CustomerEster from Wellington FL

Needed to replace handles on fridge door

I just slid a flat head screwdriver under each handle piece (between the original white handles and chrome plate), and slightly twisted. The pieces popped right off. I did this to the top, and bottom pieces covering the handle on the door.
After that I used a star like screwdriver (not sure exactly of the size) to unscrew the piece holding the actual handle bar to the door.
From there I just reversed my order and put everything back together. Almost like Legos.
Really easy job.

CustomerWilliam from DeBary FL

Handles had yellowed excessively and looked terrible against the still-white refrigerate.

Popped off the tail handles at the top and bottom of each handle. The main handles were attached at the top and bottom with a star-head screw. I filed a flat-head screwdriver blade until I could fit it inside two slots of the star-head screw. Then I removed the screws, took off the old handles, put on the new handles, and put the screws back in. Then I popped the new tail handles back in and the refrigerator looks as good as new.

Handles had discolored

Simply used flat head screw driver to snap off the upper and lower tail handles, and a star head screw driver to remove the handle and replace them.
Saved about $125 in labor costs.

CustomerPamela from Glendora CA

Handles had turned yellow.

Placed a used fridge from a friend into a condo I am selling. Thought it would be nice to include, but the yellow handles against the nice white body was UGLY. Found this great site, read reviews, and ordered the parts. Was very easy. Have to have a flathead screwdriver to carefully remove the Upper and Lower Tail pieces. You need an Allen wrench for the Door Handle screws. Its the one that is shaped like an L and has six sides. When putting on the new tail pieces slip the large end on first, it has a tongue that slips into the handle, then pop it in working to the thin end.
