Question and Answers

Q:

Remove and replace door handle on microwave oven

A:

Repair can be a do it yourself project for many kitchen appliances, but it becomes a bit trickier with a microwave. I located a previous expert post for this model and the advice is pretty much what I have always received. I attached the link below for you to check. I also added the link to Sears Home Services scheduler if you would like to go ahead and have an experienced technician make the repairs.

Thank you for your question.

Replacing a door handle on most appliances is no big deal but a microwave is not the usual appliance. Replacing the door handle is a repair that should only be completed by a service technician. Disassembling the door would involve removing the microwave shielding components. A technician will need to remove these parts, replace the handle, and then reassemble the door. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the door using proper testing equipment before the microwave can be safely returned to service.

I recommend calling a service technician to install the door handle. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

How do I install a new door handle Wb15x10070 on a GE microwave model SCA1000DWW03?

A:

I recommend a technician replace the handle on this microwave. The door is a critical component of the microwave and after any repair a radiation leak test must be preformed.

Microwaves are inherently dangerous to service. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any repair.

I recommend calling a service technician to repair this type of problem.
