If your full model number (from the tag in or on the unit) is MMV5165BAs, then you'll have to replace the entire door.

If your model is one of these, the handle is available separately, with part numbers below:

MMV5165BAB14 or MMV5165BAB15 black part number W10189508

MMV5165BAS14 or MMV5165BAS15 stainless part number W10187840

MMV5165BAW15 or MMV5165BAW16 white part number W10189509

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.

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

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Broken handle on maytag stainless steel microwave. Do not wish to purchase complete door assy. Could possibly substitute a black handle. Model MMV5165BAS. Kindly advise


around the inner side of the door between the window and outer frame is a plastic shroud,by gentle prying it out using a flatblade screwdriver starting at the handle side working toward the hinge side it will pop off and the screws that hold the handle can be accessed and remove and replace the handle. to reinstall that shroud gentle push it in with your fingers
you can go to searspartsdirect and enter in your model number exactly as found in the mw cavity and order the part or perhaps look in your phone and find a appliance parts dist. in your area

The lower handle retainer is broke


If only the door handle is broken, it 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:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement


The average cost for a replacement handle usually runs about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.
If the model number is correct, this is a parts illustration of your oven door:

http://pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php

The door handle on this model has two parts (items 3 and 8). Depending on what is broken, you may only need to order one or the other. Both parts, combined, is still only about $20. The part numbers are WB15X10119 and WB15X10120, respectively.


The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or with the door removed. You do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.


If you have any questions, please post back with your and let me know. I hope this helps you

I need a new door for this microwave. I have been looking online for hours and can't find just the door. Can anybody give me a website that sells just the door for this micro? Thanks....


The door is available at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, the part number for the ENTIRE door is WB56X10585.

Is there a reason for replacing the entire door? You can purchase individual replacement parts if only a single part on the door is broken. The first three sites on the list have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

The most common thing that fails on these doors is the door handle. If only the handle is broken, 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:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement

The average cost for a replacement handle usually averages about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.
The part numbers for the handle on this model are (2 pieces):

WB15X10119
WB15X10120

If you have any questions, please post back with your and let me know. I hope this helps you

Maytag Microwave model MMV5165BAS. Doesn't heat


HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron)))
