Door handle sheared off the microwave

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The handle had been glued on previously, and broke off when I grabbed it. The glue had traveled into the holes where the plastic extends into the door for the screws to grab, so getting the screws and broken phalanges out was not easy. Using needle nosed pliers and an awl to scrape out the old glue worked, but it took some time.
Once I was able to get the screws loose and pop out the broken bits, the new part fit perfectly and is working like new.

Original handle had sheared off at the face of the door.

  • Customer: David from League City, TX

I had to use a pair of needle nose pliers to hold the threaded plastic remnants of the original handle steady, while I used a phillips head screw driver to back each screw out. This process required careful use of the pliers as they would slip, a LOT... But once the orignal pieces were out, the new handle went in perfectly. And just in time to start cooking Thanksgiving dinner!

Replaced the sockets, lens and bulbs. The first time the new bulb was touching the lens and the heat broke the lens and burnt out the bulb. The second time I adjusted the socket so that the bulb does not touch the lens.

Impressed by how quickly the parts arrived after the order was submitted. Two days.

Thank you.

Broken Microwave Door Handle

  • Customer: Charles from Westmont, NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

The part arrived very quickly - within three days of my order. It was a little challenging to get the broken handle off - you have to hold the plastic screw inserts with pliers or another screwdriver to prevent the screws from just spinning in place. Once secured from spinning, I was able to remove the two screws that attach the handle to the microwave door. The new part went on easily, but the fit of the new handle was snug and the screws a little difficult to drive. It helps if you push on the handle to keep it tight as you drive the screws. The entire repair was completed within five minutes and the microwave was "back in business". This repair can be easily completed by someone with little mechanical ability.

Underneath Light On Microwave Would Not Come On.

My son=law did repair because I am elderly and it was necesary to remove the bottom plate of the microwave which I was unable to do. The microwave was installed in 1987 and I believe this was the first time to replace the bulbs. When my son removed them the bulb was diintergrated. That's how old they were. Once he was able to remove the underneath plate the repair was easy except for removing the old bulbs. I think that I could have done it myself but he was available and I am sure it was done much better. All in all the parts)bulbs) were correct and everything is workiin fine. This is a good place to order replacement parts. In fact I am going to order a new charcoal filter. He took the label off the old one and I am ordering the replacement. After all 1987 may have been a good year, but time for a new one. Mary

BURNED OUT (and broken) LIGHT BULB

With many thanks to those who posted their experience and advice replacing the bulb, I was able to remove 5 of the 6 screws holding the underside panel and remove the socket which contained the broken off base of the bulb and extract it with needle-nose pliers. I had broken off the glass portion of the bulb trying to unscrew it due to the awkward contortion of my wrist-hand-fingers trying to grip the bulb inside the tight recess the bulb is mounted in. After concluding that I needed more information, I did a web search for 'Hotpoint RVM1435' and found helpful advice at partselect.com telling me to drop the bottom panel. Good call! Thanks everyone!
