You have to take the door off and pop out the plastic molding around interior of door. You can do this by sliding a screwdriver around the edge until you can get your fingers in. Be careful because there are some small plastic tabs that will break very easily. Next, remove screws on the backing of the door. There are similar tabs holding the backing on even after the screws are removed. I used a pair of insulated pliers and used the handle to pry the tabs back. Be careful because the tabs will break easily. Then the screw handle is exposed. Pretty easy huh?!!!! I just comleted this process and am looking for a handle. I am sure I will have to super glue some areas since I broke the tabs off.

Good luck

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!

HELLO.

THE SOLUTION ON HOW TO REPLACE THE BROKEN HANDLE

THINGS NEEDED.

Phillips screwdriver.
Thin, flat-head screwdriver.
Putty knife.
Replacement microwave door handle.

1 Examine the inside of the door. The handles of some early GE Spacemaker microwave models were attached after the two inner door panels were assembled to the outer door. If you see two recessed screws opposite the handle attaching points, undo them with a Phillips screwdriver and remove the handle. If not, go to the next step.

2 Insert the blade of a thin, flat-head screwdriver into the top, outer corner of the door, between the plastic inner frame and the outer door. Gently pry the inner frame out and slip a putty knife into the exposed opening on top of the door. Slide the putty knife toward the hinges to free the top of the inner frame; repeat on the front and bottom edges of the door and lift the inner frame out to expose a second metal inner frame.

3 Insert a thin, flat-head screwdriver into each of the small square openings on the top and bottom of the inner metal frame, starting at the handle end of the door. Undo the attaching clips by gently levering the inner door away, using the rim of the outer door as a fulcrum. Move the inner door away from the outer door on its hinges.

4 Remove the glass from the outer door. Undo the two screws holding the handle to the outer door with a Phillips screwdriver. Screw the replacement handle onto the door and tighten securely.

5 Replace the glass panel and reassemble the door by snapping the two inner frames back in place.

Thanks.

Advantium 120 door handle breakage


You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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.

Kitchenaid model KHHS179LSS Microwave oven handle replacement


There is a pin holding the door on upper right hand corner of the door. Holding the door in the open position, lift up on the door a little and remove the pin. The door will come off. There are two screws on the edges of the door on the end where the handle is located. Remove the screws. Now, Take a slim screw driver, and carefully pry between the inside door panel and the ourside door panel starting at the end where the door handle is. Lift the inside of the door out. The opposite end of the inside door panel will come out last. Believe me, this works. Getting it back together is a little bit different, but it snaps back together without using tools. Just put the inside of the door back by laying it down with the handle side down after you have replaced the handle of course. Now, pushing in on the inside of the door panel starting on the handle side, start with lining up the panel and push gently. It will go back into place much much easier than it comes out.
