Your refrigerator has a standard door with a freezer door
(Style 1) or freezer drawer (Style 2). Follow the instructions
specific to your model.
All graphics referenced in the following instructions are
included later in this section after "Final Steps." The graphics
shown are for a right-hand swing refrigerator (hinges factory
installed on the right).
If you only want to remove and replace the doors see

Hinges."
Before you begin, turn the refrigerator control OFF, and
remove food and adjustable door or utility bins from the
doors.
Remove and Replace Refrigerator Door Handles

To remove the handle, remove the screw attaching the trim to
the upper end of the handle. Using a flat-blade screw driver
wrapped in masking tape, pry the trim piece from the lower
end of the handle. Then, remove the screws attaching the
handle to the door. See Front Mount graphic 2.
To replace handle, reverse directions.
Style 2
To remove the handle, remove the three screws attaching the
handle to the edge of the door. See Graphic 2.
To replace the handle, align the holes in the handle with the
