defective handle on GE Profile Advantium 120 - Page 2

post #31 of 34

YES!  I am just ordering my THIRD handle for this unit.  GE says there's no problem?!?!?  I doubt Toyota or Honda would let this happen on one of their cars. Really!?!??!?!?  I would go out and buy a new microwave but this one was SO expensive to begin with :(

Boy, wish I could mill my own handle!!  I'm getting ready to call for a second handle.  Did the glue repair work for others?  So frustrating.

All -

 

I've had the same problem with my advantium door latch - after being fed up with replacing the cheap plastic part two times, I decided to make the part out of solid metal (aluminum).

 

If of interest, I have several for sale on ebay and they will soon be available on amazon. They are priced slightly higher than the plastic part offered by various vendors, but I hope that the quality/durability of the metal version outweighs the increased price as you will never have to replace it. Hope you find this to be a lower cost option than replacing the oven (which I almost did after repeated door latch issues).

 

I am not certain if links are allowed so if the below doesn't show up, it is ebay item # 232252725896

There's a version of this part that is available in machined aluminum, for those that are at the end of their rope with the plastic part (like I was,which is why I made it).

It is on eBay, you can just search the listing for "WB10X10021 (solid metal, won't break)."
