I took the plastic off the inside of the door to replace the door handle and found two black plactic clips holding the screws in place.
Do I replace with the two screws and how do I remove the plastic clips?
Answer Hello Bill. 1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect
2. Open the microwave oven door.
3. Pry the choke cover away from the top
door pin, and remove the top pin from the
pivot bracket. Lift the door off the bottom
bracket, and remove it. 4. Place the oven door front side down on a
5. Remove the choke screws from the door
frame. 6. Starting at the top right corner, pry
the choke cover out with a putty knife,
and unsnap it from the choke. Only remove
the top, bottom and right sides of
the choke cover at this time. You will remove
the handle end of the choke cover
later. 7. Starting at the top edge of the door near
the center and working clockwise, use a
putty knife, and pry the latching tabs of
the choke out of the door frame slots. Lift
the choke as you release the tabs so they
do not snap back into the slots. NOTE:
When you reach the handle side of door,
pull both the choke and the choke cover
away from the door frame, and then separate
the two components. 8. To remove the door switch actuators from
the choke, remove the screw from each
actuator. REASSEMBLY NOTE: When you reinstall
the door on the oven, insert the top pin into
the pivot bracket and press down on the pin
until it snaps into place. Hope this helps.
I need help! I have the replacement handle AP4418092 (thanks for the quick shipping!) I have a picture diagram but I can't figure out how to get to the handle screws. I don't want to break anything.
Answer Hi Crystal. On the inside of the door, surrounding the glass is a black frame. This is called a "choke". Very carefully take a thin flst blade screwdriver adn remove this whole part. The screws should be accessible behind the door latch springs. Thank you.
