    My handle also broke loose and the posted solution is no help to me. I don't see how to remove the door latches.

    I have the same problem, diagram featured is no help. What does removing the latches have to do with the door, when the latches are on the micro body and the handle has no access to remove screws.

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

I have a Kenmore microwave, model 721.62649200. The Handle to the door just broke off. I can find places online to buy a new handle, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to take the door...


I have a similar unit and I removed the outside of the door by loosening two flat head screws on the narrow where the handle is located. There are several screws yet holding the outside plastic housing too. Once these are removed the plastic door will come off. Then the handle will be accessible.
The same issue started with my oven too and I replaced the original handle with larger screws and using a high quality plastic glue.
This held for a while. The plastic door cover seemed to have changed dimensions during its life and warped. I ordered a new door and it lasted a short while. I then asked for a new door under warranty.
Bottom line they wouldn't sent a new cover but they returned my money. Apparently the doors all had crappy plastic issues. Currently we are using the microwave with out the door front. It still works like new after 10 years though.

I am trying to replace the door handle. How to I


On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement

If the model number is correct, and you haven't purchased a replacement handle yet, the part numbers are WB15X10119 and WB15X10120. There are two pieces with the door handle on this model oven. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different than the one listed, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

How to install WB15X10022 GE Microwave Handle.


This is a generic answer

Open the door and look carefully for a plactic strip that may be covering screws. If none. look on the bottom edge or the edge with the hinge. Remember, someone had to assemble the door so there has to be some way to disassemble it. I have never seen one that can not be opened (glued, cemented or welded closed) Remember, most doors are spring loaded and may snap shut on you with the door partially removed. Also, keep in mind the process you went through to get it apart. You will have to reverse that process. You may want to take pics with your cell phone as you progress.

Once open (and you may need a 'Torx' tool to remove the screws), replacing the handle should be simple.

Let me know how you make out.

How do I replace handle on door of GH7208xrbo. I have the new replacement handle already. Do I have to take door off or can I just take side panels off and then undo screws and etc. If I have to take door...


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

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.

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, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Need to replace handle on GE Spacesaver Microwave J VM130K 004.


I looked up the $39.99 part ! (almost as much as a new microwave)
If you want to replace the handle, get the new handle and see how the new handle goes on and you can determine how to take off the old handle.

Door Handle Broken 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.

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

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Getting door frame apart to install new handle


If you're replacing the handle, then order the choke cover..It's the piece on the inside of the door that covers the handle screws. No matter how carefull you are, it is almost guaranteed to break. If you break it, then you have one, and if not, send it back. DO NOT OPERATE MICRO WITHOUT CHOKE COVER.
