Our handle broke off completely

  • Customer: Cheryl from Fairview Heights IL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
The handle worked great, the only thing was that it didn't come with the screw for the handle and I thought it would. The part description was very vague. So we have the bottom part of the handle super-glued and found a scrap screw that we could use for the top. At least it was better than no handle.

Thanks much,
Cheri Morena

Handed the part to my son. He unscrewed 5 screws in the base of the microwave, it dropped down. The light mechanism was clearly in view. With the exception of some corrosion on the old piece, it was simple to remove and replace, put back together, screw back up and all worked fine.

Replaced turntable coupler by removing screws from bottom of microwave and reaching through to turntable motor. The screws were a little difficult to get to because of the proximity of the microwave to our oven.

I ended up breaking one bulb trying to remove a burnt bulb for replacement. We then tried removing the other bulb and it wouldn't come out either. I googled the problem and found PartSelect and an explaination of the problem. Heat from either the stove or the bulbs had fused the bulbs into the sockets. Comments on the problem explained that you just remove the bottome pannel (we had seven screws), unplug the old sockets, insert the new and new bulbs and reattach the panel. It was quick and no problems to correct. We did discover the microwave was on its own breaker, make sure to disconnect or cutoff power to the microwave before you start.

Once on your web site it gave me a skematic of my microwave which showed me how the parts connected. I saw how easy it was and I saw what type of bulb it was I ordered the parts and it took less than 15 minutes to repair. Thank you so much for your site, It is now on my favorites list. Doug

Door handle broke off

I first pulled the bottom left and left side inner 3/8th inch rounded liner out. Use a thin flat head screw driver to gently pry the inner trim piece out of place. This exposed the bottom screw. I pulled out the old 1/2 inch silver coarse thread screw. The top screw is obvious. Removed that. I had to replace the face plate which slid off. Replaced the new face plate then put in the new handle top male end then the bottom male end in the holes. I screwed in the top 1.5 inch browm fine thread screw. Don't over tighten, just go until snug. If you over tighten you may crack the plastic walls of the screw hole built into the handle. I then put the small screw in and tightened it. Then snap the trim piece back in place. Viola.......You are done

I had to figure out how to get one of the screws out because I could only see the head for one of them. I removed a strip of plastic that goes around the inside parameter of the door. With that removed I foud the other screw head. I removed the remaining screw and there you have it. Put it back together and your done. . The strip around the door just snapped on so that was easy. The big problem: I received the wrong door handle from PartSelect but they had the new handle at my door the very next day. I don't know haw they did that. From Kentucky to cocoa Florida in less than 24 hours. I may have ordered the wrong part but still my Microwave was broken for four days total. I know this sounds like an ad but I'm just happy with the service. Thanks PartSelect.
