One solution is to drill through the entire handle, then put a thin bolt (dark-colored) all the way through the handle, then secure it with a nut on the inside.  This will take the straing off the door and should last a very long time.
It's not excuse for this very poorly-designed handle that apparently breaks quite a bit (many people report multiple breaks over many years with multiple HE models, see here), but this will secure it and should prevent future breaks and expensive hande replacements.

Best to get a new handle, if you happen to have an accident, you really dont want the handle falling of as you need to get out. Try the auto dismantlers if a new one is too expensive

If the door fell off the track then either the track is broken or mis-aligned. Don't use glue or tape, find out what caused the door to fall off in the first place and correct it.

Your parts store should have a diagram of the door and can tell you where the screws and pins are, othewise you can just pull out all the visible screws (including the one on the door handle) and the other things holding the door on are plastic push fittings. To take these out you just have to find the fittings and pry at them with a wonderbar.

The parts store can also sell you a new track/motor/etc.

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside


Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.

Broken door handle


Hi, there should be two screws holding the handle. I looked up my suppliers and this would need to be ordered. The cost is between 21 and 29 dollars, depending on color.
Part#8559750 Graphite color or P#8559751 Black
If I can assist you further, please let me know. I can order the part.

Thanks

Broken handle


1) Have to remove the door first; top of the oven there are two screws closest to the door, take those out. and the door should lift out
2) flip the door on the table with the handle side down. starting on the handle side there are three clips (top, middle, and bottom) between the outside casing and inside trim. Using a thin screwdriver gently twist starting at either the top or bottom to pod the two casings apart. work your way around the door.
3) You should see one of the screws that hold the handle on (top) but the bottom screw is under the metal casing so you need to remove the screws around this casing as well to get the other handle screw off.
Once you start you will see it isn't as bad as this sounds. I bought the handle for $40.
It is a shame that this is so cheap and breaks off this easily. Surprisingly we have had ours for at least 6 years before the handle broke and we have 3 girls opening and closing this all the time so I guess I was one of the lucky ones.
Hope this helps and good luck
