Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have a Maytag Microwave, model # MMV5165BAW. My renter broke the handle completely off-I don't want to pay to replace the entire door but am not finding just the handle. It appears that Whirlpool makes Maytag, does Whirlpool have a door handle that is the same as the one on the Maytag? How do I cross reference the part number to a Whirlpool?

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.

You can get Samsung parts here.

Apparently the part number for the black handle is WB15X10020 and the white one is WB15X335.

You can order either and find find helpful exploded view diagrams here.

Enter the part number to order the part, and enter your model number to find the exploded views.

Sorry, but the subject lines get cut off after so many characters.

Thanks for replying.

Part # DE63-00204A looks like a valid Samsung part number but it doesn't show up anywhere, so it's likely a proprietary part made only for GE and not available separately.

You can see a helpful exploded view of this model here.

Then you can go here and enter your model number and come up with the parts list. This site has much better prices than GE.

Chances are you will end up having to but more than you want to, but not the whole door.

SOURCE: the handle on my maytag microwave oven broke off

The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.

This is not difficult. 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.

Replacement parts can be found at any of the following sites:

appliancepartspros.com
searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

I hope this helps you.

Door handle broke on my Maytag MMV4205AAQ microwave. It broke once before while under the first year warranty so I know that repair requires replacing the whole door.If I purchase the part (PS909599), how...


Hi ,

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. See picture help. This trim can be pushed so the clips will "pop" back into place after the handle repair.

The door handle broke off my GE microwave


Actually the door handle CAN be replaced at a cost much less than pruchasing an entire new microwave oven. And, YOU can repair this yourself and save the cost of a service call. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

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

If the model number is correct, the part number is WB15X322. The cost is about $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different than the one listed, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you

The entire door handle snapped off


I have the same problem- funny when we built we went all Maytag and got a bunch of lousy handles- the stove, micro, fridge, and freezer... I glued the pieces of the handle together and used plumber's putty to fix it. It's MightyPutty, but without the repackaging and cost. Just knead the putty until mixed, fill the cavity of the handle and press on the door where it was... No problem after six months so far.
