Broken glass and bad bulb

  • Customer: Chris from Destin FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
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.

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

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!

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

Replace door handle

THere are two screws holding the door handle. One is easliy accessed, the other is hidden.

There is a plastice seal that needs to be removed from inside the door. Its about 1/3 of an inch wide and is on the inside of the door surrounding the glass. It is NOT on the jam but on the inside surface of the door itself. You need thin tool to begin to pry out the seal. Once the first section is loose the rest comes out easily.
The hidden screw is easily accessible once the seal is out.
Simply pop back in when done.

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.

I unscrewed the top inside screw, pried the inner plate off with a butter knife revealing the bottom screw. Replaced handle, screws and plate. It was so easy for me because I read about it on your website. Otherwise, I had no clue!

1 - Open the microwave door and locate the plastic gasket that goes all around the inside of the door (just around the glass)
2 - Using a slotted screwdriver, remove the plastic gasket. This will expose the bottom screw.
3 - Remove the top and bottom screws of the handle
4 - Attach the new handle and put the plastic gasket back in place
5 - Enjoy the rest of your day!

The microwave door handle broke

  • Customer: Kenneth from Caledonia MI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
The repair is simple. There was only one screw remaining to hold the handle and the screw is visible from the inside of the door. The second screw can be accessed by removing a piece of trim that goes around the inside of the glass. Remove that trim by carefully twisting the trim and sliding a thin knife into the inner edge. Once you see the first of the small clips the rest is easy.

Only complaint is that the microwave is only 10 years old and the part has two small extrusions for the screw. The price of the replacement is excessively high for what it is.

Remove upper handle screw. This is accessible on the inside surface of the door.

Remove inside trim piece that surrounds door glass. It prys off easily.

With trim off, lower screw is accessible. Remove lower screw.

Align new door handle with holes in door and replace screws.

Replace inside door trim (just snaps in place).

I loosened the screw that held the top of the handle onto the door of the microwave, and also removed the gasket on the inside of the door, exposing the bottom screw holding the lower end of the handle to the door. I removed the old handle parts and placed the new handle in the proper location, and then screwed the handle into place. I replaced the gasket, and I was done!
It was painless.
