Installing handle FMV156DCC FRIGIDAIRE MICROWAVE/HOOD COMBO

by Manage My Life Last activity date:
August 26th, 2012

I ordered a replacement handle as ours has cracked at the base. I was told it was possible to repair myself when I used PartsDirect to find the part number. I cannot quite figure out how to remove the door to start this process. Any help?

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry someone said you could install the handle yourself. 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. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Please reply below if you need further assistance on the microwave.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

I understand you are experiencing difficulties with your Microwave. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. Door repairs and adjustments, even minor ones, can cause microwave leakage and a microwave shielding leakage test must be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service. This repair should be done only by a qualified service technician. I have provided a link To Sears Home Services if you decide to schedule service. It may be cost effective to just replace the unit, I have also provided a link to the Microwave section of Sears.com to price out what a replacement would cost.
