To access the door handle mounting screws, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to simply pry the plastic up and work your way gradually around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens 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.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

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.

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

SOURCE: replacing handle on LG LMV1680WW microwave

I have never replaced a handle on a microwave. I was looking at mine. If I have to guess how to get to the screw behind the panel, I would guess the inside cover needs to be popped out. Now a day, all the covers are snapped together. Be careful not to break it.
Or look for your manual, or look it up on the web.
Good luck

Hi,

A common Guide that would help you :-

http://www.applianceaid.com/oven-hinges.html

Generic Procedure on most of the Ovens :-

Set the door on the ground with the hinges facing up. You will need to push down on the hinges and extend them by hand. It's probably best to put something in the palm of your hand like a handle of a screwdriver so that you can push on the hinge and open it up (you will still have to push hard). When you open the hinge up you will see a tiny hole appear about the size of a pin head. You will need to stick a screw or something inside this hole so that the hing will not close again. When you have both hinges locked out you can then reinstall your door at about a 45 degree angle. Open the door up all the way and remove the screws or pins you placed through the door and then you can shut the door all the way again.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I need to change the interior light bulb in my Frigidaire over the counter microwave. The model # is FMV156DCA.


Good Morning Evelyn, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help replace the light bulb on your Frigidaire microwave, FMV156DCA.

    ·First, disconnect power to your microwave. This can be done by either unplugging it or at the circuit breaker panel.
    ·To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover (light cover may become very hot, do not touch glass when light is on).
    ·Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent watt bulb available from parts distributor or the manufacturer directly. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. Bulbs larger than 30 watts are NOT recommended.
    ·Close light cover and secure with screw removed in step 2.

    I hope this information proves to be helpful. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

E30so75fps loose handle


Amanda,
You need to carefully try to remove the plastic frame around the outside edge of the inside of the door and hopefully that should expose the screws that you need to tighten for the handle. I say carefully because that frame can be very expensive to replace if you break it. It is currently listing on Sears site for $95!
