Bottom of handle on refrigerator door is loose

JUMP TO SOLUTION

The right door handle on the refrigerator at the bottom is loose. There is a screw at the top of the handle that's on the outside and easy to get to. But the bottom of the handle doesn't have access from the outside. i took out the bottom tray and pulled back the rubber seal to find access to tighten. But there is none. Does the whole inside of the door need to be removed? Why is there no access like the top of the handle???? Not comfortable or seeing a way to remove the whole inside door to get to this screw to tighten. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone found a solution?

Remove the entire handle by loosening the set screw in the top of the handle. Once removed you’ll see a mount on the bottom tighten screw on the bottom replace handle tighten set screw in the top of handle. Should take care of loose handle. Had same problem with mine tech was making another repair and took those steps to tighten the handle on my refrigerator.

Thank you so much. How simple, yet I had no idea the whole handle would come off that way. Again thank you!

I agree this is how to fix the problem, but is there any way to prevent it from happening? I routinely have to re-tighten that screw underneath the handle every month or so. I'm not rough on the refrigerator and no kids use it. Why does this keep happening? Is there a washer or locking screw or something similar that might work here? Is this a warranty issue? It's very annoying...
