GE Monogram ZBD0710 Dishwasher

The handle has become loose but I don't see any allen screws to tighten. The owners manual and installation guide don't offer any help.

    The post holding the handle to the door is tight. The handle is loose from the posts. How do you get the end caps off to access what I suspect are set screws?

    same problem. can't figure out how to tighten the handle to the post. 

  • mitchcbs Feb 26, 2009

    My problem is that while the handle is properly tightened to the short posts (called standoffs?), the posts themselves are coming loose from the dishwasher door. Do I need to remove the entire inside panel of the door to get at these screws, or do I just remove or loosen the two large phillips-screws nearest the latch?

    Thanks!

    There is no way to remove the inside panel by just removing two phillips head screws. I actually had to remove all and the entire guts were falling out all over. I had to put inside panel back on and am still without handle or any way to put handle back on. I hate G.E. what a mess! Oh Yeah, I have the ZBD6880 Model.

THIS IS THE SOLUTION!
I was having the same problem with my Monogram dishwasher and oven.  Here's what to do.  You must fully remove the handle from the appliance.  Down the barrel of the standoff is a hex screw that, when tightened with an allen wrench, will draw the standoff tight to the handle again.  There is no need to remove the end caps.

The solution from davidburroug is the one. The local appliance repair store told me I would have to buy a new handle! Thank goodness this solution appeared before I went to the expense.

Agree, this procedure works to tighten the main post to the door. What about the handle to the post? Again no allen screws present, but it apprears each end of the handle has a cap on it. How do you remove those caps to [hopefully] gain access to the bolt to tighten.

Im am going to try Solution 4, I was wondering about the two screws near the door latch. You neeed to get inside the front cover to tighten the standoffs down. What a crapy design..... it sounds like everyone has the same issue I do. GE sould change this design, and have a recall. Pisses me off............

You need to remove the front panel to tighten the handle mounting bolts from the inside. Open the dishwasher door and remove the phillips head screws from the inside of the front panel. The two phillips nearest the door latch only need to be loosened, not completely removed.

How do I tighten door handle on whirlpool fridge how do I get to the screws model gb2fhdwq02


Hello Tim;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have one of two door attachments:

1.) There are two 3/32" K set screws (Allen Head) at the top and bottom of each handle. Back off these screws until the handle comes off. The is a stud with a screw - tighten and reattach the handle.

2.) There are two brackets mounted to each refrigerator door. One at the top and one at the bottom. At the top of each bracket is a oversize hole. On the back of the handle there are two screws. These screws fit into the oversize hole. Then you push down into a slot to secure the handle. To remove the handle you push up on the handle until the door handle screws are into the oversize holes.
The screws on the door bracket often become loose. Tighten these screws. Sometimes the mounting screws on the door handle become loose as well.
Be careful, if you tighten everything up too much you will not be able to remount the door handle. Adjust the screws for a tight fix

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 is loose


If my memory serves me correctly, you should see two posts attached to the refrigerator door right now. The handle slips over these posts and if you look closely there is a little hole in the handle where you would insert a allen key wrench to tighten the little screw against the post protruding from the door itself. With the door handle in your hand, properly match up the correct allen wrench to fit the allen screw very snug. Realign the door handle on the protrucing posts and tighten. Once finished, you should have a tight fitting door handle again. Let us know if we can help further.....Eric

Loose door handle on ge profile dishwasher


Take the inside panel off.  The 2 screws near the latch only need to be loosened.  Once the handle is off, you will find an allen bolt inside the shaft of the handle support.  Tighten and you are done.
