I read the instructions posted by others. Removed the visible screw from the inside of the door at the top, pulled the door gasket covering exposing the bottom screw. I reattached the new handle. Viola. Thank you.
Removed a rubber seal on the inside of the door. Removed the two screws holding the old handle. Put the new handle on and screwed it in. Took less than 5 minutes.
Slip a flat bladed screwdriver under the gasket near the bottom screw and lift it out far enough to reach the screw with a phillips screwdriver. Top screw is exposed and comes out easily. Tighten both screws, push the gasket back in and you are finished. 5 min tops.
Repair was super easy. All I had to do pop out the band on the inside of door, remove screws from previous handle. I put new handle in place and screwed back in and pushed the band back into place. Super easy and only took like 10 minutes.
When I received the handle I was so excited. My husband was not home and I had read the instructions on the web site on how to remove the screws to replace the handle. It worked just like they said and was so easy, even for a 65 year old woman. Thanks
Very simple to replace. I followed another persons comments and it worked in 5-10 min.....the tip on removing the inside screen to expose the lower screw was perfect...i was very pleased with parts select....easy people to talk to and they provided the exact part i needed....i would use them for sure again !

It took all of 3 minutes to fix! Using a phillips screwdriver, unscrew top screw. I then used a putty knife to pry the seal ring open to reveal the bottom screw. I then used plyers to hold the broken plastic piece and removed the bottom screw. Hold the handle in place and screw in bottom screw, then snap seal ring back into place and replace top screw. I was shocked at how easy this was and also how fast the part was shipped. I was very pleased. Thank You!!!
As others had done, I unscrewed the top screw inside the door - used a flat blade screwdriver to pop out the molding on the inside of the door covering the lower screw - loosened the screw and took the old handle off...installed the new, snapped the molding back on - and done.
Unscrewed two screws, easily cleaned and replaced. Only difficulty was in figuring out how to remove the bottom screw. Not immediately apparent, but if you can manage to wedge out the gasket surround that circles the periphery of the door (alongside the inside), then you will have access to the phillips screw holding the handle in place. Carefully displace just enough to get access to the screw and return as you found it. Easy once you figure out how to remove the second screw.
The top screw was easy to access, and the lower screw required prying back a trim piece on the inside of the door.
I went online and found the replacement handle. I ordered it and it showed up one day later!! Excellent service.
at first i couldn't find the lower screw ,you can see the upper screw but not the lower one ,after reading your instruction it made it easy
Once I read about the microwave door handle replacement on the internet, I thought that this was a do-able job. Fellow repair people wrote clear articles on the internet and the diagrams of the microwave door were great and explained the procedure well. The cost of the door handle was about $80, and it was delivered in 5 days.
My husband took out the 2 screws from the inside of the microwave door and the ring inside the door. The bottom screw is behind the ring. Then the handle came off. Then he put the new handle in place, screwed the 2 screws back in and the ring. It was all done in 5 minutes. Very easy for him.
