SOURCE: Refrigerator getting hot!
There is a part of the condenser called the mullion loop that adds heat to keep moisture from building up and causing the door gaskets to stick. If it's too hot to the touch, first check your frige and freezer temps. You'll obviously know if the frige is too cold, but you may not know if the freezer is too cold. The freezer should be between 5-10 deg ABOVE zero. Any colder and the frige will have to work harder and would create more heat. Also check the condenser coils. If they are dirty it will prevent the frige from removing the heat properly. The condenser should be cleaned at least annually. Most friges have a condenser fan motor. Make sure the motor is running and the fan blades are clean. Most friges also have a cardboard type panel on the back at the bottom. That panel directs the air flow across the condenser and must be in place. If it's missing or damaged it will need replaced.

You might try checking to see if the screw head is actually on the handle, but hidden by the handles cover. Look at the side and see if you notice a seam. This can be pried open and the screw head will be seen.

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.

Yep, if the engineer had worked for me, I would have fired him/her. I have gone through 3 of them of the past 3-1/2 years until I got tired of it.
That said, it likely brakes at the same corner/corner. You will likely find a cavity inside each broken half. Using superglue and a small flat piece of metal (cut from a metal washer) sized/formed to fit inside cavities when the broken half are pieced together. Trial piecing the pieces together first before glueing them together.
If there are no cavities (solid), try creating one (you may be able to drill/carve out) in each broken half then follow the steps above.
Guaranty better than new and last a whale of a lot longr.

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.)
