I opened the door to the microwave, I removed any screw visible with a screwdriver that's behind the door itself. Next you need to get inside of the door frame, so you need to slip something thin, like a metal putty knife in between and slowly pry it open, it comes out real easy. Now the screws that hold the handle are visible and easily reached. When your finished replacing the handle, carefully squeeze with your hands the two pieces together again and put back the screws. Thats it.
Used flathead screwdriver around the interior edges of the front panel to pry off the front panel. The handle comes with it and along with a glass panel inside. Pry off that glass panel and transer it to the new front panel and pop it back in. I removed the two screws from the cracked handle and used them to install the handle to the new front panel. But, before this I added a couple of plastic washers to hopefully distribute the load better against the front panel and maybe prolong the life of the repair. I cleaned the interior glass, since that's hopefully the last we'll ever see of it. Take the whole assy and just snap it back in place on the door. This $100 in parts probably saved me $600-700 for a new microwave / over-oven install charge.
