Murray...after a DJ here in NY from the '60's!

First, why is the handle falling off? Is it loose or damaged? Most of these handles are only plastic with holes tapped in. If the holes are damaged and you can't fix them, you will have to replace. Most handles are through bolted in the door. You should be able to access those screws from the inside of the door. If not....

How do take a door apart: First locate any screws in the bottom of the door. Remove them. Open the door and remove screws from the sides and inside of door. Get help supporting the outside of the door and note that it will snap shut when you remove any weight from the door. Caution, most door glass is not well clipped may come loose!!!! You may want to take pictures of the inside of the door once you open it. Once the door is apart, locate any fasteners holding the handle and attempt to tighten them. If not successful, you'll need that new handle. Get an extra set of hands to help with removal and reinstallation of that door skin. You'll need 'em!

Help fixing a kitchenaid microwave oven/hood combo door handle

The door handles on most appliances, like outside cars & truck handles, are secured with screws from inside the door.
You will need to take the door completely apart to tighten the screws. This may be a very hard job, as it needs to be reassembled as well. God bless your efforts.

Hot microwave door handle

I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

Falls open when? This unit wom't operate unless the door is secure so I assume you mean the door assist springs are disconnected or broken and the door just falls heavily to the open position after you unlatch it from the closed position. Try these, part 18 here

should attach to frame in an easy to distinguish hole or slot and to door hinges, number 2 here

How do you replace the door handle? I need to know how to get to the screws. Does the door come apart or do I have to get the handle to come apart?

mcdevito75 here, This may involve a special procudure, not to mention tools and maybe a special adjustment to keep Microwaves from leaking into your home. BEST BET, look for an appliance repair shop in your area.
