SOURCE: Freezer Door handle came off after 1 yr.

I had this problem with the bottom freezer door of my Amana.
What I did was slide off the entire door handle by applying pressure pushing toward the right to get the handle off. Once the handle was off, I slid the clip (which was still clipped on to the door) off and screwed it back on to the handle. Once the clip was tightly secured to the back side of the handle, I carefully slid the handle bar back on to the door by sliding it to the left back on to the door clips until it clicked securely back into place.

SOURCE: Fisher Paykel fridge door handle loose

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.

Yes, it will be a small allen key that needs to be loosened before you can remove the handle.

SOURCE: Loose freezer door handle

There is a "set screw" on the underside of the posts that connect the handle to the mounting posts on the face of the door of my Jenn-Air bottom freezer. Use an Allen wrench to loosen the set crew, which is very small (my Jenn-Air requires a 3/32" Allen wrench), and then tighten the bolt on the mounting post on the face of the freezer door. Position the handle over the post, then tighten the set screws with the Allen wrench. Cynthia

How to tighten loose set screws on freezer door handle on ken more fridge with bottom mount freezer, model no. 269-76353019


I think that the handle is attached either to the door edge or the face. In either case the screws are usually hidden behind a small trim panel. This needs to be removed to expose the screws. I don't know what type of screws have been used. They're usually cross heads but occasionally they require an allen key to remove them.

look real close as the screws may not be hex but tec special screws that require a tec bit set ( available from a good tool shop)
you mention metric sizes for the hex but the screws may be imperial and not metric and that may be the difference

GB2FHGXB01


Are you sure of the model number? I don't see a Whirlpool GB2FHGXB01 ; I do see a model GB2FHDXWB01.

For this model, there are several different door handles. One has a Philips head screw hidden under a trim piece. To expose the screw firmly push the trim away from the center of the handle. (This is for a standard Whirlpool fridge door handle.)

The French door style refrigerators have slightly different door handles. One uses Allen screws as set screws to secure the handle. (This screw needs a 3/32" Allen screw (hex key) and you can access it through a small hole in the underside of the handle on the loose side.) Be careful not to overtighten the screw or you may strip the threads and have to replace parts.

The other option has the handle mounted on brackets on the door. To access the bracket, grasp the freezer handle and pull it to the left. Then pull the handle away from the refrigerator.

For pictures of the handles, see pages 9 and 10 of the manual. It's available here: https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/User%20Instructions%20-%20W10366204.pdf .

I hope this helps. If you do have the GB2FHGXB01, check if any of these directions help. Most refrigerators use one of the above door handle designs.

There are Allen set screws on each end of the handles (Top/bottom for the refrigerator doors, left/right for the freezer compartment.) These screws are accessed through small holes in the side of the handle with a 2.5 mm (3/32") Allen wrench. There are on the bottom side of the freezer handle as it's installed. There are also mounting brackets under the handle that can be tightened with a 1/4" Allen wrench with the handle completely removed.

For pictures of the handle hardware, see page 9 of the manual for the LFX25975SW. This is page 10 of the pdf here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/2228/LG-Bottom-Mount-Refrigerator-L0906255 . This link should display in your browser.

I hope this helps.

(Allen wrenches (Hex keys) are L-shaped tools with a hexagonal design where it contacts the screw head. You'll need the long side to get into the holes. Do not overtighten the screws - this can strip the threads. Then you'd need to replace the entire handle unless you can work a new screw into the spot.)

Maytag Ice20 freezer door handle fell off on one side


I had the same thing happen with my freezer door on my Ice20 as well. You need to look inside the hole on the inside of the handle on the end that has come off. There will be a loose screw head sitting in there. You need to get that out and screw it back into the hole in the freezer door. Then, place the handle back on top of the screw that you just put in. Make sure the screw head is sitting properly inside the hole in the handle and the handle is flat to the door where it should be. Now, using a small set of allen keys, find the one that fits in the tiny hole on the underside of the handle. There is a little thread in the hole and you need to use the allen key to turn the thread until it puts pressure on the screw. This keeps the handle on. I was able to fix my door with a 40 cent allen key. Hope this helps!
