Door Handle

$45.75
Fix Number: FIX427922
Manufacturer #: 218428101
Manufactured by: Frigidaire

Product Description

This handle works on both the fridge and freezer door, and if yours has become damaged it should be replaced. This is a genuine OEM replacement part, and is sold individually. If you need to replace both handles, please be sure to order the correct quantity. This is an easy repair that requires the use of a Phillips screwdriver. If the old handle is still attached to the door, remove the two screws (located at the top of the fridge door, or bottom of the freezer door) and then slide the opposite end off of the single screw. When attaching the new handle, do this in the opposite order. Slide the keyhole in the handle onto the individual screw on the door, then line up the other end of the handle and insert the two screws to secure the handle to the door.

    tripped in kitchen and hit the door handle and broke it away from the screw.
    I first watched the video showing how to replace the door and when I got the part, remembered how they fixed it and did it myself. It was very easy and made me feel good that I didn't have to call anyone in to help me. Thank you.
