Where can I buy replacement handles for Amway Queen cookware?


Hi Maggie...
You can purchase replacement handles on amazon/ebay/aliepres etc... but personally I prefer amazon (fast and secure shipping, with affordable prices). So click here Amazon com cookware handles and pick one (which fits to your Amway Queen cookware). Anyway before order, contact the seller to be sure.
I hope it was helpful
enjoy

I need to replace just the door handle on a Maytag Microwave (Model No. MMV4205BAS). All I've seen online for parts is a complete new door for anywhere from $220 to $300. Surely there is a cheaper...


The handles run about $25-35 here.

Here are the part numbers & descriptions:

W10279351 Black handle
W10279353 White handle
W10279355 Bisque handle

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

GE Handle replacement


The handle is part number WB15X335 and you can find it online from several sources. You can replace the handle alone. You do have to remove the door inner panel to get to the handle screws.
