Whirlpool gold side by side door handle is loose.I can't find the way to tighten. IT appears the screws are underneath the rubber gasket, but I am a little wary of tearing it loose without anew gasket.

Most door handles now are front repairable. I can't tell without the model number which style you have, but most units have an insert in the door handle. You have to pry this insert out, to get to the screws for the handle. Some handles actually clip on to the door by sliding the handle up or down to clip it on or off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Door handle came loose .how do i tighten it up`


hello kyler.... Empty out the contents of the door of the fridge. Then pull up the gasket and under that you will see screws. Remove those screws and the entire inside of the door is released exposing the screws to tighten the handle. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

The door handle of my oven whirlpool gold model no GGP84803 is loose I try to get it off by prying it from the top with no luck seem to be jam or locked I am not sure how to proceed.


I had same problem, fixed by removing screws under door and removing side panels . Then remove front glass ( 4 screws under glass ) and remove other screws behind glass to remove handle and then tighten 4 screws on handle. Works great.

Handle on fridge side is loose


Look at the top and bottom of the handle. There should be a plastic end cap you can gently pry off exposing the screws to remove and tighten the handle.

I have a whirlpool gold side by side with ice and water. The refrigerator handle has come loose at the top. The screws all appear to be in accessible as they are directly behind the door handle.


See if you can unscrew the handle at the bottom, and slide it off the top bracket. Then you should be able to tighten the top screws and re-install the handle.

Hotpoint side by side no dispensor door handle loose


Removing the door gasket would probably reveal screws to separate both shells of the door - warning: door gaskets are expensive and may be hard to find on a fridge that old, so be gentle with it.

My side by side refrigerator handles are loose (Whirlpool gold)


Hi, Most newer models have a screw behind the plastic cover on the handle. Take a good look at the handle and see if the cover can be removed. It should just snap on. If not, please get me you model # and I can assist you further.

Thanks

Refridgerator door handle


The entire handle slides upward and out to detach from the door. There are two screws attached to the handle which can be tightened once the handle is off. Those screw heads are what reattach the handle to the door by sliding them through the door bracket opening, where they follow a short channel down leaving the handle secured again.
