If there are no setscrews and no trim from handle to top and bottom of door, then you should be able to just grab the handle and pull up on it and it should slide off the mounting posts.

How do I reattach handle on freezer door pull that has come unscrewed on French Samsung refrig


Many times the handle is slid on from one side or the other onto the screws. Try sliding the handle off by gently putting a screwdriver or putty knofe under the handle on the side that is still attached and pushing the handle sideways. This should remove the handle so you can remove the mounting screw and get it back on the door. then you can slide the door handle back on after getting the screw attached on the door again.

Loose handle


There is a long vertical handle held to the door by two short horizontal pieces. Run your finder along the under side of the two short pieces and feel for a very small indentation under each one. Each one is a set screw with an Allen head. Insert a small Allen wrench (English not Metric -- I don't know the size, but it is probably the next to the smallest in the set) into each one and back them out (counterclockwise looking up at the screw). The big vertical handle should come off when you back the Allen screws out far enough Now look into the short pieces sticking out from the door. Inside each one is a Philips screw holding the piece to the door. Tighten those screws with a small Philips screw driver making sure that the indents on the front of pieces will align with the vertical bar when you put it back on. When the Philips screws are tight, put the vertical bar back on and tighten the Allen screws. If you have some Loc-Tite, you might use that as well.

Sub-Zero 601R door handle is 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!!!

Sears trio elite ...french doors with bottom freezer...right side loose on freezer door handle...thanks


I have the same refrig. After taking the freezer basket hinges off, thinking I had to take the whole door a part to access the screws for the handle...my husband figured that the handle probably slides off...and yes that is just what it does!
Push the handle in a bit and then slide to the right. It takes a little bit of effort but that handle will come right off. Then you can tighten the screw that holds the clip in place. Then you line the handle back up to the clips, and slide to the left. Good Luck!

Door handle is loose


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
