Re: Door handle broke off. Can I replace it?

You can get exploded views and parts lists and order parts here: You need to enter your actual model number, such as SCA1000HWW, etc. You will probably need to separate the door panels, so those exploded views can be handy. Feel free to see my site for my safety and disassembly tips.

How to remove door from ge advantium 120 microwave. i broke the handle off the microwave and have another on order. now i find that i have to take the face off to install the new handle.GE

The door handle can easily be replaced on MOST microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:

The average cost for a replacement handle usually runs about $20 - $40. Replacements (if required) may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.
The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or removed. And, you do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.

It would help, however, to know the number of the microwave oven you are referring to. All ovens are not designed the same and are assembled in different ways. What I have provided you with is the basic information that applies to most ovens. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do i replace the door handle on a rca lvm135k 003

You will have to remove and disassemble the door. Look for a rubber or plastic cover that will be hiding the screws. The screws MAY be Torx or "star" requiring a special Torx tool. Torx available where ever fine tools are sold. It might also be #2 Phillips.

Don't try to use an allen key if it is a Torx, you will ruine your key and the head of the screw.

Once you get the door apart, it will be self evident what you must do to replace the handle. Get parts from advertiser, your local appliance parts store or order from

Thanks for your interest in

Handle broke off, model # khhs179Lss-4, wna to

The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.
If you have not purchased a new door handle yet, the part number is 8205431 (White), 8205433 (Black), 8205432 (Biscuit) or 8185456 (Stainless). A new one can be purchased at for about $40-46. Make sure you order using the correct part number to ensure you get the right color.

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.

The door handle on my microwave broke away from the door. Is it

Of course it is.  You can glue it on with gorilla glue, perhaps using a screw shaft (be sure to drill pilot holes) like a dowel in carpentry to secure and add area for the glue to adhere to.  Drill the pilot hole in the handle bit the thread diameter rather than the shaft diameter, so you don't have to screw the handle on once you cut off the screw head.

Neff H7871 inner glass broken

Hi, I am having a same problem I have managed to order theglass from:-

1. Open the door.

2. Take out the 2 screws just behind the handle, on the inside of the door, thedoor should flop down at the handle end.

3. Hold the door handle and pull the door out. It is only housed in by a slipin hooks at the bottom end.

4. Once you remove the door you will see the inner metal mesh and the inner doorbehind it.

5. Remove the 16 screws holding the inner glass with a special star type screwdriver bit no T30.

6. Once you done that the glass housing holding the inner glass can becarefully prised free and taken off the inner door assembly.

7. Once you done that remove and inner glass, and be careful to leave the glassseal intact, clean around the frame housing and the seal then replace the newinner glass and reverse the process.

PS. Be careful of the inner door once you've removed the outer door, asthe hinges holding the inner door tend to shut quickly as there is less weighton the hinges.

It will do the job if you follow these instructions. AL (

Check out this door frame diagram, specifically number 1805. It clips on to the door frame. Remove it using a dull table knife or something similar (be careful not to scratch or break anything). You will then have access to the bottom screw.
