you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo)
and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

SOURCE: GE Handle replacement
The handle is part number WB15X335 and you can find it online from several sources. You can replace the handle alone. You do have to remove the door inner panel to get to the handle screws.

never attempt to repair or replace the handle or any part of the door as this almost allways will lead to microwave leakage this will cause most certain death..

ok start over
you need to be looking at the inside of the door
the frame around the glass the choke
will pop off,,
take a small flat head place it between the choke and the frame down by the hinge. pry ever so carefully it will pop out slide the screwdriver around the edge until the whole choke is dislodged
once the choke is off
you will see the two screws for the handle
you may need to lift the latch mechinism to get to the bottom one
once your done you can simply push the choke back it place you will here it snap
be careful the choke is very brittle
and will break if bent
