I opened the microwave door. If you take a small thin screwdriver and pry the inner shell from the outer one all the way around on the door. This releases the two. Then you take the screwdriver and (carefully) pry the shell off the door from plastic snaps all the way around. Then take out two screws holding the metal shell from the door. You have to be quick when this happens the shell will drop down immediately! This will allow you to find the two screws holding the handle on the door. Unscrew them discard the damaged handle. Put the two screws in attach that to your new handle. Put the door back on in reverse order and you have fixed your problem. Have someone pat you on the back for a job well done!

First of all the replacement part from PartSelect was not the original equipment part and it did not match exactly. However the handle from PartSelect seemed to be made of thicker plastic and the holes did align correctly. First, remove the door by taking a small flat bladed screwdriver and prying up on the top of the top hinge on the door. Tip the door down and forward and the bottom hinge pin will slide out of it's hole. Next with the same small flat blade screw driver, pry the seal/ finish piece from the backside of the door. Next take a phillips screw driver and remove the 2 screws by the latch assembly then take a small flat blade screw driver and carefully pop the inner glass piece from the 8-12 plastic clips on the inside of the door front. This will expose the 2 screws holding the door handle in place. Remove the door handle screws with a phillips screw driver. If the plastic that the screw goes into is broken away from the handle you will need a pliers to hold the plastic piece because the the screw will be tight in there. Screw in the new handle, press the inner glass back into the door making sure all the clips grab the moulding. Next snap the seal/outer trim piece back into place and replace the door on the hinges. Put the bottom hinge in first then the top hinge. It may be easier to use a small flat screw driver to depress the top hinge to allow the hinge pin on the door to slide in more easily.
