Thanks to your website, the repair was very easy. The handle was attached by 2 screws- 1 on the inside of the door at the top outer edge and the other screw is under the white rubber that goes around the glass of the window. I pried the rubber out enough to get at the screw and once the new handle was in place the rubber snapped in very easily.Thanks for the very quick service and reasonable price.
Removed the screw holding the handle at the top. Pried up the seal around the glass to expose the srew at the bottom. Removed it. Placed the new handle in place, attached it with the two screws, snapped the seal back in place. DONE
I removed the screw at the top that was exposed, but I couldn't figure out how to get to the second screw that was obviously holding the bottom of the handle in place. After a few minutes, I discovered that a plastic grommet on the inside of the microwave door was removable and allowed me access to the second screw. Once it was removed, putting the new handle in place was easy!
The repair hint on prying out the inner seal on the door for access to the second door mounting screw made the repair easy. Total time to replace the handle less then two minutes.
The repair was so easy. I removed the one remaining screw, pulled out the rubber gasket, screwed in the new handle, replaced the gasket around the window and that's it. I swear it took less than 10 minutes.
Took a while to get around to ordering the part, which was beginning to drive my wife crazy, so I ordered the part without saying a word. The handle arrived within two days and I had the part installed within 10 minutes of opening the package, it was really easy. So, I had to trick her into opening the oven and it completely surprised her that it was done so quickly without her knowing a thing about it. Great service, thanks!
removed gasket inside door, removed 2 screws, pulled handle off, put new handle in place, put the 2 screws back onto handle, replaced gasket. finished.
Two screws had to be removed. One exposed, the other was underneath the plastic band. Use a butter knife or thin flathead screwdriver to remove plastic band. Remove both screws and replace broken handle with new handle. Re-attach the plastic band. this very easy. My suggestion to eliminate breaking this handle at the bottom, is to grip this handle firmly at the top, when opening the microwave door.
1) Opened the door and removed inner face frame. Removed the two screws for handle, slid out the end slid out the glass. Snapped the parts inplace re-installed the glass, screwed in new handle and done! Easy deal!
Other descriptions accurately describe how to replace the handle.
unscrewed the screws on the inside of the door. Handle came off and put new one on.
I easily removed gasket that retains microwave door glass just tilkl I had visibility of bottom screw and un screwed the non-visible screw and screwed bottom portion of handle and tightened both top and bottom screws, applied gasket back and completed job in less than 5 minutes.
very simple just removed the plastic around the inside of the door remove 2 screws remove old handle install new handle replace the 2 screws and the plastic around the inside of the door
Because of a previous repair story about the ease of repair of a broken door handle, I ordered the part and repaired it my self, saving the repair charge
