Customer Question
Trying to replace door...

Trying to replace door handles on kenmore cold spot model(###) ###-####

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Mfg date is 6-95. Mod. 106.(###) ###-####

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. I have removed the top and bottom caps. Can’t figure out the trim/old handles and don’t want to break it.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I have screwdriver and if needed, hammer, drill, saw and tnt 😃

Let's start with the TNT. Just kidding, but these handles are no easy to remove. You have to pry and remove the upper and lower trim pieces of the handle strip in order to see the screws at the top and bottom of the handle so you can unscrew the handle and remove it. Below is a video that shows the process on this style handle. The video is replacing a GE handle, but the process is the same for your model.

Not the same... :( I will wait for hubby...
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 8 months ago

It is the same, I do this for a living. If you can't do it yourself see if your husband can do it for you or call warranty because the process is the same as the video I gave you.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
