• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

KitchenAid Microwave KMHC319ESS0 door disassembly?

hey folks. my wife somehow broke the handle off the microwave door. the handle is metal and completely intact but the plastic inside the door to which it attaches either needs replaced or rigged. in order to do this, I want to disassemble as little of the door as possible, but I can't find a copy of the tech sheet W10644755 or any other reference about how to disassemble the door. Any advice appreciated. Thanks!

Here's a link to the plastic bracket I want to remove: https://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Support-Bracket/W10478656/3020668
* Looks like there are some screws on the left to remove this piece

Here's a blow-up of the door components (it's part #10 I'm trying to remove):
