Question about GE GSS25JEMWW Side by Side

Door handle coming off

My sidebyside is barely a year old and is only being used by one person. The door handle on the refigerator side is coming off at the top. I can see the two screws but have no idea what to do to re-tighten them. Someone said to remove the inside of the door, but I don't know how to do that either. The bottom of the handle is now beginning to loosen, too. I'm opening it by using the top of the door, but I'm afraid one of my grandchildren may visit and use the handle, pulling it the rest of the way off. I don't think this is covered by the warranty because the refrigerator was delivered (but not used) a year ago last month. What do I do?

Re: door handle coming off

First check with dealer about your warranty if not there are screws under the gasket to remove inside liner.

The water line could be frozen. Remove the water filter and see if it frozen. Also, see if the water dispenser works with the filter removed.

Refrigerator or freezer is not cold enough check this part:

* Check the temperature setting
* Assure that there is enough room for air flow in the refrigerator or freezer
* Check for air flow restrictions in vents

Hotpoint side by side no dispensor door handle loose

Removing the door gasket would probably reveal screws to separate both shells of the door - warning: door gaskets are expensive and may be hard to find on a fridge that old, so be gentle with it.

Loose door handles.

There was a plastic card the size of a credit card that came with the refigerator that helps release the handles. If you don have this you can use any stiff plastic card ie: blockbuster card, store card etc...

Pull the handle away from you while inserting the card in the top or bottom of the handle based on your model. I believe the Admiral model LSD2615HEB required the card be inserted 11/16 of an inch. This should release the handle. Once released there are 4 hex screws located on the handle that may require tightening.

To reinstall: Match the hardware up just above the final location and then slide down, this should lock the handle back into place.
