Loose door handle GE two door freezer/frig model TFG 22JADAWW
The top, centre and bottom of the door handle are loose on my GE frig. Can anyone help me? Not sure whether to remove the handle cover (is it in three sections?) or try another ay to remove and tighten. Help, please!

Called and watched mechanic who clipped of top and bottom covers with a screw driver then tightened both screws and replaced covers. Cost was $100 but I could have wrecked the door. Needs a special little star shaped screw driver head with ratchet fitting. Now equipped for next time.

look for a small hole on one side of the handle. There should be a set screw there you can tighten. (the handle attaches to a ball shaped peg under the handle, and does not attach from the inside of the door)
The door handles mount on hex bolts sticking out of the door, the door handles have key hole inserts that match with the bolts. The door handles are then slid in one direction to lock the handles in place. Removal is the reverse. To tighten the door handle screw the bolt out enough that you can still put the handle over the bolt heads and slide the handle to lock the handle in place.
To tighten the screw the first step is to remove the handle. With this model just pull straight up on the handle. It can take a little force but after it finally unclips it moves up an inch or two then pulls straight out. Good luck!
easy, get the model number from inside the frig. go to sears .com put your model number in and you will get the whole diagram of your frig. and how the handles come off,i'am thinking if you don't see the screws you have a panel over them that will slide up or down to let you get to the screws ,let me know how you do-mike
