Question about GE JVM1653 Microwave Oven
Problem: Handle came off in my hand. The screw is still attached to the threading part of the handle which is hard to get to as it broke off at the door level meaning there is nothing to grab onto. I've tried everthing I can think of to grab it with so I can stop it from spinning as I loosen the screw from the back. Any suggestions would be helpful.
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 can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
