How to replace cracked plastic door frame on Whirlpool microwave?

The plastic frame on the door of our Whirlpool MH1150XMT0 microwave has a stress crack under the handle and running from the middle screw hole on the side of the door to the glass front. I have a new frame and glass (part # 8185285). After removing the screws on the side of the door under the handle, I can't find a way to dismount the frame. What are the next steps ?

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.

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

How to replace the door handle on a whirlpool MH2155XPQ micro wave


The screws that hold on the handle are inside the door assembly. Here is the way its done but its not for the average person. On the inside of the door is a plastic frame all the way around the door. It is held in place by plastic tabs. You have to gently pry off that frame with something like a putty knife or small screw driver. If you are not careful you end up breaking off some of the tabs. Once that frame is off you should have access to the 2 screws holding on the handle. Remove screws---replace handle---and push plastic frame back on.

Trying to replace handle on door,removed three screws on side of door unable to remove inside panel


Most microwave doors are just clipped together with plastic tabs.To remove the inner door panel you need to carefully pry the plastic frame off the inside with something like a small screwdriver or putty knife. Even being careful you may end up breaking the tabs or frame. Once the inner frame is removed you should be able to get to the handle screws. I'll try to attach a picture of the door breakdown.

Can I replace the door locking mechanism on a GE JVM1650 microwave oven?


If you are talking about the 2 hooks that stick out of the door, in most cases yes they are replaceable. also the switches behind the holes the hooks go into are also replaceable. Door hooks can be accessed by carefully prying off the plastic inner door frame around the hooks. You have to be gentle or the frame will crack. Take your time and go slowly all the way around the door.

Whirlpool microwave hood combination has code f2 on touch panel. Model number: MH-1150xm


The F2 error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

On these models, usually the membrane keypad is not available separately, so you would have to order and replace the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad (sometimes called "panl-cntrl").

The part availability and cost will depend on the full model number from the tag on the unit, and it will be one of these:

MH1150XMB0
MH1150XMB1
MH1150XMB2
MH1150XMB3
MH1150XMB4
MH1150XMQ0
MH1150XMQ1
MH1150XMQ2
MH1150XMQ3
MH1150XMQ4
MH1150XMS0
MH1150XMS1
MH1150XMS2
MH1150XMS3
MH1150XMS4
MH1150XMT0
MH1150XMT1
MH1150XMT2
MH1150XMT3
MH1150XMT4

You can order the part and find helpful exploded view diagrams here.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

How to remove the outter door frame on the GE Microwave


You need to use the entire correct model number at their site, but you can find a helpful exploded view PDF diagram by searching for "Repair Part" at the GE parts site: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ Normally you can separate the door panels without removing the door. I've included a diagram from a Sharp model that might help. If you do have to remove the door, you have to be sure you reinstall it exactly where and how it was, or you may get microwave leakage. You should definititely mark the locations of all the hardware before disassembly.
