Examine the hinges. They may be bolted from the outside at the door side. Another option is remove the 'drop pins' holding the two half's of the hinge together. Some hinge pins are only held in with a spring clip. Your only other option is to remove the front wing and unbolt the door with the hinges still on.
To remove the pins-
NOTE THIS IS A TWO PERSON JOB!!
Proceed as follows...
Support the weight of open the door.
Tap the spring clip sideways off the thin end of the pins,
(located top of the top hinge and bottom of the bottom hinge).
Tap the bottom pin upwards then the top hinge downwards.
You might need to wriggle the door to get them to move.
Put the bottom pin in first as it 'drops' in and the upper pin pushes up into position.
Again, you will have to wriggle the door and GENTLY tap the pins into place.
Swopping the the pins makes it easier to line up the new door as it closes.
Door handle broken? Don't replace the entire door, or the entire microwave oven. As long as the the door facing is still intact, the door handle can be replaced at a fraction of the cost. On MOST microwave ovens, all you have to do is remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The panel is pressed in place and can be removed by using a small screwdriver or putty knife and carefully insert along the seam of the inner panel to release the clips that hold it in place so you can pry the plastic up. Work your way slowly around the perimeter of the glass to pop the panel loose. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that shields you from harmful RF radiation.
With the inner panel removed, the door handle screws should be visibile and can easily be accessed with a screwdriver. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel, gradually working your way around the perimeter of the door glass to ensure it snaps back into place and seats properly.
This repair can be done with the door in place, or you can remove it for easier access. If you decide the remove the door, open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. On some microwaves, you may have to remove the upper grill cover over the door (if equipped) to accommodate door removal. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.
NOTE: Some doors have a hinge pin that needs to be removed, or screws holding the door in place at the hinge.
There are several parts sources available that you can use to purchase replacement parts:
These are a few of the trusted sources that I have personally used that offer great service with competitive pricing. The first three sites on the list also offer helpful exploded view parts listings to aid in parts identification and location. Just type in your model number and locate the parts listing for the door. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this advice is helpful.
You will remove any clips,pins,etc from the pins you will be inserting into the hinge holes of the grill.
Have someone hold the lid and you align the holes of the hinge together from the base and lid.
After they are aligned then you will insert the pin into the aligned holes and insert or clip on the retaining clip,pin,cotter pin,etc on the end of the pins you just inserted to lock them into place and to keep from losing them.

You should be able to buy new springs or the hinge complete from most appliance parts outlets. On some Westinghouse, the door will slide straight off the hinges but on others, you have to strip the door to get at them. Try opening the door and see if the door slides up and away from the oven. If it does, its pretty easy to change the hinge, if not, there will be a little clip on each hinge which locks the arm in place. Slide the clip on both hinges to the front and then you can lift the door up and out of the oven. remove the screws holding the door together and then you will see the 2 screws which hold the hinges in. Order a left (or right) hand side whatever one you need, but I would suggest that they are replaced as a pair, otherwise the door may not close evenly.
I had the same problem and found nothing online to fix it so based on what little I could find and some common sense I got it done fairly easily. Here's what I did...if you need more detail on any step either re-read it to see if you missed something or let me know 'cause maybe I missed something.
Standard warning - you are dealing with small screws, small parts and things that might break. If you damage your camera trying this repair - please don't blame me! <G>
1) remove batteries and memory card
2) carefully remove screws around the outside.
There are: 3 on the bottom, 1 under the plastic usb cover on the left side, 3 on the right side. Once those are out, remove the clip that holds the wrist strap and you'll find 1 more on the top of the camera under the wrist strap clip.
3) starting at the bottom of the camera, gently separate the back cover from the camera body. YOU DON'T NEED TO TOTALLY REMOVE THE COVER!
4) (note the small spring on the battery hatch - when you complete the next step that spring will come out so look at where it is, which way it is and don't lose it!) While holding the cover and camera body apart slightly, use a pair of fine needlenose pliers or possibly tweezers & slide the pin that holds the hatch in place toward the back of the camera until the spring and door come off. You don't need to totally remove the pin.
5) take your new door assembly and put it in place. the fun part is the little spring - the shorter end of it has to go through a small hole at the back of the hinge area, the longer end puts pressure against the hatch. Once the spring is in place, hold it there and slide the pin back into place (I found that just allowing the cover and body to come back together moved it into place).
6) try the hatch to make sure it opens/closes freely and latches
7) put the screws back in place - note that one of them is shorter than all the others - that one goes on the top of the camera under the wrist strap clip
Hope this helps!
Please note - this is the only digital I've taken apart so I'm not likely to be able to help with other makes and models but feel free to ask!
