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

That model number doesn't look right - you may want to check the tag again.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

How to replace door handle on whirlpool microwave model MH2155XPS-0


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. A replacement part number for the model you have listed is 8169738.


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.

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! :)

Door drops down 1/8' when open. To close need to


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, there is no adjustment. More than likely the door pivot and/or hinges are worn. They can easily be replaced, however. The part numbers are as follows:

Door Pivot - 8184922
Upper Door Hinge - W10114255
Lower Door Hinge - W10114254

You can find these parts at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the model number and locate items 6, 8, and 13 under the "Door Parts" heading.

If you have questions about this repair, or have a different model number, please post back and let me know so that I may be able to provide better assistance. I hope this helps you.

Door latch RECEPTACLES/locks on microwave cabinet, broken.


These interlock systems consist of the Interlock, Cam Plate, and Interlock Spring and you can find them listed and purchase them (if needed) here.

Enter your full model number (MH8150XJT0 or MH8150XJT1) and look on the "Interior and Ventilation" diagram for reference numbers 11, 12, and 13.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

Or you can get them there.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Does not heat food


It could be 3 problems. 1. the part that spits out the microwaves needs replacement, door hinge switch is broken, or circuit board need replacement. First check with Whirlpool and see if it is under warranty still. Call a repair man. See www.repairclinic.com .
