Weavie, this is one of those ugly little problems. Get hold of a small screwdriver, a pointy knife blade or similar and stick it into the gap, however small, between the cap and the handle. You may be able to find a small indent or similar near the bottom side of the cap. Gently pry up. It will yield. Be patient.

Handles loose on Frigidaire fridge doors

Jeff, If you can not see any visible screws, look for molded removable trim caps on the handle, remove and tighten screws. If no trim caps then your handle is probably mounted to fridge with screws in slotted slide, which get slid off by pulling straight up on handle, normally takes a lot of force to slide up and out. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My GE counter top microwave will only count down. The light, fan, and turntable will not work. Lifting the door solution did not work. It's only 2 yrs. old.

I would suspect a door switch is defective or its mount is loose, misaligned, or broken.

See my he;p file on door switches here.

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.

Door handle is loose on model#gsh22jftacc. how do you tighten?

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.

GE French Door handle loose

To tighten the screw the first step is to remove the handle. With this model just pull straight up on the handle. It can take a little force but after it finally unclips it moves up an inch or two then pulls straight out. Good luck!
