My repair worked out to be a cinch! My microwave looked very funny without it's handle. I did a little research on how to replace the handle and after popping the insert out of the inside of the microwave door, I was then able to remove the two screws that held the outside panel of the door (the part with the glass) to the part with the hinges. After removing the screws, I carefully used my trusty butter knife and screw driver to pry and pop the outside panel away. This was the most time consuming part of the job. However, once it was fully off, I unscrewed the screws that held the previous handle on and fastened the new handle with the new screws provided. Popping the door all back together was super easy. However, don't forget to put the screws back in that hold the outter panel on to the part with the hinges. :-) Good luck DIY'ers!!
