I need to replace a broken handle on a spacemaker xl 1800 I have the handle, just don't know how to take the door apart to fix. Is there a website with directions for dummies :) Thanks


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.

Our GE Profile spacemaker 2.0 handle is broken. How can I change it?


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 runs about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

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 MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you

I have broken handle on the GE Spacemaker Model JVM130H. Can this be replaced and how?


The door handle can easily be replaced on most microwave ovens. You just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

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

The cost usually averages about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided. However, price and configuration of your oven also depends upon the MODEL NUMBER. If the model number is correct, the part number(s) for a replacement door handle is WB15X10119 and WB15X10120. The door handle on this model has two pieces.

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

Broken door handle


The in side door panel ( at total pain) must come off

If the damage to the bottom is not too bad.
On mine I took the cover for the handle loose from the bottom ( it pops off, but be careful).
and put screws at the bottom
