You need to remove the black liner completely and the screws are visible them

Thanks for the reply. I actually figured it out after posting on the forum.

It's a very difficult process, and it's actually not the liner that needs to be removed. In fact, even if you remove the liner completely for whatever reason, the screws are still not accessible, or even visible. The exterior fascia of the door must be removed from the frame. The interior liner can be removed, but does not need to be. With the way mine ended up getting cracked and torn, I wouldn't recommend even messing with the liner on this model.

Oh, and keep a good hold on the glass. The glass fell out of mine, five feet to the floor, but luckily didn't break when it hit the tile.

This does not work for Frigidaire model FMV157CG. There is another layer inside the door that must be removed. Is this even possible?

Default Kitchenaid khms155lss-3 Door Replacement

I tried a million different things but this page finally keyed me in on how to replace this. You have to put about 8 butter knives in to get the hooks out and then apply pressure to about half of them. The door pops off and you have access to the handle.

Thumbs up Thanks Chemosh013

I just replaced my handle for the KHMS155LSS1 thanks to the post about the 8 butter knives. I decided to post a reply with pictures to help others out since this kept me from doing major damage to my microwave. There are 9 plastic hooks in the bottom outer cover, 9 at the top and a few at the inner edge. I did not count but it may be 5 or 6. I first used a plastic putty knife thinking the plastic would not damage anything, but I damaged 6 of the bottom hooks before I found this page and used 9 butter knifes.

A metal putty knife is thinner and easier to slide into the plastic outer cover and inner liner. You can also feel where the hooks are with the putty knife and pry it open a little to know where to put the butter knifes. Like Chemosh013 said, you pry down on about 4 of the butter knifes just enough so the hooks are released from the holes. Since I had already broken 6 of the bottom plastic hooks, my knives all fell down to the stove top when the remaining three bottom hooks were released. I had put all 9 knives in since I was not sure at first if there were still small hooks left that would catch.

After releasing the bottom hooks, you may need two people to help release the top hooks because the outer cover can fall and break the glass. There are no hooks on the side where the 3 screws are so the inner hooks do not do much once the bottom and top hooks are released.

Hope this helps other people.
