Help fixing a kitchenaid microwave oven/hood combo door handle


The door handles on most appliances, like outside cars & truck handles, are secured with screws from inside the door.
You will need to take the door completely apart to tighten the screws. This may be a very hard job, as it needs to be reassembled as well. God bless your efforts.

Loose microwave handle


The handle screws are installed from inside the door, so it would be necessary to disassemble the door to tighten them. You have to decide whether the time and labor involved are worth it.

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!

Loose handle.


To access the door screws on MOST microwave ovens, you need to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains:

This can be peroformed with the door in place, or with the door removed. If you have any questions, please post back with your complete model number and let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

When you open the microwave door, on the inside of the door there is a plastic trim around the glass called a choke that is clipped in that needs to be removed to get to the screws for your handle

Loose door handle


DON'T remove the cover yourself unless you fully undertand the SAFETY issues involved in working inside a microwave oven. A microwave oven is possibly THE MOST DANGEROUS common consumer product to service. Usually with these doors, the latching parts tend to loosen up at times, thus requiring some re-adjustment and tightening. Sometimes they get a bit warn and require to be replaced. The handle by itself about $40, apparently GE doesn't know how to make a door handle that will hold up for more than a year or so. I just bought a new door off of eBay for $20 + $20 shipping ... a deal compared to the $135 + tax and shipping that most of the web sites want! All you need is a phillips screwdriver and a 5/16" socket. To get to 3 screws that anchor the TOP hinge, simply remove the vent grill (open the door and remove the 2 white screws that hold it in place). To get to the 2 screws that anchor the BOTTOM hinge, simply remove the 6 screws that hold the grey bottom pan of the microwave in place. The pan will swivel down, remaining attached in the back panel. Once you've removed the 5 hinge screws, the door should pull pretty much straight out. Reverse the procedure with the new door, which should come with hinges attached. Could be that the place the spring sits in is a little broken, so theres no stop for the spring. open it up and see if there's anything you can do with it, try some epoxy putty maybe. Good luck
