Refrigerator rubber door handle

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 #.

No fix
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

We have the same problem and were told to apply vaseline to the rubber edges of the door; this did help.

SOURCE: Ge profile refrigerator door handle is loose

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!

I have a 10 year old GE Monogram refrig. We noticed a small puddle of oily liquid on floor beneath freezer door. It is accumulating about 1 tsp/day.


certain amount of oil is in the compressor motor casing to stop it burning out
it is under the same pressure as the refrigerant

I would say the oil comes from that casing
you could turn the fridge off at the wall
bring the fridge out to get behind it
and degrease the area to see if the leak is severe

if it is..... needs a fridge technician

not sure
check if cost of replacing the motor compressor unit
on a ten year old ge
might be more that fridge is worth

GE pss25ngnacc____refrigrato is to cold can't control tem


start by putting freezer control on half way on the numers. lets say it goes to ten set on five, do the same on refrig side . let run for 24 hrs. so it can stabalize. if it is ok in freezer and things are frozen and too cold in fridge side turn the refrig side to one smaller number. check again in 24 hrs. don't keep opening the door so that it can stabalize. if that doesnt work then it could be the cold control not senseing the temp of the refrig.

I have a 3 yr old ge Profile side by side refridgerator model #psc23sgrdss with the following problem. on 3 occasions in the last 3 wks I've found the temp. in the refrig section very high ( 56 degrees and...


I had same issue this past week. Refrigerator up to 45 freezer up to 15. Ice would melt and then everything would get cold again. Ice formed on everything. Next thing you know it was warming up again. I knew the rubber seal on door flap that opens to let ice out warped during summer months because I keep it 78 in summer. Had that replaced today. Temperatures have gone back to normal and stayed ALL DAY (knock on wood). Check door flap seal sticking your hand up making sure you don't push in the water tab. You should be able to feel if it is warped/wavy like an old LP or not. Good Luck.

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..

Loose refrigerator door handle


weavie, this is one of those ugly little problems. Get hold of a small screwdriver, a pointy knife blade or similar and stick it into the gap, however small, between the cap and the handle. You may be able to find a small indent or similar near the bottom side of the cap. Gently pry up. It will yield. Be patient.

GE GSS20IE Ice Maker


Even though the fridge was given to you it still has a 1 yr warranty from manufacture date.  Look on the sticker inside the fridge and see if it gives the manufacture date or get the receipt from you gave it to you.  Call 1-800-905-9505 for service.  They are nationwide (US).  If you find out it is older than 1 yr then use the model # on that sticker and go to www3.sears.com to get the correct part # for the icemaker.  Unfortunately these come as a whole unit and can't replace parts.  Once you have the correct part # I bet will find a good price on ebay for a new ice maker.  If you need help finding the part # or any other questions let me know.  If you feel I didn't help solve your problem please let me know before you rate this solution.
