How do you remove outside handle on driver's door on 2012 s60

On a S60, 2012, (drivers door) you first remove the plastic cover in under which you find the lock (with keyhole).
secondly, open the door and remove the 15 mm diameter plastic cover near the handle. Insert a long torx scrwdriver(T25 ?) in the
opening and while keeping the door handle "open" (this gives you the possibility to easily replace the handle later) Turn the torx until it stops
(do not use much force). Now you can pull out the metallic lock, peer
out the small white plastic under the door handle and pull out the handle. Do not turn the torx before you have replaced the handle.

In the case of back door, you start by finding the hole for the torx under the doors rubber sealing near the door handle.

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.

Interior door handle right side

first you need to order a new handle and trim ring, 2 separate pieces. beige or grey are your only choices. cheapest and only one i found that caries beige. i did both front doors for 25 dollars total including shipping. Remove door panel, 2 screws under round plastic caps that pry out and off, 2 screws at bottom, 2 lg screws in middle handle, 1 plastic retainer in side that prys out, 1 screw under square cap in the center of the trim ring. remove black plastic triangle shaped piece near the mirror, prys off easy. grab door panel and pull out then lift up. leave wires attached and let panel hang loose. remove screw from old door handle. remove linkage from handle and from lock. connect linkages to new handle and lock (look carefully at the old one before you remove the linkages) , install the last screw you removed to hold lock in place while you check to if everything works. when i finished mine neither door would open from the inside. i had to take pliers and slightly bend the linkage at the elbo's to shorten the travel distance. check this before you put everything back together by just putting the door panel back in place down fist then in, window down, close door, reach in and open door, if it doesn't open bend linkage and try again. when you are sure everything is ok install all screws except the one that was under the square plastic cap in the trim ring. to install trim ring look for notch on back side toward front of ring, push ring in notch end fist, back end slightly out, when the front end is in and seated push the back end straight in. install screw and push cap in. this job is not as hard as it sounds and will make sense when have the panel off and can see.

How to remove freezer door handle

There should be one or more hex shaped keys within the door handle, usually on the side or bottom of the handle. Simply loosen them up and the handle should pop right off.

Replace handle on microwave oven

The part number for a new handle is 820941 and costs approx. $19. If you already have the part and are wanting to install it follow these steps:

You can either do this with the door in place, or remove it. To remove it, you open the door all the way and push up at the hinges. The door should lift off the hinge pins.

1. On the back side of the door (the side that faces the interior of the oven) is a plastic facing around the perimeter of the glass.

2. There should be a series of slots or grooves around the facing that you can place a small screwdriver in.

3. Carefully (I cannot emphasize this enough) lift around the facing until it comes loose. You may not have to remove it all the way around the door. Sometimes you can gain enough access by lifting on the side where the door handle it mounted.

4. Under the door facing are the mounting bolts (or screws). Remove broken handle and install new handle.

5. Reinstall components in the reverse order as stated before.

If you are waiting to order the part for your oven, you can get it at The part will be shipped directly do you for a nominal shipping fee.

This should be a fairly simple repair that only takes about 10-15 minutes.

Again, be careful with the door. If you break it, a replacement door costs over $200! Good luck and let me know if I can help further.

Bottom Freezer door handle

I had the same problem. It took me an hour to figure out that the bottom freezer handles clips onto the door using butterfly clips. To tighten the clips you have to remove the handle by sliding it to the right (or left??) It snaps right out with a quick **** exposing the clips underneath. A quick tightening of the clips and the handle snaps back in.
