First, take a butter knife and gently pry out the plastic frame inside the door of the microwave. There are tabs holding it in place in 12-15 different spots. Then there are two screws on the left side of the door back that need to be removed. Then we used a butter knife again to go around the door frame and pry off the actual door so that all that was left was a metal bracket attached to the actual microwave. Be sure to hold the door as you pry it off so it doesn't just fall to the ground and shatter the tempered glass. At this point, you can access the two screws for the handle. Work backwards to put everything together again. The final plastic frame just pops right back in and... hopefully... wha-la, new handle. Good luck!
