Usually there is a small hex screw somewhere near where the handle meets the door. If you can find one, then just tighten it. Otherwise you might have to take the door apart if there isnt any apparant way the handle attaches to the door.

Door handle on my freezer I swear loose. GE profile model PDSFOMFXARWW


Door handles on appliances , like outside handles on cars & trucks, are held on by screws inside the door.
You would need to completely dismantle ( take apart) the lid of the freezer, including removing the inner liner and the insulation to access the screws, that you might tighten them.
You are looking at a big job, because you must the reassemble it! And, you should not need to swear.
God bless your efforts.

Handles loose on Frigidaire fridge doors


Jeff, If you can not see any visible screws, look for molded removable trim caps on the handle, remove and tighten screws. If no trim caps then your handle is probably mounted to fridge with screws in slotted slide, which get slid off by pulling straight up on handle, normally takes a lot of force to slide up and out. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do I tighten door handle on frigidaire model jsi-26


Good Morning Chris, thank you for your inquiry!

From my understanding you need to tighten the door handles on your Frigidaire refrigerator. I was unable to locate any information on your model JSI-26. Without the model number I would be unable to provide you with proper instructions on how to tighten your door handle. Could you please provide me with your model number? You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the right hand wall of your refrigerator. With that information I would be able to assist you further. -Matt

Whirlpool gold side by side door handle is loose.I can't find the way to tighten. IT appears the screws are underneath the rubber gasket, but I am a little wary of tearing it loose without anew gasket.


Most door handles now are front repairable. I can't tell without the model number which style you have, but most units have an insert in the door handle. You have to pry this insert out, to get to the screws for the handle. Some handles actually clip on to the door by sliding the handle up or down to clip it on or off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

The handle on my refrigerator door (Admiral side by side model LSD2615HEZ) is loose. How do you tighten the handle?


There is a plastic card that came with the refrigerator. Pull the handle towards you and slide the card between the door and handle on the top side of the lower handle. Slide the card until it stops, I believe its 11/16". Next slide the handle upward to release it. It may take some force to release the handle. Once its removed, you will see a bracket on the handle. In my case, the screws were loose. Tighten the screws and replace the handle and its fixed. To reinstall the handle, line up the handle with the brackets on the door. Slide down until you here a click that indicates that the handle is installed properly.

The freezer handle is loose on one side. How can


Check to see if your freezer handle has an inlay in the handle or trim that pops off to get at a screw that holds the handle onto the door. If you don't have this then you may have a handle that literally slides up and off. You then tighten the mounting screws or replace the handle if that is what is making it loose. We no longer can tear apart the doors on refrigerators to get at components inside, because the factory puts these together and shoots liquid insulation into the cavity, and this insulation expands and hardens making it impossible to tear doors apart anymore. This is why most handles now are front repairable. Good Luck. Appliance Specialists

On my Kenmore Elite #106.56683501 the refrigerator door is loose


Depending on the model, and the color, here's your fix.

Stainless with stainless handles- you'll need a hex key. The tiny hole is on the inside of the handle, close to the center. Turn the key until it's tightened.

Stainless with black handle/white/bisque/black- push the door handle up. Careful not to scratch the finish! once the handle pops, pull it straight off. Take a phillips head screw driver, tighten the top screw A LITTLE BIT and then attach again. Insert screws on the door into the holes on the handle, slide down. (will need to be a little tough with it.)
Good luck!
