Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Kenmore Microwave Oven Serial # 60507693 Model# 721 89940490

The door handle has broken off. Can I glue the handle back on? If I can, how do you get the door off the oven to lay it flat to attach the handle with the glue and let the glue set and harden? If I cannot glue the handle on, again how do I get the door off and how do I attach a new handle? It appears the face of the door must come off in order to attach a new handle and take the old handle part out of the oven door? Thanks for your help.

I have a Kenmore microwave, model 721.62649200. The Handle to the door just broke off. I can find places online to buy a new handle, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to take the door...


I have a similar unit and I removed the outside of the door by loosening two flat head screws on the narrow where the handle is located. There are several screws yet holding the outside plastic housing too. Once these are removed the plastic door will come off. Then the handle will be accessible.
The same issue started with my oven too and I replaced the original handle with larger screws and using a high quality plastic glue.
This held for a while. The plastic door cover seemed to have changed dimensions during its life and warped. I ordered a new door and it lasted a short while. I then asked for a new door under warranty.
Bottom line they wouldn't sent a new cover but they returned my money. Apparently the doors all had crappy plastic issues. Currently we are using the microwave with out the door front. It still works like new after 10 years though.

Hadle from microwave broke


You will need to remove the handle from the door, remove the inner lining from within the door. now the handle can be taken out and replaced or mended with a super glue if broken( if part is difficult to obtain).
Once the handle is put in place make sure that the inner lining is put back in the correct order.
If the handle comes with the lock then the spring settings also should be reset.

Loose handle.


To access the door screws on MOST microwave ovens, you need to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains:

This can be peroformed with the door in place, or with the door removed. If you have any questions, please post back with your complete model number and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore mirowave # 72162643200 handle is broken


I have the exact same problem and the cost for a tech to replace the door is $80 less than buying a new one. They have to remove the unit from the cabinets and pull off the exterior box to unscrew the door hinge. Mine is only 3 years old. I also bought a new oven range. Never really use it. Decided it was time to use the self cleaning. It did not work. $280 to put a new board in. 4 months later I went to clean it and again it did not work. The f*^ing thing only cost $500. Decided Easy off will have to do. Kenmore s*&ks

As for the door... I very CAREFULLY used super glue/ gel and it did the job!

Kenmore microwave oven handle came off


You will need a new handle, and you can probably find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

We do not recommend removing the door unless it's absolutely necessary.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
