Remove the door from the oven, most doors you just open to the first stop point and lift up on the door, if yours doesn't let me know. Then, most doors have screws on the top and bottom, some also have them on the side, remove those screws and the front and back of the door will separate, the screws that hold the handle are in there. Remember to use caution with the glass when separating the door panels.

How do I remove the oven door handle to tighten it up as it is loose and the glass front is falling off.

I just actually had to do this. You'll find on the back side of the door, phillips/red robertson screws that need removed. Some are made on the top perimeter and some doors are made with them on the back.You have to take the back panel off to access the back of the handle to tighten the screws. When in doubt when removing more parts than can be remembered, take pictures along the way with your phone or camera and place the parts in baggies, naming them, their location and order in which they came off. 1,2,3, etc.

I have a loose door handle, how do i fix it? Do i have to take the door off?

Hi You will have to open the oven door and take the screws out of the side that faces inwards to the oven. Once the screws are removed the door will come apart. And then you can tighten the screws to secure the handle better. Also before you do that look under the handle and make sure there are not any set screws in it that tightens down to an anchor. They usually will be hex or allen screws .

The screws holding the handle on the oven door have come loose. How do you get at the screws to tighten them? It is a Whirlpool range designer model.

Without a model #, I would say you need to take the oven door off and disassemble it to get at the screws holding the door handle. Some models have screws going right through the door to hold the handle on. Best of to call a certified repair company such as Sears.

I have a kitchenaid electric range and the oven door handle is loose. Can I remove the door and open it and tighten the handle?

My son came and pulled the door straight out not up and we were able to take it off and take it apart and tighten the handle and clean the inner glass. It now looks and works like new.
Thank you

Oven door handle (right side)came loose

If you put the door at a 45 degree angle on the hinges, it will lift right off. Then once on the ground, it should be easy to remove the screws of the inner panel and expose the screws that the door handle attaches to.

Handle on oven door falling

Murray...after a DJ here in NY from the '60's!

First, why is the handle falling off? Is it loose or damaged? Most of these handles are only plastic with holes tapped in. If the holes are damaged and you can't fix them, you will have to replace. Most handles are through bolted in the door. You should be able to access those screws from the inside of the door. If not....

How do take a door apart: First locate any screws in the bottom of the door. Remove them. Open the door and remove screws from the sides and inside of door. Get help supporting the outside of the door and note that it will snap shut when you remove any weight from the door. Caution, most door glass is not well clipped may come loose!!!! You may want to take pictures of the inside of the door once you open it. Once the door is apart, locate any fasteners holding the handle and attempt to tighten them. If not successful, you'll need that new handle. Get an extra set of hands to help with removal and reinstallation of that door skin. You'll need 'em!
