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.

Help fixing a kitchenaid microwave oven/hood combo door handle


The door handles on most appliances, like outside cars & truck handles, are secured with screws from inside the door.
You will need to take the door completely apart to tighten the screws. This may be a very hard job, as it needs to be reassembled as well. God bless your efforts.

How do i fix a broken microwave handle on a kitchen aid? model# KHMS155LSS0


Your handle can be purchased from Sears at the link below, part number 7 depending on your color and finish A - C for $36.18. You can also view the schematic for the door and based on the picture, you can see how to disassemble the door by removing screw (Part Number 8).

My handle door is broken.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. There are 4 different doors for this microwave see this link:

http://specsserver.com/CACHE/FRJVHRUTDMYQ.PDF

Item 58 is the door handle

Part numbers are:

5304440323 - - - - Handle, door, black

5304440325 - - - - Handle, door, bisque
5304440324 - - - - Handle, door, white
Stainless handle not listed.. I assume it is a black handle

This has to be one of the more expensive microwave door handles I have ever experienced.

The least expensive source I found was at sears parts direct.
5304440324 Handle door white Price $88.80
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/5304440324/0022/628?pathTaken=partSearch&filterPart=&pop=flush

5304440323 Handle door black Price $98.97
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/5304440323/0022/628?pathTaken=partSearch&filterPart=&pop=flush

5304440325 Handle door bisque Price $88.80
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/5304440325/0022/628?pathTaken=partSearch&filterPart=&pop=flush

Note that Item 51 of the first link (top one) is the complete door assy. Also Item 60 is the door HANDLE screws (2 ea)

Just from looking at the diagrams in the first link, it appears item 56
Frame, choke cover, inner door
must be removed to gain access to the handle screws.

I looked up many sources for the handle assembly because I had a hard time believeing the handle was so expensive. Sears was by far the cheapest source.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

The door handle on my microwave broke off at bottom of the door. The screws holding the handle on are not visible from the back of the door. How do I access the screws to replace the handle. GE Profile...


The back of the door will have a moulded surround that will be fixed with allen heads or small screws. Remove the inside cover of the door and you will see the holes for the handle.

Need microwave help, broken handle and more..


I doubt that just tightening those screws would have caused this problem, but if so, I would loosen them a quarter turn first.

Instead, my bet is there is now an issue with the door switches or mounts.

To replace the door handle properly, 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.


Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

The door handle is broken on model khms 105ebl0 kitchenaid


The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.

To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

This repair can be done with the door in place, or you can remove it for easier access. If you decide the remove the door, simply open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Some doors have a small hinge pin that has to be removed in order to remove the door.

How to replace handle on GE Advantium SCA1001DSS.

Remove two screws on top at front in order to remove plastic front vent grill. Then the door lifts off pin hinges. Lay door flat on surface. Plastic trim snaps off with gentle prying (start at bottom middle and bottom hinge side). Then remove six screws holding notched metal section with door latch. This piece will also snap out (several visible clips holding it around edges). Then remove door handle screws, Replace handle and reverse process to put back together.

Broken Handle


On almost any microwave oven door if you open the door,on the inside part of the door,theres a square plate thats plastic that is a one piece unit that goes all the way around the edge of the door . That held on by little plastic clips that are molded right on the suround and easy to break, so take a small screw driver(of course the ovens unplugged by now) and start at one end and start prying it out inch by inch. Being care full not to crack it. If yop do crack it, you must replace it, but its not that expensive. Once you have off the cover surround, you will see the screws that hold on the handle. If you need help getting the part go to http://www.repairclinic.com as even if its not listed get the phone # and call them and they will assist you. Good Luck
