the top screw is plainly visible, the bottom screw is not and may give pause. If you remove the plastic ring, on the interior face of the door, it will give access to the bottom screw for the handle. While you have the handle off, remove the backing plate for the handle, on the front of the door by pulling outward, gently until it pops off. Then you can slide the front glass panel out and clean it. {CAUTION: do not spray any cleaner on the exposed glass with the mesh on it, it will be impossible to remove any liquid and will cause fogging when you replace the outer glass panel}. Replace clean glass panel, and handle backing plate, make sure it snaps in fully so the screw holes line up properly. Screw on new handle, replace plastic ring and you are back in business.
