You must pry out the plastic strip that surrounds the window on the inside of the door to reach the top screw that holds on the handle. Be prepared to spend a pretty penny on the replacement handle as well.

    Good luck! It's not hard once you remove the plastic. As I recall, the handle was around $50 with S&H!

Normally 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.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

I have a whirlpool mh1150xms-3 and the handle is broke! how do i replace it without breaking the glass? i took out the 3 screws on the left side and it wont seperate from the outside case!


Unplug the microwave oven from its power outlet or turn off its circuit breaker. Remove the right fuse from the home fuse-box if your microwave is a built-in model.


Open the microwave door and take the top pin off its pivot bracket. Lift up the door and remove it from the bottom bracket. Lay the microwave door with its front side down on a folded towel. Remove the two choke screws from the door frame using a Phillips head screwdriver.


Remove the choke cover with the knife blade, starting from the microwave door's top right corner. Pry out the bottom and top right sides, leaving the side which houses the door handle in place.


Remove the choke tabs from their slots on the microwave door frame using the knife blade. Continue to work clockwise around your microwave door; remove the choker cover when you get to your handle's side to separate it from your choke.


Remove the two handles with the Phillips screwdriver. Remove the handle from the microwave.


Screw the new handle in the position of the original handle. Lay the choke on the microwave door; set the choke cover right on top of it. Insert the choke tabs into their slots on the microwave door frame using the knife blade.


Secure the two choke screws using a Phillips head screwdriver; set the microwave door back on the bottom bracket. Slide the top pin into the microwave's pivot bracket.


Press the top pin down until it pops securely into place.

remove the inner panel on the door itself and with the use of a Flathead screwdriver carefully pry off starting closest to the door hinge and careful not to break off the tabs push them down one by one until you free the top and remove all together now then 2 screws or nuts are accessible simply remove and replace .set the bottom of the trim panel in place then snap the upper portion back into place ..you are done

Check out this door frame diagram, specifically number 1805. It clips on to the door frame. Remove it using a dull table knife or something similar (be careful not to scratch or break anything). You will then have access to the bottom screw.
