Question about Whirlpool MH8150XM 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

Broken handle -- Whirlpool MH8150XMQ

The handle attached to the door of the microwave oven is completely broken. It is attached to the door at two points, and has come off of both the points; the handle won't even go back inside properly, or I would have trird to glue it.

Further, the hadle itself is made of two parts, which got detatched from each other.

I called Whirlpool and they offered no assistance at all -- just gave me the number to local parts distributor and a third party service center. The parts shop says that the handle will cost about $50, but the have no instructions for installing it. I have not yet called the service center, and not sure how muach they will charge for the repair.

Any suggestions for fixing this at home?

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.

Mmi have a ge advantiun x20 model SCA1001FSS01 THE HNDLE IS BROKEN OFF HOW DO i REPLACE THIS pafife@yahoo.com


HELLO.

THE SOLUTION ON HOW TO REPLACE THE BROKEN HANDLE

THINGS NEEDED.

Phillips screwdriver.
Thin, flat-head screwdriver.
Putty knife.
Replacement microwave door handle.

1 Examine the inside of the door. The handles of some early GE Spacemaker microwave models were attached after the two inner door panels were assembled to the outer door. If you see two recessed screws opposite the handle attaching points, undo them with a Phillips screwdriver and remove the handle. If not, go to the next step.

2 Insert the blade of a thin, flat-head screwdriver into the top, outer corner of the door, between the plastic inner frame and the outer door. Gently pry the inner frame out and slip a putty knife into the exposed opening on top of the door. Slide the putty knife toward the hinges to free the top of the inner frame; repeat on the front and bottom edges of the door and lift the inner frame out to expose a second metal inner frame.

3 Insert a thin, flat-head screwdriver into each of the small square openings on the top and bottom of the inner metal frame, starting at the handle end of the door. Undo the attaching clips by gently levering the inner door away, using the rim of the outer door as a fulcrum. Move the inner door away from the outer door on its hinges.

4 Remove the glass from the outer door. Undo the two screws holding the handle to the outer door with a Phillips screwdriver. Screw the replacement handle onto the door and tighten securely.

5 Replace the glass panel and reassemble the door by snapping the two inner frames back in place.

Thanks.

Broken handle


Almost all microwave ovens manufacturers locate the handle mounting screws behind the inner black plastic frame known as the 'choke'. If done very carefully, the choke can be removed with a putty knife without breaking it. My suggestion would be to order a handle and a choke. HOWEVER ordering a complete door will be less aggravation and not a lot more money. The handle and choke will cost around $120.00 whereas a complete door goes for around $130.00. Check out www.searspartsdirect.com for more detail.

Sorry, but I can't be more specific on non-US models.

I recommend that you do not remove the door or hinges to do the job because if it's not aligned exactly, you can have microwave leakage.
