Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens

Open Question

Does anyone make just the replacement outer door panel for the Whirlpool Microwave Model MH1150XMB-2?

The panel on our microwave has broken on the inner edge at the seal. Whirlpool and 2 online appliance part sites say that the exterior plastic panel cover is not available as a separate part, but that I have to replace the entire door assembly--Cost would be about $250. I've seen a part--#8185234--that looks like the exact size and appearance of the panel on our door for about $95, but these sites say it won't work. Any help is appreciated.

SOURCE: Inner 'glass' of door

The inner glass can and should be replaced. It protects the metal mesh screen from getting dirty, which can cause it to be damaged and allow microwave leakage.

You shoul take off the hole door, use something like a flat screw driver and wedge the plate off.

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.

It's important that high-current devices like microwaves be on their own dedicated breaker.

I would suspect the 20A fuse and then the oven cavity thermostats, in that order.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At
our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Accessing some components (such as the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

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.

I just installed a new MH1150XMB and the door is cloudy lookinh. There is a plastic film over the inside of the door, does this need to be removed?


Normally, no. That protects the metal mesh which blocks microwave energy from getting out the door.

Check your owner's manual.

If you do need to replace that clear cover, or any other door parts, etc., you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Door open button is broken, door will not open


door button mechanism is all behind the control panel.
there should be a couple screws holding the control panel on, you can see them when you open the door i believe.
you probably need to slide it one way or another to get it to unhook from its hidden catches..
there is the outer button you press with your hand thats available in 3 colors depending on your model #, and then the inner latch..
it will need to be checked to verify which parts are broken..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Broken door on my Emerson microwave (MW8985W)


You can order the outer panel. Its available at searspartsdirect.com for about $41. Just type in your model number and look under the "Door Assy" heading. To replace, just follow these steps:

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. Remove the door handle and any screws that may be holding the outer panel in place. Some panels are simply snapped in place.

Remove the broken panel and install the new one. Re-install the door handle and 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
