The door handle on the microwave had broken at the bottom fastener, and several glue repair attempts had proved futile over time. After removing the existing handle, I needed to bore the existing hole a little, to remove glue and plastic remnants. So I used a 5/16" drill bit and bored the hole to a depth of about 1/8." Once this was done, I used the existing fasteners and attached the new door handle. No movement in the handle when the door is pulled.
