I have a Kitchenaid microwave oven (Model KHHS179L, S/N TRR2312095)

Resolved Question:

I have a Kitchenaid microwave oven (Model KHHS179L, S/N TRR2312095) and the door handle has broken off. The plastic screw holes have just broken leaving the two screws protruding from the door. The repair company is saying that I have to replace the entire door, which has no damage other than the missing handle. I called Kitchenaid and they said that the door handle is sold as a separate item. Doesn't this imply that it can be replaced?

Thanks Bryan!

This has kept me from being ripped off by this repair company. I think I'll send the youtube video to the repairman who said that I needed a new door.
