Plmv169dcd handle fell OFF

Hi I have this model plmv169dcd and the handle fell off. I can't seem to figure out how to get it back on. The screws are inside the door. How do I get the door off and get the front panel of the door so I can get the screws out.

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.

If you need more help with disassembly, we have similar service manuals and have uploaded them to our site here, here, and here to help you.

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.

Hi, I have a door handle screw that fell out. However, I'm unsure how to remove the front panel to put the screw back in. I have a fridigare glcs376aba.


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

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

In some cases, you then have to gently rotate the handle to unlock or lock it.

How do I get to the control panel of my Frigidaire PLMV169DCD?


When you open the microwave door, on the right side should be two philips head screws. Unscrew those to remove plastic cover and there will be control panel behind which is secured with 4 screws.

You most likely had a power surge and blew a fuse. First unplug the unit,then remove the top grill. There will either be one screw on top of the control pad or 2 on the left side. open the control panel and look for a fuse that has a ceramic center and replace it with a 20 amp one. You can find these at the hardware store

PLMV169 Door Handle


You can find an exploded view for model PLM168 (it's probably very similar) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 It looks like you'd have to gently pry out the choke cover (see attached photo) then you'll see the screws. When you reinstall the door handle screws, add a bit of thread locker or nail polish to secure them.
