First open the microwave door. On the back you will see a plastic part about 3/4 inch wide surrounding the glass in the door. I used a butter knife as suggested by other users to pry it off by slipping the knife along the outer edge and prying the part out. Being careful not to crack tabs. This exposes 2 screws on the handle. Remove screws. Next, pry out the metal surround shield in the same manner with butter knife. This exposes another set of 2 screws. Remove screws. Note which ones these are. Handle then comes off and you can replace new handle, insert 2 inner screws just removed, snap metal surround shield back in place, insert last 2 screws then snap plastic surrounding part back in place.
removed the inside cover (plastic) around the glass. removed the 2 screws inside the the panel.Snapped of the door panel and removed 2 more screws. Replaced the handle by screwing it in two places on the door panel. Snapped that panel back on to the door then placed the 2 screws back in to connect handle to an inside panel for sturdiness. Replaced the inside plastic modeling that surround the door carefully and then it was done. Removing all panels require caution because of ease in breaking them.
I followed advice posted here, and used the knife to pry apart the plastic front away from the door housing. I then had access to remove the 4 screws holding the handle in place. I then installed the new handle with the 4 screws. But one thing to look out for is to first screw in the outer 2 screws, then secure the front panel, and then screw in the 2 inner screws. Saved me lots of dough!
I gently removed the plastic outer cover of the door. I was able to remove two screws. I then removed the inside plastic cover, that allowed me to remove the two inner screws. I replaced the handle, screwed in the two inner screws. Replaced the inside plastic cover. After that I screwed in the two outer screws. The handle was secured. I then replaced the outer plastic cover. I was surprised at how easy I did it. It looked hard at first. I felt good about myself afterward, and save a lot of money.
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.
Removed Old Handle with minor difficulty, two screws came out easy other two had to drill out back plate to get to other two screws, after that, repair went fine.Took about an hour total time for repair, and sure saved alot of money!!
My repair did not go so well. The screws for the handle are hard to get to, but since my handle was already broken i just broke it off the rest of the way. The problem I had was getting the outer door frame off. It is snapped on , and when I tried to remove it the glass broke. I think after years of use the glass and outer frame got stuck together. I hope this helps in your repair.
took a screw driver and pride off plastic on inside of door. be carfule not to break it. only one of two screws that go into handle were visable. had to drill a hole in metal braket to get at second screw. you can just bend the metal braket back inorder to use drill. bend it back when done. took off handle and replaced it. snapped plastic piece I took off back in place and finished. ge told me i needed to replace whole door. which they nolonger stock and I could not find a whole door for my model on web. found handlw on this website and did it my self
I followed the exact details of one of your customers, removing the inner plate of the door, replacing the screwsthat were left inside, into the new handle. I was finished in a few minutes and thank the earlier pioneer for his help.I am a 75-year old grandmother and the help gave me the courage to try it. Very proud of myself.
First I figured out how to take the door apart to remove two hidden screws, once that was done it was easy to install the new part. The part came extremely fast and worked well. The picture with each part labeled helped too!
I watched a d.i.y. repair video on how to remove the inner liner of the door. Then removed the 4 screws and placed the new handle. Very easy.
Thanks to the person who previousley detailed how he drilled holes to access 2 hidden screws, that made my job so easy. Thank You.
Used butter knife to remove inner plastic strip to get to hidden screws. Dropped spring used on retaining hook to keep door closed, took 15 minutes to find. Had problem putting door back hinge supports. Had to remove fan cover and loosen top support to raise high enough to get door back on supports.
Removed inside cover then remove 2 screws so that outside cover can be removed so that you can access the 2 screws between the outside cover and the glass go slow small plastic tabs hold the covers on
