Question about Refrigerators
I have a ten yr. old GE Refrig. that the rubber door handle is turning brown from use, it looks ugly and I don't want to replace it. Any suggestions on how to paint the rubber. Also the chrome around the handle is wearing off and turning black, any solutions for that. The Refrig is in great condition except for that...thanks, Sherry
Go to searspartsdirect.com with your model #. Find part # in parts list for handle. Then go to eBay, Amazon, etc and do search for part #.

any paint you use will wear off and any chrome paint you use will wear off also
GE spares may still have the items as spare parts so call them

It happens from not being cleaned and the gasket sticking when u open the doors
Depending on how bad the rips are... you will need to replace if too bad.. i have used silicone in a caulking tube .. to repair them.. use vasoline after to keep from sticking to the door on fram or door and on gasket

I had this problem on this model and just repaired it.... and I am no mechanic. The bottom of the handle was loose. You'll see there is a cap on the top and bottom of the handle. You need to pop the cover off of the end that is loose. For the bottom part of the handle, I used a flat head screwdriver under the most southern portion of the handle, lifted the handle of the screwdriver towards me. The cover popped with minimal effort. Tighten the screw and replace cover. Pretty, pretty, pretty easy!

SOURCE: GE French Door handle loose
To tighten the screw the first step is to remove the handle. With this model just pull straight up on the handle. It can take a little force but after it finally unclips it moves up an inch or two then pulls straight out. Good luck!
