Default How to remove the keezer handle?

I didn't think far enough in advance. The chest freezer's handle is in the way of one of my tap handles!

I was originally thinking it was glued down, but it appears to be screwed into place. I'm not aware of how to take apart a lid, but I imagine it can be done? I don't want to totally screw it up.

Without seeing it, I would say: Remove the seal, remove the inner liner on the door, remove the screws that hold the handle on.

Be advised, the screws that hold the seal on, ( if so constructed), may be common to retaining the inner liner.

Got it! I was able to flip over the seal to see the plastic snaps that hold it all in place (they do appear to be common). I wonder where I can buy a replacement seal for a particular fridge? Do you guys typically go after market, or OEM from the manufacturer? It's a Frigidaire 7.2cu, but not sure if they're all universal.

Do you need a new seal?

Is that one torn, (yet)?

You can go either one on the seal, as they are PROBABLY sourced from the same manufacturer.

Then again, the fridge manufacturer may cut and miter them, and fit them on site, from bulk stock.

No I don't think I need a new seal but thought I'd ask. I don't doubt that eventually in my life it will need replacing.
