No, glues are no good in microwaves due to high temperatures, may give off toxic fumes etc. you need new door fittings which isnt easy to fit, take to approved dealer, he will also test for leakage out side the door.

My Siemens HF759 (Stainless steel) front has come away from the glass and is only hanging via the top of the glass by the handle. How do I put it back?


You can remove the front glass and trim by removing the two torx screws at the top of the door, they are the ones next to the prongs that stickup from the door when open. Once these are removed the door front lifts up as the bottom is only hooked on. It looks like you need to remove more screws but you don't. A two person job as the door needs to be held in the nearly closed position as you lift off the front. Once you have the door off remove the two screws holding the handle on and it is then just the glue holding the trim on which in your case and mine has failed. I googled for oven door glue and found a very good site which has excellent instructions and video for application. The biggest hassle was cleaning off the old glue (scraper and acetone) and making sure it was aligned correctly before gluing, I used masking tape for a few dry runs as you only get one chance with the glue and it goes off quickly. Hope this helps.

Why does the light / safety switch stay on when the door latches shut ?


Most likely there is a part missing from the door latch mechanism that you need. This probably broke off when the handle failed. It would be a tab or wedge shaped piece of plastic that strikes the door switch and pushes the switch closed when the door is completely shut. You will need to find that piece and glue it back on or get a new handle assembly from Samsung.

PLMVZ169HCA Turntable slips on the glass plate


hmmm? me's thinking about this one!!!!
the glass plate has drive dogs on the bottom of it, that fit into drive dogs on the turn table, if its not meshed up right it just spins freely and normaly throw's the glass plat off??? are the bearing that are under the glass plate turning freely? thats the big ring that the plate rides on near the out side edge of the plate, and can be taken out for cleaning??? it looks like a hoop with 3 or 4 rollers in it??? if you forgot to put this bit back in the right way up after cleaning it thats the problem???

The door handle on my microwave broke away from the door. Is it


Of course it is.  You can glue it on with gorilla glue, perhaps using a screw shaft (be sure to drill pilot holes) like a dowel in carpentry to secure and add area for the glue to adhere to.  Drill the pilot hole in the handle bit the thread diameter rather than the shaft diameter, so you don't have to screw the handle on once you cut off the screw head.

Loose glass in door


Silicone glue would be best since it has very good heat tolerance and, if the clear is used, there will be no problem with it absorbing energy but I wouldn't use any with colorant as it could have metallic pigments.

Broken Handle


On almost any microwave oven door if you open the door,on the inside part of the door,theres a square plate thats plastic that is a one piece unit that goes all the way around the edge of the door . That held on by little plastic clips that are molded right on the suround and easy to break, so take a small screw driver(of course the ovens unplugged by now) and start at one end and start prying it out inch by inch. Being care full not to crack it. If yop do crack it, you must replace it, but its not that expensive. Once you have off the cover surround, you will see the screws that hold on the handle. If you need help getting the part go to http://www.repairclinic.com as even if its not listed get the phone # and call them and they will assist you. Good Luck
