Visit the GE website to order a replacement or visit your appliance parts service center in your town. I'm sure they can order the part you need. Make sure you have all the particulars for either case.

A small crack is probably ok if you had a lot of leakage you will feel a tingle sensation in your hand if you are really worried take a small piece of foil and cover the crack that will prevent any radition from leaking, I used to repair microwave ovens and I know with the current models it is not possable for much to escape, unless there is a large hole I once serviced a commerial microwave that was used with most of the front glass missing, the user reported some tingling in his hand.

How do you take off a microwave door and put a new one on?


KHMS155LSS0 - May 27, 2017

On many models you can open the door all the way and gently lift it off.

Otherwise, you have to do some disassembly.

The support page for your model, with manuals, is here.

FixYa doesn't notify me when there's a response, so if you have other questions, please contact me directly.

Door cracked


Contact Whirlpool. Most stores won't sell a part like this, and if you get one from a repair center, it will either be a used door, or they will charge you an insane price for it. Most times, the manufacturer can get you parts at a cheaper price, or, if you're under warranty and the door just fell apart, they might be able to send you the door (or repair the whole thing themselves) for free!
They don't seem to have a phone number, but here's the email form to contact them: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/email_form.jsp


Good luck! :)

My over the oven model 665.61629100 kenmore has cracked door


The outer door frame CAN be replaced if you like. You can view an exploded view diagram at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and locate item 10 under the "Door" parts listing. The part comes in various colors so make sure you select the correct one.

The door can be easily removed by opening it all the way and lifting straight up at the hinges. The door will come off the hinge pins and can be laid on a flat surface for easier access. Place a layer of towels under the door to prevent damage to the door.

You will need to remove the door handle to get the outer door frame off. 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 may need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Remove the door handle and and locate any screws that may be securing the outer door (front) frame in place. Once you install the new outer door frame, re-install the door handle and carefully re-insert the inner door panel. Gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you have questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

To answer your initial question, the microwave should continue to be safe to use as long as the inner door seal and door glass are intact. Make absolutely sure you reinstall the door components back together properly. Not doing so will render the oven unsafe to use. Refer to the web site I provided as a reference for how the door components go back together.

NOTE: This part is listed a bit cheaper at appliancepartspros.com. Use the part number from the first website I mentioned as your search criteria.

How to replace MVP V CMV1000 Door Handle?


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.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Front vent fell off


This should be a very easy fix. I assume you are talking about the plastic vent grill on the top of the oven above the door. There should only be a couple of screws holding it in from the top. The grill then should tilt out from the top first then from the bottom to remove. Since you said that it had fallen off, it sounds like the tabs where the screw holes are have broken off. This is a common problem. You can buy the part by ordering from the manufacturer, or from most repair websites. All you need is the model number from the microwave. Good luck.

Broken Handle


On almost any microwave oven door if you open the door,on the inside part of the door,theres a square plate thats plastic that is a one piece unit that goes all the way around the edge of the door . That held on by little plastic clips that are molded right on the suround and easy to break, so take a small screw driver(of course the ovens unplugged by now) and start at one end and start prying it out inch by inch. Being care full not to crack it. If yop do crack it, you must replace it, but its not that expensive. Once you have off the cover surround, you will see the screws that hold on the handle. If you need help getting the part go to http://www.repairclinic.com as even if its not listed get the phone # and call them and they will assist you. Good Luck
