Dometic refrigerator handle

I have a new 3010ds with the RM1350 refrigerator. One of the handles is not securely locking into place. It looks like all I need is another handle. My question is do I contact FR or Dometic for the new handle as it under warranty from both?

Try Forest River first. I had the same fridge in my past RV and replaced three handles over two years. In the end I had a few extra spares from Dometic. It's not a great designed handle and they keep breaking.

Refrigerator Handle

I have the same refrig. and have the same problem. I replaced the bottom right handle and it still won't stay latched. Seems as the latch needs to be moved to the right, but I see no adjustments. I have a strap attached on both sides that we attach when we move to keep the right side doors from opening up. Seems the latch is a very poor design.

If under warranty go to your dealer for new one, something else to keep in mind is that the handles do interchange, lower left goes to upper right and lower right goes to upper left, some times just changing them around they will work better I also keep a left and right as spares.

Dometic has changed the part number to a newer version. Is it a new and improved handle? It looks like the same!! ????

So how do we know if we have the old handle or the new handle. Mine seems to be ok except for the bottom left. It seems to have a mind of its own so I push the handle to the closed position to make it catch and it works for now. Do you have part numbers of the old and the new? Thanks.

I have spares at home with the part no. but I'm not there. If you order the handles it will be upgraded to the new ones. If I remember they call it a metal handle. It looks the same.

Regfrig. Handles

I called Dometic last week. The lady fumbled around on the computer for a while, then put me on hold. After a minute or so, she came back and said she found the redesigned handles. She said she would ship 4 handles out that day. She would never have looked if I had not told her I read on the forum they had been redesigned. I was not told the number and have not seen them yet.
