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: whirlpool side by side water dispenser not working

I had the same problem and it appear the cable set between the freezer door and refrigerator body has some wires broken. The cable is in the bottom right hinge. You can try moving the cable with fingers at the same time you're pushing the water lever.

While this is not going to be a permanent fix, at least it confirm where the problem is.

SOURCE: door handle is loose on model#gsh22jftacc. how do you tighten?

If it's the same as the one we have (which is similar to the pic posted on yours) there's a plastic piece on the top and bottom of the handle that you have to pry up (gently) to get to them.
It looks like a line that runs horizontal across the handle, but it should come up with a little force (meaning it shouldn't require tools). You have to pry it from the side, not the top or bottom.

SOURCE: My side by side refrigerator handles are loose (Whirlpool gold)

Hi, Most newer models have a screw behind the plastic cover on the handle. Take a good look at the handle and see if the cover can be removed. It should just snap on. If not, please get me you model # and I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Whirlpool gold side by side door handle is loose.I can't find the way to tighten. IT appears the screws are underneath the rubber gasket, but I am a little wary of tearing it loose without anew gasket.


Most door handles now are front repairable. I can't tell without the model number which style you have, but most units have an insert in the door handle. You have to pry this insert out, to get to the screws for the handle. Some handles actually clip on to the door by sliding the handle up or down to clip it on or off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Handle on fridge side is loose


Look at the top and bottom of the handle. There should be a plastic end cap you can gently pry off exposing the screws to remove and tighten the handle.

I have a whirlpool gold side by side with ice and water. The refrigerator handle has come loose at the top. The screws all appear to be in accessible as they are directly behind the door handle.


See if you can unscrew the handle at the bottom, and slide it off the top bracket. Then you should be able to tighten the top screws and re-install the handle.

My whirlpool gold side by side serial # slo539783 model #gd


Sound like you have a refrigerant leak I suggest to take it to a pro because you need lots of tools and knowledge to properly fix it And don?t let people tell you than is just to add refrigerant because that is a common myth or miss conception, refrigerant don?t ware out or burn out if the system need refrigerant is because there is a leak some where.
