroyed my door before i figured this out.

There is two allen set screws for each hand at both end and they are facing each other on the handles.. Remove the allen screw and put a very minute speck of jelly on each screw---small-small amount. This will kept the set screws from loosen up. GB...stewbison

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)

Mod# RFG297AA:Need to remove the freezer section or handle/latch


there are two screws on each side of the bottom freezer unit you need to remove. they can be removed after de-installing the front bin with the two plastic sleeves on the right and left. Then you can remove the bottom drawer door and the bins inside. next, open both top doors and angle the fridge with one door inside the door frame, then "walk" the fridge over the doorstoop, turning towards the inside door as you push. Follow thru with the rest of the unit, then re-attach the bottom drawer.

I pulled too hard on the inside door handle now the door wont open from the inside the latch doesnt seem to catch


likely the rod from the handle to the latch has fallen off or the handle is broken where the rod attaches...you need to take the handle off and perhaps the door panel as well and take a look in there. It isn't hard to do but too long to write out. Either get a chiltons or haynes manual or just be careful and remove all screws. the bottom part is held on by push in "Christmas trees" or clips and just pulls out.

Freezer handle has de-attached from door on right side - can it be repaired? I cannot see how you could get at the bracket from inside the freezer door.


I checked the owners manual - found that two small screws holding the bracket on came loose - reattached the screws, then de-attached the handel from left side so entire handle was off. Then slid handle on both brackets left to right until it clicked on.

Power windows -window falls inside the door, won't go up


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you should see the cause.
It could be the window has fallen off it's base (not likely), a cable has disconnected or broken (most likely), motor burned out (maybe)

Hi, Please get me the model # from the label inside the refrigerator and I will look this up for you. Most handles have a set screw that tightens down.
