How do I take apart the door on a jenn air microwave oven (model #M437W). There are no screws and no obvious way to disassemble the door (the handle broke and before I buy a replacement handle, I want to make sure I don't need any other parts).
This microwave was manufactured in 1992 and discontinued, but I've found replacement parts onlilne.
The model M437 is not listed, but the M438 is, and it should be similar enough to guide you. Just don't count on the part numbers being the same.
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. We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

If the point of damage can be glued together with good bonding and further re-enforcement , it can be strong to withstand pressure. So remove the assembly to try this out before you think there is no way out but to replace with the handle assembly from the service center. The other option is to get one from a scrapped set.
If the model number is correct, the part numbers for a door handle replacement is 56001139 and 56001136. There are two pieces with the door handle on this model oven. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.
If you have any questions, or if your model number is different than the one listed, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
Look at the inside of the door, you will probably find a plastic strip which can be pried out. Underneath the strip, you will find the screws that hold the door together. The screws may be "torx" head.
Take pics of your door with your cell phone as you work and remember, most doors are spring loaded. Watgch your fingers.
Once the door is split open, replacing the handle should be a simple matter.
