Question and Answers


What can I do to a door that sticks on a Kenmore refrigerator, model number 106.44569600? My door handle loose, how do I tighten it?


Core issue: Kenmore refrigerator, model number 106.44569600, door sticks and door handle is loose.

Resolution: Door that is hard to open can be caused from either:

  • Vacuum created when a door is first closed. Vacuum pressure created when door(s) are first closed makes opening door difficult.
  • Door gasket is dirty and sticky. When there is sticky residue on cabinet face it causes the gasket to stick, thus making the door hard to open.
To make door(s) easier to open:

  • Allow 10 - 15 seconds for pressure to equalize before trying to open door.
  • Re-clean door gaskets with mild soap and water.
  • It is also possible to lubricate the gaskets on the hinge side of the door with petroleum jelly to make opening easier.

To tighten the handle:

  • Apply firm pressure with your hand on the face of trim. Slide top trim up and bottom trim down away from the handle. Lift trim pieces off shoulder screws.
  • Tighten screws. May need to replace screws if stripped.
  • Replace trim.
