Let me start by saying that this model microwave is nice, but there shouldn't be a plastic handle placed on it when it is mounted above a gas stove-top. The manufacturer should know this but I guess it was a poor decision on their part.

I popped the inside of the door off of the microwave. I then unscrewed the two screws that were holding the next bracket on and popped it off the door. When you take the second piece of the door off, then the glass and front come apart. You can then unscrew the two screws the hold the handle on. Replace the old handle with the new one and work back in the steps you took. A small tipped screw driver is a must.
