Kitchenaid Stainless Microwave Handel KHMS155LSS

Hi. I have the above microwave and the "stainless" looking plastic handle has rubbed off and is now almost white. I am looking for the replacement part but can't seem to find it. But better yet, is there another model that has a real stainless handle that I could somehow adapt to fit mine? The Kenmore Elite handle seems to have about the same measurements? Or maybe a newer model Kitchenaid? I feel another plastic one will just wear again in a year.

It's most likely a blown magnetron thermostat, but you should also check the fuse and the oven cavity thermostat.

There should be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

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

Accessing the thermostats for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Need installation instructions for replacing door handle on kitchenAid microwave oven model KHMSi55LSS0

Remov fan cover, bottom plate, you can either do it right and pull out the entire plastic baffle to reveal the hindge bolts or you can just jam something between just enough to get a long socket on a small socket wrench. You must replace the entire door. Trying to replace just handle is almost impossible.

Kithchenaid Microwave

You'll notice there are small clips holding the stainless outer door to the black metal inner door. Get a bunch of putty knives (butter knives work too) and work a knife into about every other clip. I did it on the bottom. Once you're sure all the bottom clips are free, and you've removed the three screws on the side of the door, you'll be able to gently pull the stainless outer door away from the black inner door and get to the handle screws.

I bent both doors in this process, and tore the black plastic liner into a few pieces while I was getting everything out, so I had to buy a new door ($200). Be careful.

Replacing door handle???????

gently pry the plastic from the inside working from the hinges to the corner. you will need to put something in place of the screwdriver when you pull it out to go to the next pry position (about every 2 inches. i use apex bits. you can use anything about the diameter of a cigarette. then the screws for the handle will be exposed . it all snaps back together.
