To replace the door handle, normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

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

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

Grease dripping from bottom of microwave


sometimes when a microwave is mounted above a range some people dont always consider that you have to take into consideration that you have to go by the heat rating guidelines because it will melt the white lithium grease off the gearing and it can possibly melt some of the protective coating from the circuit boards so check if it is rated to be placed above a range and go from there

I have a brand new over the range whirlpool microwave. There was a grease fire on the range that melted the door, all of the buttons and censor strip things are gone. so my question is can it be repaired...


No! You would have to rebuild the entire microwave including the part that produces the radiation (magnetron or similar). Then you need to seal the unit to keep the radiation from leaking into the rest of your kitchen. The radiation leakage would a) result in much slower cooking and b) be dangerous since it could arc with any nearby metal including the stove. Buying a new microwave would be cheaper and safer.

A countertop microwave in a different part of the kitchen might be a better choice.

I wish that I could be more helpful.

(the major parts of the microwave die when they reach ~200 degrees; the housing won't melt until it is much hotter (if I remember the melting points of the common plastics used correctly).)

Our GE Profile spacemaker 2.0 handle is broken. How can I change it?


The door handle can easily be replaced on MOST microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement


The average cost for a replacement handle usually runs about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or with the door removed. You do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.


If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you

It would help, however, to know the number of the microwave oven you are referring to. All ovens are not designed the same and are assembled in different ways. What I have provided you with is the basic information that applies to most ovens. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Maytag Over The Range Microwave: Melted glass turntable, rollers


Considering the melting pooint of glass ...

Normally, microwave travels around round surfaces (Look at the B-1 for example) If you put flat metal in a microwave, you will create sparks ... lots of em. Is it possible you have something going on with one of the wheels ... like a piece of tin foil?

At a minimum, I think id be inspecting everything inside very carefully and then give it a good cleaning.

You might want a pro in your area tale a look at this as well.
