You can easily perform this repair on your own and save the cost of labor charges and a service fee. Go to appliancepartspros.com and type in the model number you provided. The door handle is located under Section 1 as item number 1801. Make sure you order the correct color.

To access the door handle mounting screws, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to simply pry the plastic up and work your way gradually around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens 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.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

OOPS!

I meant to post that as a solution, not a clarification request, so it came out as one big blob paragraph (Thanks, FiyXa!)

Here it is again, but in readable form:


You have a failing membrane keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

It is part number WB27X10171 and while GE sells it for a whopping $115.50, you can get it for $90.58 here.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams via that link.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs, in this case
$90.58 plus $8.95 shipping for a total of $139.48.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Microwave hood combo model number

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

What stores in Ontario Canada carry Galaxy 64002 700 Watts Microwave Oven ?


Hello Passion,

The Galaxy microwave oven that you speak of was manufactured by Sears, Roebuck and Company. This brand of microwaves is no longer manufactured by Sears. Sears has went to a new model the MD series that you can purchase. However, if you are just looking for a few parts like the plate, manual, etc. the following website has parts and the manual http://www.hammerwall.com/Manuals/Galaxy/Description/721.64002/Galaxy%20Microwave%20Oven%20Manual/L0310102/

To locate a sears store close to you enter you postal code at the following web page http://www.sears.ca/store-locator

Is it possible to change the light bulb in the microwave?


It depends on the model number. You should check your owner's manual first.

If for some reason you don't have your manual, many are available online.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can download Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find many Kenmore manuals by entering your full model number at the
Sears Parts Direct Web site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.

Turntable on Kenmore Elite will not turn?


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

If you don't have your owner's manual, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

Replacing the outer frame on a kenmore microwave door.


It's really not too hard.

The first piece of advice would be not to remove the door from the oven or tamper with the hinges. The alignment of the hinges is important to prevent microwave leakage, which can lead to burns and damage.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

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

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

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
