Q:

How to replace handle on whirlpool micro wave mod. #mh1140xmb0

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to replace the door handle on the microwave. It would seem like an easy repair.

There are restrictions on doing any repairs on microwaves with the door parts and any internal parts because microwaves are inherently dangerous to service. They contain high voltage internal component that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. A microwave shielding leakage test must be performed on any door repair with proper testing equipment following any internal component access or repair before the microwave can safely be returned to service. These are the reasons why I recommend that you have a service technician repair this microwave failure.

If order to gain access to the handle screws you would have to remove the friction fit inner door cover around the window.

Because this is part of the safety leakage area I recommend you have this done by a certified microwave technician.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
