Sometimes the screws that hold the handles on are under plastic or metal trim. see if the ends of the handles slide off, or try to take any metal trim off with a butter knife.
let me know if you need more help

GE GSH25JSXNSS Freezer door handle is loose How do i tighten it


Most side by side handles slide on and off to be able to go through doors. Try carefully putting a small screwdriver or putty knife behind the handle at the top and separating the handle a bit from the door. It should slide up. you should be ably to thghten the screws to the handle after removing the handle and slide it back on.

How do I reattach handle on freezer door pull that has come unscrewed on French Samsung refrig


Many times the handle is slid on from one side or the other onto the screws. Try sliding the handle off by gently putting a screwdriver or putty knofe under the handle on the side that is still attached and pushing the handle sideways. This should remove the handle so you can remove the mounting screw and get it back on the door. then you can slide the door handle back on after getting the screw attached on the door again.

Tighten door handle on Whirlpool Conquest refrigerator


You need to remove the handle befor eyou can tighten the mounting bolt behind it. T remove the handle just grab it and yank UP quick and hard. The handle will unclip and release, then you can tighten the bolt down and re-install the handle.

How strong do you have to be?!!! Trying that and it won\'t unclip. Not sure how hard to try--or will you break something?!!

You have to pull up pretty darn hard with a jerk. That is how both handles are removed on these conquest refrigerators

These door handles are held on by clips and are hard to remove at maytag they gave us a plastic card that you slide up under the handle and pull upward on the handle to release it from the door. DO NOT remove the inner door skin!!! the handle slides off and the screws and clip are under the handle.

I need to remove and change to the other side the GE GDL20KCSABS refrigerator door handle. The manual is unclear and there is no screw visible at all and trying to slide the handle up off the mounting is...


The handle does slide up off of the handle bracket where a screw will be visible . Remove the screws and on the other side of the door , remove the faceplate for the top screw and the plug for the bottom screw . These should pop back in the screw holes from where the handle was . If you do not see a small hex screw close to the top of the handle and bottom , then yes , the handle will pop upwards to remove . Dont try by just lifting , pop upwards with your hand or rubber mallet . Remember , these handles were made to be tight on the doors to last a long time without comeing loose .

Freezer door handle loose


u could always set the handle in place where it needs to be and use caulk or super glue to go around the handle and that should help it stay in place if that doesnt work the website www.amana.com to see if it has warranty for the broken handle good luck

Amana AFI2538AEW bottom freezer door handle is loose?


My dad's freezer handle is loose, model ABB2224DEW. Went to partselect.com and located drawing of freezer door parts. Found a link to a "do-it-yourselfer" that describes removal and replacement of the handle. Hopefully this helps.

Replacement of freezer door handle.
1. Removed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle removal instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. Removing the handle requires inserting a plastic card at least 1.5 inches under the left end of the right side of the handle so it releases the butterfly clip latch on the freezer door. Next I pulled the right side of the handle to lift it away from the freezer door. Then still holding the handle away from the door, at the spot that is 1.5 inches from the inside of the right side of the handle, I held the plastic card vertically and slid one corner of it between the handle and the freezer door and worked the card down until it released the butterfly clip latch. Keeping the card at the same space under the handle so the latch was released, I then turned the card to the left until it was horizontal and was lifting the left end of the right door handle away from the freezer door. I then slid the handle across the card to the left until it cleared both door butterfly clip latches and it lifted off the door.
2. Installed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle installation instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. The handle is curved on one edge and must be installed the curved side down. Correctly installed, the outside ends of the handle curve upward and the handle curve is down so it looks like a frowning mouth. Next holding the handle curved edge down, I turned it up so I could see the brackets and held it against the door. I lined up the handle brackets slightly to the left of the butterfly clips on the freezer door. Next I turned the handle with the brackets against the freezer door and slid it slightly to the right until the left side of the handle held onto the door butterfly clip by itself but was not latched. Then I lined up the right handle bracket with the right freezer door butterfly clip and carefully slid the whole handle to the right until I heard the left butterfly clip latch click. Next I slid the handle back slightly left once more and then slid it back to the right until I heard the right butterfly clip latch click.

Removing refrigerator door handles


You might try checking to see if the screw head is actually on the handle, but hidden by the handles cover. Look at the side and see if you notice a seam. This can be pried open and the screw head will be seen.

GE Refrigerator side by side loose door handles


I was actually trying to find a solution to this problem myself though I'm pretty sure I already know the solution. Try this: grip the handle that's loose firmly and jerk it up. The handle should come up and the straight out to reveal the spring clip mechanism holding the handle on. Tighten the screws on this and then put the handle back on by pushing it towards the fridge and jerking it down. You make want to protect the fridge above and below were the handle attaches so you don't scratch the fridge door when pulling the handle on or off.
