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.

    If my last post didn't help you the fridge you have is different than I thought. If there are trim pieces above and/or below your handles they will have to be removed to tighten the handles. You just have to push the trim pieces up (or down if it's the lower one) with a flat blade screwdriver or putty knife. The handle screws should then be exposed so they can be tightened. If the holes are stripped you can fill them with glue (polyurethane glue works well) then let it dry and use the same or some coarse threaded screws.

SOURCE: door handle is loose on model#gsh22jftacc. how do you tighten?

If it's the same as the one we have (which is similar to the pic posted on yours) there's a plastic piece on the top and bottom of the handle that you have to pry up (gently) to get to them.
It looks like a line that runs horizontal across the handle, but it should come up with a little force (meaning it shouldn't require tools). You have to pry it from the side, not the top or bottom.

SOURCE: Ge profile refrigerator door handle is loose

On the GE Profile, the handle is mounted to two small screws. To detach the plastic housing, you must press on the two connection points (the base and top of the handles) and slide the handle up or down (takes some effort). The handle will come off and you will have very easy access to these 10mm screws.

SOURCE: The handle on my refrigerator door (Admiral side

There is a plastic card that came with the refrigerator. Pull the handle towards you and slide the card between the door and handle on the top side of the lower handle. Slide the card until it stops, I believe its 11/16". Next slide the handle upward to release it. It may take some force to release the handle. Once its removed, you will see a bracket on the handle. In my case, the screws were loose. Tighten the screws and replace the handle and its fixed. To reinstall the handle, line up the handle with the brackets on the door. Slide down until you here a click that indicates that the handle is installed properly.

Hi,


1. off the upper and lower ends with flat plastic or apadded flat head screw driver so as not to scratch your stainless steel. Atwisting wrist action will suffice. 2. Now the screws are exposed, you can re-tighten them. 3. Replace the plastic covers starting with the base whichhas a small plastic the goes into a slot in the main handle. Then glide therest forward and it snaps in effortlessly.

How do you remove the handle to get to the screws to tighten the handle its very loose


Hello Martin;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number which is located on the upper inside wall of your fresh food section. So, I can not be accurate in regards to your unit.

1.) Inspect your handles. Are there 3/32" allen wrench screws at the top and bottom? If so back off the screws until the handle comes off. Then tighten the screw on the refrigerator door. Put handle back on the and tighten the 3/32" screws.

2.) No external screws - Then the handles are held on in a slip in slot fashion. Pull up on the door handle. This is going to take a little mussel. Remove the door handle. Tighten the screws on the door and the back of the handle. Slide handle back into place.

Sub-Zero 601R door handle is loose


My Sub is a 650S. Not sure your handle assy. is the same or not. But each of the 2 attachment points have a small 3/32" set screw on the bottom of each short piece between the vertical handle and the door. These set screws grab onto posts that are screwed into the door. There can be 3 points where the handle can work loose.
1. The set screw(s) have backed out and not holding tightly onto the door studs. 2. The studs in the door are loose and need to be tightened with a screw driver. 3. After loosening the handle via the set screws, when you look back into the cavity vacated by the studs from the door, (pivot handle clockwise past edge of door) you will see a Philips-head screw that secures the spacer to the handle. If the spacer is loose, tighten it with screw driver. Then mount back into door stud and tighten set screw. Problem Solved. Have a beer!!!

Loose handle on 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.

Loose door handle


I just FINALLY fixed mine...  Popped little cover pieces off top and bottom of handle with a plastic bread bag tag slid along space created by loose handle (did not scratch finish on door).  That exposed the screws which could be tightened with a phillips screw driver; the cover pieces then snap back on the ends of the handle.
