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

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.

Normally on the handle is a cosmetic cover. Use a small flat screwdriver and pry it loose. underneath are the 2 screws you are looking for.
