Both Frigidaire handles are praised for their low prices, easy installation and quality. However, some reviews mention that they are prone to breaking easily and need to be replaced relatively often. Other Amazon.com users caution against buying these handles without determining whether or not they are the correct model.
According to the reviews for both Frigidaire handles, they do not include screws. Before making a purchase, consumers should contact the manufacturer and verify that the model of the handle is suitable for use on a specific refrigerator.
Refrigerator door handles can be purchased through online retailers such as Amazon.com or Repair Clinic as well as the manufacturers themselves. Hardware stores such as Lowe's also stock them. Door handles are typically replaced due to damage or discoloration caused by constant use. If the handle is made of a porous material, dirt seeps in and permanently changes the color. While damage is usually cosmetic, the handle can occasionally break off entirely.
