Question about Maytag MMV5156AAS Microwave Oven

Replacing door handle

I want to replace the door handle on a Maytag model MMV5156AAS above range microwave. When I open the microwave door, there is not access to the screws that hold the door handle in place. I do not see how to remove part of the inside of the microwave door to access the handle screws. There is an inch thick vynil strip around the inside of the door that looks like you might be able to pry it off, but I am afraid of breaking it.

The choke cover (or door gasket on your brand) will come out similar to the diagram shown below.

Then the hidden screws should be visible.

It does pry apart but you will need to be careful because the tabs are plastic and can break.  Look at this diagram for a model similar to yours and see if this helps.

Maytag mmv5156aas:The button overlay melted. How do I obtain one


your part number is 53001039.
Here is the picture
and it is in stock here (use coupon "New10" for 10% off)

As far as I can tell you need to remove the grille on top to get to the screw on top of the control panel/overlay assembly. The grille is usually held by 3 screws on top or in front of the grille.

Over the range microwave handle melted


To replace the door handle, 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.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.
