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: door handle loose on 10656542400 kenmore

I got it!!! Okay, the most common problem is the fridge handle at the top is coming loose from the mere fact that the fridge gets opened more than the freezer and people grasp the handle higher than lower. Okay, open the door until you can look at the handle sideways where it attaches to the door. What is happening is the screw that slides into the bracket is simply backing out. Try lifting the handle straight up, only about an inch plus. The bracket is the same on the bottom of the handle as the top. If you cannot get the handle to lift, get a very slim standard screwdriver and push the retaining clip down (away from the handle) so the screw head can get passed it. You may have to push the retaining clip pretty good to get it down. When you have it pushed away from the screw head, lift the handle and it should pop up. Take the handle away from the door and tighten the screw. The screw head takes a torques screw head (star shaped, like a philips but different) Tighten it until it stops the just realign the TWO screw heads into the upper and lower bracket and slide the handle down gently. No problem! You can do it!

SOURCE: On my Kenmore Elite #106.56683501 the refrigerator door is loose

Depending on the model, and the color, here's your fix.

Stainless with stainless handles- you'll need a hex key. The tiny hole is on the inside of the handle, close to the center. Turn the key until it's tightened.

Stainless with black handle/white/bisque/black- push the door handle up. Careful not to scratch the finish! once the handle pops, pull it straight off. Take a phillips head screw driver, tighten the top screw A LITTLE BIT and then attach again. Insert screws on the door into the holes on the handle, slide down. (will need to be a little tough with it.)
Good luck!

The driver's side outside door handle is loose, toyota celica '95


I assume that the entire handle unit is loose in the body work of the door.
The interior door trim will need to be removed to access the inside of the door to fix the loose handle.

Do not attempt his yourself unless you have some experience in this area.
Take the vehicle to the nearest reputable auto body repair shop and they can easily fix it for you. There could be a breakage on the retaining system on the handle or the retainers may just need tightening.

Typically door handles which have not been subject to damage or abuse will not usually loosen like this. It's possible the door was damaged and the panel repaired and repainted at some stage. If so the door handle may have been removed and refitted in a sloppy manner.

Door handle is loose


If my memory serves me correctly, you should see two posts attached to the refrigerator door right now. The handle slips over these posts and if you look closely there is a little hole in the handle where you would insert a allen key wrench to tighten the little screw against the post protruding from the door itself. With the door handle in your hand, properly match up the correct allen wrench to fit the allen screw very snug. Realign the door handle on the protrucing posts and tighten. Once finished, you should have a tight fitting door handle again. Let us know if we can help further.....Eric

Door handle loose on 10656542400 kenmore


The solution on the Kenmore 56822 turned out to be very simple:
With the door closed, pull up on the door handle (requires some force). The door handle will slide up, and once it is up, it can be removed by carefully pulling it off of the door. Then the screws holding the mounting lug can be tightened. Place the handle back on the door, and slide it down, and voila, no more loose handle. I am going to put some LockTite on the screw on mine to ensure that it stays tight.

Kenmore Electric Range - Door handle


I had the same problem with my stove. I tried to replace, glue the srews and other things, but nothing really worked well. It's a shame that Kennmore has such a design flaw in their stoves, but did nothing to help their customers.

Here is the solution that worked for me:

Fix the thread with helicoils (these are inserts that create a new threat in the handle). You can find the instructions how to use the helicoils on Youtube.
I replaced the crews with new screws that fit to the helicoil threat and now the handle is safely secured.
