A friend of mine said that the assembly process doesn't really allow for consumer replacement, since the metal screen mesh is important to shield the microwaves, and an incorrect "fix" could be dangerous, healthwise, so they are designed that way on purpose, to protect from lawsuits, etc. I found out that parts for this model microwave have been discontinued, and even the repair facilities have no parts. You could try to google the machine on Ebay to try to find a whole door replacement, but that's a long shot. The glass isn't as important as the metal mesh, and if the mesh is still intact, I would think a piece of glass could be glued on top of it, but that would just be a sloppy but workable fix. Wish I had better news, or a workable solution, but this is the best I can do. Good luck.

Why would my kenmore micro wave model 721.66463500 just go dead, no power


There may be a weakened connection around the main power supply 'Transformer'. Sometimes the connections can overheat but if they are removed and replaced it may again make contact. I've had a similar problem and found parts from similar brands to replace the connecting/wiring parts. I soon realized that I could have removed the extra pieces around the wires without causing any electrical problems. That is the minor repair. The major repair would be to replace one of the main features (large or small) which assist the transformer in power functions. Take your time examining the tiniest parts and pieces.

How does the bulb inside the micro wave come out is it a screw in one?


It will vary from unit to unit what type of lamp or bulb is used, You might do one of several things--read the owner manual as instructions are often there, if a major brand call customer service with the model number.

Search With Google for the manual with the model number and look on You Tube who often has video instructions based and model, brand or general description of what you want to do: :"how to replace the bulb in my microwave" etc.

How do i replace a broken over the range micro wave door handle


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.
The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or removed. And, you do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.

It would help, however, to know what brand and model microwave oven you are referring to. All ovens are not designed the same and are assembled in different ways. What I have provided you with is the basic information that applies to most microwave ovens. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you

Broken micro wave handle


On most brands, 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.

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

To find Danby parts, refer to your owner's manual or contact the dealer from whom you bought the oven for Danby's contact information.

How to replace the door handle on a mod. MH 1170XSY-0 mico wave


To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

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) that demonstrates how it's done.

The best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics).

For this model, I would call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Bottom part of door to micro-wave is broken, where the class part of the door is held in place. Is there any place that sells the door and not the whole micro-wave? this is a GE spacesaver.


You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

You should be able to replace just the affected door panel and save money as well as the hassle of complicated door alignment and leakage tests.
