Due to an accident prone houseguest my microwave door no longer has a handle.  :yikes:

It would appear to be an easy repair if the door could be taken apart.  There are any visible screws.  Do they snap together or is there a secret to get them apart?  I didn't want to start prying and break something else.

Any information is appreciated.  Thanks

Most Microwave door handles come off by removing the choke or inner door trim. If you open your microwave door you have two spring loaded latches that look like hooks. They come out of the door via rectangular holes cut in the plastic trim piece. If you look at the piece they actually come through, you will see it is really about a 1 1/2" wide rectangular trim that goes around the complete door like an insert. It is held into place by clips on the other side. You want to carefully pry out the insert to expose the screws holding the handle. I usually start around the holes that the latches come through with a small screw driver prying it out. Go slowly because you can break it. If your looking at the door like a large rectangle, I usually pry it out up the complete left side, they about 6-8" on the top and bottom from left to right looking at it. This gives you enough room to access the two screws holding your handle on. You can order the handle by clicking the BLUE link above.
