Question about Microwave Ovens
I am still waiting for you feed back with the drawings.
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.

I followed all of FreddyNM's directions to replace the handle. They worked great! The only suggestion that I would make is to intall the door before you snap the metal ring back on. We had alot of trouble trying to squeeze the door back onto the hinges. It's a very tight squeeze. We ultimately gave up, unsnapped the metal ring and then installed the door. Much, much easier.

I have a Whirlpool MH7155MB0. The door handle was broken. I ordered a new handle on line. Then I removed the three screws at the handle end of the door. I used seveal screwdrivers to pry between the outer fram and the inner frame. I pried near the handle end and eventually the two halves separated near the handle end. The frames are held together and the door hinge end by interlocking plastic parts (so be sure to pry at the handle end). The handle was held on the door simply by two screws that could be removed from the inside once I got the door separated. Hope this helps.
