LG Fridge Handle Broken – How to Fix

When a fridge door handle is broken, it isn’t usually repairable. It’s best to replace it.

To do this, you will need a 1/4 inch and a 3/32-inch Allen wrench. You will also need a new door handle to replace the broken one.

If you have assembled these, then follow the steps below:

Step 1

Disconnect the refrigerator from electric power or switch it off.

Step 2

Open the door with the broken handle. Use the 3/32- inch Allen wrench to unscrew the bolts holding the handle to the door. The bolts are located on the right side and left side of the handles.

Step 3

Detach the unscrewed handle and prepare to replace it with a new one.

Step 4

Before replacing the broken handle, ensure to tighten the support mounts on which the handle will be placed using the use of your ¼-inch Allen wrench.

The support mounts are short protruding pegs fastened to the doors of the fridge and unto which the handle screws are tightened.

Step 5

Place the handle on the support mounts, ensuring that it aligns well before making the screws tight with the 3/32-inch Allen wrench.

Step 6

Check for the efficiency of the handle by opening and shutting the door several times. Reconnect the refrigerator to the electric power supply.

How to Fix an LG Freezer Handle

Like the fridge door handle, the freezer door handle cannot be repaired when broken. And to fix a broken one, you will need a ⅛-inch Allen wrench, a ¼-inch Allen wrench, and a new freezer handle.

When these are in place, follow the steps below:

Step 1

Disconnect the refrigerator from electric power or switch it off.

Step 2

Use the one 1/8th Allen wrench to unscrew the bolts holding the handle to the freezer door.

Step 3

Detach the handle. Ensure that the support mounts on which the handle will be placed is well screwed, using the 1/4 inch Allen wrench.

The support mounts are short protruding pegs fastened to the door of the freezer and unto which the handle screws are tightened.

Step 4

Place the new one on the mounts, ensuring that it is well-aligned. Then make the screws tight.

Step 5

Check for the efficiency of the handle by opening and shutting the freezer several times. Then reconnect the unit to electricity.

Important Notes

Ensure that the refrigerator isn’t connected to power while carrying out any of these activities. Also, make sure that the broken handles are replaced with LG handles of the same refrigerator models.
