Loose door handles.

I have an admiral side-by-side refrigerator and I cannot figure out how to tighten the loose door handles. Not knowing how to accomplish this normally simple task is driving me crazy.

There was a plastic card the size of a credit card that came with the refigerator that helps release the handles. If you don have this you can use any stiff plastic card ie: blockbuster card, store card etc...

Pull the handle away from you while inserting the card in the top or bottom of the handle based on your model. I believe the Admiral model LSD2615HEB required the card be inserted 11/16 of an inch. This should release the handle. Once released there are 4 hex screws located on the handle that may require tightening.

To reinstall: Match the hardware up just above the final location and then slide down, this should lock the handle back into place.

I have a side by side refrigerator. The handle on the refrigirator door is somewhat loose. How can I tighten it? Thanks


You have to remove the inside panel of the door. It is not a big job, just locate the screws and remove them, and remove the inside panel. Replacing them is a bit more tricky but not impossible to do,

The handle on my refrigerator door (Admiral side by side model LSD2615HEZ) is loose. How do you tighten the handle?


There is a plastic card that came with the refrigerator. Pull the handle towards you and slide the card between the door and handle on the top side of the lower handle. Slide the card until it stops, I believe its 11/16". Next slide the handle upward to release it. It may take some force to release the handle. Once its removed, you will see a bracket on the handle. In my case, the screws were loose. Tighten the screws and replace the handle and its fixed. To reinstall the handle, line up the handle with the brackets on the door. Slide down until you here a click that indicates that the handle is installed properly.

Loose handle on door


The door handles mount on hex bolts sticking out of the door, the door handles have key hole inserts that match with the bolts. The door handles are then slid in one direction to lock the handles in place. Removal is the reverse. To tighten the door handle screw the bolt out enough that you can still put the handle over the bolt heads and slide the handle to lock the handle in place.

Loose door handle


I just FINALLY fixed mine...  Popped little cover pieces off top and bottom of handle with a plastic bread bag tag slid along space created by loose handle (did not scratch finish on door).  That exposed the screws which could be tightened with a phillips screw driver; the cover pieces then snap back on the ends of the handle.

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.
