My door handle is broken. Is it posssible to


You should be able to buy only the door handle and avoid having to replace the entire door. Appliancepartspros.com carries the handle. Just type in the model number you provided and look for item #3 under the parts listing. The part number and price varies based on the color you need. Make sure you order the correct 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.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

The bottom of the door handle broke off. GE spacemaker xl


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.

Getting door frame apart to install new handle


If you're replacing the handle, then order the choke cover..It's the piece on the inside of the door that covers the handle screws. No matter how carefull you are, it is almost guaranteed to break. If you break it, then you have one, and if not, send it back. DO NOT OPERATE MICRO WITHOUT CHOKE COVER.

Replace handle on microwave oven


The part number for a new handle is 820941 and costs approx. $19. If you already have the part and are wanting to install it follow these steps:

You can either do this with the door in place, or remove it. To remove it, you open the door all the way and push up at the hinges. The door should lift off the hinge pins.

1. On the back side of the door (the side that faces the interior of the oven) is a plastic facing around the perimeter of the glass.

2. There should be a series of slots or grooves around the facing that you can place a small screwdriver in.

3. Carefully (I cannot emphasize this enough) lift around the facing until it comes loose. You may not have to remove it all the way around the door. Sometimes you can gain enough access by lifting on the side where the door handle it mounted.

4. Under the door facing are the mounting bolts (or screws). Remove broken handle and install new handle.

5. Reinstall components in the reverse order as stated before.

If you are waiting to order the part for your oven, you can get it at repairclinic.com. The part will be shipped directly do you for a nominal shipping fee.

This should be a fairly simple repair that only takes about 10-15 minutes.

Again, be careful with the door. If you break it, a replacement door costs over $200! Good luck and let me know if I can help further.
