My GE ZDWC240NBS wine chiller/ beverage fridge has a vertical stainless steel handle which secures to the door frame in 2 places. The handle connection on top has worked loose over the past year to the point where it pulls away from the door about 1/4 inch every time I pull on the handle. There is a screw or bolt that holds the handle onto the door, but there doesn't appear to be any way to access the bolt to tighten the handle. There is a small hole in the stainless steel tube that wraps around the bolt, it looks like an allen wrench would fit into it and like it might tighten the handle, but I tried both standard and metric wrenches and nothing seems to fit.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is an easy fix. The part that is loose is the tube portion. The 2 screws on the bottom tube are a set screw that hold the handle. These screws are a star bit and not Allen. Loosen these 2 set screws and the handle will come off leaving the tube still on the door. Then inside the tube is an Allen screw. Tighten this Allen screw and it will fix the problem. Then put the handle back on.

look for a small hole on one side of the handle. There should be a set screw there you can tighten. (the handle attaches to a ball shaped peg under the handle, and does not attach from the inside of the door)
You cant find a hole to insert screw from outside. It is true, and you can't fix it yourself to what it looked like earlier. The company first screws in through the handle and then covers the hole made by it with the material of the handle. If you have to fix it yourself, you can only pierce those screws through the handle leaving the mark behind. If you don't want that, contact your company or dealer.
handle secured by 4 stainless stand offs on each door correct?, i would look closley at the underneath of the standoffs should be a screw to tighten/loosen. . actually lookin at diagram theses are comlete doorskins wrapped around the door itself you might need to remove teh screws on top and bottom ofr door skins and tighten from behind s/s skin
I may need to know your model # from the sticker inside the fridge to view a diagram but usually there is are small set screws (usually 2) on the handle which are allen head that can be tightened. Look for this first and let me know if there are no set screws. If this is your setup then I would appreciate a solved rating.
