I went on the PartSelect page and found the model # for my microwave and ordered the handle. I thought I was going to have to wait for several weeks but it arrived in three days. The only glitch was that the plastic end of the broken handle was still attached to the screw and I couldn't get a grip on it in order to remove the I tried several different things... ultimately using a corkscrew to pierce the old piece of plastic handle thus allowing me to remove the screw and in two minutes I was able to replace the handle.
I can't believe it was that easy. Thank you.
