Click here for the diagram

#2 clips onto the door frame. Using a table knife or something similar (nothing sharp) remove #2. This will expose a couple of #8 screws that hold the handle. Remove the screws. Put the new handle on and secure with screws. Put #2 back on. You should be good to go.

Let us know how it turns out...
Like the subject said - broke into 5 pieces Used butter knife - panel bends, cracks and breaks

Thumbs down MH1150xms-4

Looked at all the service manual postings - none match my unit. Now I have a still broken handle AND a destroyed inner trim panel. All the inner side pieces that go into the door sheered off by the tabs. Finally got all the pieces out. There are NO SCREWS for the handle or ANY screws holding in the inner panel/glass assy to get to the handle screws.

Looks like $100 in parts, $200 door (can't get access to the hinge screws - No torx visible) A service call for much more then parts or replace unit.

I am just so pleased - I should have just ignored the loose handle

I understand your feelings, but...what is the complete model number of your microwave?

Model number as listed on tag.: MH1150xms-4. I'm just going to pay for the service call -instead of breaking more parts.

Have you read the reply posted by TONY7666 from the previous page? He worked with the model very similar with yours and did not have nay problems.

Default Frigidaire Handle replacement

Hello there,
I have gone through this forum to learn about replacing frigidaire microwave handle and have seen pictures too.

I have managed to complete step #1 which is removing plastic type stuff around the edges of door (thanks to the great video). After that, I saw 2 screws and removed them too. After that I am kind of stuck as I don't know what to do next and can't see the screws holding the handle itself.

Please help me as this my 1st DIY stuff.

Thanks.

The model number you posted does not come up. Was it sold in US? Verify the model number.

Great video to get to handle screws on most models, thanks. Ordered today and will be ready to try this once part arrives. My Kitchen Aid model # KHMS155LSS4.

However, I've read some members still not seeing the handle screws or bottom screw after removing plastic trim #2. I found a vid that goes a step further possibly for those 'other' models.

Here: Over The Range Microwave Oven Door Repair Help - YouTube!

Hope that helps some
