SOURCE: Ge profile refrigerator door handle is loose

I had this problem on this model and just repaired it.... and I am no mechanic. The bottom of the handle was loose. You'll see there is a cap on the top and bottom of the handle. You need to pop the cover off of the end that is loose. For the bottom part of the handle, I used a flat head screwdriver under the most southern portion of the handle, lifted the handle of the screwdriver towards me. The cover popped with minimal effort. Tighten the screw and replace cover. Pretty, pretty, pretty easy!

SOURCE: Loose door handles.

There was a plastic card the size of a credit card that came with the refigerator that helps release the handles. If you don have this you can use any stiff plastic card ie: blockbuster card, store card etc...

Pull the handle away from you while inserting the card in the top or bottom of the handle based on your model. I believe the Admiral model LSD2615HEB required the card be inserted 11/16 of an inch. This should release the handle. Once released there are 4 hex screws located on the handle that may require tightening.

To reinstall: Match the hardware up just above the final location and then slide down, this should lock the handle back into place.

SOURCE: GE Refrigerator side by side loose door handles

I was actually trying to find a solution to this problem myself though I'm pretty sure I already know the solution. Try this: grip the handle that's loose firmly and jerk it up. The handle should come up and the straight out to reveal the spring clip mechanism holding the handle on. Tighten the screws on this and then put the handle back on by pushing it towards the fridge and jerking it down. You make want to protect the fridge above and below were the handle attaches so you don't scratch the fridge door when pulling the handle on or off.

SOURCE: The handle on my refrigerator door (Admiral side

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.

SOURCE: Door Handle Loose and tightening with allen wrench does NOT work ...

Just did this on mine today. Use an allen wrench to back off both the upper and lower set screws (Note: you do not need to back them all the way out). The handle will then easily pull away from the door. With a 1/4" socket, tighten the screws holding the upper and lower lugs on the door. Place the handle back on and tighten the upper and lower set screws.

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

I have the Frigidaire Model BFHS2611LMO Side by Side and the handle on the right side is very loose. I took off the rubber seal on inside of door but dont see any screws to tighten. How do I tighten


The model number is actually BFHS2611LM0. The handles have keyhole openings that fit over the pair of screws (near the top and bottom of the handle) on the outside of the doors. Try pushing the right side handle forward and down to lock it back onto those screws. If that doesn't solve the problem, push the handle up and then lift it off the screws. Then tighten the screws a bit (or replace them if they have stripped threads). Then replace the handle over the screws and push the handle down. Do not overtighten the screws; that can damage the door components. The manuals is available from Frigidaire's support site: http://b2b.frigidaire.com/support/manuals.asp . The support page for your refrigerator is here: http://b2b.frigidaire.com/support/ResultsPage.asp?strModel=BFHS2611LM0&User=&Search=Search . The parts diagram shows how the handles are attached; it's the last link on the support page.

I hope this helps.

Tighten door handle on frigidaire side by side refrigeratoar


Hello - Generally speaking, Frigidaire refrigerators do not have a way to tighten door handles. I would suggest contacting a professional due to either the screws are not secured all the way through or they may have to take multiple layers off to correct the issue.

Freezer door handle is loose


Usually those handles push directly up to come off the pegs. You really have to "lean in" to push the handle against the door and then try to slide it up. Once you get it off, you can tighten the studs (or whatever hook/clip thingy they came up with) and slide it back on.
