THere are two screws holding the door handle. One is easliy accessed, the other is hidden.

There is a plastice seal that needs to be removed from inside the door. Its about 1/3 of an inch wide and is on the inside of the door surrounding the glass. It is NOT on the jam but on the inside surface of the door itself. You need thin tool to begin to pry out the seal. Once the first section is loose the rest comes out easily.
The hidden screw is easily accessible once the seal is out.
Simply pop back in when done.

Because of it's age and my memory of it's wall installation problems, I was extremely happy to find the parts.

There were only two screws holding the door handle in place. The first is obvious but the second requires that you snap off the plastic window cover on the door. I only took it partially off using a butter knife to lift it. It snaps out easily.
Take out both screws which removes all parts of the old handle. Then just put in the new handle and use old screws to secure it in place. Except for removing the plastic cover, this was absolutely trivial.
$60 seems expensive for a plastic door handle, but it is cheaper than a new unit.

I loosened the screw that held the top of the handle onto the door of the microwave, and also removed the gasket on the inside of the door, exposing the bottom screw holding the lower end of the handle to the door. I removed the old handle parts and placed the new handle in the proper location, and then screwed the handle into place. I replaced the gasket, and I was done!
It was painless.

The old handle had broken. DESIGN FLAW WITH GE MICROWAVES. I have replaced them on 3 different ovens!

Thankfully I read someone else's report. I remove the top screw with ease and then pried off the cover surronding the glass panel enough to get access to the lower screw and removed it. Then I just screwed the screws back into the new handle and snapped the plastic covering back in place and "Bob's your uncle"

This repair was easy and could be done by anyone. If you undertake to do this replacement, remember to slowly bend the medal tabs back that hold the lens. Handled roughly these tabs could break off.
