Handle broke - second time in the three years we have owned the house.

  • Customer: Lawrence from Edmonds WA

The repair took only a few ;minutes. Unfortunately it was the second handle I have replaced in the three years we have owned the house. It's an obvious design or materials problem and I see no way of lessening the force needed to open the door. Otherwise the microwave works very well.

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.

handle on door broken

  • Customer: Sarita from Brooklyn NY
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I unscrewed the one screw holding the handle but had to use a plier on the other screw because the screw was stuck in a small piece of plastic that had broken off the handle so I held the plastic piece in place with the plier and turned the screw with the screwdriver and then it came right out
I then just screwed the two old screws right back in to the new handle and it was done!

First, I have to say I was amazed at how quickly we received the replacement part--it cam the next day and I didn't pay for extra shipping. Of course, this was a quick replacement part, since I only had to remove the two screws holding the old broken handle and install the new one. My husband couldn't believe it was already done the next day--we figured we wouldn't be able to open it for at least a week. Thanks! Also, it was easy to find the part on the website.

The picture on your site was very helpful. We couldn't find our manual and were not sure of a part number.
We got it in a few days and removed the screws from the old handle and put the new one on in 10 minutes or less.
Since it is a built in microwave you saved us the expense of purchasing a new one and the time involved to put it in.Thank you

Simply removed the screws from the broken handle and screwed on the new one. For under $40 my microwave is back to perfect. And I thought for sure I'd have to buy a new onel That would have been a waste of money, and since I'm all about not throughing away perfectly good items it's good for the environment too.

Super easy repair, getting the part was just as easy. I did a simple search with the model number and was able to verify that the part I was ordering was the correct one by using the many pictures and diagrams available.

Unable to do the repair. Called Parts Select to verify if handle was correct style for model #. It was correct. The top opening on the microwave door is definitely larger than the bottom opening.
