I was really delighted that parts are still offered for this model microwave oven, also know as "time master"

The plastic plunger broke and as long as I had it apart I replaced all plastic pieces associated with the door handle assembly. The door handle had plastic forms for the screws to go into. these plastic forms were also cracked and unusable.

The problem was all due to old brittle plastic failing. The repair was easy and was completed in no time.
