Dometic 4-Door Fridge

I pulled a little faux pas this afternoon and posted my question on the wrong forum - The R-Pod forum. Geesh! That's what I get for trying to start a new thread on my tablet.



DW went to open the fridge last weekend and was a little over-zealous. She broke one of the handles on the fridge door.

Anyone have an email for the refrigerator section of Dometic? I need to get a new handle.
TIA.


Larry

Worst handles/latch system ever.
If in warranty, I got mine from Forest River. One broke 8 months into ownership and they sent all 4 (it looks like there are really only 2 different ones).
Can't help you with an email but contact info should be on their website or owners manual. Good luck.

Well, I looked on Amazon - saw a couple different suppliers and a wide price range, depending on if shipping was free or not - and if I would be taxed (usually am through Amazon). Saw where Dometic itself had the fridge handle for $25.41! Great price. So I called and asked what the catch was..... S&H is $15!!!!! That's $40 for this awful piece of plastic.
Did a little more checking and ultimately bought a handle/latch from WalMart, of all places. $25.99 shipped free and no tax.

Dometic 4-Door Fridge

I broke the lower right handle (fridge section) the first few days we owned our 2019 Sunseeker 3010 DS. It was quite embarrassing as I was showing friends how itís done. These 4 plastic handles are ridiculously fragile and the doors are tough to open. Being replaced under warranty but are going to have to use two hands to open them in the future, one hand on the handle and the other on the edge of the door. Donít know what else you can do to prevent future breakage.

I am not a big believer in extended warranties but if you register your fridge you can extend the warranty to 5 years for a reasonable price.

On the one in my 2016 3010DS, I found that If I take the handle as if I were going to open the door, first, push in on the handle, then pull to open, it opens easier, and, knock on wood, I haven't broken one yet.

I broke one handle off as soon as we brought it home as I was showing some friends. Weíve been waiting for a replacement since April. These handles are the poorest design.
