Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven
I purchased a handle for my GE microwave-part number WB15X335. The hole for the top screw of the handle is easily accessible, but the bottom screw hole is not accessible. How do I get to it? Thank you in advance.
1. order at http://www.a-1catalog.com/gemidohaw.html
2. Open the door to the microwave. The top screw is obvious. Take it out.
3) Use a flathead screwdriver or putty knife to remove the inner moulding. THis is the central thing you'll see -- the outside is the frame of the door and the inside is the frame of the screen/window. The MIDDLE thing is the one you want. It's is clipped onto the screen/window frame, so put the screwdriver in on the edge closer to the door frame and gently lever it out. There are a lot of clips. BE CAREFUL -- if you are unsure, take to an appliance repair shop that can properly test for leakage!!!
4. The lower screw will then be evident. Take it out and the handle... or shards of it in my case... comes off.
