Handle broke on right side. I am attempting to remove and replace but job seems impossible without having to pay for an expensive service call. Is there an easy fix or is it as difficult as it seems. the model of our range is MER5755OAQ Thanks,Ed

    I purchased a new handle.The going price was in the 45 dollar range.To fix the handle the entire door must be removed I was told and the fix is difficult for an amateur.The costs for installation ranged from 57 dollars and as high as 130 dollars.

    I was told yo let a professional do the job. You would think Maytag could make a handle that would be easier to replace.Thanks for the help.

I believe your model number is actually MER5755QAQ. I could not find anything with the model number you provided. This is a Maytage range, correct? If you go to or, and type in the model number of your range, you can find a complete listing of parts available for your range. Both websites offer competitive pricing and can ship the part directly to you. The Sears website has some illustrated drawings of your range to make part location much easier. If you are talking about one of the control knobs, they are easily replaced and cost less than $10. Please post back and let me know if this is what you are looking for.

Uneven push arm?

If a button latch fails to engage, it often is due to a weak spring. Some wiggling action may get it to pop out; otherwise the part inside the handle will have to be accessed which could prove to be virtually impossible.

I cannot remove the dashboard components from my 2001 Jeep cherokee laredo to get to the heater core and evaporator.

this is not an easy job the steering column needs to be lowered ,passenger side airbag removed, center console removed, and if you are like me i don,t like being crowded so i opt to remove front seats before doing this job for added room when laying on back trying to remove nearly impossible hidden bolts and screws behind dash shell i guess what i,m trying to say is i have done around 50 or more of these at work in a shop enviroment with 25 plus years as mechanic and it,s difficult but not impossible i have been asked how to do numerous times and tell friends look this is one of those things that you would do yourself a favor buy paying a reputable auto shop to repair this without training and right info and tools you can cost yourself some serious expensive money quickly i,m not trying to discourage just save you some heartache not knowing alot about your sitiuation this is my best advice

How to install a pontiac G6 driver door handle. The handle broke off. I opened the door panel and retrieve the broken piece. Got a new door handle, but it seems impossible to install it without taking...

Yeah, you have to remove the lock. Use an impact drill with the right phillips head to remove the screws. if you try to take them out with a screw driver, you will strip them. Remember...impact drill.

2002 Nissan Altima Exterior Door Handle

I seriously doubt that supergluing or even epoxying a handle back will hold at all, or hold for more then few days.
I would only suggest doing the replacement yourself if you familiar with this type of work, or has the aptitude to figure out how to do it, and have the right tools because it is NOT trivial and a number of things can be done wrong, broken or scratched.
The handle itself cannot be replaced. The outside door handle assembly (which includes the handle, the bezel with all associated springs, plastic and metal hardware) has to be replaced. Besides junkyards, which is a long shot for number of reasons, the only place where the handle assembly can be bought is the dealer. And these handle assemblies are not cheap ether. The driver side handle on my 2002 Altima broke first. I paid $60.23+tax, and they had to order it. BEFORE anyone goes to the dealer I suggest to call first, and ask them if they have it in stock. Since door handles are sold painted they will ask you for your car's VIN number so that they match the paint color.
After you pick it up, the replacement will take about an hour (if you know what you doing). The inside door panel has to be removed, it is held in place by the inside door handle and the panel is attached by a number of clips, the handle assembly is attached to the door by three bolts, to remove which you will need a socket with extension. You will also need a good flashlight so you see what you are doing.
If you are familiar how to do this type of work and plan to keep the car for a while I strongly suggest buying a factory service manual on a CD (I bought mine on eBay for under $10). It is worth its price 1000s of times over, and makes almost ALL repair work SOOO much easier.751424a.jpg73e3811.jpgd240851.jpg

Maytag electric range door handle (how to replace?)

The above solution is fine, but you don't have to remove the door.  Open the storage drawer for access to the trim screws (3) on the bottom of the door, remove the screws.  Have a helper hold the glass along the bottom. Take the three screws on the top of the door trim out.  Slide out the glass and put in a safe place.  Remove the four screws that hold the handle brackets in place, remove the handle (or tighten if loose). Install the new handle (one screw on each side).  Reinstall all parts in the reverse order of disassembly.  The entire job took less than 30 minutes.
