To fix this you will need an Allen wrench small one there are 2 set screws on the inside part of the handle (on side toward the center) you wil need to tighten these to fix your problem

u could always set the handle in place where it needs to be and use caulk or super glue to go around the handle and that should help it stay in place if that doesnt work the website www.amana.com to see if it has warranty for the broken handle good luck

I have the same problem and I can offer a temporary solution until you can get the handle replaced.

Remove the plastic handle guard. (It's simple- just open the screw cover and remove the screw.)

Push in on the rear of the triangular lock with your thumb and the door SHOULD open. At least it works for me.

SOURCE: kelvinator Opal CS 390 F door has dropped down on handle side.

My sister has the same fridge model. We've removed the door and the bottom bracket supporting the hinge had collapsed up inside the door. We're going to cut out a piece of steel (3-4mm thick) and glue it along the bottom of the door in order for the door hinge to insert into something solid. Looks like it's a weak point in the door construction. Pity Kelvinator wouldn't acknowledge the problem and come up with a solution (other than replacing the door at $340 - which is what we were quoted).

The freezer handle is loose on one side. How can


Check to see if your freezer handle has an inlay in the handle or trim that pops off to get at a screw that holds the handle onto the door. If you don't have this then you may have a handle that literally slides up and off. You then tighten the mounting screws or replace the handle if that is what is making it loose. We no longer can tear apart the doors on refrigerators to get at components inside, because the factory puts these together and shoots liquid insulation into the cavity, and this insulation expands and hardens making it impossible to tear doors apart anymore. This is why most handles now are front repairable. Good Luck. Appliance Specialists

Shelf locators broken of the back the freezer on kelvinator impression series 500l


hi When a refrigerator gasket (usually a rubber seal around the door) becomes hard or cracked, its seal is broken, and the unit's efficiency drops sharply. Test the door gasket for leaks by placing a dollar bill between the gasket and the door jamb and closing the door. Pull the bill out. If it offers some resistance, chances are the gasket fits properly. If the bill comes right out, or falls out, the gasket is faulty and should be replaced. Test the gasket at several locations around the door. Before you replace the gasket, check the door hinges for leakage.

Handle on oven door falling


Murray...after a DJ here in NY from the '60's!

First, why is the handle falling off? Is it loose or damaged? Most of these handles are only plastic with holes tapped in. If the holes are damaged and you can't fix them, you will have to replace. Most handles are through bolted in the door. You should be able to access those screws from the inside of the door. If not....

How do take a door apart: First locate any screws in the bottom of the door. Remove them. Open the door and remove screws from the sides and inside of door. Get help supporting the outside of the door and note that it will snap shut when you remove any weight from the door. Caution, most door glass is not well clipped in...it may come loose!!!! You may want to take pictures of the inside of the door once you open it. Once the door is apart, locate any fasteners holding the handle and attempt to tighten them. If not successful, you'll need that new handle. Get an extra set of hands to help with removal and reinstallation of that door skin. You'll need 'em!
