Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have 2 schlage door handles that are suppose to be able to be used right or left handed. I can't get the handle to turn to the opposite direction. (if it is set to be installed as right handed, I need it to be left handed). Of course, I no longer have the instructions. I have been able to change these in the past but can't remember how I did it.

How does the door handle even know if it is in a right or left handled door?
The handle should retract the latch with a quarter turn clockwise OR counterclockwise, so it should make no difference at all.
The only thing that is right or left handed is the direction the latch bevel points, so that it will retract when you push the door shut.
And the latch has nothing to do with the handle.

Are these circular door knobs, or is this a handle that has to then point at the hinges?
Because it seems to me that if the direction the handle points is the problem, you simply put them on the wrong side of the door.

Toilet handle too hard to flush?


You can purchase a new handle assembly. It appears that something has cracked or broken in the current one. Just remember, the threads on the nut inside the tank are left-handed. They turn the opposite direction than most threaded fittings. Good luck.

New deadbolt notworking?


You have the lever that goes from the key cylinder part of the lock through the striker portion of the locking assembly turned part way, either in the wrong direction or not turned enough in the right direction so if you take the inside portion of the lock off and pull the outside portion out of the door and rotate the lever to its proper position and then put if all back together in the correct sequence it should work properly.

The man remodeling my bathroom says I received two left handles on my roman tub faucet..but I noticed the tiny small screw on each handle going in the same direction on each handle ..did he put it in...


Hi,
No, he is right, the handles turn in opposite directions... the cold CW and the hot CCW... you cannot change the direction of the on/off sequence...and the rotation direction... so... yes you will need to send back the wrong one and get the right one or send back the whole set and get it replaced...

How do I flip the handles around, or is there a seperate one for right hand and left handed doors.


There are retaining screws on one side that hold the outside to the inside or vice versa. You will also have to switch latch so that tapered end goes into frame at opposite angle that it is now. Just turn it upside down.

Amana AFI2538AEW bottom freezer door handle is loose?


My dad's freezer handle is loose, model ABB2224DEW. Went to partselect.com and located drawing of freezer door parts. Found a link to a "do-it-yourselfer" that describes removal and replacement of the handle. Hopefully this helps.

Replacement of freezer door handle.
1. Removed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle removal instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. Removing the handle requires inserting a plastic card at least 1.5 inches under the left end of the right side of the handle so it releases the butterfly clip latch on the freezer door. Next I pulled the right side of the handle to lift it away from the freezer door. Then still holding the handle away from the door, at the spot that is 1.5 inches from the inside of the right side of the handle, I held the plastic card vertically and slid one corner of it between the handle and the freezer door and worked the card down until it released the butterfly clip latch. Keeping the card at the same space under the handle so the latch was released, I then turned the card to the left until it was horizontal and was lifting the left end of the right door handle away from the freezer door. I then slid the handle across the card to the left until it cleared both door butterfly clip latches and it lifted off the door.
2. Installed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle installation instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. The handle is curved on one edge and must be installed the curved side down. Correctly installed, the outside ends of the handle curve upward and the handle curve is down so it looks like a frowning mouth. Next holding the handle curved edge down, I turned it up so I could see the brackets and held it against the door. I lined up the handle brackets slightly to the left of the butterfly clips on the freezer door. Next I turned the handle with the brackets against the freezer door and slid it slightly to the right until the left side of the handle held onto the door butterfly clip by itself but was not latched. Then I lined up the right handle bracket with the right freezer door butterfly clip and carefully slid the whole handle to the right until I heard the left butterfly clip latch click. Next I slid the handle back slightly left once more and then slid it back to the right until I heard the right butterfly clip latch click.

You'll need to remove the top hinge cover from whatever side it is on currently and then lift the door off the hings post ( set the door aside) .. then the top of the fridge will have small removable caps that hide the nuts for where you fasten the hinge to that side. Reinstall those caps to hide the holes in the top of the fridge where the hinge used to be. Next, you will have to transfer the handle on the door to the opposite side ( same process as the hinge) .. You wil find small plastic caps that hide the holes you'll be using to secure the handle to the opposite side,. use the same process for the freezer door too..This process only applies to top/bottom type freezers and not side by side. Hope that helps

The handle can only be changed by separating the outer and inner shells of the door. You can pull the outer shell off the inner shell by removing the three screws at the end of the door and then using firm force to pull the shells apart. It helps to gently pry along the bottom, top and inside (nearest the hinges) with a thin flathead screwdriver or other very thin metal object. You don't have to get it all the way loose; just a little is fine. You can then use the two clasps on the back of the door (that hold it shut when it's closed) to pull with. I found that inserting a slim screwdriver into the lower clasp and using that as a handle (not a lever!) gives you a better grip. Hold the outer shell of the door with your left hand while pulling the inner shell in the opposite direction. Be carefull not to twist or bend the clasps; they are plastic and will break. The shells will pull apart and then you can access the screws that hold the handle. Change the handle then press the door shells back together. Make sure they are snug all around. Replace the three end screws and you're done.
