The handle I am replacing is a plastic handle where the plastic has broken off in pieces. Is the replacement now stainless steel or simply a stainless color?

Have read it is hard to access screws without ruing inner lining/panel. How do I get to the screws safely? Also, to replace the door handle, part 8184264, why would I need to buy new screws? Shouldn't I be able to use the existing screws from the original handle? Thanks.
Answer Hello Mark,
It may not be necessary to change the screws if there is no damage to the screws. To access the screws you will use a flat blade around the inner liner and slowly pop loose. Once loose then you will access the screws but may have to remove the latch to get to them.

White plastic handle falling apart. Please, is there a real stainless steel handle that is square which will fit my microwave?
Answer Lydia, the handle listed for the stainless model is black in color 8169738. This will be made out of the same material as the original handle. The manufacturer does not offer any other handles for your product. Sorry about that!
