Jenn air microwave oven door handle

How do I take apart the door on a jenn air microwave oven (model #M437W). There are no screws and no obvious way to disassemble the door (the handle broke and before I buy a replacement handle, I want to make sure I don't need any other parts).

This microwave was manufactured in 1992 and discontinued, but I've found replacement parts onlilne.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams for the similar model M438 here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

The model M437 is not listed, but the M438 is, and it should be similar enough to guide you. Just don't count on the part numbers being the same.

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.

Microwave door handle broken


That's correct the door has to come apart. Just be careful that screen is actually a choke to keep in any microwave radiation. Put everything back exactly as you took it apart.

Good luck

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

In some cases, you then have to gently rotate the handle to unlock it.

The latch that opens the door to my Jenn-Air model M170 microwave oven is broken. I need to repair or replace it.


If the point of damage can be glued together with good bonding and further re-enforcement , it can be strong to withstand pressure.
So remove the assembly to try this out before you think there is no way out but to replace with the handle assembly from the service center.
The other option is to get one from a scrapped set.

Handle broke off Microwave oven door can I repair? How can I access mounting screws? Where can I find parts?


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 numbers for a door handle replacement is 56001139 and 56001136. There are two pieces with the door handle on this model oven. 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.

The opening door handel broke off.


This is a generic response to your comment

Look at the inside of the door, you will probably find a plastic strip which can be pried out. Underneath the strip, you will find the screws that hold the door together. The screws may be "torx" head.

Take pics of your door with your cell phone as you work and remember, most doors are spring loaded. Watgch your fingers.

Once the door is split open, replacing the handle should be a simple matter.

I hope this helps you

Bottom screw on handle loose


All my micros had the screw go through the handle into the micro...no need to take door apart, just screw it back in. Why would you need to take the door apart?
