Customer Question
I have purchased a...

I have purchased a handle support for my GE microwave Model # JVM3160RF3SS. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to get to the screw that holds the handle support in place. The support is for the bottom of the handle. Can you tell me if this is something I can do or should I get a repairman?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The microwave was purchased in 2015. The model # is JVM3160RF3SS, the serial # is GG247541A.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I would like to.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No. I do have a GE repairman coming in a week or so to fix my range. I do not know if he could fix the microwave as well.

To access the screws holding the handle, you need to take the door apart. Below is a video that shows you how to take your door apart so you can unscrew the handle and replace it. If you're handy you can do this, but you'll need a putty knife or a flat head screwdriver to pry the door apart. There are no screws.
