SOURCE: Freezer Door handle came off after 1 yr.

I had this problem with the bottom freezer door of my Amana.
What I did was slide off the entire door handle by applying pressure pushing toward the right to get the handle off. Once the handle was off, I slid the clip (which was still clipped on to the door) off and screwed it back on to the handle. Once the clip was tightly secured to the back side of the handle, I carefully slid the handle bar back on to the door by sliding it to the left back on to the door clips until it clicked securely back into place.

SOURCE: bottom freezer door handle loose

There is a plastic card that you are supposed to slide under the right side of the handle. Once you have done this correctly the whole handle should slide off to the left.

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.

SOURCE: Bottom Freezer door handle

I had the same problem. It took me an hour to figure out that the bottom freezer handles clips onto the door using butterfly clips. To tighten the clips you have to remove the handle by sliding it to the right (or left??) It snaps right out with a quick **** exposing the clips underneath. A quick tightening of the clips and the handle snaps back in.

How do I reattach handle on freezer door pull that has come unscrewed on French Samsung refrig


Many times the handle is slid on from one side or the other onto the screws. Try sliding the handle off by gently putting a screwdriver or putty knofe under the handle on the side that is still attached and pushing the handle sideways. This should remove the handle so you can remove the mounting screw and get it back on the door. then you can slide the door handle back on after getting the screw attached on the door again.

It looks like the silver handle is pushed onto the black plastic insert, which must be removed from the handle, fixed to the door and then the handle reattached.

I have a kitchenaid KBLS19KTSS 01 bottom freezer, and the freezer handle has come off on one side. do I need to disassemble the door to reattach it? Or, do the small screws on the bottom of the handle...


It looks like your handle is the style that slips over a screw that is threaded into the face of the door...
According to your owner's manual you most likely just tighten the small allen head screws to secure it. It lists the screw size as 3/32. You should have been left the allen head with your paperwork when you bought it.

GE Energy Star French Door Bottom Freezer handle popped off


You cant find a hole to insert screw from outside. It is true, and you can't fix it yourself to what it looked like earlier. The company first screws in through the handle and then covers the hole made by it with the material of the handle. If you have to fix it yourself, you can only pierce those screws through the handle leaving the mark behind. If you don't want that, contact your company or dealer.

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.

Open the door a few inches, to the first hold-open stage. Lift the door upward & off the mounting bars. There will be screws along the bottom edge.

Bottom freezer handle


At both ends and actually inside the ends of the handle, are small metal brackets that are attached to the door face by a single screw.
You access the screws by pulling the plastic plugs, using a very small and thin flat bladed screw driver.
My handle was loose but hadn't come off on it's own. But I couldn't get the handle to fully tighten.
My fix was to wrap each end bracket with a couple layers of electrical tape (not covering the screw hole) and reattached the handle.
It is now very tight, as it should be.
