SOURCE: How do I tighten the

hi,

Remove the door from the oven, most doors you just open to the first stop point and lift up on the door, if yours doesn't let me know. Then, most doors have screws on the top and bottom, some also have them on the side, remove those screws and the front and back of the door will separate, the screws that hold the handle are in there. Remember to use caution with the glass when separating the door panels.

SOURCE: oven door handle (right side)came loose

If you put the door at a 45 degree angle on the hinges, it will lift right off. Then once on the ground, it should be easy to remove the screws of the inner panel and expose the screws that the door handle attaches to.

SOURCE: 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.

Regards

Michael

I have a loose door handle, how do i fix it? Do i have to take the door off?


Hi You will have to open the oven door and take the screws out of the side that faces inwards to the oven. Once the screws are removed the door will come apart. And then you can tighten the screws to secure the handle better. Also before you do that look under the handle and make sure there are not any set screws in it that tightens down to an anchor. They usually will be hex or allen screws .

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 handles.


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.

If a tight place is worn out, then try warmer temperature and go to the tools store to place the door with your new tools.

Loose Oven door handle


Hi,
You may have to get some loctite brand paste in a tube for applying to the threads of the bolts that hold it on.
This will prevent the screws from loosening.
Another way would be to get some spring washers or star washers at your local hardware store such as menards.
