CustomerJanet from BEDMINSTER, NJ

The handle broke off the door of the microwave

Removed the broken handle and replaced it with absolutely no problem. We thank you so much for having the part as we were sure we would have to buy a replacement microwave. This microwave was put into custom cabinetry so it was so great to be able to just purchase the handle!!!!!!!!

CustomerJohn from Mount Pleasant, SC

Handle broke where attached by screw

Two screws had to be removed. One exposed with microwave door open. The other screw is hidden behind a plastic band around the perimeter of the door. Using a thin bladed knife I pried out the band all around the entire door. It comes out easily. This exposes the second screw to be removed. Then replace the door handle with both screws and press plastic band into place.

CustomerJeffrey from Charelston, SC

Handle broke after 5 yrs of normal use.

1. I removed the top handle screw on the inside of the door (visible)
2. I removed the plastic seal from around the glass window on the inside of the door (pried out with screw driver; comes out easily)
3. I removed the lower handle screw on the inside of the door (hidden under the plastic seal)
4. Replaced the handle and screws
5. Re-installed the plastic seal
6. Door works like new.

I wasn't thrilled with the $65 cost (although PartSelect had the best price) but the ease of installation made me wish I had done it years ago. The buyer experience was OUTSTANDING. No problems. Rapid delivery.

THANKS!

CustomerMichael from Gloucester, VA

The door handle broke and required replacement.

The handle is attached with two screws. The top screw is located on the inside of the door and is visible and unobstructed. The bottom screw however, is not visible, but is almost directly below the top screw. It is located behind a 1/2 inch wide plastic retainer that runs around the inside of the door. Simply pry the retainer from the inside of the door enough to access the screw. This would be the lower left corner of the retainer when looking at it from the inside of the door. I used a kitchen knife to pry the retainer loose and a phillips screw driver to remove the screws. The process is simple and takes about five minutes.
