The door handle can easily be replaced on most microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and/or replace the door handle:

The average cost for a replacement handle usually averages about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided. However, price and configuration of your oven also depends upon the MODEL NUMBER.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete model number (if different than the one listed) and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hi, how do you change the door handle on this microwave? I have a new handle.. but cant see how to open the casing

Inside the microwave door between the glass and the edge is a plastic insert called a choke. This snaps into place and needs to be removed to expose the handle screws. Microwave repairs are not for the do it your self person. They should be made by a qualified service technician so the unit can be leak check after making any repair.

Trying to change the handle

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) that demonstrates how it's done.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

You can order the door handle here, but it may be on backorder.

You'll have to check back or contact them directly about backordering it for you.

Need to Replace Door Handle for KitchenAid Over Range Microwave Hood Combo KHMS147KSS

Check out this door frame diagram, specifically number 1805. It clips on to the door frame. Remove it using a dull table knife or something similar (be careful not to scratch or break anything). You will then have access to the bottom screw.

Have some handles fabricated locally. They wont look like the original but will surely last longer.
