Ok, the first thing you need to do is remove the handle completely. The handle comes of by grabbing it firmly and yanking straight to the left with a hard jerk. Now, sometimes when installers install the refrigerator they will take the handles off to get the refrigerator through the door and accidentally install the handle upside down. If that's the case, then you'd have to pull straight to the right with a hard jerk to remove it.

Either way, once the handle has been removed, there are 2 bolts going into the face of the freezer drawer. Tighten these screws down, then you can put the handle back on the bolts by sliding the handle in the opposite direction until it clicks.

- I hope I have earned a five star rating from you. Since we are on the honor system, Just Answer will only credit me for my time if you rate me positively. A rating of 4 or 5 stars at the TOP RIGHT of your screen will allow free follow up questions for this appliance through this link. Thank you.
