Loose door handle on PLMV169 Stainless microwave

My microwave functions fine, but the door handle is very loose and there aren't any screws I can get to to tighten it up. I'm afraid the handle will come off and a screw will drop inside the door or something. Is there a way to fix this?

SOURCE: over the range microwave oven

Normally 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.

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

Loose bottom hinge - slide the microwave to the edge of the counter, and look at the bottom hinge - you may have to remove something to see clearly. Its likely you are missing a screw or the screws have worked themselves loose.

Loose microwave handle


The handle screws are installed from inside the door, so it would be necessary to disassemble the door to tighten them. You have to decide whether the time and labor involved are worth it.

Yes, you're right about the screws. The inner door is held by clips. Just pop it out using a butter knife or something similar. You might need to remove the door from hinges first (It's been too long after I repaired one of these, so I don't remember exactly).

PLMV169 Door Handle


You can find an exploded view for model PLM168 (it's probably very similar) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 It looks like you'd have to gently pry out the choke cover (see attached photo) then you'll see the screws. When you reinstall the door handle screws, add a bit of thread locker or nail polish to secure them.
