The right side of the lower freezer door handle broke. It has broken away from the door and left the metal adapter on door. How hard will it be for us to repair with new part. We haven't even attempted to remove it yet. Would really like to repair it for our self. Will a special tool be required.
Answer JSK, Yes, you will need a "special" tool, an old credit card or a putty knife with the blade taped off, to keep from damaging the panel. Here's some help " To Remove: 1. At the right end, flex the handle base away from the surface of the freezer drawer. Simultaneously slide the door handle removal card that came with your refrigerator under the right side base of the handle. Slide the card to the line indication or until it stops, which will be approximately 11/2".2. With both hands, firmly grasp the handle towards the right base. 3. Slide toward the left, lift and remove from the surface. Materials Needed • Gloves to protect hands. Phillips screwdriver. • Plastic handle removal card (or 1/32” thick plastic card). Retain the card. 1. Align door handle clips slightly to the left of the tabs attached to the freezer door. 2. Rotate the handle so the left base is flat against the door. 3. Push the left handle base against the left door tab and slightly to the right, just
enough to allow it to hang unsupported. 4. While firmly supporting the left handle base against the door, align the right base of the handle with the right tabs that are attached to the door. 5. Now, while firmly holding the handle at the left and right bases, gently slide the handle towards the right until the right base settles in. The handle should now be flat against the face of the freezer door at both the left and right bases." Good Luck and Thanks
