Loose handles - GE monogram model # ZFSB25DMD SS

My handles on both the fridge and freezer doors are loose. It is set up as follows... here is the door, a connector piece and then the handle. The connector piece to the handle is secure (that is the one that can be tightened under the piece by an allen wrench).... the loose connecton comes between the connector piece and the handle.

I do not see a way to get to the screws to tighten them.. they appear to be behind the paneling. Is there a way to tighten these??

Try removing the handle, that will expose the mounts for the handle. You should be able to tighten them after removing the handle.

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.

GE Monogram refrigerator feeezing even when thermostat is set at 45

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

The door handle on the freezer of my GE Profile Bottom Freezer Refrigerator came off.

Hi, Please get me the model # from the label inside the refrigerator and I will look this up for you. Most handles have a set screw that tightens down.

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.

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.
