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

Freezer handle falls off on one side , kenmore elite - pull drawer freezer


Mine does that too. I've simply accepted the fact the the screw holding the handle on just loosens over time. Periodically, when I feel the handle becoming loose, I tighten it with an allen wrench and go on.

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!

Sears trio elite ...french doors with bottom freezer...right side loose on freezer door handle...thanks


I have the same refrig. After taking the freezer basket hinges off, thinking I had to take the whole door a part to access the screws for the handle...my husband figured that the handle probably slides off...and yes that is just what it does!
Push the handle in a bit and then slide to the right. It takes a little bit of effort but that handle will come right off. Then you can tighten the screw that holds the clip in place. Then you line the handle back up to the clips, and slide to the left. Good Luck!

LOOSE DOOR HANDLE whirlpool frige GC5SHEXNQ00


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.

Loose Door Handle


There is no adjustment for the door handles.  The brackets are metal pressed and if they become loose, it is recommended that they be replaced.
