    There is no trim piece at the bottom of the handle. The handle appears to curve in to the door. There are two small holes on inside of each handle. The holes are located at the top and at the bottom of each handle. I can add a pciture if you like.

    Holes are really small, about the size of a 9/64ths drill bit and come in at a 90 deg angle thur the side of the handle to the #6 part you see above. I will check it tomorrow. Didn't think of a release clip. Thanks.

    Turns out that there is a star set screw inside the 9/64ths hole in the handle. Just turn to tighten. Sears repairman charged $118 and took all of 10 sec to fix. Amazing.

    Mine is a top mount fridge GE PROFILE with bottom slide out freezer. I don't see any holes in the handle. The handle looks like illustration posted except that plug(thimble looking?) at corner of the door in the picture seems to be molded into the door trim (ie. all one piece) that runs along the entire bottom/top of door. Does not pop out as shown in picture. Any suggestions. Actual model is pds22sbrbrss. Thanks

I had the same problem with a loose handle. The set screws are so small that I needed to get use a precision screwdriver (which I picked up for a couple of bucks) and was able to easily tighten the two set screws. Can't believe how easy it was when you know how.

    You're right. I wasn't able to look up the exact model you posted but found it using a different one. This pic shows what's under the handle,

    See if there's a release clip inside those holes you mentioned

Our GE GSS25WSTSS is 5 years old. For the past 3 years it has been making a fairly loud pulsating deep whirring noise whenever the fridge motor is on. Applying pressure to the right side door gets rid of...

This might more simple than it seems, or maybe not. Try pulling both handles downward to lock them in. The handles are removedjust as easy by pulling them up. My first guess is either it never was fully seated or second the handle has slop between the locking area "manufacture defect". Let me know please.

GE Energy Star French Door Bottom Freezer handle popped off

You cant find a hole to insert screw from outside. It is true, and you can't fix it yourself to what it looked like earlier. The company first screws in through the handle and then covers the hole made by it with the material of the handle. If you have to fix it yourself, you can only pierce those screws through the handle leaving the mark behind. If you don't want that, contact your company or dealer.

GE French Door handle loose

To tighten the screw the first step is to remove the handle. With this model just pull straight up on the handle. It can take a little force but after it finally unclips it moves up an inch or two then pulls straight out. Good luck!

Ge profile refrigerator door handle is loose

I had this problem on this model and just repaired it.... and I am no mechanic. The bottom of the handle was loose. You'll see there is a cap on the top and bottom of the handle. You need to pop the cover off of the end that is loose. For the bottom part of the handle, I used a flat head screwdriver under the most southern portion of the handle, lifted the handle of the screwdriver towards me. The cover popped with minimal effort. Tighten the screw and replace cover. Pretty, pretty, pretty easy!
