SOURCE: BROKEN HANDLE FOR GE MODEL JVM1340WW002

Odd that we both have the same problem on the same model and same day..
If it's completely broken off, then you have probably pulled the threads out of the cheap plastic,, there are two screws that hold the handle on, one is easy to find/see, on the inside of the door, upper left corner,, to find the other, you need to remove (gently/carefully) the plastic bezel,, (all of this stuff is on the inside of the door), tap on it to find the plastic part,(bezel) and gently remove it by prying,, "prying" is an ugly word,, but since it snaps in, I'm not sure how else to tell you how to do it,, (Just go slow)
Once the bezel is removed, you can get to the other screw,
Now you have both screws, and know where they are supposed to fit later,,
On the back of the handle, the part that goes against the door, there are "studs" (plastic posts about 1/2 inch long and about the size of a pencil),, look closely into hole in the mounting stud, and you will probably see where the plastic threads have pulled out,, If thats the case,, the fun starts,,,

Go to lowes, or Home depot, and buy the smallest bottle of "Loctite" brand epoxy you can find,,
Look closely and the box will say something like,, "SETS IN 5 MIN.", or so,, get the LONGEST setting epoxy that they have,,

Now your back home and drinking a cold beer,, and ready for fun,, ---,Spray the screws with "non-stick" cooking spray, and set aside, (but handy)
Next,, match the handle back up to the door,, and identify which is the top,, mark it,, (masking tape and magic marker),,
I know it sounds silly, but you don't want to be fumbling around with it, while the epoxy runs back out of the holes and all over everything,, set the handle aside, but handy,,

Follow the instructions on the box, to mix the epoxy,, (work quickly)
Now,, using a toothpick or something similar,(disposable) dribble the mixed epoxy into the holes, (where the screws need to go), you don't need to fill them up, but a good 5 drops or so at least,,, WORK QUICK,,, remember to put it in both holes,,

Get ready to mate it back to the door, handle in one hand, a screw in the other,,
Top on top,, and from the front,,put the studs into the two holes
and as quick as you can, insert the screws,, you probably won't need to screw them in, (Threads are stripped out), but you may,, if so, just barely tighten them, just enough to "seat them, and the handle to the door,, It would be best to tape the handle in place until the epoxy sets,,
Check for ozzing,, dribbles, and drops,, and wipe it up now,, or it will be there forever,,
Sit back, put feet up, drink the rest of the beer, and watch epoxy dry,,, (Wait an hour to be safe) Besides, it gives ya more time to drink some more beer,,
Thats my best guess on how to re-attach the handle,, But I'm waiting until tomorrow to do it,, (out of beer)
Best of luck, Ted

SOURCE: how do you replace a broken handle for a GE Spacemaker II microwave?

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.

On some models, the handle may rotate into and unlocked position then lift out.

Apparently the part number for the black handle is WB15X10020 and the white one is WB15X335.

You can order either and find find helpful exploded view diagrams here.

Enter the part number to order the part, and enter your model number to find the exploded views.

Normally 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) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Problem with handle on microwave


It sounds looks like there is problem with the model number for your GE microwave. However the handle will usually involve taking the door apart. I can supply you with a breakdown diagram but i would need a proper model number off the microwave itself.

I have broken handle on the GE Spacemaker Model JVM130H. Can this be replaced and how?


The door handle can easily be replaced on most microwave ovens. You just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

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

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

The door handle broke off my GE microwave


Actually the door handle CAN be replaced at a cost much less than pruchasing an entire new microwave oven. And, YOU can repair this yourself and save the cost of a service call. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

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

If the model number is correct, the part number is WB15X322. The cost is about $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different than the one listed, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you

I have a GE Profile Microwave and the handle is broken....


I have the same issue. The Handle broke off my GE Microwave Oven (Model JVM1190SY 001). GE does not sell the handle seperately from what I can tell. I just ordered a new door. It's rediculously expensive. I tried to replace the handle with a nice drawer pull but couldn't find a size pull to match and I broke the plastic cover trying to get access to the screws for the handle, which is why I decided to buy the new door. Hopefully installation is not that difficult. This oven was manufactured in 2001, seems the handles have a 7 year life span.
