Question about Amerock Hardware & Accessories

Open Question

I need a backset replacement for a 1980's Atrium Door.

This door has wider than normal glass panels which resulted in a "stubby" lever with a 2" backset. The backset and working parts of the door are one piece. I've been told that Atrium Company quit making them and National Lock made them for a while and then their operation was taken over the Amerock. However, I've been unable to locate the part. My levers are antique brass and are still functional, but I need the interior one piece replacement part that includes the 2" backset. One side of the lever handset has stationary pins that go through the 1-piece working part to secure it in the hole cut for the door hardware.

SOURCE: no ice to the door

The motor is behind the ice bin and yes, it can get water on it and freeze up. I actually fixed one a month ago that I had to remove the motor and let it dry at room temp for a week in order to get it to work when reinstalled. Two or three days and it would freeze right back up in a little while. This usually happens when you've had a problem with the waterfall into the ice reservoir that a bit pours over the edge or when you've defrosted the freezer or left it open long enough to let ice thaw to some degree. You can pull the ice bin out and twist the motor by hand. If it is stuck it is froze but if it moves it is probably bad. You can close the switch with the door open and check with a volt-meter to see if there is voltage going to it if the motor turns freely. It will have a lot of tension but you can turn by hand.

How to install new door lock

For a residential door, you may choose either 2 3/4" (70 mm) backset or 2 3/8" (60 mm) backset. Some locks are not adjustable.
Choose the backset required for the lock. Check the thickness of the door. Standard installation height is 35-36" above the floor.
Bore a 1" diameter hole into the edge of the door and a 2 1/8" hole through the face. A drilling jig helps align these two holes. If you measure and mark the holes carefully and drill accurately, it can be done without a jig, but for about $20.00 the jig helps avoid lock alignment problems or possibly trashing a door. Follow the instructions for the jig and the lock manufacturers instructions.

Replacing door knob need short backset

There are locks with short backsets, but Kwikset doesn't make them. If your door has such a narrow stile that you cannot put a household duty lock into it, you are probably not interested in security, so anything you can find will do the job. Look online for locks for French windows or patio doors.

If you are interested in security, then check out Adams Rite locks, which are used in narrow stile aluminum storefront doors, but they also make some for wood doors.

If you are replacing a very old lock and your style is big enough for a 2-3/8" backset lock, then do it right and treat it like a new installation. Use a jig that can hold the hole saw in the right place, use a router to cut away trim that will get in the way of the lock, and install a modern lockset.

You can shake front door when locked and the door is loose not tight

It sounds like the distance between the lock in the door and the strike plate in the door frame is barely enough to meet securely. Review the lock installation sheet because it MAY be possible to adjust the "backset" for your lock. You did not mention your brand of lock. For example,
Review Steps 1 & 2 of instructions for the Powerbolt:
Or watch this excellent installation video for the Schlage BE365, at about1:58 minutes into the video you will see how to adjust the backset:
Go to

Then click on "Installing your BE365 Keypad Deadbolt" video.

Many brands of lock have a similar backset adjustment, and you may have your set too short.
If yours is all ready set for the 2 3/4" backset, then you need some carpenter skills to close up the door gap.

Hello Is it possible to remove the glass door panels for cleaning? I can remove the door but I want to clean the glass panels separately. Many thanks Jill

With the door removed, I would suggest to lay it on a flat surface, look at the door around the edges. Normally you can see 2-3 screws around the bottom and 2-3 screws around the top edge. By removing them you can disassemble the door. Be-careful as you disassemble the door, pay close attention to how it can apart to reassemble when your done. This job should not require any special tool other then a screwdriver. Do not force anything back together. This should be about a 30-min job or less depending on the cleaning part on the glass. Go luck.. P.S. - it is glass your dealing with, some of the edges can cut you if handle in the wrong unsafe manner.

The back glass after opening it, it wont close unless i stick my hand inside the door panel and push the lever that allows the glass to shut. i am trying to find the part for it and i am not having any...

Its called the rear glass latch or rear window latch. It would be available thru a dodge dealership, but obviously expensive. You may try a large parts store like Autozone or Pep Boyz. The third alternative is to call auto wreckers in your area. Its the same latch from 2000-2005 Liberty's. It isn't that hard to remove. The rear door panel needs to be removed, then the latch is attached with 2 bolts, and an electric cable.

I do not know what part #83242 is. A search of several reliable parts web sources, yielded no positive results. So, I'm guessing this may be a door handle(?). If so, to access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you need to remove the entire door, simply open it all the way and lift at the hinges. The door will lift off the hinge mounts. You may wish to remove the door for an easier means of working on it. Especially, if the microwave is mounted above your range.

If you have questions, please let me know. If this is not what you are needing assistance with, please post back with the name of the part you are trying to replace. I hope you find this information helpful.
