Look really good on inside of door. You should be able to remove the inner panel and then have access to bolts for the handle? If not... Epoxy is your best friend at this point! Good luck!

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) that demonstrates how it's done.

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

SOURCE: Replace handle on Ewave microwave

Hi,

A common Guide that would help you :-

http://www.applianceaid.com/oven-hinges.html

Generic Procedure on most of the Ovens :-

Set the door on the ground with the hinges facing up. You will need to push down on the hinges and extend them by hand. It's probably best to put something in the palm of your hand like a handle of a screwdriver so that you can push on the hinge and open it up (you will still have to push hard). When you open the hinge up you will see a tiny hole appear about the size of a pin head. You will need to stick a screw or something inside this hole so that the hing will not close again. When you have both hinges locked out you can then reinstall your door at about a 45 degree angle. Open the door up all the way and remove the screws or pins you placed through the door and then you can shut the door all the way again.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Microwave door handle broken


That's correct the door has to come apart. Just be careful that screen is actually a choke to keep in any microwave radiation. Put everything back exactly as you took it apart.

Good luck

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.

Trying to replace the KHMS155LSS3 handle...


To replace the plastic handle on the KitchenAid KHMS155LSS-3 you pry open the door cover from the inside to release the upper tangs (~10). I used razor blades wedged between the tang point to hold them disengaged. Pull the front cover off the door starting from the handle end. Once the top edge is free, the bottom can be remover. See Pitcures.
Repeat the door cover removes with the handle attached from the front after you lift the tangs._828.jpg_829.jpg_830.jpg_831.jpg

Need to replace the handle I have the part but how do i desassemble the door properly


To access the door handle mounting screws, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to simply pry the plastic up and work your way gradually around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens 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.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Need to replace handle on GE Spacesaver Microwave J VM130K 004.


I looked up the $39.99 part ! (almost as much as a new microwave)
If you want to replace the handle, get the new handle and see how the new handle goes on and you can determine how to take off the old handle.

Getting door frame apart to install new handle


If you're replacing the handle, then order the choke cover..It's the piece on the inside of the door that covers the handle screws. No matter how carefull you are, it is almost guaranteed to break. If you break it, then you have one, and if not, send it back. DO NOT OPERATE MICRO WITHOUT CHOKE COVER.
