SOURCE: Door Handle Issue

You need to get a small allen wrench and put it in the side of the handle and twist it. It should take about 30 sec to fix your problem. Maybe a little more depending on how long it takes you to find the right sized one. Depends on your model but that is how mine worked.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: the door handles are loose. I can't tell how to

I believe the fixings for the handles are under the door seals. If you just peel back the seal you should find the fixings.

I have whirlpool A CLASS fridge how do i reverse the door


  • I cannot confirm weather your fridge had reversible doors as you listed no model but the standard for fridges that can reverse the door swing are changed by doing this -
  1. You will see little plastic covers on the opposite side where the hinges and handles are currently located now.
  2. There are some little clips that hinge the screws on the top and bottom of each handle.
  3. Remove these little covers with a small flathead screwdriver.
  4. Now remove the screws holding the freezer and refrigerator handles on.
  5. Now pop the screw hole covers on the side of the frig/freezer you will using.
  6. Now place and fasten with screws the handles on the other side of the frig/freezer door.
  7. Now remove the top freezer hinge first by removing the 3 screws on top.
  8. Now pull up on the hinge (save the spacer).
  9. Now pull up on the freezer door.
  10. Now remove the screws on the middle hinge.
  11. Now pull up and remove the middle hinge while holding the frig door steady (save the spacer).
  12. Now pull up on the frig door and set to the side.
  13. Now remove the screws on the bottom hinge (save the spacer).
  14. Now put the screw hole covers you removed from the other side in the screw hole exposed from the screws you just removed.
  • The switch
  1. Start with the bottom hinge and place it on the opposite side (don't forget the spacer).
  2. Place the frig door on the bottom hinge and the place the middle hinge in the hole at the top of the frig door.
  3. Fasten the middle hinge.
  4. Place freezer door on the middle hinge.
  5. Put the freezer door in it's natural position to make putting the top hinge on possible.
  6. Screw the top hinge in.
  7. Job complete.
Regards, Tony

How do I remove the door panel on my 1996 Olds. Cutlass Suprene 2-door sedan??


If you have power windows and door locks, take a small flat-tip screw driver, and gently pry up the switches. Unplug them. If not power, The auto parts store have a window handle removal tool. Remove the handle. Then unscrew the door lock at the top right corner of the door. Unscrew the door handle. Screws are located under the handle. If you have the pull strap, remove the covers with a screw driver. covers are at both ends of the strap. The auto parts store also sells a door panel removal tool. put that between metal and plastic cover a gently pry. it will pop the clips loose. Take your time and be gentle. after popped loose. gently tap up from the bottom. this will get it to release the clip from the frame by the window. Hope this helps.

Exterior, rear, passenger door handle will not open door. Handle feels loose, as though it is detached from any linkage?


you will need to remove the panel, usually for screws located on arm rest,door handle and sometimes around the middle of the panel behind a round plastic cover. Once all the screws are out the panel pops off, you will need to disconnect the power switches from the inside. Then look at the inside of the door, there is a retaining clip that holds the lever inside the door handle it may have fallen off or the handle cracked. Hope this helped tim

GE Spacemaker microwave model JVM130J - handle loose


Yes, you're right about the screws. The inner door is held by clips. Just pop it out using a butter knife or something similar. You might need to remove the door from hinges first (It's been too long after I repaired one of these, so I don't remember exactly).

I need to remove and change to the other side the GE GDL20KCSABS refrigerator door handle. The manual is unclear and there is no screw visible at all and trying to slide the handle up off the mounting is...


The handle does slide up off of the handle bracket where a screw will be visible . Remove the screws and on the other side of the door , remove the faceplate for the top screw and the plug for the bottom screw . These should pop back in the screw holes from where the handle was . If you do not see a small hex screw close to the top of the handle and bottom , then yes , the handle will pop upwards to remove . Dont try by just lifting , pop upwards with your hand or rubber mallet . Remember , these handles were made to be tight on the doors to last a long time without comeing loose .

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.

Changing inside door handle on 1998 chevy tahoe


They break all the time. Pop the trim peice off around the handle. There are 3 tabs between the trim peice and the handle. Remove 2 screws in the arm rest of door where you grab it to close the door. Now it's best t o use a trim panel tool to pop the door panel off but a long screw driver will do in a pinch. Pop off triangle shaped peice by outside mirror first as it sits on top of door panel then the door panel. Once it's popped loose around sides and bottom it lifts off. Let it hang or unplug the wiring to completely remove. Should leave the broken handle. If it has not been replaced before it should have a silver rivet on the bottom side. Drill it out or cut the head off. Then push the handle assembly forward 1/2 inch and it should pull out.There will be 2 rods connected on the backside that should pull out. Re-install in reverse order. Some handles will have a screw to replace the rivet some won't, either way works.

Ge profile refrigerator door handle is loose


I had this problem on this model and just repaired it.... and I am no mechanic. The bottom of the handle was loose. You'll see there is a cap on the top and bottom of the handle. You need to pop the cover off of the end that is loose. For the bottom part of the handle, I used a flat head screwdriver under the most southern portion of the handle, lifted the handle of the screwdriver towards me. The cover popped with minimal effort. Tighten the screw and replace cover. Pretty, pretty, pretty easy!
