    FIXED MVH210E Amana Microwave Door Handle - broken at bottom

    This senior (Jan '95) microwave handle broke at the bottom attachment point. Given it's age the odds of a replacement handle seem dim. The plastic simply has fractured around the attachment screw, probably as a result of years of pulling. Two thoughts come to mind - replace the unit or use...

    Emerson MW8992SB microwave turns on when door is opened

    Last night our Emerson microwave started running when we open the door. It appears to just be the fan and turntable running, though I'm not sure and we didn't leave it open long enough to find out for certain -- didn't want to risk burns. The door closes fine but I am assuming that there's a...
