Repair a door handle
Give your microwave handle a second chance!
A microwave is like a life-saver when you're in a rush and need to heat something, either a quick meal or a nice coffee in the morning. You count on it day after day but suddenly it breaks and you panic! You don't need to - you will learn how to fix a door handle in no time and go back to normal again!
WHAT YOU NEED
- Gap-filling glue (e.g. Pattex Kraft-Mix)
Prepare the product
Use a gap-filling glue to fill the inner holes of the handle. Epoxy liquid glues are perfect for this task. If you use a 2-component adhesive (e.g. Pattex Kraft-Mix), dispense equal amounts of the two components, both Resin and Hardener, into a disposible tray. It may seem hard, but it's much easier than you think, just do it slowly and you'll be fine!
Mix the product
Now you need to througly mix them together using a spatula for a couple of seconds. Do it until you see that both components are well mixed together.
Apply the product
Using the spatula, apply enough glue (e.g. Pattex Kraft-Mix) on the handle so that you fill any gap that could exist in the bond line. The area might be small, so apply the product carefully to avoid any drops.
Attach the handle to the microwave door and hold in position until the glue sets, for around 3 minutes. In the meanwhile, you can already start thinking about your next meal to be heated when the handle has dried.
Let it dry
Let it dry overnight and that's it! Just in time to heat your morning coffee and enjoy it on your pallet sofa!
