Instructions for replacing door handle on JVM1350BW02 Microwave
I have a GE Space Saver, Over-the-range, microwave, model number JVM1350BW-002 that has a broken door handle that needs to be replaced. I can see how to detach/attach the top of the handle, but not the bottom. I am afraid to order the part unless I am sure that I can replace it. Could you pleas tell me how to do this or show me where to get instructions to do this? Thanks.

Determining the cubic feet of any given appliance, Microwave, Oven, Freezer or Refrigerator is quite simple.
Follow these steps.
Open the door of your microwave and measure the length, width and height in inches of the interior cavity.
Multiply the length by the width by the height using a calculator to get the total in cubic inches.
Divide the cubic inches by 1,728, which is the volume of a cubic foot. The resulting number will be your microwave's measurement in cubic feet. You can also use an online conversion calculator to simplify matters
The inner plastic ring has to be removed. That WIDE ring is called the choke. Use a flat bladed screwdriver and a knife blade to get it free. It has tabs on the inner side and the outside that have to be unlatched. Once the choke ring is free you will have access to the screws.
Actually the door handle CAN be replaced at a cost much less than pruchasing an entire new microwave oven. And, YOU can repair this yourself and save the cost of a service call. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:
The handle part number is WB15X335 and is available from a number of sources online. You can replace the handle alone, but you need to take the inside door panel off to get at the screws. It's been too long since I've worked on a GE to remember if you need any special tools (some ovens have security screws holding things together).
This is usually a bad door swithc or loose or broken door switch mount.
