Hello,

Place the blade of the flathead screwdriver under the ridge of the top of the trim on the door handle. Push this up while pulling on the bottom. This should remove the trim and expose the screws.

Determine the type of screws used on your GE refrigerator model; it will vary. Select the correct type and size of screwdriver. Tighten the screws.

Replace the trim by snapping it back over the handle.

Screw the handle in, making sure it is held securely in place. Test it by pulling on the handle a few times.

Take care.

How to tighten loose set screws on freezer door handle on ken more fridge with bottom mount freezer, model no. 269-76353019


I think that the handle is attached either to the door edge or the face. In either case the screws are usually hidden behind a small trim panel. This needs to be removed to expose the screws. I don't know what type of screws have been used. They're usually cross heads but occasionally they require an allen key to remove them.

Loose freezer door handle


There is a "set screw" on the underside of the posts that connect the handle to the mounting posts on the face of the door of my Jenn-Air bottom freezer. Use an Allen wrench to loosen the set crew, which is very small (my Jenn-Air requires a 3/32" Allen wrench), and then tighten the bolt on the mounting post on the face of the freezer door. Position the handle over the post, then tighten the set screws with the Allen wrench. Cynthia

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.

I nee to tighten up the freezer door handle on a sub zero 650?


There are different handles depending on serial number. The older of the two is at the top of the door. The screws are covered with a magnetic trim piece. You can remove this by putting tape on the chrome and pull up. You can then tighten the nuber two phillips head screws. The newer model is on the door itself. These are held on with small set screws accessed from the bottom of the handle. You may get by just tightening the set screws. If not you need to remove the handle by removing the set screws. You can then tighten the standoff and reatach the handle. For the 632 same procedure except it will be on the side.

Bottom freezer door handle loose


There is a plastic card that you are supposed to slide under the right side of the handle. Once you have done this correctly the whole handle should slide off to the left.

Bottom Freezer door handle


I had the same problem. It took me an hour to figure out that the bottom freezer handles clips onto the door using butterfly clips. To tighten the clips you have to remove the handle by sliding it to the right (or left??) It snaps right out with a quick **** exposing the clips underneath. A quick tightening of the clips and the handle snaps back in.
