Question and Answers

Q:

How do I install a new door handle on a Whirlpool Microwave Oven?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to replace the door handle yourself

I must warn you that 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 the unit using 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 the door handle screws are seen from the inside door panel you can replace the handle by loosening the screws and installing the new handle.

  • If you cannot see the screws the door choke will have to be removed and I would suggest that you have a technician repair the microwave handle for safety reasons.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Need to know what the error code on the microwave means

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The "F6" fault code means there is a microwave relay failure. This generally indicates an electronic control board failure.

Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as replacing fuses, can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME. We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future.
