Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.
On some models, the handle may rotate into and unlocked position then lift out.

SOURCE: broken handle
Almost all microwave ovens manufacturers locate the handle mounting screws behind the inner black plastic frame known as the 'choke'. If done very carefully, the choke can be removed with a putty knife without breaking it. My suggestion would be to order a handle and a choke. HOWEVER ordering a complete door will be less aggravation and not a lot more money. The handle and choke will cost around $120.00 whereas a complete door goes for around $130.00.

SOURCE: Microwave broken door handle.
To replace MOST microwave oven door handles all you have to do is open the door and remove the inner plastic panel around the glass. This is accomplished by taking a small screwdriver and carefully inserting it along the perimeter to pop it loose (there are usually some grooves you can insert the screwdriver in).
NOTE: DO NOT pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and has an RF shield that protects the consumer from the microwaves being generated by the magnetron. Breaking it, requires a new door replacement.
With the panel removed, you will be able to access the screws that hold the handle in place. Once the new handle is in place, carefully reinsert the inner plastic panel by snapping it back in place all the way around the perimeter of the door glass.
If you have questions, or if your door is configured differently, please let me know. If you have the ability to send photos, that helps too. A model number may also be useful so I can identify how your door is assembled. I hope this helps you,

The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.
This is not difficult. To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also 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.
Replacement parts can be found at any of the following sites:
I hope this helps you.
