    There are indeed no visible screws holding the door together. INstead:



    - On one side are folded sheet metal tabs which are easy to open / fold

    - One another side there is a folded sheet metal edge which is hard to old without losing the uniformity of the metal.

    - One side has tabs sinilar to the first ones listed above but thatare folded 180 degrees and inserted into slots making it impossble to unfold or remove them until the other three edges are loosened.

    - Last side that looks like it has a lip that is also folded into a slot - i.e., dont know how to get it out.



    any more ideas?

  • arifali511 Jul 29, 2009

    Actually I believe this is the correct diagram



    I just didn't find it particularly helpful as to how to disassemble the front panel. I assume I can jimmy the thing off, but I am not sure it would look the same when I reassembled it...

  • arifali511 Jul 30, 2009

    I'm not sure how you managed to find my question without noticing that my question relates to a GE Profile SpaceMaker 2.0 Microwave Oven. Unfortunately your solution will not work for me.

  • arifali511 Jul 30, 2009

    Interesting...I will look at this later today. At first glance, it is unclear how I would be able to remove that panel. But, since I've been focusing on how to get the front panel loose, your input sounds promising since it is a different angle than I'd been considering. I'll try it and let you know.

    Thanks,

  • arifali511 Jul 30, 2009

    The microwave in the video is much simpler than mine. However, I have one other solution that has been suggested. If theirs doesn't work. I'll see if I can use yours

    Bravo! it was a piece of cake!!

    Thank you very much!!

Try this:

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.

Hi there. THis should help:

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

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

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

There should be 4 screws holding the door together, remove screws, pull apart panels, and there should be 2 more screws holding on handle

    I understand. You have that type. I don't know why they sold you just a handle instead of the new door. Not all handles are replaceable.
    Although, some handles can be pulled apart and there are screws on the undereath part of it.

    How to replace the door handle

    First, click here to see the diagram. #11 hooks on to #9. Get a kitchen knife or a putty knife and slowly pull #11 off the door. Use this thread for more help. Once #11 is off, you will see the handle screws and will be able to replace the handle at that point.

Handle broke off, model # khhs179Lss-4, wna to


The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.
If you have not purchased a new door handle yet, the part number is 8205431 (White), 8205433 (Black), 8205432 (Biscuit) or 8185456 (Stainless). A new one can be purchased at pcappliancerepair.com for about $40-46. Make sure you order using the correct part number to ensure you get the right color.

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: Some doors have a small hinge pin that has to be removed in order to remove the door.

Broken handle on Spacemaker microwave


The handle can be replaced without replacing the entire door, or oven. The part number is WB15X1309 and can be purchased at pcappliancerepair.com for about $45. Due to the age of your oven, I could only find it at a couple of web sites, and this was the cheapest price I could find for you.

Check out this door frame diagram, specifically number 1805. It clips on to the door frame. Remove it using a dull table knife or something similar (be careful not to scratch or break anything). You will then have access to the bottom screw.
