New Handle for Maxim 3 oven

Hi
I'm trying to find a supplier for a handle for my Maxim 3 Convection Oven. The oven is about 25 years old and was made by the Maxim Company 164 Delancy Street, Newark, New Jersey 07105.
I live in England and can't find a supplier here.
Do you know where I might be able to find one. It's such a great little oven it would be shame to discard it only because of the handle.
Hoping you can help.
Doug

    I have the same oven bought in 1985. Still works great but the glass door broke and part of the handle. We rigged up a subsistute door with heavy gauge aluminum sheeting that molds over the front of the oven to keep the heat in . I would like to buy a new glass door and handle but don't know where to find the Maxim company either.The truth is ,I ***** tried before now.

    The latch handle to the door was broken off at both hinges. This is the first step I have taken in its repair.

    The glass door on my Maxim oven Model OV-300 shattered. Cannot find the Maxim company for replacement. Any chance someone has this same oven that is no longer functioning well, but has the door and would be willing to sell the door.

    Also looking for the handle on the Maxim 3 convection oven. The plastic has broken on the hinge that fits onto the glass door. Live in South Africa been on the web and cannot find a Dealer??

  • pensterh Aug 22, 2008

    I too have the same problem -- the black plastic handle has broken off the glass door, though the rest of the oven works fine. I've used epoxy to glue the handle back on & reinforce the screws, but the plastic connections are finally too broken to glue together. If anyone has success getting parts from Salton/Maxim, please let us know... Many thanks!

Hi All -- I just spoke to a very helpful Maxim/Salton customer representative (1-800-231-9786 is the US #), and the glass door for the Maxim OV-300 is considered a "non-stock" part. This means that it's not in stock, but it is (hopefully ;) possible for the company to order it from their manufacturer in China, though it could "take months." I was able to place an order for the door for $20.90 USD including shipping to Los Angeles. Hopefully if others place orders, they'll really re-make some of these parts! Good luck, Penny

Thank you for the information on Maxim 3 Parts :) Might anyone have a manual around that they can scan to PDF, etc.? I'd love to have a copy of the original manual. I still use my Maxim 3 regularly.

The handle on my oven has come off but I'm not sure what model it is. The oven is my partners Nan's and it is important for us to get it fixed or replaced on the handle it says monier maxim oven convection oven continuous self cleaning

Posted on Sep 19, 2014

I need the side piece that the kind of hooks? on the door handle fit into.

Maybe someone out there has one that isn't working and could part it out to all of us who need parts?

I did find out that Salton, Inc. owns/owned Maxim and they have both a U.S. and a U.K. base.

No heat generated in microwave or convection oven mode


I just read that starting the microwave as usual and then slightly pressing in the handle (you can hear the heater(?) come on will make the heat come on. Tried it and it works. My repairman told me it needed a new magnetron ($700) but that was totally wrong. I will be trying another repairman to replace handle mechanism.

Handle broken off the door of a black advantium 120


The handles are usually held on by two screws which are usually visible on the back of the door. The handle itself should be available at some of the parts suppliers who sell on the internet.

How to Replace Broken Handle


Sorry but the chat system seems slow and hard to work with.

Page 28 & 29 of the service manual tell you how to remove the door and take it apart to replace the handle.

The service manual is here.

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

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

How do you replace the handle on my advantium 120 oven


If it's just the bottom one and you don't want to disassemble things to reconnect things right, drill a pilot hole in at an angle through handle and door to permit screwing in a wood screw to fix it up.  Brutish, yet sexy.

3 year old unit, oven works, microwave does not


hi,

You may need a new magnetron, contact sharp or the store you got it from; most microwaves have a 3-5 year warranty on the magnetron. If it's not in warranty, find a good appliance repairman, this is a difficult and dangerous repair job.
