Question about Refrigerators
4 week old fridge, we love it, but the fridge handle is loose and getting worse. it's a fridge on top, freezer on bottom. i can feel small holes along the bottom of the handles where i assume either small set screw or allen screws are but i can't see in there.
can someone tell me how to tighten the handle? i don't want to call for service just for this.
It's a Fisher Paykel E522BRXU EZKleen Stainless Steel 17.6 cu ft
Yes hello, I had the same problem - similar fridge model. Mine was the fridge (not freezer) door handle ie. the upper door. There are no small holes on the bottom of my fridge handle. Working from the outer door edge, I gently prized loose the plastic trim located under the door. I didn't take it completely off, just loosened about one quarter of the length, enough to flex the trim downward so that I could then access the phillips head screw that secures the fridge handle from the inside of the door. The trim will prevent you from using a conventional screw driver to tighten the screw. I used a screw driver bit which is only 25mm long. It has an hexagonal end to which I applied a small spanner and voila - the handle is once more secure. Good luck.
