Sears Best Storm Door handle replacement

A quick learner from Richmond, VA says:
I have an old Sears Best Storm Door model number 94865133271 that the handle has broken an needs to be replaced, if possible. The part number for the door handle is 17656, and Sears no longer makes this door or handle. Are there any replacements that would work? Thank you for your help!

There is, as a matter of fact. While the old Sears handle is no longer made, I believe you can use our 40-131 as a substitute.
