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: 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.

Check to see if your freezer handle has an inlay in the handle or trim that pops off to get at a screw that holds the handle onto the door. If you don't have this then you may have a handle that literally slides up and off. You then tighten the mounting screws or replace the handle if that is what is making it loose. We no longer can tear apart the doors on refrigerators to get at components inside, because the factory puts these together and shoots liquid insulation into the cavity, and this insulation expands and hardens making it impossible to tear doors apart anymore. This is why most handles now are front repairable. Good Luck. Appliance Specialists
