Look for small hole at each end of handle if it as them use a small Allen wrench to tighten. If no holes. Some have prices of trim that hide screws others just pull off The handle has to be grasped firmly push in towards frog and pull up to remove than you can tighten studs

The handle on the front of frig is loose....how do I tigthen.


Hi.

The handles are retained by tiny screws. You will need an allen key to tighten the screws. If the handle is damaged you will need to replace the part. If you need to replace the handle buy the single handle rather than the kit. The kit will be more expensive.

Please refer to video and diagram below. Click on the diagram to enlarge the picture:

Bottom door handle loose


There is a 3/32" allen set screw on the under side of the handle. Just tighten the set screw and your problem should be resolved.

I have a kitchenaid KBLS19KTSS 01 bottom freezer, and the freezer handle has come off on one side. do I need to disassemble the door to reattach it? Or, do the small screws on the bottom of the handle...


It looks like your handle is the style that slips over a screw that is threaded into the face of the door...
According to your owner's manual you most likely just tighten the small allen head screws to secure it. It lists the screw size as 3/32. You should have been left the allen head with your paperwork when you bought it.

Handle of refrigerator is loose. How can you tighten it?


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 ksbp25fkss side by side fridge and the door handle on the freezer is loose, but the handle is not the one depicted in the manuel. the handle must be tightened from the back or inside of the door....


you should have trim below and above the handle if not then and its a stainless steel door then there is small round opening on the side of the handle you'll need allen wrenches once you loosen the allen the handle slides up or down then you will be able to tighten the stud post screw then reverse the mounting -----------------be cautious of scratching the stainless steel door when removing the handles

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.

Door Handle Loose and tightening with allen wrench does NOT work ...


Just did this on mine today. 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.
