SOURCE: Loose refrigerator door handle
weavie, this is one of those ugly little problems. Get hold of a small screwdriver, a pointy knife blade or similar and stick it into the gap, however small, between the cap and the handle. You may be able to find a small indent or similar near the bottom side of the cap. Gently pry up. It will yield. Be patient.

On the GE Profile, the handle is mounted to two small screws. To detach the plastic housing, you must press on the two connection points (the base and top of the handles) and slide the handle up or down (takes some effort). The handle will come off and you will have very easy access to these 10mm screws.

SOURCE: Loose door handles.
There was a plastic card the size of a credit card that came with the refigerator that helps release the handles. If you don have this you can use any stiff plastic card ie: blockbuster card, store card etc...
Pull the handle away from you while inserting the card in the top or bottom of the handle based on your model. I believe the Admiral model LSD2615HEB required the card be inserted 11/16 of an inch. This should release the handle. Once released there are 4 hex screws located on the handle that may require tightening.
To reinstall: Match the hardware up just above the final location and then slide down, this should lock the handle back into place.

There is a plastic card that came with the refrigerator. Pull the handle towards you and slide the card between the door and handle on the top side of the lower handle. Slide the card until it stops, I believe its 11/16". Next slide the handle upward to release it. It may take some force to release the handle. Once its removed, you will see a bracket on the handle. In my case, the screws were loose. Tighten the screws and replace the handle and its fixed. To reinstall the handle, line up the handle with the brackets on the door. Slide down until you here a click that indicates that the handle is installed properly.

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.

Good Morning Chris, thank you for your inquiry!
From my understanding you need to tighten the door handles on your Frigidaire refrigerator. I was unable to locate any information on your model JSI-26. Without the model number I would be unable to provide you with proper instructions on how to tighten your door handle. Could you please provide me with your model number? You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the right hand wall of your refrigerator. With that information I would be able to assist you further. -Matt
