The handle is part number WB15X335 and you can find it online from several sources. You can replace the handle alone. You do have to remove the door inner panel to get to the handle screws.

How to replace WB15X10022


That would be the door handle used on several GE and Kenmore models.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screw(s) you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

In some cases, you then have to gently rotate the handle to unlock it.

Replacing a broken handle on GE microwave model JVM1660SB 005. I can't get at all the screws on the old handle.


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.

This repair can be done with the door in place, or you can remove it for easier access. If you decide the remove the door, simply open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If you need a diagram, pcappplaincerepair.com has some excellent exploded view illustrations you can refer to for assistance. If you haven't purchased a new door handle yet, the part number is WB15X10022.

How to install WB15X10022 GE Microwave Handle.


This is a generic answer

Open the door and look carefully for a plactic strip that may be covering screws. If none. look on the bottom edge or the edge with the hinge. Remember, someone had to assemble the door so there has to be some way to disassemble it. I have never seen one that can not be opened (glued, cemented or welded closed) Remember, most doors are spring loaded and may snap shut on you with the door partially removed. Also, keep in mind the process you went through to get it apart. You will have to reverse that process. You may want to take pics with your cell phone as you progress.

Once open (and you may need a 'Torx' tool to remove the screws), replacing the handle should be simple.

Let me know how you make out.

I would like to replace the microwave oven handle.


The inside of the door has a Black Plastic frame about 1 inch wide. This frame can be removed by placing a thin screwdriver between it and the outer door frame and gently (very gently) prying it away from the door. It takes a little wiggling of the frame but it will unlock. On each end of the handle is a philips head screw that holds the handle to the door.

Kenmore 363.62709200


I searched by that model and there was no match. Then I found model 363.62709300.

If that looks like yours, then color may be the only difference.

They show the handle as (GE) part # WB15X10022 for $29.99.

You can get it a little cheaper here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
