SOURCE: door handle is loose

If my memory serves me correctly, you should see two posts attached to the refrigerator door right now. The handle slips over these posts and if you look closely there is a little hole in the handle where you would insert a allen key wrench to tighten the little screw against the post protruding from the door itself. With the door handle in your hand, properly match up the correct allen wrench to fit the allen screw very snug. Realign the door handle on the protrucing posts and tighten. Once finished, you should have a tight fitting door handle again. Let us know if we can help further.....Eric

SOURCE: door handle loose on 10656542400 kenmore

I got it!!! Okay, the most common problem is the fridge handle at the top is coming loose from the mere fact that the fridge gets opened more than the freezer and people grasp the handle higher than lower. Okay, open the door until you can look at the handle sideways where it attaches to the door. What is happening is the screw that slides into the bracket is simply backing out. Try lifting the handle straight up, only about an inch plus. The bracket is the same on the bottom of the handle as the top. If you cannot get the handle to lift, get a very slim standard screwdriver and push the retaining clip down (away from the handle) so the screw head can get passed it. You may have to push the retaining clip pretty good to get it down. When you have it pushed away from the screw head, lift the handle and it should pop up. Take the handle away from the door and tighten the screw. The screw head takes a torques screw head (star shaped, like a philips but different) Tighten it until it stops the just realign the TWO screw heads into the upper and lower bracket and slide the handle down gently. No problem! You can do it!

SOURCE: Bottom Freezer door handle

I had the same problem. It took me an hour to figure out that the bottom freezer handles clips onto the door using butterfly clips. To tighten the clips you have to remove the handle by sliding it to the right (or left??) It snaps right out with a quick **** exposing the clips underneath. A quick tightening of the clips and the handle snaps back in.

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

How do I tighten door handle on whirlpool fridge how do I get to the screws model gb2fhdwq02


Hello Tim;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have one of two door attachments:

1.) There are two 3/32" K set screws (Allen Head) at the top and bottom of each handle. Back off these screws until the handle comes off. The is a stud with a screw - tighten and reattach the handle.

2.) There are two brackets mounted to each refrigerator door. One at the top and one at the bottom. At the top of each bracket is a oversize hole. On the back of the handle there are two screws. These screws fit into the oversize hole. Then you push down into a slot to secure the handle. To remove the handle you push up on the handle until the door handle screws are into the oversize holes.
The screws on the door bracket often become loose. Tighten these screws. Sometimes the mounting screws on the door handle become loose as well.
Be careful, if you tighten everything up too much you will not be able to remount the door handle. Adjust the screws for a tight fix

The handle on my refrigerator door (Admiral side by side model LSD2615HEZ) is loose. How do you tighten the handle?


There is a plastic card that came with the refrigerator. Pull the handle towards you and slide the card between the door and handle on the top side of the lower handle. Slide the card until it stops, I believe its 11/16". Next slide the handle upward to release it. It may take some force to release the handle. Once its removed, you will see a bracket on the handle. In my case, the screws were loose. Tighten the screws and replace the handle and its fixed. To reinstall the handle, line up the handle with the brackets on the door. Slide down until you here a click that indicates that the handle is installed properly.

The driver's side outside door handle is loose, toyota celica '95


I assume that the entire handle unit is loose in the body work of the door.
The interior door trim will need to be removed to access the inside of the door to fix the loose handle.

Do not attempt his yourself unless you have some experience in this area.
Take the vehicle to the nearest reputable auto body repair shop and they can easily fix it for you. There could be a breakage on the retaining system on the handle or the retainers may just need tightening.

Typically door handles which have not been subject to damage or abuse will not usually loosen like this. It's possible the door was damaged and the panel repaired and repainted at some stage. If so the door handle may have been removed and refitted in a sloppy manner.

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!

Door Handle Loose and tightening with allen wrench does NOT work ...


Just did this on mine today. Use an allen wrench to back off both the upper and lower set screws (Note: you do not need to back them all the way out). The handle will then easily pull away from the door. With a 1/4" socket, tighten the screws holding the upper and lower lugs on the door. Place the handle back on and tighten the upper and lower set screws.
