Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

My mother has a Ekcoware stainless steel pan, approx 6 in. in diameter and approx. 4 in. deep. It has a "Thick Copper Bottom" as listed on the bottom of the pan. The problem is this: The handle broke off several years ago but I can't convince her to throw it away. In the condition it is in, with no handle, I'm afraid she's going to drop it and burn herself with the contents. Can I find a replacement handle for this pan?

Sorry, but the subject lines get cut off after so many characters.

Thanks for replying.

Part # DE63-00204A looks like a valid Samsung part number but it doesn't show up anywhere, so it's likely a proprietary part made only for GE and not available separately.

You can see a helpful exploded view of this model here.

Then you can go here and enter your model number and come up with the parts list. This site has much better prices than GE.

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

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

Chances are you will end up having to but more than you want to, but not the whole door.

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

SOURCE: the handle on my maytag microwave oven broke off

The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.

This is not difficult. 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.

Replacement parts can be found at any of the following sites:

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

I hope this helps you.

Can you use metal pan if only on convection setting?


Microwaves penetrate most materials except metals which offer a ready path to the internal surfaces, so you would expect to see occasional flash overs using a metal pan, sudden surges like this will shorten the life of the magnetron.

You need a "nut driver" -- probably either 3/16, 1/4, or 5/16 ". If you have one of those 5-in-1 screwdrivers you see at shopping counters almost everywhere these days, one of the nut drivers on it will probably fit.

I have a new induction cook top. When using for the first time I found an F or P appeared next to the element I was using. I have bought stainless steel cookware specifically to use. The user manual...


Stainless steel (or Aluminium) cookware will not normally work with an Induction cooker: Induction cooker need cookware that have a certain amount of metal especially at the bottom of the pot or pan.

An easy way to check if the cookware is suitable is to use a small (fridge) magnet: if it stick to the pot/pan then it is very likely that the pot/pan is suitable for induction 'magnetic' cooking!

Hope my small hint is of assistance and if so, vote accordigly!

This model does not list Stainless Steel as a feature. Stainless Steel is used in the interior (CAVITY) of a Microwave if it is a Combination Convection/Microwave Oven. The Convection Oven can reach temperatures of 400+ degreesF. This Temperature would MELT the paint off a painted interior.
Stainless Steel can be tested with a Magnet. It will not be attracted or "Stick" to Stainless.
Hope this answers your concerns!
Thanks!
