Replacing GE microwave door handle

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.

The cost usually averages about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided. However, price and configuration of your oven also depends upon the MODEL NUMBER. If the model number is correct, the part number(s) for a replacement door handle is WB15X10119 and WB15X10120. The door handle on this model has two pieces.

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

Jvm1350ww 002 Handle broken


The handle part number is WB15X335 and is available from a number of sources online. You can replace the handle alone, but you need to take the inside door panel off to get at the screws. It's been too long since I've worked on a GE to remember if you need any special tools (some ovens have security screws holding things together).

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.

Repalce Door handle on GE Profile model number SCA1000DBB03


There're some half a dozen or so small screws securing that frame to the door face. These screws must be removed. Then, the frame can be pried out by releasing the plastic snappers (with a flat screwdriver) while in the same time gently helping the frame to detach from these snappers' hold and the door face. It's a tidious, somewhat annoying task. The snappers may and will even likely break in the process, but aren't needed for the frame to be resecured to the door face after the handle is replaced. Note that the broken ends of the handle must be held with a pair of pliers or a flat screwdriver needs to be inserted bewteen each of them and the hole, or the ends will turn with the screws. This is because the metal screws' grip of the plastic handle broken ends is very strong and will otherwise won't get separated.Once the above is accomplished, reassembling the door is a brease.

P.S.: The dual end latch may interfere somewhat with the job and can be removed for the prtocess to be undertaken without it disturbing. It's easy to remove and replace that latch, including its spring.
