removed visble screw. Then lifted the inside door rim around the glass to reveal the hidden screw. Removed that screw and replaced broken handle with new handle and screwed it in place. Replace part of rim that was lifted to reveal the hidden screw.
Opened door removed exposed screw inside the microwave door. Partially pryed out plastic liner and removed the second screw. Put new handle in place and replaced both screws. Pressed plastic liner back in place. 1-2-3 easy as pie.
I read some of the previous blogs on same problem. Followed same steps others took before me and I was done in 5 minutes! Opened the microwave door. Removed the top screw that was visible and then removed the ring around inside door frame by using a simple butter knife to get it going carefully. Removed the hidden screw on bottom of door . Replaced Handle, screwed in top and bottom , attached plastic seal around door by snapping it back in place. Done
Piece of cake. Removed plastic band on door to expose second screw. Loosened screws and attached new handle per comments on your website
Thankfully I read someone else's report. I remove the top screw with ease and then pried off the cover surronding the glass panel enough to get access to the lower screw and removed it. Then I just screwed the screws back into the new handle and snapped the plastic covering back in place and "Bob's your uncle"
There were only two screws holding the door handle in place. The first is obvious but the second requires that you snap off the plastic window cover on the door. I only took it partially off using a butter knife to lift it. It snaps out easily.Take out both screws which removes all parts of the old handle. Then just put in the new handle and use old screws to secure it in place. Except for removing the plastic cover, this was absolutely trivial.$60 seems expensive for a plastic door handle, but it is cheaper than a new unit.
Just as those before me have described, it was very simple. Just open the microwave oven door, gently pry off the plastic ring (note: don't try to operate microwave without ring in place as it will not work), remove the existing screws, replace with new handle, screws, and finally ring which snaps back into place. The most troubling part of the repair, was the cost of the handle. At $60 plus international banking fees, they really have you over a barrell. But I suppose better than the cost of a replacement microwave.
First I removed the top screw which is visible when you open the door. Other screw is hidded under the plastic lining (don't know exact part name). I removed the lining with knitchen knife and unscrew the other screw also. And put the new handle in place.
The repair is simple. There was only one screw remaining to hold the handle and the screw is visible from the inside of the door. The second screw can be accessed by removing a piece of trim that goes around the inside of the glass. Remove that trim by carefully twisting the trim and sliding a thin knife into the inner edge. Once you see the first of the small clips the rest is easy.Only complaint is that the microwave is only 10 years old and the part has two small extrusions for the screw. The price of the replacement is excessively high for what it is.
1 - Open the microwave door and locate the plastic gasket that goes all around the inside of the door (just around the glass)2 - Using a slotted screwdriver, remove the plastic gasket. This will expose the bottom screw. 3 - Remove the top and bottom screws of the handle4 - Attach the new handle and put the plastic gasket back in place5 - Enjoy the rest of your day!
Remove upper handle screw. This is accessible on the inside surface of the door.Remove inside trim piece that surrounds door glass. It prys off easily.With trim off, lower screw is accessible. Remove lower screw.Align new door handle with holes in door and replace screws.Replace inside door trim (just snaps in place).
Had already reverse engineered the door and it's parts so when the repair parts got here I already knew how the parts fit together. Took me 15 minutes max without instructions.
3rd handle replaced,(glued first two together), and used an electric screw driver to put screws in tight this time. And you think that FORD has a better idea. Jeffery has a great idea... make it to break and get rid of repairmen. $65.00 for the part and shipping is way more than its worth...especially if they keep breaking.
1st I read what your other customers had done to repair their microwaves..And noticed the majority were women( I assumed).So not to be outdone,I pre-prepared my door for repair..I used the butterknife to open the seals around door(front and inside)removed bracket to locate were bottom screw sits,inserted screw and bracket,tightened a little to handle,inserted top screw to handle,tightened bottom screw all the way,closed all the seals,and tightened the top screw.New handle on in about 10 minutes.Thanks for your parts and the help I received form reading your other testimonials,
