The door handle on my microwave oven is giving me trouble.

Customer Question

Hi John, The door handle on my microwave oven is giving me trouble. When I go to open the door the bottom part of the handle comes away from the door. I have to hold the bottom of the handle with one hand and open the door with the other.

It sounds like the screw going into the bottom of the handle is loose or the handle receptacle on the handle is broken and the handle needs to be replaced. Below is a link to the handle for your unit.


As for how to take the door apart so you can get to the screws that hold the handle, below is a video that shows the process but the video does make it look a bit easier than the process actually is.
