This handle end cap kit, also known as a door handle end cap, includes both the upper and lower door handle caps for freezers and fresh food compartment handles. Used in refrigerators and freezers, the end cap covers the rear of the door handles. If your door does not close or open properly, this kit can solve the issue. *Please note: The handle is not included because they must be ordered separately. The only available color is chrome, the rest have been discontinued. Please refer to the diagram provided by the manufacturer for instructions.

I unscrewed the top broken end cap and bottom end cap (had to match-up the chrome pieces), attached the handle to both of the new end caps, and using a phillips screw driver, screwed them back on to the refrigerator. Very easy.The blow-up illustration I used to order the part, it was very helpful.

First of all, I looked at the blow apart diagrams on Part Select website. That made it really easy to determine the parts I needed to complete the repair. Once I had received the parts and verified that all had arrived in good order, it took me 5 minutes and a Phillips screwdriver to do the rest.
Found the model number of my refrigerator, sat down at my computer, went to PartSelect.com, easily found what I needed and ordered it. A couple of days later the part was at my door. With a srewdriver in hand and In less than 5 minutes the repair was complete and good as new. Total cost of repair$15.44. Of coarse I had to charge the wife a service call LOL
Purchased replacement set of brackets.Unscrewed broken and other brackets.Replaced brackets and handles.Done.
The repair was REALLY SIMPLE. I popped off the cap cover from the existing end cap, insert the door handle to the new end cap, screw on the new end cap with a Phillips screw driver, and then push the old cap cover back on. Took less than 10 minutes, if that.
I Clean the handle both top and bottom. I place the cap in place on the bottom of the handle and tap it in snug with a hammer. I then place the top of the handle back into it's original position and then I screwed the end cap in place at the bottom. EASY !!
The repair was so easy. All I had to do was take out the screws, and fit the new pieces in. Even though the new pieces were chrome plated plastic (unlike the original metal black ones) you can't tell that they didn't come that way. It makes the refrigerator almost look brand new! When we move out our landlords will definitely have received an upgrade!
Removed the one screw and replaced with new end cap. Only disappointment was the beige color, as I would have preferred a white one. White color was not offered. Other than that it took less than five minutes. I'd rate it 4 stars.
