Removed the broken handle and replaced it with absolutely no problem. We thank you so much for having the part as we were sure we would have to buy a replacement microwave. This microwave was put into custom cabinetry so it was so great to be able to just purchase the handle!!!!!!!!

Two screws had to be removed. One exposed with microwave door open. The other screw is hidden behind a plastic band around the perimeter of the door. Using a thin bladed knife I pried out the band all around the entire door. It comes out easily. This exposes the second screw to be removed. Then replace the door handle with both screws and press plastic band into place.

Handle broke after 5 yrs of normal use.

1. I removed the top handle screw on the inside of the door (visible)
2. I removed the plastic seal from around the glass window on the inside of the door (pried out with screw driver; comes out easily)
3. I removed the lower handle screw on the inside of the door (hidden under the plastic seal)
4. Replaced the handle and screws
5. Re-installed the plastic seal
6. Door works like new.

I wasn't thrilled with the $65 cost (although PartSelect had the best price) but the ease of installation made me wish I had done it years ago. The buyer experience was OUTSTANDING. No problems. Rapid delivery.

THANKS!

The door handle broke and required replacement.

The handle is attached with two screws. The top screw is located on the inside of the door and is visible and unobstructed. The bottom screw however, is not visible, but is almost directly below the top screw. It is located behind a 1/2 inch wide plastic retainer that runs around the inside of the door. Simply pry the retainer from the inside of the door enough to access the screw. This would be the lower left corner of the retainer when looking at it from the inside of the door. I used a kitchen knife to pry the retainer loose and a phillips screw driver to remove the screws. The process is simple and takes about five minutes.

Above the stove mounted microwave. I dropped the lens cover from under the bulb and tried to remove the bulb. The bulb separated from the base. I tried to remove the base with a pliers and the lamp socket broke. I ordered the parts and dropped the bottom cover of the unit down (5 screws). Removed 1 screww from the lamp socket, unplugged the wires and took it out. Simply replaced socket, fastened bottom cover of microwave, installed new bulb and closed lens cover.

Noted on partselect.com that someone else with this problem, found it to be secondary door switch. There are three door switches in this model, but online info noted that one of the three might feel "soft" (in my case, one switch clicked in a rather "jiggly" way, the other two were strong decisive clicks.) To access the door switches on this model was the only difficult part. First use a torx bit to remove the two torx screws below the latches inside the microwave. This frees the latching part inside, that holds the door switches, which you will remove after you take off the control panel. The top grill has to come off before you can remove the door panel. Remove the screws above the grill, on the microwave top cover, The grill on this model is covered with a panel that moves out when it vents. After removing the two top screws, the covered grill vent slides left to remove. Be careful, as the sliding tabs are plastic. Wiggle and jiggle it, to slip it off. Below the removed grill, is a small metal grill with one screw in lower center. Remove that screw, and wiggle that out. You'll then see the one screw that holds on the control panel. Remove this screw, and lift the control panel up to remove. Again, go slowly and gently, as the bottom tabs holding the control panel in, are also plastic and easily broken. Lay the control panel on something, (I used the coffee maker) and pull out the wire bundles tucked on the left, that are attached to the latching panel. Wiggle the latching panel gently to lift it up off of it's plastic tabs and pull it out towards you, so you can see the three door switches. Each switch (part number WB24X829) has a little black switch on it. Feel each switch with either your finger, or a screwdriver to see which one doesn't "click" strongly. The weak one is the one you will replace. The door switches are fitted into a tab, and plugged into their wires. Remove the defective switch, pull out the wires, and replace it with the new switch, plugging back the wires, and slipping it back into it's plastic tabs. Then put everything back together in reverse order. The entire job took me fifteen minutes EXCEPT for figuring out how to slide off the upper grill, which I have told you. A repairman would have cost $150, the part was $18. AND, there's a good chance, the other two switches will get "used up" in the next year or so as well, so I'll be ready next time. Thank you, Partselect, why work all day, to make money, only to give it to somebody else, for fifteen minutes of work. All I needed was the knowledge.

Door handle broke at lower screw.

First I used a flat screwdriver to ply loose the gasket inside the door that holds the glass in place - just the half nearest the handle. You don't need to fully remove the gasket (this would let the glass fall out), just enough to expose the lower screw holding the handle. I removed both screws (Phillips head) holding the old handle and removed it. I replaced it with the new handle and attached the screws on the inside. Hand tighten until there is no movement of the handle. The gasket can be pushed and will snap into place.

The bottom of the handle broke away from the door.

I removed the top screw which is visible, and then by removing the plastic trim around the outer edge of the glass with a knife blade, I exposed the lower screw and removed it. I then replaced the broken handle with the new one and screwed it to the door. I then just as easily snapped the trim back in place.

Unplugged the microwave first, then removed the screws that hold the cover in place. This gives easy access to the socket. Remove the screws that hold the socket in, unplug old socket, replace with new one and you are back in the light again.

bulb had broken off in base that was still screwed into socket

  • Customer: william from san antonio TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

At first I tried to use pliers to unscrew the base,very uncomfortable working position,upside down and backwards(the microwave is installed over the range top)very limited space for your body and arms to manuver and you really cant see the base,all of this took place after the breaker was turned off ofcourse,finally figured out that you can drop the entire bottom housing of the microwave by unscrewing 6 screws and the light sockets are easily accessable once you lower it,take out 1 retaining screw ,remove the entire socket and unscrewed the broken base and replaced the bulbs,I said bulbs,there is no sense in having to replace another bulb in who knows how long since only one had burned out but they were both the same age
