How to disassemble the door of gmh5205xvs-0


On the inside of the door there is a plastic frame that goes around the edge with 2 slots in it that the door latches go through. You have to very carefully pry the frame outward to remove it. First check with a parts supplier to see if your handle is available because some microwave doors are not repairable----you need to purchase a complete door. If the handle is available then attempt to remove the frame as I described before. Once the frame is off you should be able to see the handle screws. If they are still hidden the outer door frame and inner metal door will need to be separated also. They too just pry apart with plastic tabs holding everything together. Replace handle and reassemble. Not hard just time consuming and must be done carefully so as not to break the plastic parts.

Handle replacement


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:

This should be a very simple repair that you can easily perform yourself.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. You can refer to this illustration, if you like, to assist you as well:

How to install WB15X10022 GE Microwave Handle.


This is a generic answer

Open the door and look carefully for a plactic strip that may be covering screws. If none. look on the bottom edge or the edge with the hinge. Remember, someone had to assemble the door so there has to be some way to disassemble it. I have never seen one that can not be opened (glued, cemented or welded closed) Remember, most doors are spring loaded and may snap shut on you with the door partially removed. Also, keep in mind the process you went through to get it apart. You will have to reverse that process. You may want to take pics with your cell phone as you progress.

Once open (and you may need a 'Torx' tool to remove the screws), replacing the handle should be simple.

Let me know how you make out.

Door Handle snapped off


You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screw(s) you need to remove.

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.

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

Need to replace the handle I have the part but how do i desassemble the door properly


To access the door handle mounting screws, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to simply pry the plastic up and work your way gradually around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens 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.

then
set the new handle sideways on the door, top end out into empty space, and pull it into place on the screw head,
rotate the handle top over the door and screw it into place, dont flex the handle much to twist it in place, they are brittle, and break
