It appears that you will need to take the door apart to just re tighten the door handle screws .

and I recommend that you use lock tight on the screw threads so it does not come loose again.

Seriously? Have you actually looked at the schematic for this very refrigerator? It doesn't appear you can take the door apart.

sure you can you have gto remove the door gasket to get to the screws to take the inner and outer door apart.

The parts diagram does not show the handle as a separate part which tells me the handle is not dezigned to be removed.
