Broken glass and bad bulb

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Removed one screw, slid frame out and removed broken glass. replaced bulb. The hard part was slidding the frame back in place and starting the screw. We were very surprised at the fast delivery of the parts, thank you. The sad part, a few days later the glass broke again. We are trying to get to the people at GE to solve our problem. We feel like that will not happen, we just do not have the time to stay on hold on the phone waiting for someone to solve our problem. Will reorder glass.

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!

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.

Unscrewed numerous screws holding the "body/shell" to the microwave. Removed body. I then unplugged top door switch, replaced it with new one, and "tested" the new one. I fixed our $400 convection micro with an $18 switch. NICE!

Microwave appeared to work. Fan worked, timer worked plate rotated. It just didn't heat the food!

I purchased the fuse and 3 door switches from PartSelect. Replaced the fuse first but that did not solve the problem. Then I replaced the 3 door switches and problem solved!! So fuse only cost $5.00 so glad I have a new fuse in there as well. To see how to replace door switches see videos on utube!!

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.

Broken Light Socket

  • 3 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
Turned the power to the unit off. Removed seven- (7) small screws from the base plate, not removing the rear screws. The plate dropped a few inches allowing me to get to the light socket. I removed one- (1) screw that allowed the socket to be removed. I then detached the two- (2) electrical leads. I now installed the new socket, replacing the leads and the screw along with a new bulb. I pushed the bottom plate back into the up position and replaced the seven- (7) screws. Turned the power back on and we were good to go.

I had to figure out how to get one of the screws out because I could only see the head for one of them. I removed a strip of plastic that goes around the inside parameter of the door. With that removed I foud the other screw head. I removed the remaining screw and there you have it. Put it back together and your done. . The strip around the door just snapped on so that was easy. The big problem: I received the wrong door handle from PartSelect but they had the new handle at my door the very next day. I don't know haw they did that. From Kentucky to cocoa Florida in less than 24 hours. I may have ordered the wrong part but still my Microwave was broken for four days total. I know this sounds like an ad but I'm just happy with the service. Thanks PartSelect.
