Yes you can tight the handle.If the handle is coming loose, that means the screws are coming loose.The handle is fitted via screws from inside.You will have to open the door, then from inside remove the inner door panel.Once the inner is out, on the back side of door you will see the screws.Just re-tight the screws and handle is tight.Then replace the panel and tight it.

    Part number 4 is the inside panel.Its fitted by screws or clips.You will need thin knife to insert in the door panel gap.Open the door and in the inner side there is panel.Remove that panel out and you will see the screws.


    This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

KSRS25CSMS02. The benzyl is loose for the ice maker and water on the freezer door. How do you remove it or tighten it up?

It should snap on because it (the facade) has plastic tabs that should snap into locking tabs as seen in the video below. Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911
