SOURCE: Microwave door has burn spots on the glass of the door...

The brown spots are usually grease / smoke deposits. Usually there are indeed two sheets of glass in the door. If the grease is not arcing or smoking, and the metal screen / mesh (that blocks microwave leakage) is not damaged, then it's likely better left alone. It might be useful to boil a few cups of water with a little vinegar inside the microwave to help dissolve the deposits. In case you want to take it apart, I have attached a photo from a similar model that illustrates disassembly of the door. It is not necessary or advisable to remove the door or hinges when disassembling the door.

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) here that demonstrates how it's done.

My Siemens HF759 (Stainless steel) front has come away from the glass and is only hanging via the top of the glass by the handle. How do I put it back?


You can remove the front glass and trim by removing the two torx screws at the top of the door, they are the ones next to the prongs that stickup from the door when open. Once these are removed the door front lifts up as the bottom is only hooked on. It looks like you need to remove more screws but you don't. A two person job as the door needs to be held in the nearly closed position as you lift off the front. Once you have the door off remove the two screws holding the handle on and it is then just the glue holding the trim on which in your case and mine has failed. I googled for oven door glue and found a very good site which has excellent instructions and video for application. The biggest hassle was cleaning off the old glue (scraper and acetone) and making sure it was aligned correctly before gluing, I used masking tape for a few dry runs as you only get one chance with the glue and it goes off quickly. Hope this helps.

Replacing or tightening the door handle is a repair that any Do-It-Yourselfer should be able to accomplish. The door handle can easily be replaced on MOST microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:


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


The average cost for a replacement handle (if required) usually runs about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.


The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or with the door removed. You do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.


NOTE: If you wish to remove the door, all you need to do on most models is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges.


If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

My samsung SMH7187STG microwave handle broke off.


You can order new "cap handles" (the plastic parts that join the aluminum handle to the door for 3.99 each plus 8.99 shipping and handling at the Sears Parts Direct Website. The part number is DE67-00222C. When you have the parts in hand, open the microwave oven door. On the inside surface of the door their is a black plastic frame around the door that pops off easily (gently use a screw driver to pry up the door frame) so that you can have access to the screws that attach the end caps to the door. You will need to hold the remant of the cap handle (the part that is probably broken off even with the glass surface on the outside side of the door) still while you unscrew the screws. Once the screws and broken remnant of the handle caps are out, you are ready to put new handle caps on the handle, then put the handle with the new handle caps on the door. By the way, Samsung was absolutely NO help with this. The agent I chatted with denied that their were any reports of the handles breaking off, so I had to cut and past the postings about the door handle breaking off ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE under "Community Q and A" into the chat box -- still the agent did not acknowldege the existance of these reports...or the possibility of a poor design. I asked for them to send me a couple of the $4 parts as a good will gesture....got nothing but lofty words about Samsung commitment etc. and only a authorized technition blah blah, no action. All you need is a strong thumbnail, a phillips head screw driver, new handle caps.

Replacing a broken handle on GE microwave model JVM1660SB 005. I can't get at all the screws on the old handle.


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, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If you need a diagram, pcappplaincerepair.com has some excellent exploded view illustrations you can refer to for assistance. If you haven't purchased a new door handle yet, the part number is WB15X10022.

Broken door handle, have part but can't put it on.


Thats disgusting mate! The doors are either clip together, plastics or if stainless as per photo, it would require opening the case, removal of door then prising off the fascia trim to get to the handles.

I'd ring them back up, that is not a user servicable part as it will bugger the finish trying to separate the doort.

Best of luck

New Handle for Maxim 3 oven


Hi All -- I just spoke to a very helpful Maxim/Salton customer representative (1-800-231-9786 is the US #), and the glass door for the Maxim OV-300 is considered a "non-stock" part. This means that it's not in stock, but it is (hopefully ;) possible for the company to order it from their manufacturer in China, though it could "take months." I was able to place an order for the door for $20.90 USD including shipping to Los Angeles. Hopefully if others place orders, they'll really re-make some of these parts! Good luck, Penny
