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.

SOURCE: Our handle broke on our GE Microwave convection

Here is a link to PartSelect.com, I have used them for my microwave repairs in the past and they usually ship the items fast.

I have put in your Model number, but the closest that I could find was JVM1190BY003. You can look at the picture and determine if the parts look the same and the picture will show you that you will have to take the entire door apart, (You may already know that).

http://www.partselect.com/ModelFrames.aspx?ModelID=386757&ModelNum=JVM1190BY003&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=2&Selected=00110600i01&Position=1&mfg=GE&Type=&Mark=1

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

SOURCE: The door handle on my GE Spacemaker XL model

If the outer door is not broken. All you have to do is replace the handle. You will need to access the door handle mounting screws and remove them to replace the door handle. To access the screws on MOST microwave ovens, you must remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. This can be accomplished by using a small screwdriver or putty knife and carefully insert along the seam of the inner panel and pry the plastic up. Work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass to pop the panel loose. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that shields you from harmful microwaves.

With the inner panel removed, the door handle screws are visibile and can easily be accessed with a screwdriver. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel, gradually working your way around the perimeter of the door glass to ensure it snaps back into place and seats properly.

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, open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. On some microwaves, you may have to remove the upper grill cover over the door (if equipped) to accommodate door removal. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

NOTE: Some doors have a hinge pin that needs to be removed, or screws holding the door in place at the hinge.

You can view an exploded view diagram of your microwave at pcappliancerepair.com for reference. Just type in your model number and locate the parts listing for the door. The part number for the door handle is WB15X10020. If the outer panel is damaged, you may have to replace the entire door. The part number is WB55X991. The cheapest web source I have found the handle listed is appliancepartspros.com for $47. The entire door, however, sells for $110 at pcappliancerepair.com.

The RF inside the cavity of a microwave oven is actually controlled by the RF shield in the glass. As long as the glass is intact and the inner door facing is not bowed, warped or cracked, you will not have to worry about RF leakage (even with the handle broken off).

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

The plastic door handle on our GE Spacemaker XL microwave oven (JVM1341WW 002) broke. I ordered and now have replacement handle and screws onhand. How do I gain access to inside of the door to replace...


I do not know your unit specifically but a lot of them you have to start by, slowly, from the inside of the door, lifting up on the choke that runs along the outer inside edge of the door. It looks like a plastic trim part about 3/4 of an inch wide. You slowly work around the whole door unit you get it popped out. a butter knife or steak knife works pretty well . I just use a small flat head screw driver The screws for the handle are behind that choke seal. Usually 2 Phillips head screws. The choke part just snaps in place and has no screws to put it back, just push back in place and you will hear it snap as you go. Be careful the plastic tabs are easy to break off

Jvm1350ww 002 Handle broken


The handle part number is WB15X335 and is available from a number of sources online. You can replace the handle alone, but you need to take the inside door panel off to get at the screws. It's been too long since I've worked on a GE to remember if you need any special tools (some ovens have security screws holding things together).

Loose door handle


DON'T remove the cover yourself unless you fully undertand the SAFETY issues involved in working inside a microwave oven. A microwave oven is possibly THE MOST DANGEROUS common consumer product to service. Usually with these doors, the latching parts tend to loosen up at times, thus requiring some re-adjustment and tightening. Sometimes they get a bit warn and require to be replaced. The handle by itself about $40, apparently GE doesn't know how to make a door handle that will hold up for more than a year or so. I just bought a new door off of eBay for $20 + $20 shipping ... a deal compared to the $135 + tax and shipping that most of the web sites want! All you need is a phillips screwdriver and a 5/16" socket. To get to 3 screws that anchor the TOP hinge, simply remove the vent grill (open the door and remove the 2 white screws that hold it in place). To get to the 2 screws that anchor the BOTTOM hinge, simply remove the 6 screws that hold the grey bottom pan of the microwave in place. The pan will swivel down, remaining attached in the back panel. Once you've removed the 5 hinge screws, the door should pull pretty much straight out. Reverse the procedure with the new door, which should come with hinges attached. Could be that the place the spring sits in is a little broken, so theres no stop for the spring. open it up and see if there's anything you can do with it, try some epoxy putty maybe. Good luck
