Question about KitchenAid KHMS155LSS 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

Trying to replace the KHMS155LSS3 handle...

Everything I have read only gets you past the first step of removing the inner frame. And by the way, no matter how careful I was, it still seemed impossible to do without breaking it. Now I need to buy that part too. Once this is removed, it looks like I need to remove the inner door however this is my big hurdle. I am pretty sure the screws holding the handle on are located on the other side of the inner door. I cannot seem to figure out how to remove the inner door to access the handle's screws. The diagrams I have found that show how the door fits together do not have enough detail to understand how this comes apart. Any experts out there?

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.Trying to replace the KHMS155LSS3 handle... - _828.jpg_830.jpg_831.jpg

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.

How to disassemble the door of gmh5205xvs-0


On the inside of the door there is a plastic frame that goes around the edge with 2 slots in it that the door latches go through. You have to very carefully pry the frame outward to remove it. First check with a parts supplier to see if your handle is available because some microwave doors are not repairable----you need to purchase a complete door. If the handle is available then attempt to remove the frame as I described before. Once the frame is off you should be able to see the handle screws. If they are still hidden the outer door frame and inner metal door will need to be separated also. They too just pry apart with plastic tabs holding everything together. Replace handle and reassemble. Not hard just time consuming and must be done carefully so as not to break the plastic parts.

1. Open the door.

2. Take out the 2 screws just behind the handle, on the inside of the door, the door should flop down at the handle end.

3. Hold the door handle and pull the door out. It is only housed in by a slip in hooks at the bottom end.

4. Once you remove the door you will see the inner metal mesh and the inner door behind it.

5. Remove the 16 screws holding the inner glass with a special star type screw driver bit no T30.

6. Once you done that the glass housing holding the inner glass can be carefully prised free and taken off the inner door assembley.

7. Once you done that remove and inner glass, and be carefull to leave the glass glass seal intact, clean around the frame housing and the seal then replace the new inner glass and reverse the process.

PS. Becareful of the inner door once you've removed the outer door, as the hinges holding the inner door tend to shut quickly as there is less weight on the hinges.

It will do the job if you follow these instructions.Good Luck. AL

Mmi have a ge advantiun x20 model SCA1001FSS01 THE HNDLE IS BROKEN OFF HOW DO i REPLACE THIS pafife@yahoo.com


HELLO.

THE SOLUTION ON HOW TO REPLACE THE BROKEN HANDLE

THINGS NEEDED.

Phillips screwdriver.
Thin, flat-head screwdriver.
Putty knife.
Replacement microwave door handle.

1 Examine the inside of the door. The handles of some early GE Spacemaker microwave models were attached after the two inner door panels were assembled to the outer door. If you see two recessed screws opposite the handle attaching points, undo them with a Phillips screwdriver and remove the handle. If not, go to the next step.

2 Insert the blade of a thin, flat-head screwdriver into the top, outer corner of the door, between the plastic inner frame and the outer door. Gently pry the inner frame out and slip a putty knife into the exposed opening on top of the door. Slide the putty knife toward the hinges to free the top of the inner frame; repeat on the front and bottom edges of the door and lift the inner frame out to expose a second metal inner frame.

3 Insert a thin, flat-head screwdriver into each of the small square openings on the top and bottom of the inner metal frame, starting at the handle end of the door. Undo the attaching clips by gently levering the inner door away, using the rim of the outer door as a fulcrum. Move the inner door away from the outer door on its hinges.

4 Remove the glass from the outer door. Undo the two screws holding the handle to the outer door with a Phillips screwdriver. Screw the replacement handle onto the door and tighten securely.

5 Replace the glass panel and reassemble the door by snapping the two inner frames back in place.

Thanks.

How to change the handle


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.

You'll notice there are small clips holding the stainless outer door to the black metal inner door. Get a bunch of putty knives (butter knives work too) and work a knife into about every other clip. I did it on the bottom. Once you're sure all the bottom clips are free, and you've removed the three screws on the side of the door, you'll be able to gently pull the stainless outer door away from the black inner door and get to the handle screws.

I bent both doors in this process, and tore the black plastic liner into a few pieces while I was getting everything out, so I had to buy a new door ($200). Be careful.

You can search under Repair Parts and enter your full model number JVM1650BB005 and get an exploded view diagram here: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ That diagram can be a great help. Also, I've attached below a door panel diagram from a Sharp model. Your GE disassembly may work the same way. If you haven't already taken the door off the microwave, I would recommend you don't unless you leave the hinge assembly attached to the door and remove the door from the hinges. It's critical to be sure you get (or keep) the door and hinged aligned exactly as they were to prevent leakage.
