This door handle is used for both refrigerators and freezers to easily open and close the door. If your handle is broken, loose, or damaged, you should replace this part to ensure easier access to your appliance. Please note: handle insert and screws are not included. Buy screws separately. The door handle is white in color. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for installation instructions and accurate guidance. Remember to wear work gloves as a safety precaution.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This is not the handle. This is the decorative front insert. This part is for your freezer and is white in color. The insert measures approximately 10 inches long. This part is often replaced along with the handle itself. If this part has broken, cracked, or fallen off, it may need to be replaced after repeated use. To install the new handle insert, you must simply pry the old one off and snap the new one into place; no tools required. This is an original OEM part that comes right from the manufacturer.
It was very easy to remove the broken parts of the freezer door handle still secured by screws and then attach the new handle. However, I was shocked to find that the door handle screw cover plate was not included as part of the door handle replacement issued, which I felt was misleading. Fortunately that portion from my old broken handle was still intact, though is yellowed with age, so was able to snap that in place on the new partial-handle replacement which you sent. It seems to me that to omit this portion as part of the complete handle replacement didn't make much sense, as it rendered the new replacement handle incomplete.

The repair was really easy - I used a phillips head screw driver to remove the screws and broken pieces of the handle, screwed the new one on and snapped the handle insert into place. I was thrilled to be able to find the parts so easily (the information you have online is really helpful!), the parts arrived much faster than I anticipated and the handle was easily replaced! Thank you!
I ordered the handle , which was easy and resonable priced. I used a cordless screw driver . And it was done in under 30 seconds . Quick repair
Old handle was off already. Took the to screws from old handle, put the new one on screwed it on and that did it.
installed new handle
By simply popping off the handle cover the two screws were revealed which attach the handle to the door. New handle fit exactly like the old one. Easy peezzy lemon squeezy.
I was surprised that the screws and trim piece were not included so make sure you have them from the old handle or order new. First removed the broken ends still on the freezer. I removed the small metal brackets from the old handle and put them on the new one, screwed the handle to the freezer and put the trim piece on. Real easy.
first removed two screws that held handle. Then replaced. Ordered a motor 3 years ago from land office with verbal over counter instructions and that was easier but to get part this time was very simple ! With the model number and name brand input on site I had part in 3 days instead of waiting for a chance to visit land store and HOPE they had the part. Y'all might consider a zoom feature for us older folks.
We removed the trim and the screws and kept them in a safe place until the handle arrived. It took only about 10 minutes start to finish. Very Easy!
