I purchased the fuse and 3 door switches from PartSelect. Replaced the fuse first but that did not solve the problem. Then I replaced the 3 door switches and problem solved!! So fuse only cost $5.00 so glad I have a new fuse in there as well. To see how to replace door switches see videos on utube!!

Because of it's age and my memory of it's wall installation problems, I was extremely happy to find the parts. Merely popped the old "fried " support bracket out, snapped it the two replacement brackets and I was back in business with a "new" spark free appliance. Thanks ever so much! Smooth, "no brainer" installation! Extremely pleased with results!

There were only two screws holding the door handle in place. The first is obvious but the second requires that you snap off the plastic window cover on the door. I only took it partially off using a butter knife to lift it. It snaps out easily.
Take out both screws which removes all parts of the old handle. Then just put in the new handle and use old screws to secure it in place. Except for removing the plastic cover, this was absolutely trivial.
$60 seems expensive for a plastic door handle, but it is cheaper than a new unit.

I loosened the screw that held the top of the handle onto the door of the microwave, and also removed the gasket on the inside of the door, exposing the bottom screw holding the lower end of the handle to the door. I removed the old handle parts and placed the new handle in the proper location, and then screwed the handle into place. I replaced the gasket, and I was done!
It was painless.

2 - Using a slotted screwdriver, remove the plastic gasket. This will expose the bottom screw.
3 - Remove the top and bottom screws of the handle
4 - Attach the new handle and put the plastic gasket back in place
5 - Enjoy the rest of your day!

The microwave door handle broke

  • Customer: Kenneth from Caledonia MI

The repair is simple. There was only one screw remaining to hold the handle and the screw is visible from the inside of the door. The second screw can be accessed by removing a piece of trim that goes around the inside of the glass. Remove that trim by carefully twisting the trim and sliding a thin knife into the inner edge. Once you see the first of the small clips the rest is easy.

Only complaint is that the microwave is only 10 years old and the part has two small extrusions for the screw. The price of the replacement is excessively high for what it is.

Thankfully I read someone else's report. I remove the top screw with ease and then pried off the cover surronding the glass panel enough to get access to the lower screw and removed it. Then I just screwed the screws back into the new handle and snapped the plastic covering back in place and "Bob's your uncle"
