    I have replaced 4 handles on my GE Advatium 120 microwave oven. The model number is SCA1001FSS01. I have asked GE if there was some sort of design problem with these handles. The part where the handle attaches to the door is a plastic piece that is very narrow. I do not abuse the door and open and close with just enough force to open and close the door. Are there any handles out there with metal at instead of plastic that will fit this model?

    Door handle for GE SCA1001FSS01 has been replaced on four separate occasions, Seem's to happen on a yearly basis. Only once has GE tech replaced entire door. Must be some kind of design flaw.

    I have the same problem. The lower part of the handle is broken. The unit has not been abused but the bottom piece is broken. My mother has the same unit and the exact same thing happened to hers. GE sent a new door but once again the handle is broken at the bottom connection. I called GE and they told me to replace the handle. this is definitely a design flaw. The door handle is about $98.00. I am afraid that by taking the door apart to replace the handle the whole door will be damaged.

    ditto on the door handle breaking. Getting to the bottom screw is a trick. I can get the door off the oven, get the first cover off revealing the top screw, but the bottom screw is neatly hidden. I too am afraid to go further for fear of damaging the door further. Several of the little plastic clips that help attach the cover are already broken from removal of the  cover.

    I also have the sca1001fss001 Advantium and the handle broke off about 6 months ago. The handle and and spring latch assembly can be ordered from ge site directly. Just trying to pry door open. Poor design. Any idea of how to remove baked on grease from interior?

  • rjrromeis May 11, 2010

    this solution only gets part of the job done. Getting the door gasket off reveals the top screw only. The bottom screw is still hidden. When the six screws are removed from the part hiding the bottom screw, you still cannot access the door handle screw. Getting the latch assembly off and then back on again is risky to the inexperienced.

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.

Hi ,

There is a inner door trim on the inside of the microwave door that can come off to expose the screws for the handle. This trim is held in place by clips built into the trim, ( some older models may also have screws - look for them and remove before going any further ) the tabs on this trim can break easily but with a putty knife and some patience, the trim can be removed to get at the handle screws. See picture help. This trim can be pushed so the clips will "pop" back into place after the handle repair.

The door handle broke off my GE microwave


Actually the door handle CAN be replaced at a cost much less than pruchasing an entire new microwave oven. And, YOU can repair this yourself and save the cost of a service call. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement

If the model number is correct, the part number is WB15X322. The cost is about $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different than the one listed, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you

I have a GE Profile Microwave and the handle is broken....


I have the same issue. The Handle broke off my GE Microwave Oven (Model JVM1190SY 001). GE does not sell the handle seperately from what I can tell. I just ordered a new door. It's rediculously expensive. I tried to replace the handle with a nice drawer pull but couldn't find a size pull to match and I broke the plastic cover trying to get access to the screws for the handle, which is why I decided to buy the new door. Hopefully installation is not that difficult. This oven was manufactured in 2001, seems the handles have a 7 year life span.

Check out this door frame diagram, specifically number 1805. It clips on to the door frame. Remove it using a dull table knife or something similar (be careful not to scratch or break anything). You will then have access to the bottom screw.
