    Yes I do know where to get a replacement handle. Contact the company (Danby). You can order the handle. It costs about $3.00 plus shipping. I ordered two just in case. It is a little tricky taking off the old one and putting the new one on because of the spring inside, but I was able to do it. The handle is a little bit loose, but I can open and close the door with the handle now. If you have trouble opening it with the broken handle, use a butterknife to gently pry it open.

Ordered a new handle, $3.78, got it UPS in a few days. Took 2 screws and 5 minutes to replace.

I am looking all over for a freezer door handle on model AFD2535DES silver handle that cracked on my Amana Freezer door - do you know where I can locate a new one - everyone is saying discontinued

Yes.
First, type the model number in to the correct space on the web-site "SearsPartsDirect" to get the schematic for that unit, and you will also get a part number or two.
You may even find that handle available through them.
Next, take that part number to Amazon or E-bay, and you should find that handle available.
God bless your efforts.

My Kenmore HE dryer door handle has cracked. How

Carefully remove the door from the dryer by removing the screws from the hinges and lie on a flat surface face down. Lay a towel under the door to prevent scratching the door window. Remove the screws from the back of the dryer door and the hinge. The back panel should lift off exposing the screws holding the handle in place.

Searspartsdirect.com has some excellent exploded view diagrams that you can work from as well.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Loose Oven door handle

Ok you need to use plastic or rubber washers against the glass so it doesn't break. To stop the handle comming loose again you need to put "Lock Tight" on the screw threads then tighten carefully only untill the handle isn't loose. You can get this from any good hardware store. cheers

Please give feedback

Door handle on the front load washer cracked off

I just fixed this problem - it is very easy and Danby was very helpful.

FIRST OFF - Why this happens: when the washer finishes a cycle, you must wait and additional 2 MINUTES prior to the washer unlocking. That is probably why people break the washer.

Now for the solution - Danby sells the part for under $5.00, part number 533. They will send you a pdf file with an illustration of all the washer parts so if something else broke, you could replace it.

go to Danby.com or call 419-425-8627

Sometimes there is a long wait which is no fun. Ask the receptionist to put you thru to the manager and the manager will take your number and have a parts person call you.

Good luck!
