    screw for handle (top screw) came all the way out and I can't figure out how to take off the panel to fix. I'm afraid to break the plastic trim-type inner panel.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Can the door handle on Maytag microwave MMV4205BAS be replaced or must the whole door be replaced?

  • FixYaPeter Apr 20, 2009

    Microwave door handle on Whirlpool MH1150XM-S1 broke. Got replacement for $30 :-0 Now I cannot figure out how to remove the plastic trim so that I can access the handle screws. I removed 3 screews on the side of the door near the two latches. Then I used a putty-like knife trying to free the trim. The trim slightly moves but will not come out. Any help is much appreciated.

Kenmore microwave model 721 loose door


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.

I got the screws off for the door handle on the ACO1860AS Microwave but the handle will still not come off. Is there another mechanisme or hidden screw that needs to come out?


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.

From the service manual:

Door Disassembly

1. Disconnect power to oven and remove oven door,
(see "Door Removal" procedure).

2. Pry away choke cover, by placing a tool in the upper
right corner of the door and gently prying outward on
the choke cover. Continue to work around the door
casing until choke cover is completely loose.

3. Slide latch assembly upward and to the left to
release plastic tabs from door frame. Once latch
assembly is loose the spring may be disconnected
from the door frame.

4. Remove screws securing door handle and door
frame to door panel.

5. Remove door frame by releasing tabs around entire
door panel.

Remove door handle by placing a hand on door panel
next to the top of the door handle. Twist door panel
towards the inside of door and pulling on the top
portion of the door handle in a quick jerking motion.

NOTE: When replacing door handle, the bottom portion
of the door handle must be inserted first.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

GE Spacemaker microwave model JVM130J - handle loose


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).

Handle broke and can't screw in the bottom screw of the new handle


bottom plate of the handle has a keyhole shape in the door-face of it
to go over a mushroom headed screw already secured in the door
tap the old broken handle down the door and it will pop off the screwhead
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

Microwave handle replacement


How to replace handle on GE Advantium SCA1001DSS.

Remove two screws on top at front in order to remove plastic front vent grill. Then the door lifts off pin hinges. Lay door flat on surface. Plastic trim snaps off with gentle prying (start at bottom middle and bottom hinge side). Then remove six screws holding notched metal section with door latch. This piece will also snap out (several visible clips holding it around edges). Then remove door handle screws, Replace handle and reverse process to put back together.

I have a GE Profile Microwave and the handle is broken....


I have the same issue. The Handle broke off my GE Microwave Oven (Model JVM1190SY 001). GE does not sell the handle seperately from what I can tell. I just ordered a new door. It's rediculously expensive. I tried to replace the handle with a nice drawer pull but couldn't find a size pull to match and I broke the plastic cover trying to get access to the screws for the handle, which is why I decided to buy the new door. Hopefully installation is not that difficult. This oven was manufactured in 2001, seems the handles have a 7 year life span.

Bottom screw on handle loose


All my micros had the screw go through the handle into the micro...no need to take door apart, just screw it back in. Why would you need to take the door apart?
