Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven
1) Have to remove the door first; top of the oven there are two screws closest to the door, take those out. and the door should lift out
2) flip the door on the table with the handle side down. starting on the handle side there are three clips (top, middle, and bottom) between the outside casing and inside trim. Using a thin screwdriver gently twist starting at either the top or bottom to pod the two casings apart. work your way around the door.
3) You should see one of the screws that hold the handle on (top) but the bottom screw is under the metal casing so you need to remove the screws around this casing as well to get the other handle screw off.
Once you start you will see it isn't as bad as this sounds. I bought the handle for $40.
It is a shame that this is so cheap and breaks off this easily. Surprisingly we have had ours for at least 6 years before the handle broke and we have 3 girls opening and closing this all the time so I guess I was one of the lucky ones.
Hope this helps and good luck

Thanks for the suggestions...However, I decided that I did not wat to spend another cent on this "cheap and inferior" product. The handle on my GE Advantium120 broke twice at the same spot, the point where the bottom of the handle attaches to the door. The first time GE replaced the entire door under the extended warranty I purchased. The second time I was told verbally that this problem was not covered. I was told by a GE parts representative that GE knows they have a design flaw but have chosen to ignor it from this point on. Anyway, I saw a mighty glue commercial and figured, what the hell. I am always needing something around the house to fix things. When I received my order of "mighty glue" I did just like they showed in the commercial, and instructions, molding it into a quarter size shape. I then pulled the lower portion of the handle away from the door as far as possible, without compromizing the upper attachment point, and slid the mighty glue wafer in between the door and handle. After clamping the door to the handle for several minutes (the recommended time indicated the instructions), While clamped I removed the excess glue that squeezed out becaused of the pressure. Once dry I used a black felt pen to color the dryed glue black to match the door and handle. That was over a month ago and so far so good. Infact, that door handle has never felt so secure. It looks just like new. I just hope it holds up better than a new door or door handle would. What I have learned is to never buy a GE or GE made product, but if you do, do not buy their extended warranty which is issued by Zurich Inurance Company. You might as well have flushed your money down the toilet if you do. I have spoken to a lawyer who is looking into a class action suit over this known defect Anybody seeking further information on this can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
