KitchenAid KERC506HWH2 Oven Door HANDLE Loose

The oven door HANDLE has come loose on the left side of the handle. A screw is hanging out from behind the vent piece, however I don't see how to remove the vent piece to get to the back of the screws. I don't won't to remove the door if I don't have too. Any suggestions? I need specific instructions regarding this model on how to solve this problem. Thanks, Ed

    The suggestion to use glue to hold the handle on must be a joke. I'm looking for a real expert on appliance/oven repair who can really solve my problem. Please don't suggest duct tape as the next solution.

  • edtrain Feb 18, 2009

    Thanks for the ideas to repair my "microwave" oven, but I'm not inquiring about a "microwave" oven. Plus, the "picture help" link doesn't work. I'm not impressed so far with the help here.

  • edtrain Feb 18, 2009

    That's it. Now someone says that I'll have to "do it the hard way". OK, what does that mean? How is that done?
    Please refund my investment in FixYa help. I've been advised to use glue, then advised as how to solve a problem with a microwave, which is not what I'm inquiring about.

click this link and check out the troubleshooting of the unit.
Yes, you are going to need to take the door off and partially disassemble the door to get to the screw to tighten it.

Remove the door from the oven as described in the Owner manual(page 25). Put the door on a flat surface with the door handle down. Remove the screws holding the door liner. Remove the door liner to access the door handle screws.

Here are the break down diagrams for the Whirlpool range Model RF315PXDN0

    You have to pry out just the bottom of the door's inside panel, being careful NOT to break the plastic. 


    Circular trim pops-out and you can slide the glass sections apart (important) so that you can then access the 2 screws that will re-attach the outside door handle.





    Please rate the solution as "FixYa" if found useful.

The door must come off.

The outer skin and inner shell must be separated to gain access to the handle screws.

Removing the door is the only option, as the door requires disassembly.

Please see the diagram below.

You are going to have to do it the hard way - there is no tricks or short cuts on this one

    You said that you didn't want to have to remove the door; unfortunately, that is the only way to get behind the vent piece (i.e. the hard way). There is no easier way.

There is a inner door trim on the inside of the microwave door that can come off to expose the screws for the handle. This trim is held in place by clips built into the trim, ( some older models may also have screws - look for them and remove before going any further ) the tabs on this trim can break easily but with a putty knife and some patience, the trim can be removed to get at the handle screws. Seepicture help. This trim can be pushed so the clips will "pop" back into place after the handle repair.

For fast solution better use an epoxy that can still hold the handle

    well this was the easiest way, and according from your post the things the you dont want to reassemble or took apart the door..

    but you must remove the door to correct this problem, reassemble it to get into the screw of the handle.

Replece glass oven door kitchenaid kebs278dss8


Oven doors have at least two panes of glass (air gap between so little ones touching outer glass do not get burned). You remove the screws around edges of door (top, sides, & bottom) and lift frame up and forward to get outer face off. The glass in ovens is tempered to take heat so you can not just use regular glass. You will find outer piece is sometimes the entire size of door but is painted black with the "dot" pattern that lines up with inner piece. Once you get face / frame off you will usually find the handle screws and mounts for inner glass. Sometimes inner glass sealed with high temp sealant. But make sure you use correct glass or someone could get hurt.

The handle has fallen off my stainless steel kitchenaid superba oven and screws go from inside edge toward front. Can't tell how to access without removing frame and that's another question!


Yes the door has to be disassembled to repair the handle. In some cases you can just loosen the sides and top and work with it on your lap without removing from the unit but it takes patience and an extra set of hands is nice to have around. Any visible screws have to come out first. Eric

The door handle of my oven whirlpool gold model no GGP84803 is loose I try to get it off by prying it from the top with no luck seem to be jam or locked I am not sure how to proceed.


I had same problem, fixed by removing screws under door and removing side panels . Then remove front glass ( 4 screws under glass ) and remove other screws behind glass to remove handle and then tighten 4 screws on handle. Works great.

To dismantle the kitchenaid pro line oven door: there is a lever over the hinges that attach a door to the oven. The lever is right on top of the hinge. Pull the lever up. When that lever is in the up position, you can pull the door out.
