Question about Refrigerators

It would help to know the make and model of your fridge so we can give you a better answer.
Examine how it is attached.. It's possible that a screw has worked itself loose or the threads have been stripped with constant tugging at the handle.
You can try to screw it back into the handle again but if this is not possible, you need to consider using a strong glue like an epoxy resin - Araldite is a good example.
Mix the epoxy, you only need a little. Use a toothpick to apply the mix to the screw threads and the back of the handle where it contacts the door.
The combination of the threads and the handle should provide a strong bond.
Press and hold the handle to the door. Some epoxy adhesives work in 5 minutes or less but some can take up to 24 to fully cure. Use masking tape or sellotape to hold the handle until it is fully cured.
DO NOT use superglue.

Most of time just a stripped screw or fitting on door handle so you have to replace whatever part is missing or broken. Rich

I may need to know your model # from the sticker inside the fridge to view a diagram but usually there is are small set screws (usually 2) on the handle which are allen head that can be tightened. Look for this first and let me know if there are no set screws. If this is your setup then I would appreciate a solved rating.

Yes hello, I had the same problem - similar fridge model. Mine was the fridge (not freezer) door handle ie. the upper door. There are no small holes on the bottom of my fridge handle. Working from the outer door edge, I gently prized loose the plastic trim located under the door. I didn't take it completely off, just loosened about one quarter of the length, enough to flex the trim downward so that I could then access the phillips head screw that secures the fridge handle from the inside of the door. The trim will prevent you from using a conventional screw driver to tighten the screw. I used a screw driver bit which is only 25mm long. It has an hexagonal end to which I applied a small spanner and voila - the handle is once more secure. Good luck.
