Handles Breaking on my Frigidaire Model #FFHT1826LQA Refrigerator/Freezer

by Audrey R.

I am writing this review because I need to know if the problems are only happening to my refrigerator.

My question is if any one has had problems with their Frigedaire Refrigerator Handle Breaking?

Mine have had problem after problem with this. Seriously since I got this fridg I have had to replace it 4 times! If that wasn't enough, when I called the company that sold me they said it was my fault! They claim it has to do with the fact that I tightened the handle too much.

Well Guess what, it wasn't me that tightened it too much -- it was the guys who delivered it that put it on that tightened it. How is that my fault?

I would get that this would be a problem that I'm responsible for except that my daughter, who lives several hundred miles away in Denver, has the same Frigidaire refrigerator and her handle is broken too.

So if any one hears about recall on my Refrigerator FFHT1826LQA please let me know!

I've had it for only 3yrs and the handle keeps on breaking and, no, I am not pulling or hanging on it.

I love my frigidaire refrigerator execept the handles keep breaking in the same spot over and over again. Whats up with that? Have replaced 6 handles over the last 4 years. Does anyone know if there's been a recall?

Cheaply made product but expensive NEW

I just ordered online the second set of plastic handles for my Frigidare refrigerator which we have had for a few years. The first set broke early on, one at a time. We have no children or rough people pulling on them.

They must be very cheaply made, though I was shocked at the price which came to $68 with shipping. No tax was taken out, and it does not even include the screws. That is a separate order. Never had this problem before with previous refrigerators, even with a large family. What is wrong with this company?

It's a design flaw NEW
by: Anonymous

Instead of putting the screws one behind the other, they should be parallel. With this design, only one screw carries the load every time the door is opened. Failure is unavoidable. The only thing you can do is make sure you use the bottom of the handle every time you open the door to lessen the load on the screws.

Broken Handle NEW

My 82 year old mom bought a Frigidaire fridge, March 2017. Just over a year later handle snaps off. The same spot at the top where it’s screwed in that other people have complained about. The manufacturer said they aren’t aware of an issue. I will never buy a Frigidaire. They likely make a ton of money selling replacement handles and because they are cosmetic they aren’t covered by a warranty.
