SOURCE: Door handle loose on Model GSS25WGTA

There is a cover that runs up and down the door. This cover is removed simply by using a thin screw driver and peeling it off. You will find the Bolts under this cover. BE CAREFUL not to over tighten the bolts..

Good Luck

SOURCE: Loose door handle GE two door freezer/frig model TFG 22JADAWW

Called and watched mechanic who clipped of top and bottom covers with a screw driver then tightened both screws and replaced covers. Cost was $100 but I could have wrecked the door. Needs a special little star shaped screw driver head with ratchet fitting. Now equipped for next time.

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.

SOURCE: Whirlpool conquest side by side Refrigerator model GS6SHAXMQ00

I called GE. They offered to send a repairman out and waive the service charge. The repairman came out the next morning and tightened all the "screws" which are a certain type that I have never heard of. Maybe we can go to Home Depot and get this special kind of screwdriver. It is not a hex screw driver but some other type that I don't recall the name.

How to fix loose freezer handle on whirlpool refrigerator


This repair is not as easy as you might expect. The door gasket, inner door panel, and insulation must be removed to get at the screws attaching the door handle.

GB2FHGXB01


Are you sure of the model number? I don't see a Whirlpool GB2FHGXB01 ; I do see a model GB2FHDXWB01.

For this model, there are several different door handles. One has a Philips head screw hidden under a trim piece. To expose the screw firmly push the trim away from the center of the handle. (This is for a standard Whirlpool fridge door handle.)

The French door style refrigerators have slightly different door handles. One uses Allen screws as set screws to secure the handle. (This screw needs a 3/32" Allen screw (hex key) and you can access it through a small hole in the underside of the handle on the loose side.) Be careful not to overtighten the screw or you may strip the threads and have to replace parts.

The other option has the handle mounted on brackets on the door. To access the bracket, grasp the freezer handle and pull it to the left. Then pull the handle away from the refrigerator.

For pictures of the handles, see pages 9 and 10 of the manual. It's available here: https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/User%20Instructions%20-%20W10366204.pdf .

I hope this helps. If you do have the GB2FHGXB01, check if any of these directions help. Most refrigerators use one of the above door handle designs.

Oven door handle is loose on Model RF366BXD self cleaning range, how do we tighten the door handle?


Extend your door hinges and remove entirely over to a table or other flat surface where you can do a step-by-step dis-assembly. Unfortunately, to get at the interior of the handle unit, it's the final stage of the taking apart. Begin by removing the bolts at the bottom of the door, then the main panel and side flanges can be removed. (You can give your glass a good cleaning at this point also.) There are 2 bolts to remove to free up the handle unit, and now you can easily tighten (or replace as needed) the 2 pairs of handle bolts. Reverse your order to re-assemble, and put your door back on the oven. It's not as bad an exercise as it would appear. Just take your time and watch what you're doing. I used the hinges as a shim, and had it laid out on a pool table for easy, elevated examination.

The screws holding the handle on the oven door have come loose. How do you get at the screws to tighten them? It is a Whirlpool range designer model.


Without a model #, I would say you need to take the oven door off and disassemble it to get at the screws holding the door handle. Some models have screws going right through the door to hold the handle on. Best of to call a certified repair company such as Sears.

Need help replacing handle on whirlpool microwave model MH1150XM


Remove two screws on top at front in order to remove plastic front vent grill. Then the door lifts off pin hinges. Lay door flat on surface. Plastic trim snaps off with gentle prying (start at bottom middle and bottom hinge side). Then remove six screws holding notched metal section with door latch. This piece will also snap out (several visible clips holding it around edges). Then remove door handle screws, Replace handle and reverse process to put back together.

Loose freezer door handle on my whirlpool side-by-side refrigerat


you should be able to pull straight up on the handle (with force) and it will come loose from the retaining screw. usually its just the retaining clip that comes loose from the door but sometimes you will have to replace the entire handle to repair the unit. if your not having any luck getting it off message me with a complete model number for your refrigerator and i will see if i can get you a little  more detailed information. thx peyton

Door handle on 2dr model GS6SHAXMB00 is loose on the top and it will not slide up and off like the reference book shows. How to fix


jjust grab the bottom of the handle and the top and pull up slowly but firmly it will pop loose. If the handle is wiggly then just tighter the screws on the handle to tighten it. It will require a star key so if you dont have one just use pliers to tighten it. be sure to put handle back same way you found it because it has a slight curve on it. good luck! email me if anything at chrisrubio827@yahoo.com
