You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

You should be able to replace just the affected door panel and save money as well as the hassle of complicated door alignment and leakage tests.

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 to replace the door handle on a whirlpool MH2155XPQ micro wave


The screws that hold on the handle are inside the door assembly. Here is the way its done but its not for the average person. On the inside of the door is a plastic frame all the way around the door. It is held in place by plastic tabs. You have to gently pry off that frame with something like a putty knife or small screw driver. If you are not careful you end up breaking off some of the tabs. Once that frame is off you should have access to the 2 screws holding on the handle. Remove screws---replace handle---and push plastic frame back on.

When micro wave oven is in use, I can feel air coming from the door. is it leaking micro waves?


Not likely if the door seals are intact, clean, and the door is latched. The pin-holed screen that you can see through stops the microwave energy. Hope this helps!

mcdevito75, You may have to replace the entire circut board containing all the micro wave ovens controls. Look for an small appliance repair shop in your area, or any place that sells microwave ovens for help.

How to replace the door handle on a mod. MH 1170XSY-0 mico wave


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.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Jenn-Air micro-wave oven serial number #JMV8208AAS


This is the door latch, and replacing it is not a bad job for a do-it-yourselfer, in case you or someone you know may want to do it.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see how you can replace the broken door latch. (Don't lose the spring!)

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

If you don't want to do it yourself, you can find your nearest Jenn-Air / Maytag-authorized servicer here.

They generally charge about $75 to visit the home, $75-90 to do the repair work, and the part may run about $15 or so. If nothing else, you can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself.

I'd suggest a helper for that task, and you can download installation instructions here.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a loose or misaligned door hinge.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
