When you open the microwave door, on the inside of the door there is a plastic trim around the glass called a choke that is clipped in that needs to be removed to get to the screws for your handle

How to replace the door handle on a whirlpool MH2155XPQ micro wave

The screws that hold on the handle are inside the door assembly. Here is the way its done but its not for the average person. On the inside of the door is a plastic frame all the way around the door. It is held in place by plastic tabs. You have to gently pry off that frame with something like a putty knife or small screw driver. If you are not careful you end up breaking off some of the tabs. Once that frame is off you should have access to the 2 screws holding on the handle. Remove screws---replace handle---and push plastic frame back on.

Handle replacement

The door handle can easily be replaced on most microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:

Need help replacing handle on whirlpool microwave model MH1150XM

Remove two screws on top at front in order to remove plastic front vent grill. Then the door lifts off pin hinges. Lay door flat on surface. Plastic trim snaps off with gentle prying (start at bottom middle and bottom hinge side). Then remove six screws holding notched metal section with door latch. This piece will also snap out (several visible clips holding it around edges). Then remove door handle screws, Replace handle and reverse process to put back together.

Handle screw broken

You have to take the trim off the in side of the door around the glass. Be careful, because the glass could fall out. You should be able to open it with a regular flathead screw driver. There is probably 4 screws holding the handle on. I am pretty sure the only way to get the part is through whirlpool.

Microwave door handle replacement

Solution for GE Spacemaker Ovens (my model is JVM1650BH05)

1- Remove door by lifting it out of hinges. You will need to remove grille first (2 set screws).
2- Carefully pry off the plastic inside door trim. Use a fine knife or putty knife. There are 10 tabs holding the trim from behind. It's OK if you break a tab! Try to pull out as straight as possible.
3- Once the trim is off, remove the 2 visible screws that hold the door handle. NOTE: There are 2 invisible screws so you are not done yet!
4- You now need to remove the metal ring that holds the latches. To do that, grab the metal ring and using your other hand, release each plastic tab one by one (same tabs as above).
5- Once the metal ring is loose, you will see 2 screws. Remove them if they are still there.
6- Position your new handle and attach using the first 2 screws.
7- Reposition the metal ring by re-snapping it in place. Install the other 2 screws.
8- Replace the plastic trim by snapping it back in place
9- Reinstall door and grille. Tell wife or hubby that you are a genius!

Bonus: use metal washers when screwing down the 2 first screws.

The door part# is 4359542 if you need the part number. If you need to know how to replace the door check up by the upper hinge on the inside of the door should be a plastic piece that you can remove so if you lift the door off of its hinges. You may or may not need to remove the grill above the door to raise the door high enough

Bottom screw on handle loose

All my micros had the screw go through the handle into the need to take door apart, just screw it back in. Why would you need to take the door apart?
