Question about Microwave Ovens
The handle broke off the door of my microwave and the outer frame is cracked. I can get the parts online. Is this an easy repair I can do myself or should I call a professional.
It's really not too hard.
The first piece of advice would be not to remove the door from the oven or tamper with the hinges. The alignment of the hinges is important to prevent microwave leakage, which can lead to burns and damage.
You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.
A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
