Help with loose door handle on 10-year old Maytag refrigerator

Dave Mc

We have a bottom-freezer refrigerator with a slide-out freezer compartment. There is a long handle across the top of the freezer drawer that you pull to open it. It is becoming more and more loose, and the owner's manual is not offering much help. All of the videos I find online are for handles either with set-screws in the handle or with door handle clips on the door, and my unit has neither. The photo below shows the current state, and it seems pretty clear that there is no clip. The exposed surface of the handle is perfectly smooth -- no set screw.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is it something I should be able to fix? It looks like it should be simple...
