Handle is black in color.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
The handle is held in place with two phillips-head screws. To access these, the plastic cover on the inside of the door must be removed. I used the putty knife to carefully disengage the retaining clips located all around the outside edge of the cover, starting at one corner, and removed the cover. The handle screws are easily removed using the philips screwdriver. I placed the new handle over the holes and tightened the two screws. I replaced the inner plastic cover by snapping it back in place and the oven was good as new.

I seperated the trim from the inside of the door very carfully with a putty knife. I removed the two door handle screws. installed the new handle and replaced the trim.
The repair itself was easy, the difficulty was in removing the cover on the inside of the microwave door. Once I got the cover off, the repair took 10 minutes. The screws sent with the handle were too long and as result I poked a hole through the backside of the handle.
Pulled off the liner inside the door and replace the handle with the 2 screws. Easy, took 20 minutesI got instructions from someone who wrote about doing the repair, no instructions came with the part. As another writer noted, the screws included with the part were too long to use.
Used plastic putty knife to pop the inside part of door out. Its plastic with tabs that grab the outer part of the door. Removed old handle & replaced.Keep & re-use old screws. New ones too long.
Fortunately I found a repair video on the internet which described how to get the internal facia piece out of the door to get access to the handle screws. Once I knew how to do that the rest was simple.
removed frame, took screws out of top and bottom holes, pulling inside frame away from inside of door, aligned handle, put screws back in (difficult, not much room to work), snapped inside frame back in to place and replaced plastic frame to top, sides and bottom of door. I must say that this is the second time in less than a year that I have had to replace the handle and the screws enclosed with the handle are too long. If you screw them all the way in, they go through the handle on the outside of the door. I was not pleased that the handle lasted less than a year and it was $60. But that is the only problem I have had with this microwave.
took frame away from inside of door - removed old handle - attached new handle. On line informationa and directions were very helpful, however it would have been better if instructions were sent with part. Also, screws on new handle were too long for door and started to go through the handle, damaging new handle so had to use old screws from old handle.
It took a little while to figure out how to get to the screws to remove the old broken handle. Once I was able to pull off the trim from inside the door, exposing and taking out the old screws was very easy. Putting the new screws in for the new handle would have been easier if I had smaller hands, but it all worked out.
