    door does not close properly so that micro won't function unless I stand there and hold the door closed. We had the opposite problem some months ago and had a GE service person come. We paid $110 and now have the door loose and not connecting problem.

    My handle is broken, ordered a new one, now looking at this door, which apparently has no access to the handle for removal. There must be some solution?

Solution for GE Spacemaker Ovens (my model is JVM1650BH05)

1- Remove door by lifting it out of hinges. You will need to remove grille first (2 set screws).
2- Carefully pry off the plastic inside door trim. Use a fine knife or putty knife. There are 10 tabs holding the trim from behind. It's OK if you break a tab! Try to pull out as straight as possible.
3- Once the trim is off, remove the 2 visible screws that hold the door handle. NOTE: There are 2 invisible screws so you are not done yet!
4- You now need to remove the metal ring that holds the latches. To do that, grab the metal ring and using your other hand, release each plastic tab one by one (same tabs as above).
5- Once the metal ring is loose, you will see 2 screws. Remove them if they are still there.
6- Position your new handle and attach using the first 2 screws.
7- Reposition the metal ring by re-snapping it in place. Install the other 2 screws.
8- Replace the plastic trim by snapping it back in place
9- Reinstall door and grille. Tell wife or hubby that you are a genius!

Bonus: use metal washers when screwing down the 2 first screws.

I followed all of FreddyNM's directions to replace the handle. They worked great! The only suggestion that I would make is to intall the door before you snap the metal ring back on. We had alot of trouble trying to squeeze the door back onto the hinges. It's a very tight squeeze. We ultimately gave up, unsnapped the metal ring and then installed the door. Much, much easier.

On the inside of the door of our Whirlpool microwave, there is a plastic rectangular bezel that can be gently pried off with a flatblade screwdriver or putty knife. This exposes the two screws that hold the handle on.

    I was able to get an inexpensive cabinet/drawer handle in stainless from ikea & drill & tap new holes at the 7 3/4" spacing for the handle on our microwave and make a new handle from that.

    The @%^ service place wanted $260 to replace the entire door, and claimed they couldnt sell me the part for safety reasons. whatever

I have a Whirlpool MH7155MB0. The door handle was broken. I ordered a new handle on line. Then I removed the three screws at the handle end of the door. I used seveal screwdrivers to pry between the outer fram and the inner frame. I pried near the handle end and eventually the two halves separated near the handle end. The frames are held together and the door hinge end by interlocking plastic parts (so be sure to pry at the handle end). The handle was held on the door simply by two screws that could be removed from the inside once I got the door separated. Hope this helps.

I need to put a new door handle on a kitchen aid microwave. It is above the stove, the model number is khms155lss-4


The diagram can be found at
http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/W0601206-00002.png

Open the door all the way and lift it up (press on bottom of door) to lift the hinge pins out, then pull away from the unit (walk backward) to remove it.

Then, the remove the inner plastic shell from the outer plastic shell by prying gently around the outer shell. There are no screws holding it together.

Once apart, you can see the screw (item 8 in the drawing). You can remove the screw and replace the handle. reverse the process to get it together.

Make sure the door is all the way back in tightly and firmly just as it is now or you can have a microwave leak. Work carefull and, if you have a digital camera or a camera phone, take pictures of each step to make sure you know how it goes back together.

cheers.

Replace handle on whirpool microwave


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.


If you have not purchased a new handle yet, the part number is 4359474 (Black) and 4359473 (White) and costs about $30.


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.


NOTE: If you wish to remove the door, all you need to do on most models is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges.


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

The door handle on my microwave broke off at bottom of the door. The screws holding the handle on are not visible from the back of the door. How do I access the screws to replace the handle. GE Profile...


The back of the door will have a moulded surround that will be fixed with allen heads or small screws. Remove the inside cover of the door and you will see the holes for the handle.

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

Replace handle on microwave oven


The part number for a new handle is 820941 and costs approx. $19. If you already have the part and are wanting to install it follow these steps:

You can either do this with the door in place, or remove it. To remove it, you open the door all the way and push up at the hinges. The door should lift off the hinge pins.

1. On the back side of the door (the side that faces the interior of the oven) is a plastic facing around the perimeter of the glass.

2. There should be a series of slots or grooves around the facing that you can place a small screwdriver in.

3. Carefully (I cannot emphasize this enough) lift around the facing until it comes loose. You may not have to remove it all the way around the door. Sometimes you can gain enough access by lifting on the side where the door handle it mounted.

4. Under the door facing are the mounting bolts (or screws). Remove broken handle and install new handle.

5. Reinstall components in the reverse order as stated before.

If you are waiting to order the part for your oven, you can get it at repairclinic.com. The part will be shipped directly do you for a nominal shipping fee.

This should be a fairly simple repair that only takes about 10-15 minutes.

Again, be careful with the door. If you break it, a replacement door costs over $200! Good luck and let me know if I can help further.
