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.

If you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking out of the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

SOURCE: The door handle on my GE spacemaker xl 1400

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 (if required) usually runs about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided. Several of these sites also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with parts identification and how disasemble/reassemble your appliance.


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.


NOTE: If you wish to remove the door, all you need to do on most models is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. You may have to remove the grille cover located above the door on some models to accommodate being able to lift the door.


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

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

Cannot remove handle to replace it.  The handle broke on top.


You must pry out the plastic strip that surrounds the window on the inside of the door to reach the top screw that holds on the handle. Be prepared to spend a pretty penny on the replacement handle as well.
