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

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) here that demonstrates how it's done.

You may use dinner or steak knifes, at least 12 of them, simultaneously directly over the engaging part to free the choke cover

SOURCE: Burned out bulb on Kitchen Aid Microwave Model KBMC140

You will need to remove the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download your owner's manual and installation instructions free from this page.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

These models use halogen lamps. You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

You should be able to get one from a home center or local appliance parts store.

If you order it online (from the link above) it is part # 4375348.

SOURCE: How do i replace door handle

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 part number for the model number you provided varies depending on color, so make sure you order the correct one for your oven. You can view an exploded view of your microwave door here:

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 and let me know. I hope this helps you

How to repair kitchen aid door springs


proceed according and fix it. God bless you

  1. Open leverCheck your microwave lever to determine if it is damaged. If it is broken, simply replace the lever to get your microwave door fully functional again.
  2. Door springResponsible for keeping downward pressure on the door hook, the microwave door spring can begin to malfunction. If this part is broken and prevents you from opening your microwave door, replacement is necessary.
  3. Door latchOne reason your microwave door may not open properly is a broken door latch. Located inside the microwave, the door latch manipulates the door hook to keep the door closed for safety and top performance. If broken, the door could become stuck in the locked position.
  4. Door hookIf your microwave door will not release properly, the door hook could be damaged. Located inside the door, the door hook is made of plastic and prone to breakage with extended use or age. As this part is unable to be repaired, the only option is to replace it.
  5. Button or button springIf the microwave door will not open, it could be an internal failure of the button or button spring. If it is determined that either of these parts is the source, both are replaceable and it is recommended that they be installed at the same time.
  6. Handle actuatorIf the microwave door will not open the plastic handle actuator could be broken. Connected between the door button and the door latch assembly, this plastic part could become damaged and brittle over time, which makes breaking inevitable. If this occurs, replace the handle actuator to get your microwave fully functional again.

I need to put a new door handle on a kitchen aid microwave. It is above the stove, the model number is khms155lss-4


The diagram can be found at
http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/W0601206-00002.png

Open the door all the way and lift it up (press on bottom of door) to lift the hinge pins out, then pull away from the unit (walk backward) to remove it.

Then, the remove the inner plastic shell from the outer plastic shell by prying gently around the outer shell. There are no screws holding it together.

Once apart, you can see the screw (item 8 in the drawing). You can remove the screw and replace the handle. reverse the process to get it together.

Make sure the door is all the way back in tightly and firmly just as it is now or you can have a microwave leak. Work carefull and, if you have a digital camera or a camera phone, take pictures of each step to make sure you know how it goes back together.

cheers.

How do i fix a broken microwave handle on a kitchen aid? model# KHMS155LSS0


Your handle can be purchased from Sears at the link below, part number 7 depending on your color and finish A - C for $36.18. You can also view the schematic for the door and based on the picture, you can see how to disassemble the door by removing screw (Part Number 8).

I need. To replace the handle for a kitchen aid microwave. I have the new part but it came with no instructions. I am afraid to do to break the microwave model# KHMS155L 0. Any one who knows where to...


Here's an exploded view of the door:


pgh_pa_guy_24.jpg

Item 10, the door panel, just snaps over the rest of the assembly. If you work slowly and carefully with a flat object like a putty knife, you can separate the door panel and take it off without damage. This will expose the screws (number 8) which hold the handle on. Then you just need to snap the door panel back into replace after you put on the new handle.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!
