Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!
Can you post a picture of the fastener head, please?
Is the top of the screw solid or does it have a star shape in it?
Look like the one at the link below?
Sure, you can break the handle away and then replace the screws. Just be careful you don't enlarge the holes when you remove the handle.
Take care, David, thank you!
