The paddle has stopped turning. after removing the paddle you can see that the spindle turns.

My guess is that the spindle is cracked at the bottom; it will turn by itself, but can not move the tray. You can check that by dropping the bottom plate (with the lights), and taking off the drive motor. It could also be the motor itself; it has very small plastic gears inside which break easy, especially if you put heavy things in the oven.

We have been delighted with our breakmaker until lately when the paddle stays inside the bread when we lift it out of the breadmaker. When we retrieve the paddle this leaves a large hole in the bottom...

You haven't stated the make and model, but your problem is entirely normal operation on most breadmakers. In your case it's likely to be due to some wear in whatever holds the paddle onto the shaft, but to determine the exact cause is impossible by remote diagnosis as it requires a physical examination of the parts, sorry.

Remote fault diagnosis has it's limitations, unfortunately.

LG RefrigeratorModel LFX25960ST - icemaker has been replaced once

Most ice maker heads cost less than $49 to replace if you get it at a wholesaler. The water quality going to it will effect how long it will last, Reverse Osmosis treated is the best, filters will help some but are not a cure. Your budget is the determining factor in this equation.

Samsung microwave door handle snapped off and I found replacement parts but How do I get to the back of the handle to replace it?

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.

Microwave broken door handle.

To replace MOST microwave oven door handles all you have to do is open the door and remove the inner plastic panel around the glass. This is accomplished by taking a small screwdriver and carefully inserting it along the perimeter to pop it loose (there are usually some grooves you can insert the screwdriver in).

NOTE: DO NOT pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and has an RF shield that protects the consumer from the microwaves being generated by the magnetron. Breaking it, requires a new door replacement.

With the panel removed, you will be able to access the screws that hold the handle in place. Once the new handle is in place, carefully reinsert the inner plastic panel by snapping it back in place all the way around the perimeter of the door glass.

If you have questions, or if your door is configured differently, please let me know. If you have the ability to send photos, that helps too. A model number may also be useful so I can identify how your door is assembled. I hope this helps you,
