SOURCE: The handle broke on my microwave. How do I remove

The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.

To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

This repair can be done with the door in place, or you can remove it for easier access. If you decide the remove the door, simply open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

Why does the light / safety switch stay on when the door latches shut ?


Most likely there is a part missing from the door latch mechanism that you need. This probably broke off when the handle failed. It would be a tab or wedge shaped piece of plastic that strikes the door switch and pushes the switch closed when the door is completely shut. You will need to find that piece and glue it back on or get a new handle assembly from Samsung.

How do I remove crazy glue from control panel? The cover over the plus control(to raise oven temperature) was coming off so I thought I would glue it back on! Bad idea ....now that control remains...


Not to much can repair / remove the crazy type glues once they are applied to plastics and plastic overlays. Some people attemp to use these not knowing that some types of plastic will not bond. most of the solvents that can desolve the glues will also damage the panels.

How to repair cracked plastic rim on outside of door? Is it safe to use crazy glue?


Yes, crazy glue is safe -- suggest letting it dry 24 hours before using oven. The heat could generate eye-watering fumes.

Door Handle


If at all possible try getting an exploded image break down to see what needs to happen, basically you have two things in your way one is the "choke"...the large black rectangle on the inside of the door this has to be pryed off carefully all the way around and lifted off, pocket knife works great to get it started. next you will have the front door assembly snapped onto the mesh screen and frame of the door itself. Once you have seperated the front door you will see the screws for the handle, DONT OVERTIGHTEN these screws when you reinstall.

Kenmore microwave oven handle came off


You will need a new handle, and you can probably find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

We do not recommend removing the door unless it's absolutely necessary.

Broken handle


1) Have to remove the door first; top of the oven there are two screws closest to the door, take those out. and the door should lift out
2) flip the door on the table with the handle side down. starting on the handle side there are three clips (top, middle, and bottom) between the outside casing and inside trim. Using a thin screwdriver gently twist starting at either the top or bottom to pod the two casings apart. work your way around the door.
3) You should see one of the screws that hold the handle on (top) but the bottom screw is under the metal casing so you need to remove the screws around this casing as well to get the other handle screw off.
Once you start you will see it isn't as bad as this sounds. I bought the handle for $40.
It is a shame that this is so cheap and breaks off this easily. Surprisingly we have had ours for at least 6 years before the handle broke and we have 3 girls opening and closing this all the time so I guess I was one of the lucky ones.
Hope this helps and good luck
