Door handle broken on microwave.

Fortunately I had my handyman here to repair a leak under my kitchen sink and asked him to replace the handle on my microwave. There were no instructions included with the handle but I had printed out descriptions from the web site of what others had done. He pried off the inside of the door which revealed two screws, which he removed. He then had to pry off another covering which revealed the other two screws that removed the handle. He attached the new handle and put the two parts that were pried off back on. It would not be an easy process for the ordinary householder and it would have been nice if detailed instructions had come with the handle (with pictures showing exactly which areas of the door needed to be removed). I was going to try the repair myself but am extremely glad my handyman was there as I probably would have ruined the microwave and would have had to purchase a new one. Kudos to my handyman.

Once I read more on Partselect about how others had removed adjacent parts, I found it extremely easy. I had previously thought I would have to remove the microwave from the cabinet prior to repair, but once I looked at Partselect's expoded view of the microwave, it all became clear and took me longer to clean up than the actual repair.

Removed one screw, slid frame out and removed broken glass. replaced bulb. The hard part was slidding the frame back in place and starting the screw. We were very surprised at the fast delivery of the parts, thank you. The sad part, a few days later the glass broke again. We are trying to get to the people at GE to solve our problem. We feel like that will not happen, we just do not have the time to stay on hold on the phone waiting for someone to solve our problem. Will reorder glass.

Took the front panel off, played with the switch while it was plugged in to verify the switch was bad. I actually was able to tweak the switch just right to keep the microwave working while the part was being delivered. When it came it was just removing two small screws and replacing. Very easy.
