Pella Doorwall handle replacement
A home owner from Michigan says:

My door handle broke off on my older Pella doorwall. From the paperwork that came with the house the door was installed around 1993-1995. The clay colored side is the exterior and the screws snapped off in the handle. I know I need a screw kit and I think I will need a new tan/clay colored exterior handle because I don't think I can back out the snapped off screws. Depending on the cost I might replace the interior side as well. Are these handles still available?

Thanks for posting! It looks like you're having trouble with your handle's screws. If I were you, I would see if you can repair them before you research replacing handles, as this hardware tends to be extremely expensive.
To start, please look at our 82-067 Pella sliding door handle screw kit. Search around online for tools and tips on how to extract the broken screws that snapped off.
