A similar model's service manual can be found here, and that will help you with disassembly.

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

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.

Uninstall Frigidaire FMV156EMA over range microwave?


If you have removed the bolts in the cabinet above, the unit is hanging down on the range. All you need to do is get a helper and lift the front edge a little bit and then lift the edge at the wall up about an inch and lift it off.

Handle broke off, model # khhs179Lss-4, wna to


The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.
If you have not purchased a new door handle yet, the part number is 8205431 (White), 8205433 (Black), 8205432 (Biscuit) or 8185456 (Stainless). A new one can be purchased at pcappliancerepair.com for about $40-46. Make sure you order using the correct part number to ensure you get the right color.

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.

This repair can be done with the door in place, or you can remove it for easier access. If you decide the remove the door, simply open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Some doors have a small hinge pin that has to be removed in order to remove the door.

Replacing Handle on GE Microwave # JVM2070CH02


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.

Our handle broke off our GE Profile Spacemaker Oven


You can easily perform this repair on your own and save the cost of labor charges and a service fee. Go to appliancepartspros.com and type in the model number you provided. The door handle is located under Section 1 as item number 1801. Make sure you order the correct color.

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.

How do you change interior 20 w lamp?


remove the 3 screws on the vent above the door. Next unplug the oven from the power source.Next you will see a single silver screw above the control panel..remove it and slide the control panel upward and out. This will give you access to the lamp socket...turn it left or right and pull slightly ...you can now unscrew and replace the bulb....It was my exp that the lamp got loose in the socket from slamming the door after about a year, and I only had to tighten the bulb..Hope this solves the problem...Jerry

Broken handle


Almost all microwave ovens manufacturers locate the handle mounting screws behind the inner black plastic frame known as the 'choke'. If done very carefully, the choke can be removed with a putty knife without breaking it. My suggestion would be to order a handle and a choke. HOWEVER ordering a complete door will be less aggravation and not a lot more money. The handle and choke will cost around $120.00 whereas a complete door goes for around $130.00. Check out www.searspartsdirect.com for more detail.
