Handle It: How to Remove and Replace a Kenmore Refrigerator Door Handle
Do you have a Kenmore refrigerator with a broken or missing handle? If so, youre probably wondering how to remove the door handles so that you can replace them. Fortunately, removing refrigerator door handles on a Kenmore is a relatively easy process that anyone can do. Heres how to do it.
First, youll need to locate the screws that hold your refrigerator door handle in place. On most Kenmore refrigerators, these screws are located on the inside of the door. To access the screws, youll need to open the door and look for a small notch on the side of the handle. This is where the screws are located.
Once youve located the screws, youll need to use a flathead screwdriver to remove them. Once the screws are removed, you can gently pull the door handle away from the refrigerator.
Its important to note that refrigerator door handles can be made of different materials, such as plastic or metal. If your handle is made of plastic, youll need to be extra careful when removing it. Plastic door handles can break easily, so use caution when pulling them away from the refrigerator.
Once the door handle is removed, youll need to clean the area around the screws. This is important to ensure that the new handle will be able to attach properly. Use a clean cloth and some soap and water to wipe away any dirt or debris from the area.
Now youre ready to install the new door handle. Youll need to line up the holes on the handle with the screws on the refrigerator. Use a screwdriver to tighten the screws, and make sure theyre securely attached.
Once the screws are tight, you can use a screwdriver to check the handle for any looseness. If its loose, youll need to tighten the screws again. Once the handle is secure, you can close the door and make sure the handle is operating properly.
Congratulations! Youve successfully removed and replaced your refrigerator door handle. With a few simple tools and a little bit of patience, you can have your Kenmore refrigerator looking and working like new again.
