Yes mine too no matter how careful I was and I'm not a DIY newbie with fixing things. Trim piece on order now :rolleyes:

Vid I posted in above post is exactly what pertains to my model (KHMS155LSS4) after trim piece #2 is removed showing no handle screws. One thing the vid doesn't show that was the only way I got mine apart, was to bend the metal away at each plastic hook for much easier removal like in vid. Don't forget to bend the metal back to original shape once done with installing new handle and sandwiching the two door components back together. That will allow trim piece to snap back in place correctly.

Why oh why didn't they give us a 'real' stainless steel handle in the first place. Certainly paid a pretty penny for the stainless steel model...what cheap-o's.

I have a Whirlpool Model MH1150XMS3 and broke the inner plastic bit that I was removing with the butter knife. Do I have to replace the entire door to fix my mistake? I really hope not and am regretting not using a professional instead of thinking that I can do this for myself.

By the way, when I finally got it off I couldn't find the screws that I needed to replace the broken door handle.

Hello,

Did you mean the inner frame (#2 at the diagram)? If this is correct then you can replace it.

Thank you so much for the help, after watching the video you showed and taking my time to do as you showed and not getting frustrated, the microwave frame came out in a cinch, I removed the lower screw and am ordering the new handle today. It is very easy to replace. It should take about 5 minutes once new handle arrives, if that long. Thank you, y'all are great.

I'm waiting for handle to arrive and then I could do video of installing it, but not sure how to upload video. Getting to the bottom screw looks harder than it is, I have already removed old piece of handle from the bottom and it will really only take a couple of minutes to install new handle. When I started looking into this, there were comments that the whole door would have to be replace, or may just have to buy new microwave. I'm so happy it was so easy, the hardest part is waiting for the new handle and limiting the use of the microwave with the "top screw only" holding the handle on, have to be gentle opening door.
