Question about Microwave Ovens
How do you open the back of the door to get to the handle screws?
There is a pin holding the door on upper right hand corner of the door. Holding the door in the open position, lift up on the door a little and remove the pin. The door will come off. There are two screws on the edges of the door on the end where the handle is located. Remove the screws. Now, Take a slim screw driver, and carefully pry between the inside door panel and the ourside door panel starting at the end where the door handle is. Lift the inside of the door out. The opposite end of the inside door panel will come out last. Believe me, this works. Getting it back together is a little bit different, but it snaps back together without using tools. Just put the inside of the door back by laying it down with the handle side down after you have replaced the handle of course. Now, pushing in on the inside of the door panel starting on the handle side, start with lining up the panel and push gently. It will go back into place much much easier than it comes out.

For the Dacor PMOR30S, bthompson is correct on the door removal. If you can't get the door to "remove", there is a small plastic panel inside the door at the top hinge. Just gently pry that loose with a small screwdriver. It will expose the top hinge and you will see how to lift the door out. After the door is removed, you must remove the rectangular plastic panel inside the door. Start at the top hinge and gently pry the panel loose. it makes lots of cracking noise coming out but it is [generally] not breaking. I cracked mine near the top hinge, but it stayed in one piece and it reinstalled easy. Note there are not two screws on the edge of the door as bthompson describes above. But after the rectabgular panel is removed, it exposes the two screws that hold the door handle. Just remove those and all broken plastic debris. Then install your new handle. Be sure to tighten the two screws on the backside of the new handle before you install it (they may already be tight). Also note that the handle can only be installed one way - you can't flip it top to bottom. Tighten the handel screws, gently reinstall the rectangular panel, reinstall the door, reinstall the small panel at the top hinge. You're done.
