I have a counter saver Hotpoint Microwave Model# R VM125K 004 and the door handle has come loose on it. How do I take the door off to tighten it?
Usually there is a plastic strip all the way around the door on the inside outer edge ,this snaps off. And you can get at handle screws after strip or trim piece is off. Let me check model but I believe that’s the way you get at screws.
This seems to be the model you take off outer trim piece. Click on this link and you can bring up diagrams of door. The part you have to remove is part # ***** on diagram. Just get a small screwdriver and put it under trim and pry out easy and it should unstrap all the way around. Be careful though not to break it so it will go back on. www.pcappliancerepair.com and put your model in then go to diagram 178001 and scroll down to see door assembly.
