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.

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

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 you replace the door handle? I need to know how to get to the screws. Does the door come apart or do I have to get the handle to come apart?


mcdevito75 here, This may involve a special procudure, not to mention tools and maybe a special adjustment to keep Microwaves from leaking into your home. BEST BET, look for an appliance repair shop in your area.

Door handle replacement


You remove door latch (nr 3 on diagram) first, then you unscrew the screw nr .8 and remove handle (nr.7).

There are indeed two springs that "cross" each other, and they must be both be replaced to ensure full strength.

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.

Bottom screw on handle loose


All my micros had the screw go through the handle into the micro...no need to take door apart, just screw it back in. Why would you need to take the door apart?
