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.

How do I repair the broken handle on my Spacemaker microwave from GE?


you have to remove the trim inside the door. you have to carefully pry the inner trim and kind of twist it as you remove it so you don't break it.
if there is enough of the handle left where the screw goes in(I'm assuming that's where it broke) sometimes you can drill into it a little and put a longer screw on. otherwise you need to buy a new handle.

GE spacemaker microwave does not heat food; fine otherwise.


Most likely the hi volt energy components. Usually the hi volt diode or hi volt capacitor. There is hi energy stores here so be careful or do not attempt it. A person skilled in electronics, tv repair, or microwaves can handle it . It is usually worth repairing. The other parts that could be the problem are the magnatron or the hi volt transformer; if so, you might think twice before repair (the price will be higher).Goodluck, Macgivor
