SOURCE: Broken Handle
Our GE microwave's handle broke at the lower end. We carefully applied "Gorilla" brand glue to reattach that end, and the handle has been intact for more than a year now. The glue is only visible up close, and the hairline crack is difficult to see.

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.

Apparently the part number for the black handle is WB15X10020 and the white one is WB15X335.
You can order either and find find helpful exploded view diagrams here.
Enter the part number to order the part, and enter your model number to find the exploded views.
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Actually the door handle CAN be replaced at a cost much less than pruchasing an entire new microwave oven. And, YOU can repair this yourself and save the cost of a service call. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:
If the model number is correct, the part number is WB15X322. The cost is about $40. 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
