I have had my microwave since late 2003. I have had to replace the hande 3 times and then replaced the entire door 6 months ago due to another broken handle. The handle on the new door just broke at the bottom (same as before). I telephoned GE and they said they do not have any recorded issues with the handle on my model. I went to a luncheon at a home that had the same model microwave/convection and the handle was broken. Has anyone else had the same issue?
