If you look at the door handle theres 2 fixing bars which are attached to the door.

You need to look on the bottom of each of these and theres a small hole with a small crub screw in there. Its usually a small allen key. You need to tighten this up on both parts and that will tighen the door handle from there.

Let me know how it goes.

Yes, You need to tighten each bar as theres a screw on each one and that will do it.

Sorry for the auto call offer, I have no control over those. The model number you posted is not the refrigerator you have. Can you please double check that model number so I can prepare the most accurate information for you? The model tag is in the refrigerator section, high on a side wall or on the ceiling.

No! Nothing!!
Appliance Technician: Rusty S, Home Appliance Technician replied 6 months ago

Well, I am not able to find the right model because the one you have shows a completely different style of handle, see the link below.
