Hello. If the screw hole is stripped, you can repair that by using some one minute epoxy and a wooden match stick to make the hole smaller. Just work quickly in this sequence:
1. force some epoxy into the hole.
2. put epoxy on the match stick and push it into the hole.
3. Break off the match stick so it is not too long
4. Align everything and drive the screw in to the repaired hole.
5. let it set up for a few minutes before using it. J.

Hadle broke on one sid of oven door, How do you take it apart to get the handle off.

You need to remove the door before you start dismantling the door. It is labor intensive and to hard to explain but here is a diagram that shows you the break down. Here is a video to point you in the general direction for the repair.

I have a kenmore and the oven handle is stripped the replacement is more then I can afford. The screws are from inside to outside. How can I fix this?

Stuff the screw holes in the handle full of metal-filled epoxy such as J-B Weld (use a toothpick or wood matchstick to push it in). After the epoxy is set, drill a hole in it about the same size as the screw shaft and tap new threads in it for the screws.

Note: if the screws are machine-type screws, you can make them self-tapping by using a triangle file to cut a notch in the threads parallel to the shaft of the screw, angled out so the notch ends about 1/4" from the end of the screw away from the head. If you have trouble envisioning what I just described, take a look at the fourth screw from the left in the drawing shown at this link. That is what you are trying to copy. When you tap the hole(s), turn the screw about 3/4 turn at a time, back up the screw about 1/4" turn and repeat. This will keep the threading chips from jamming up your work.

The handle on the bottom oven fell off. how do i reattach it?

I suppose the handle you are talking about, is the long, wide one, used to pull that oven door open, right? I personally do not have any experience with this particular oven-- However:

These handles are usually held on by a long screw at each end.
So-- when you look at the handle-- do you see where the screws should attach at each end?
And do you see matching holes thru the door-- where the handle was once attached?

Now: Where are the screws?
We know they were there at one time, right?
So-- can you open the door, and can you locate where the screws are now?
Once you locate the screws, can you hold the handle, and re- screw the screws ito the threads in the handle? You have the necessary tools? -- Screw driver and flash light?

When you examine things closely-- get back with us, and we can help you to your next step.

The door handle is broken where it screws to the oven door. The threads are stripped. How can the problem be fixed?

there are a number of ways...first, if you have enough room, you can try to drill and rethread the next screw size....if you dont have the room, then there is a kit called a consists of different drill sizes and little inserts that allow you to repair the threads that have stripped out...these kits are available at auto parts stores....if you wish to drill and re-tap the threads, then your local hardware store should be able to help you with the drill and tap sizes for the next screw size

Loose oven door handle

I had the same problem. We took the door off completely & turned it upside down. There are screws on the bottom of the door, take them out, take off bottom trim piece that holds the outside glass panel in place, remove glass panel and you can access the door handle screws and clean the inside of the glass while you are at it.

Whirlpool oven door

The metal bars go under the top door handle part, put them under the part you need to screw back in.
