I have a SubZero model 642 fridge with the same problem. I just fixed it with a standard allen wrench. The set screw is quite small and is very far inside the hole. I used a 1/16" allen wrench.
The space is limited. You might want to stick a post it or other piece of paper on the door near the work area so that your allen wrench does not scratch your door as you wiggle it around.

Loose handle on a Sub Zero 611 with stainless steel front. Used various allen keys but nothing is catching.


Unfortunatly there is no easy way to do this, but your on the right track. The handles are held in place by set screws, meaning there is not nut or bolt, the screw itself just pushes against the metal causing firmness. I found it easiest to get long allen head wrenches, lay on the floor with a flashlight, look up into the shaft and try to picture the position in you head and have at it. Persistance is the only way you'll win that battle.

Sub-Zero 601R door handle is loose


My Sub is a 650S. Not sure your handle assy. is the same or not. But each of the 2 attachment points have a small 3/32" set screw on the bottom of each short piece between the vertical handle and the door. These set screws grab onto posts that are screwed into the door. There can be 3 points where the handle can work loose.
1. The set screw(s) have backed out and not holding tightly onto the door studs. 2. The studs in the door are loose and need to be tightened with a screw driver. 3. After loosening the handle via the set screws, when you look back into the cavity vacated by the studs from the door, (pivot handle clockwise past edge of door) you will see a Philips-head screw that secures the spacer to the handle. If the spacer is loose, tighten it with screw driver. Then mount back into door stud and tighten set screw. Problem Solved. Have a beer!!!

Handle of refrigerator is loose. How can you tighten it?


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.

How do you tighten a loose handle of the fridge door? Sub zero 642


I have the Sub Zero 650. I am not sure if yours iworks same but what you do is use a 3/32 Allen wrench; as you push the handle into the screw on the door so that it is flush, you insert the Allen wrench in the hole at the bottom of the short vertical connector at top and tighten; repeat for upper or lower part of handle.

I nee to tighten up the freezer door handle on a sub zero 650?


There are different handles depending on serial number. The older of the two is at the top of the door. The screws are covered with a magnetic trim piece. You can remove this by putting tape on the chrome and pull up. You can then tighten the nuber two phillips head screws. The newer model is on the door itself. These are held on with small set screws accessed from the bottom of the handle. You may get by just tightening the set screws. If not you need to remove the handle by removing the set screws. You can then tighten the standoff and reatach the handle. For the 632 same procedure except it will be on the side.

Loose door handle on 511 model


I assume it is a factory stainless steel handle. There are set screws on the floor side of the standoffs. If you look at the bottom of the stand of you will see a small whole about 3/16 in diameter, inside this is a set screw. I cannot remeber the exact size but it is pretty small. Be careful when you are tightening not to scratch the stainless finish.

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.
