Refrigerator Door Handle Repair

The point at which the door handle attaches to the refrigerator is usually well-hidden, building a repair seem more complicated than it really is. Should you inspect the manage carefully, however, you can usually locate the screws which hold it in place or at least the panel which covers the screws.

Screws and Tracks

Inspect the manage to discover the attachment point. If you’re able to see the screws, use an Allen wrench or screwdriver to tighten the screws to repair a loose manage, or remove them and replace a cracked handle. When the screws are hidden, try sliding the handle up or to the lefthand. Do not put so much pressure that it will damage or break the grip, but use enough to determine whether it slides away on a track or is attached by screws. Slide off the handle if it is not screwed on, and tighten the screws on the tracks, or remove the whole assembly if you’re replacing the grip. To get a handle attached by screws, look for a tiny removable panel. The panel might slide out of the way or you might want to gently pry it away. Remove the panel and tighten the screws, or loosen them to remove the handle.
