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?

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

Loose handle

yes , on most freezers the door inner panel liner needs to be removed , that will sometimes require the removal of the door gasket that may be old to the point where it to needs replacing. then finally you can get to the back side of the door and snug up the screws that hold the handle from the back. usually fine thread screws. be sure to apply loc tite and snug up good , we don't want to do this again any time soon. you can take a chance and try pulling out the handle and cutting the screws and then drill the hole in the handle out to where you see a hole in the side of the handle from the front, then counter sink the hole and use a drill screw or a small toggle bolt to resecure the handle . no real wires or refigeration tubes in the door, so its an option. good luck

Door handle coming off

now you just need to buy another handle because the first one is not fixed well, it doen't cost a lot, but when you buy the handle you get free maintenance.
