After sometime with ware & tear, UPVC door handles can become Stiff, Loose or Wobbly. Furthermore, wobbly door handles can be caused by a dropped door, damaged handles, broken springs or a problem with the multi-point locking system.
Don’t panic as it is rare for the door handle to fall off and moreover you won’t need a new door.
There are two main causes for this problem:
- Worn handle due to age and usage
- Damaged handle due to stiff operation of the door/lock
For cause (1) replacement handles are all that is required.
For cause (2) replacement handles plus door/lock adjustments are required.
With this in mind, if your door handle is stiff to operate or loose/wobbly? Then it is worth getting it fixed before more damage is caused, saving you money in the long run. Your multi-point locking system are prone to jamming or breaking, if the handle is stiff.

Wobbly door handle springs
Some locking systems use springs inside the multi-point locking systems, additionally others use springs inside the door handles. Are your springs worn or broken inside your wobbly door handles? The springs can often be replaced but not all handles have replaceable spring sets. Unfortunately, if your style of the handle does not have replaceable springs. Then your only option would be to replace the door handle set or lock.
