Took cover off, noted the two side by side switches easily visible and we hought one of these was responsible. Then son noted a third switch at the top of the plastic assembly which inserts at an odd angle. When it was inspected signs of a previous short showed up with burnt contact points. Reinserted at same odd angle as there were guide holes, closed things up and oven worked 100%. Great prompt service and great website!! We will use you again

Most of the effort is simply getting the oven out of the built in enclosure and the sheet metal off. This take about 15 minutes then you have to remove the two screws (not handy location) that hold the door latch/switch assembly so you can remove the switch. I did this BEFORE ordering so I could test the switch (it was charred) and verify the part needed. WATCH OUT - some ovens use a normally open an some a normally closed version of this switch - you have to get the right one. I checked several suppliers that were showing the WRONG switch for my model. PartSelect had it right. Once I received the switch I had it on and the oven installed and running in less than 30 miutes. Working fine since then...

Door handle broke

The repair was relatively ease. I have to tell you that what helped me the most was reading the experiences others had had. The repair took me qabout 7 minutes. Simply take a puddy knife and carefully take out the ring around the glass on the indide of the door. Once removed you will see the botoom screw. The upper screw is very visible. Remove the two screws and replace....its that ease.

Broken door handle

There was one screw on top that was easily accessable, but the lower one is hidden. I first removed the door seal that goes around the outside of the door but, that didn't expose the screw. On the inside of the door there is a seal just for the glass window. I used a butter knife to open just a section of it and it immediately exposed the screw that I needed to remove.

Door handle broke off at bottom.

Took the microwave door off. Then read other repair stories here online and discovered that wasn't neccesary. So when the handle arrived I only had to unscrew the top visible screw, pry the bottom plastic strip off the door to reveal and remove the hidden screw. From there it was only a matter of seconds to attach the new handle and snap the plastic strip back in place. Only thing I need to mention is we did not realize the part would be coming from Canada and were surprised to see the additional postage fee charged to our debit card. Felt that should have been added up front. Not a problem, just a surprise.

Broken Handle

First I opened the door of the microwave oven and unscrewed the top screw holding the handle to the door. Then I removed the dor gasket which obscured the bottom screw. Then I unscrewed the bottom screw and removed the broken handle. Unfortuantely, this is the second time I have had to replace a broken handle. The handle is quite simply not strong enough to endure normal usage over time. If you pull the handle in a hurry and in an awkward way it will break. Shame on you, GE. Anyway, installation of the new handle was the reverse of the removal of the broken one. Very simple. I saved myself an expensive service call and the delay in getting it replaced, PartSelect got the part I ordered to me in 24 hours! Thank you very much!

first i remove the screw, then removed the lens assembly (really a frame) bent the feet out of the way, slid the old lens out and the new one in, bent the feet back in place and inserted the assembly into place replaced screw. the killer is a day later it was broken again, think the lens can't handle the heat from the oven below or the lights above. you guys where great fast and exact match part but the ge design is flawed

Light bulbs wouldn't come out of socket

I ended up breaking one bulb trying to remove a burnt bulb for replacement. We then tried removing the other bulb and it wouldn't come out either. I googled the problem and found PartSelect and an explaination of the problem. Heat from either the stove or the bulbs had fused the bulbs into the sockets. Comments on the problem explained that you just remove the bottome pannel (we had seven screws), unplug the old sockets, insert the new and new bulbs and reattach the panel. It was quick and no problems to correct. We did discover the microwave was on its own breaker, make sure to disconnect or cutoff power to the microwave before you start.

After closing door the display panel must be tapped on to keep the unit operating.

The switches are not the problem! The problem is in the tolerences of the latch housing. I have ordered two new housings (Upper & Lower) and will see if the tolerences are closer. If not I will try epoxying a shim to the plate that operates the microswitches. The other option is to file the mounting slots of the housing to allow adjustment, which would be iffy,keeping them from moving with use. The exploded drawings really need to be clarified. The scale is way too small. It was extremely difficult to pick out the individual parts of the mechanisiam.

I removed one phillips screw on the inside of door. Took a butter knief and popped the strip on the inside of door to expose the 2nd screw. Attached the new handle using the two original screws. Less than 5 min. Piece of cake.

Took the front panel off, played with the switch while it was plugged in to verify the switch was bad. I actually was able to tweak the switch just right to keep the microwave working while the part was being delivered. When it came it was just removing two small screws and replacing. Very easy.
