Question about Kenmore 62702 Microwave Oven
Have a kenmore microwave model 721.80593402 need to replace the handle. have thehandle but can't seem to get it replaced
To access the door handle mounting screws, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to simply pry the plastic up and work your way gradually around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.
The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: replace handle on microwave oven
The part number for a new handle is 820941 and costs approx. $19. If you already have the part and are wanting to install it follow these steps:
You can either do this with the door in place, or remove it. To remove it, you open the door all the way and push up at the hinges. The door should lift off the hinge pins.
1. On the back side of the door (the side that faces the interior of the oven) is a plastic facing around the perimeter of the glass.
2. There should be a series of slots or grooves around the facing that you can place a small screwdriver in.
3. Carefully (I cannot emphasize this enough) lift around the facing until it comes loose. You may not have to remove it all the way around the door. Sometimes you can gain enough access by lifting on the side where the door handle it mounted.
4. Under the door facing are the mounting bolts (or screws). Remove broken handle and install new handle.
5. Reinstall components in the reverse order as stated before.
If you are waiting to order the part for your oven, you can get it at repairclinic.com. The part will be shipped directly do you for a nominal shipping fee.
This should be a fairly simple repair that only takes about 10-15 minutes.
Again, be careful with the door. If you break it, a replacement door costs over $200! Good luck and let me know if I can help further.
