ES300 electric range. the handle of the oven keeps falling

Resolved Question:

ES300 electric range. the handle of the oven keeps falling off. the screws cannot be screwed in by conventional tools (ie; a screwdriver or an allen wrench, nor can a wrench be used because it is flat-headed). the whole door comes apart so the oven can't be used. what a ridiculous way to make it. please tell me how to fix it asap.

This is very common for these screws to get loose, and once they do they will continue to get loose and fall out time and time again. Just add some Locktight glue to the screw threads and that will stop the screw from ever backing out once it dries (takes about 12 hours).

is there a tool i can use to screw it in?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 years ago.
it should be just a size 20 torx bit screwdriver so it looks like an alen wrench but it's more of a start shape no?
