ordered matching handle on internet. Pried black plastic panel off inside of door--PLASTIC TABS HOLDING PANEL BREAK OFF EASILY AND MAY KEEP PANEL PERMANENTLY LOOSE--good luck! Metal frame holding window glass pried off of front of microwave(AGAIN PLASTIC TABS HOLD IT AND CAN BREAKOFF) use small wedges to pry tabs up and off metal frame. Remove screws holding handle, screw on new handle (very firmly) and assemble in reverse order.
