There is a long vertical handle held to the door by two short horizontal pieces. Run your finder along the under side of the two short pieces and feel for a very small indentation under each one. Each one is a set screw with an Allen head. Insert a small Allen wrench (English not Metric -- I don't know the size, but it is probably the next to the smallest in the set) into each one and back them out (counterclockwise looking up at the screw). The big vertical handle should come off when you back the Allen screws out far enough Now look into the short pieces sticking out from the door. Inside each one is a Philips screw holding the piece to the door. Tighten those screws with a small Philips screw driver making sure that the indents on the front of pieces will align with the vertical bar when you put it back on. When the Philips screws are tight, put the vertical bar back on and tighten the Allen screws. If you have some Loc-Tite, you might use that as well.
On my glass shower door handles, one inside and one outside there are button like screws hold the shower handles on. If you look closely you will see a small hole in the edge of the button. This hole is used to turn the button screw. This is not an Allen set screw, but rather how you turn the button screw. Insert a small Allen wrench into the side hole and rotate the button screw (not the wrench which acts as a tightening bar) clockwise to tighten or counterclockwise to loosen.
The handles are retained by tiny screws. You will need an allen key to tighten the screws. If the handle is damaged you will need to replace the part. If you need to replace the handle buy the single handle rather than the kit. The kit will be more expensive.

It looks like your handle is the style that slips over a screw that is threaded into the face of the door... According to your owner's manual you most likely just tighten the small allen head screws to secure it. It lists the screw size as 3/32. You should have been left the allen head with your paperwork when you bought it.
There is a "set screw" on the underside of the posts that connect the handle to the mounting posts on the face of the door of my Jenn-Air bottom freezer. Use an Allen wrench to loosen the set crew, which is very small (my Jenn-Air requires a 3/32" Allen wrench), and then tighten the bolt on the mounting post on the face of the freezer door. Position the handle over the post, then tighten the set screws with the Allen wrench. Cynthia
Just did this on mine today. Use an allen wrench to back off both the upper and lower set screws
(Note: you do not need to back them all the way out). The handle will
then easily pull away from the door. With a 1/4" socket, tighten the
screws holding the upper and lower lugs on the door. Place the handle
back on and tighten the upper and lower set screws.
