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 order Samsung parts here.

How do you take the door off? I too have a broken handle and door...


If only the door handle is broken, it 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 door handle on this model has two parts (items 3 and 8). Depending on what is broken, you may only need to order one or the other. Both parts, combined, is still only about $20. The part numbers are WB15X10119 and WB15X10120, respectively.


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.


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

I need a new door for this microwave. I have been looking online for hours and can't find just the door. Can anybody give me a website that sells just the door for this micro? Thanks....


The door is available at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, the part number for the ENTIRE door is WB56X10585.

Is there a reason for replacing the entire door? You can purchase individual replacement parts if only a single part on the door is broken. The first three sites on the list have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

The most common thing that fails on these doors is the door handle. If only the handle is broken, 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 averages about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.
The part numbers for the handle on this model are (2 pieces):

WB15X10119
WB15X10120

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

Will not heat and the truntable will not run


It's almost certainly the primary interlock (top door switch).

See this file for details on checking and replacing door switches.

You can also see the video at our site, which shows you how to access the door switches.

We have the service manual for the model SMH7178STE here, which should be pretty similar. It will also help you with disassembly.

My samsung SMH7187STG microwave handle broke off.


You can order new "cap handles" (the plastic parts that join the aluminum handle to the door for 3.99 each plus 8.99 shipping and handling at the Sears Parts Direct Website. The part number is DE67-00222C. When you have the parts in hand, open the microwave oven door. On the inside surface of the door their is a black plastic frame around the door that pops off easily (gently use a screw driver to pry up the door frame) so that you can have access to the screws that attach the end caps to the door. You will need to hold the remant of the cap handle (the part that is probably broken off even with the glass surface on the outside side of the door) still while you unscrew the screws. Once the screws and broken remnant of the handle caps are out, you are ready to put new handle caps on the handle, then put the handle with the new handle caps on the door. By the way, Samsung was absolutely NO help with this. The agent I chatted with denied that their were any reports of the handles breaking off, so I had to cut and past the postings about the door handle breaking off ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE under "Community Q and A" into the chat box -- still the agent did not acknowldege the existance of these reports...or the possibility of a poor design. I asked for them to send me a couple of the $4 parts as a good will gesture....got nothing but lofty words about Samsung commitment etc. and only a authorized technition blah blah, no action. All you need is a strong thumbnail, a phillips head screw driver, new handle caps.
