My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
You did not provide a model number which is located on the upper inside wall of your fresh food section. So, I can not be accurate in regards to your unit.
1.) Inspect your handles. Are there 3/32" allen wrench screws at the top and bottom? If so back off the screws until the handle comes off. Then tighten the screw on the refrigerator door. Put handle back on the and tighten the 3/32" screws.
2.) No external screws - Then the handles are held on in a slip in slot fashion. Pull up on the door handle. This is going to take a little mussel. Remove the door handle. Tighten the screws on the door and the back of the handle. Slide handle back into place.
In any of my knowledge, I would check the inside door handle for any screws, some pieces of the panel can cover up any hidden screws that keep the door panel held in place. once u get the coor panel loose, you have to most likely unhook the door handle from the panel, then go around the outside edges of the door panel with either a putty knife or a panel remover tool and pop the panel out at each held in spot. Once u get the panel off the frame, unclip the power windows connector. That should be everything.
These door panels are held in place to the interior door frame with push-in fasteners which are located around the side and bottom perimeter of the panel. These fasteners are popped out by placing a screw driver or other flat tool between the panel and the door frame. Usually there are screws and/or small bolts which hold the arm rest and door handle portion of the door panel. You need to locate any of these first and remove them. some screws/bolt heads may be hidden by small plastic caps which cover the heads. In some models, there is a piece of molding which is snapped in around the handle or on top of the arm rest. Once the perimeter fasteners are loose and all screws are removed, the panel is lifted up to disengage it from the bottom window frame. Be careful not to move the panel too far away from the door frame until you disconnect all wiring connections on the back side. Those nylon buttons that hold the panel in place sometimes break off when you remove them. They are replaceable(auto parts store).
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.
If you only remove the 4(T20 torx) along the flat edge this will only remove the outer door panel. Start from the top and work down. Also if yours has 2 blocks that fall out, they go on the hinge only 1 way.
