Broken door handle on GE microwave oven

I am house sitting for my brother in Newark, CA and the GE Spacemaker Microwave door handle broke. The top of the handle is no longer attached. I tried that super putty stuff they advertise on TV that is supposed to bond to anything and it did not work. I can't find the Model#JVM140k002 Serial #TG996147S online. How can I fix it and/or how much would it cost to have someone else fix it? I need to get this done A.S.A.P.

    I have the same problem and was able to get a handle using the solution suggested. Now, how do I get to where the screws are? I do not see any outside screws and assume I need to pop off the plastic strips, but am leery to begin prying.

Hi stormy

door handles are usually model specific, but I think your serial # may be JVM140K02. look that up at a partstore web site and see if it matches

How do I repair the broken handle on my Spacemaker microwave from GE?


you have to remove the trim inside the door. you have to carefully pry the inner trim and kind of twist it as you remove it so you don't break it.
if there is enough of the handle left where the screw goes in(I'm assuming that's where it broke) sometimes you can drill into it a little and put a longer screw on. otherwise you need to buy a new handle.

Broken door handle


The in side door panel ( at total pain) must come off

If the damage to the bottom is not too bad.
On mine I took the cover for the handle loose from the bottom ( it pops off, but be careful).
and put screws at the bottom

Cannot remove handle to replace it.  The handle broke on top.


You must pry out the plastic strip that surrounds the window on the inside of the door to reach the top screw that holds on the handle. Be prepared to spend a pretty penny on the replacement handle as well.

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.
