I brought a new handle to replace the broken one. I have removed the back plastic plate as instructed but I cannot see the screws for the door handle. I appears that the entire door must come off and be taken apart. I have not seen any instructions for that anywhere.

thanks:mad:

You've done most of the job,already,

Your going to need a putty knife or flat blade screw driver(again).

See this thread: How to replace microwave door handle and read the info below.

Starting at the top edge of the door near
the center and working clockwise, use a
putty knife, and pry the latching tabs of
the choke out of the door frame slots. Lift
the choke as you release the tabs so they
do not snap back into the slots. NOTE:

When you reach the handle side of door,
pull both the choke and the choke cover
away from the door frame, and then separate

the two components.

You'll then have access to the door handle screws, and can change the part.

Good Luck,
:) :) :)
