To fix this you will need an Allen wrench small one there are 2 set screws on the inside part of the handle (on side toward the center) you wil need to tighten these to fix your problem

Use an allen wrench to back off both the upper and lower set screws (Note: you do not need to back them all the way out). The handle will then easily pull away from the door. With a 1/4" socket, tighten the screws holding the upper and lower lugs on the door. Place the handle back on and tighten the upper and lower set screws.

I have a 2 door fridge, with the freezer at the bottom. My KIC fridge is 4 years old. My problem is that the freezer is cold, but the fridge is warm. I desperately need help, what cold this be ?


Pull it from against the wall, to let it breath. The condenser is usually in the back of the frige...It can also be a problem with the compressor or it's simply loosing freon. Make sure doors shut with a seal too. Try adjusting both thermostats too.

Change doors of fridge freezer from right opening to left opening needless to say cannot find instructions after 10 years


tilt unit backwards,and under hinge side you will see a bracket,undo bolts and transfer to opposite side leaving loose,slide door down ,then on top of door transfer plug to opposite side(if needed)slide door back up and refit bottom hinges/tighten bolts.
handle is just a matter of prising plastic cover of and unscrewing,then refitting to other side.
once you tip it backward its pretty obvious really.

My door handle is loose side by side 2 years old


It is possible to tighten any fridge door handle but sometimes getting to the screws can be difficult. Begin by looking nder the door gasket right behind the handle and be prepared with a phillips head screw driver, the common size which is number two.

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 have a 2 year old SMEG FAB 32 Fridge/Freezer and the freezer section has suddenly lost temperature. Upper fridge section is fine but freezer not. I have emptied, kept door shut, turned dial up but no success.

Any suggestions on what the problem might be?

Wouldn't expect problems on a SMEG just 2 years old.


You could have a bad thermostat or the refrigerator could be low on Freon, make sure you clean off the exposed coils on the back of the fridge and underneath to free it from dust and dirt – use some type of a blower for underneath and the coils you can vacuum off or wipe off the coils, if not call a service tech to have a look @ the refrigerator – it might have a bad compressor
