Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

3 Answers

I would like to replace the microwave oven handle.

The bottom of the microwave oven handle has been broken. Probably from every day usuage. It does not show any screws or any visable way to remove the old hande and put a new handle on. Does anyone know how I can do this or is it possible?

    I used some Gorilla Glue. Follow the instruction carefully. This was the best solution for my problem, because I could not replace my microwave handle. It really works.

The inside of the door has a Black Plastic frame about 1 inch wide. This frame can be removed by placing a thin screwdriver between it and the outer door frame and gently (very gently) prying it away from the door. It takes a little wiggling of the frame but it will unlock. On each end of the handle is a philips head screw that holds the handle to the door.

On my GE Spacemaker XL - there is a hard plastic gasket on the inner surface of the door. It pries off easily (and pops back in easily) with a gentle motion of a screwdriver - you will find the lower handle screw under the the gasket. My question is where can you find a replacement handle?

Microwave door handle broken


That's correct the door has to come apart. Just be careful that screen is actually a choke to keep in any microwave radiation. Put everything back exactly as you took it apart.

Good luck

The handle on my maytag microwave oven broke off at the bottom. How do I replace ? Model MMV5165BA


The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.

This is not difficult. 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.

Replacement parts can be found at any of the following sites:

appliancepartspros.com
searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

I hope this helps you.

How to Replace Broken Handle


Sorry but the chat system seems slow and hard to work with.

Page 28 & 29 of the service manual tell you how to remove the door and take it apart to replace the handle.

The service manual is here.

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

Another broken handle


Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.
