I assume it is a factory stainless steel handle. There are set screws on the floor side of the standoffs. If you look at the bottom of the stand of you will see a small whole about 3/16 in diameter, inside this is a set screw. I cannot remember the exact size but it is pretty small allen wrench. Be careful when you are tightening not to scratch the stainless finish.

How to tighten loose door handle as there are NO screws on outside of door handle. Please help! Thanks


You will often find the screws hidden under plastic covers on the handle itself. Just gently lever them out.

If not, then it means getting to them from the back removing the gasket and door liner, and then the insulation..

How to tighten loose set screws on freezer door handle on ken more fridge with bottom mount freezer, model no. 269-76353019


I think that the handle is attached either to the door edge or the face. In either case the screws are usually hidden behind a small trim panel. This needs to be removed to expose the screws. I don't know what type of screws have been used. They're usually cross heads but occasionally they require an allen key to remove them.

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.

Handle on bottom freezer door is loose. Screw on bottom of handle appears to be neither a philips or flathead screw. just seems like a teeny tiny rivet.. Inside the handle is a floating "ball"...


Hello, You need to look at the screw at the bottom of the handle. I know this is difficult to do; however, you have to establish what type of inset screw you have to faster. Most probably, it is a four or five star screw. You have to have a certain head screwdriver in order to turn the screw in order to secure the handle. When you identify the head of the screw -- as in four or five head screw -- place the screw driver into the screw and turn until it is firm.
If this does not work, refer to the manufacturer's manual to find a solution.
Hope this works for you. Dana

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!!!

I have a kitchenaid KBLS19KTSS 01 bottom freezer, and the freezer handle has come off on one side. do I need to disassemble the door to reattach it? Or, do the small screws on the bottom of the handle...


It looks like your handle is the style that slips over a screw that is threaded into the face of the door...
According to your owner's manual you most likely just tighten the small allen head screws to secure it. It lists the screw size as 3/32. You should have been left the allen head with your paperwork when you bought it.

The door handle on my sub zero 650 has come off.


Hi,

On Few Models, To remove the existing handle have a look for clipped on covers hiding the screws.On others, With a small flat blade screw driver stick between the handle and the door trim on top and push it up and on the bottom push it down and you can access the screws in the handles and tighten.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Fisher Paykel fridge door handle loose


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.

Refridgerator door handle


The entire handle slides upward and out to detach from the door. There are two screws attached to the handle which can be tightened once the handle is off. Those screw heads are what reattach the handle to the door by sliding them through the door bracket opening, where they follow a short channel down leaving the handle secured again.
