Re: door handle fell off

Does your range have an all-plastic handle, a plastic handle with threaded brass inserts or a metal handle?

My oven door fell off.

You need to put door back in the hinges , pull it up and slide it back.

If door does not fit, you may need to have hinges replaced.

Open the door a few inches, to the first hold-open stage. Lift the door upward & off the mounting bars. There will be screws along the bottom edge.

Kenmore gas range model 790 door glass shattered, handle problem

We have suffered the same problem for the past 3 yrs. We first had the door all fall apart and I screwed it back together thinking that someone missed tightening a screw. Then shortly after the 1 yr warranty was up it happened again. Sears would not help, first told me that there was a recall, then not. After 6 departments and 12 people later they sent me on to whirl pool the manufacturer who said "see sears".
Anyways since we are abandoned by Sears who we trusted (as parents did) we are on our own, here is how I solved it.
After several times of the screw popping out and chipping and stripping the treads in the handle; I too switched out the bottom handle with the top but now at 3yrs old both handles had the threads stripped and chipped and the oven door fell apart during Thanksgiving dinner with the mother law 2009.
The next step for me after another round with Sears with no results (except they said it was common problem) and a letters to Att. Gen. (keep the letters flowing as they are hearing) was to go to the hardware store. I was able to find (not at the main hardware stores, had to go to mom/pa old fashion hardware store) a packet of #10 Sheet metal screws (Stainless steel) 2 1/2" long and a flat washer. This worked. Cost $1.18. Note it does strip the factory threads, so if your present threads are not too bad you may not want do it. You need the washer because the 2 1/2" is slightly too long. 2 1/4" would be a better length but I could not find them.
I would think Sears would want to avoid the bad press by sending all of us $1.18 worth of hardware out. Sears offered to sell me new handles, but I was not about to give them any more of my $.
And I agree it is a very stupid design to have to small handle (where the most stress is) holding the door/glass together.
Note if glass breaks, do not mess around, buy the proper part to go back in.

Oven door handle

Lady, you are going to have to take the door apart to get at the handle screws. The whole door will lift off the hinges, place it down on a flat surface and go from there. You can find your manual with instructions at

If that link doesn't work, go to, click on the Maytag section, follow the links, enter your model number and you will find your manual. Make sure to take your time, these can sometimes be a pain. Catriver.

Kenmore Electric Range - Door handle

I had the same problem with my stove. I tried to replace, glue the srews and other things, but nothing really worked well. It's a shame that Kennmore has such a design flaw in their stoves, but did nothing to help their customers.

Here is the solution that worked for me:

Fix the thread with helicoils (these are inserts that create a new threat in the handle). You can find the instructions how to use the helicoils on Youtube.
I replaced the crews with new screws that fit to the helicoil threat and now the handle is safely secured.

Handle on oven door falling

Murray...after a DJ here in NY from the '60's!

First, why is the handle falling off? Is it loose or damaged? Most of these handles are only plastic with holes tapped in. If the holes are damaged and you can't fix them, you will have to replace. Most handles are through bolted in the door. You should be able to access those screws from the inside of the door. If not....

How do take a door apart: First locate any screws in the bottom of the door. Remove them. Open the door and remove screws from the sides and inside of door. Get help supporting the outside of the door and note that it will snap shut when you remove any weight from the door. Caution, most door glass is not well clipped may come loose!!!! You may want to take pictures of the inside of the door once you open it. Once the door is apart, locate any fasteners holding the handle and attempt to tighten them. If not successful, you'll need that new handle. Get an extra set of hands to help with removal and reinstallation of that door skin. You'll need 'em!

Maytag electric range door handle (how to replace?)

The above solution is fine, but you don't have to remove the door.  Open the storage drawer for access to the trim screws (3) on the bottom of the door, remove the screws.  Have a helper hold the glass along the bottom. Take the three screws on the top of the door trim out.  Slide out the glass and put in a safe place.  Remove the four screws that hold the handle brackets in place, remove the handle (or tighten if loose). Install the new handle (one screw on each side).  Reinstall all parts in the reverse order of disassembly.  The entire job took less than 30 minutes.
