This handle is bisque.
I had to pop off the facing on the microwave on the inside and then on the outside. On the inside, I used a kitchen knife to carefully pop off the facing. I found the screws that were holding the old handle on. I had to pop the back of the microwave door off to gain access to the other screws for the handles. The outer screws had to be put in place first, making sure that the glass did not slip. The facing needed to be popped back on before the inner screws were tightened. I tightened the inner screws and then popped the facing back on. The thing that took me the longest was figuring out how to pop the facing off and lining up the screws in the handles correctly.

I used the kitchen knife to remove the inside cover on the door. There are tabs which hold it in place along the vertical sides. Then removed the two screws holding the handle in place and replaced it with the new handle. Replaced the inside door cover. Thanks for the tip on using the knife to remove the inside cover!! It was easy!
First removed the inner panel. Use kitchen knife. Panel is snapped on. I could not remove hinge end so just pulled panel back. Two screws are then easily removed . Then the handle end top and bottom of outer panel must be snapped off. I could then get enough clearence to remove the two other screws which go thru outer panel only. I replaced the handle and reassembled in reverse order.
First i pick up all the tools that I thought would be needed for the door handle replacement. I looked at the exploded diagram online, but did not know how to remove the inside panel to expose the handle mounting screws? I did not want to break any more plastic parts by pulling to hard on the old weaken parts. I have 30 years experience repairing office and banking equipment but never took a microwave apart.. Next I read two reviews by two different women explaining how easy it was to take off the inside panel with a butter knife---yes a butter knife. The knife worked great and I never would have used a knife. Everything just unsnapped from there on. Thank You to those women.
Removed the 1 inch plastic frame on inside of door, gave me access to 1 set of screws. The problem I encountered was, getting to the set that holds the handle to the door.I didn't realize the metal frame held the outside with flexible hooks, therefore once u snapped them off, the outside with the handle on it HIT the floor glass and all!Fortunately it didn't break. Supporting the outside is most important.
First remove the inner frame, take out the two screws holding the handle on. Detach the handle and outer frame making sure you hold the glass as this comes out with the frame. Fit the glass into the new frame, fit the frame to the door, sit the new handle in position and screw the two screws through the door skin and outer frame.Clip the inner frame in position and job done. It's as easy as that.
Open the door. Pry out the plastic cover shield to expose the bottom screw. Remove the screws and the remains of the broken handle. Install the new handle. Reinstall the cover.Piece of cake!
Followed instructions listed here that I needed to separate the inside facing on the door with a butter knife so that I could see the two screws that held the handle in place. Easy off, easy on. And I am NOT a very good handy man.
I removed the inner bracket that held the glass in place with a nylon dish scraper that we use to clean our pots and pans with. It was safer than using a screw driver. I inserted the tapered portion of the scraper between in the bracket and the door edge on the inside of course,then slid it across the opening all around the door until the it separated. Making it easy to remove scews for the handle and the glass bracket.
