If you have not figured out how to get the handles off, I am going to try and walk you thru it. First look at this diagram to get an idea of what you are doing. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=GSH25JFRGWW&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=0432&brandDescription=GE&modelName=REFRIGERATOR-R-SERIES&diagramPageId=00002&componentDescription=FRESH%20FOOD%20DOOR&documentId=G0503243&blt=06
Part location #6 and #121 slide off. Use your palm and press it flat against #6 part of handle top like you are gonna push it thru the door. While pushing in push up and it will hopefully slide up and off revealing the screws that secure the handle. If need be use a butter knife to help you pry it off. Find the gaps in the handle for the top sleeve(#6) and bottom sleeve (#121) and lay the knife horizontaly in the gap cutting side in the groove. Pry up or down on the handle and it should push the sleeve up. Same rules apply to both sleeves one is just longer than the other. If you find one of the mounting screws cannot be simply tightened and is stripped, pick up some thread lock from an auto parts or home improvement store to help secure it better. Hope this helps.

Bosch refrigerator door handle is loose


there is only one screw on the handles from what i found out from fixing my loose handle. the bottom of the door handle has one screw. once you loosen that one up then you lift it and it comes out at the top enough to slide the handle out and tighten it.

Loose handle on door


The door handles mount on hex bolts sticking out of the door, the door handles have key hole inserts that match with the bolts. The door handles are then slid in one direction to lock the handles in place. Removal is the reverse. To tighten the door handle screw the bolt out enough that you can still put the handle over the bolt heads and slide the handle to lock the handle in place.

Door handle is loose on model#gsh22jftacc. how do you tighten?


If it's the same as the one we have (which is similar to the pic posted on yours) there's a plastic piece on the top and bottom of the handle that you have to pry up (gently) to get to them.
It looks like a line that runs horizontal across the handle, but it should come up with a little force (meaning it shouldn't require tools). You have to pry it from the side, not the top or bottom.

Bottom freezer door handle loose


There is a plastic card that you are supposed to slide under the right side of the handle. Once you have done this correctly the whole handle should slide off to the left.
