You don't say brand or size but normally if you remove drawer and shelf above it, unless clips are broken(you can order new) install the clips, install shelf and install drawer that no longer falls down. Joe Don
There is a plastic fitting ( a splicer) that connects a plastic tube that runs into the hinge of the door to a larger tube that goes back into the water filter (if equipped) or up into a shut off valve. It has two plastic nuts that connect to a threaded piece in the middle. It may be that this is just loose or missing. You can get them at any harware store normally. Measure the larger tube and take the smaller tube
If you don't see a tube running from a hole in the hinge of the door that has the water statioin (normally the freezer) then read on. . .
Most likely the tube has been severed. If the tube isnt visible coming from the hinge in the freezer door, then it's possible severed and retracted back inside. this is what happened to me. To replace the tube in the door with a longer piece, you must remove the faceplate of the water station. First you carefully pry off any switch plates for the cubed/crushed switch and then carefully remove the plastic faceplate around the outside edges with a plastic paint scraper or small screw driver. Normally they snap into the water station. Be careful not to damage the plastic clips that keep them. Next you will may have to remove a metal plate to expose the tube that dispenses the water. You must find the end of the water tube and remove any clip or fitting that holds it in place. Pull the tube all the way out and you may see that the end was severed. You will need to replace this piece with a longer section available at any hardware store. I would get one at least a foot longer to ensure that you can trim to fit. Begin to insert the new tube by going into the hole in the bottom of the door first (the one in the hinge) and pushing the plastic tube until it emerges at the water station. finish by replacing the clip on the end that emerges so it looks about the same as it did before. Trim the bottom so the tubes meet together before you replce the splicer.
Again, if the plastic splicer fitting on that connected the two tubes together (one tube is larger than the other) is missing, you can get this piece at the hardware store.
My dad's freezer handle is loose, model ABB2224DEW. Went to partselect.com and located drawing of freezer door parts. Found a link to a "do-it-yourselfer" that describes removal and replacement of the handle. Hopefully this helps.
Replacement of freezer door handle. 1. Removed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle removal instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. Removing the handle requires inserting a plastic card at least 1.5 inches under the left end of the right side of the handle so it releases the butterfly clip latch on the freezer door. Next I pulled the right side of the handle to lift it away from the freezer door. Then still holding the handle away from the door, at the spot that is 1.5 inches from the inside of the right side of the handle, I held the plastic card vertically and slid one corner of it between the handle and the freezer door and worked the card down until it released the butterfly clip latch. Keeping the card at the same space under the handle so the latch was released, I then turned the card to the left until it was horizontal and was lifting the left end of the right door handle away from the freezer door. I then slid the handle across the card to the left until it cleared both door butterfly clip latches and it lifted off the door. 2. Installed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle installation instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. The handle is curved on one edge and must be installed the curved side down. Correctly installed, the outside ends of the handle curve upward and the handle curve is down so it looks like a frowning mouth. Next holding the handle curved edge down, I turned it up so I could see the brackets and held it against the door. I lined up the handle brackets slightly to the left of the butterfly clips on the freezer door. Next I turned the handle with the brackets against the freezer door and slid it slightly to the right until the left side of the handle held onto the door butterfly clip by itself but was not latched. Then I lined up the right handle bracket with the right freezer door butterfly clip and carefully slid the whole handle to the right until I heard the left butterfly clip latch click. Next I slid the handle back slightly left once more and then slid it back to the right until I heard the right butterfly clip latch click.

that handle is just pressure fit on the clips securing to the door. grab hold ad PULL.and i mean PULL the the right. it will snap off just make sure you really PULL it. after that you cantighten the brackets on refig and inside the handle as well
I had this problem with the bottom freezer door of my Amana. What I did was slide off the entire door handle by applying pressure pushing toward the right to get the handle off. Once the handle was off, I slid the clip (which was still clipped on to the door) off and screwed it back on to the handle. Once the clip was tightly secured to the back side of the handle, I carefully slid the handle bar back on to the door by sliding it to the left back on to the door clips until it clicked securely back into place.
