• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

Microwave is 20 years old. Works well. Door handle broke years ago and repaired with steelstik. Now handle broke again. I was able to get a new handle but I can't get the steelstik off the outside of the frame where the door handle attaches. Should I replace the door or can I replace the front frame? Or would it be cost effective to get a new unit?

Neither the door frame (# WB55X10530) or the whole door (# WB56X10294) are available any longer. If you can't reuse the one there now and you can't use the microwave the way it is, the only option I know is to replace the whole unit. Sorry
