My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
You did not provide a model number which is located on a label on the inside liner of your fresh food section.
Usually the door handles are held on in one of two ways.
1.) Inspect the sides of the door handles. Are there small allen wrench screws - tighten them.
2.) Ok, no screws on the side. There are mounting brackets screwed onto the door. At times the screws become loose. Use a little muscle and pull the handle up hard to release from the bracket. Tighten the screws on the bracket to the door. Position the handle back on the bracket and pull the handle down hard until secure.

refrigerator door handles out loose

My Sub is a 650S. Not sure your handle assy. is the same or not. But each of the 2 attachment points have a small 3/32" set screw on the bottom of each short piece between the vertical handle and the door. These set screws grab onto posts that are screwed into the door. There can be 3 points where the handle can work loose.
1. The set screw(s) have backed out and not holding tightly onto the door studs.
2. The studs in the door are loose and need to be tightened with a screw driver.
3. After loosening the handle via the set screws, when you look back into the cavity vacated by the studs from the door, (pivot handle clockwise past edge of door) you will see a Philips-head screw that secures the spacer to the handle. If the spacer is loose, tighten it with screw driver. Then mount back into door stud and tighten set screw. Problem Solved. Have a beer!!!
It is possible to tighten any fridge door handle but sometimes getting to the screws can be difficult. Begin by looking nder the door gasket right behind the handle and be prepared with a phillips head screw driver, the common size which is number two.
If my memory serves me correctly, you should see two posts attached to the refrigerator door right now. The handle slips over these posts and if you look closely there is a little hole in the handle where you would insert a allen key wrench to tighten the little screw against the post protruding from the door itself. With the door handle in your hand, properly match up the correct allen wrench to fit the allen screw very snug. Realign the door handle on the protrucing posts and tighten. Once finished, you should have a tight fitting door handle again. Let us know if we can help further.....Eric
Pulled the handle up to release it from the clips on the door. The screw in the plastic door handle that attaches the handle to the door clip was striped. I used a small amount of J B Weld epoxy to repair and reattach the screw. Realign the handle with the clips and push handle down to reinstall.
I may need to know your model # from the sticker inside the fridge to view a diagram but usually there is are small set screws (usually 2) on the handle which are allen head that can be tightened. Look for this first and let me know if there are no set screws. If this is your setup then I would appreciate a solved rating.
