Frigidaire/Electrolux - Door Handle Is Trash
Refrigerator - Complaint
Frigidaire refrigerator model FFHT1826LW4. Bought this fridge new for an apartment. The lower (fresh food) door handle broke after 8 months. replaced it with a new handle which broke in the same place after 7 months.
This is an obvious design deficiency. The place where the handle breaks is thin plastic less than 3/8 thick. New handles cost almost $38.00. Frigidaire/Electrolux needs to redesign these handles and go back to metal instead of cheap plastic.
The elderly lady in the apartment lost her balance when the last handle broke and could have suffered a bad fall. I intend to report this to Consumer Safety Commission.
