Microwave completely stopped working

Turned out the issue was easily solved by replacing a single, inexpensive fuse.

First off, UNPLUG THE MICROWAVE.

The fuse is located under the plastic grill at the top of the microwave. It's held on by two screws. Once you've removed the screws and taken off the plastic grill, you go to the right side of the microwave and remove another screw that holds a small metal grill in place. Removing the small metal grill is probably the toughest part of this repair. You kind of have to rock it back and forth a bit to get it to release. Once that's off, you can get to the fuse. I removed the burnt out one with a pair of needle nose pliers. I also put a small piece of cardboard under the fuse when I did this so I didn't accidentally drop it into the innards of the microwave. I did the same thing when I replaced the new fuse. I then plugged the appliance back in and made sure it worked. Once that was confirmed, I replaced both grills.

Turned of f the circuit breaker to the microwave. Unscrewed the cover (1 screw!) popped out the old bulbs and plugged in the new ones, using the bubblewrap as a handle to be sure my skin didn't touch the light bulbs so the oil from my hands didn't damage or shorten the life of the new bulbs. Turned the circuit back on. That's it!

This lamp does not have easy access

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

This is the second time that this lamp hase gone out. It is located in a small space in the top of the microwave and you need to remove the top front pannel, then take a screw or two out of a metal shield and bend the shield up to get your hand into the compartment where, if you know how, you can reach in and lift out the reflector shield that the lighbulb is plugged into and remove the old one and plug in the new one. The first time was hard to figure out how to do it but the second time wasn't bad because I knew how to do it.

Loss of Rack holder clip for GE Profile Convection Microwave oven

It was super easy! Opened the door, matched up the hole on the side of the microwave convection oven with the first portion of the rack holder clip, pushed in the rack holder clip and made a twist to ensure the rack holder clip seated in the wall of the oven. Less than 30 seconds to install - no tools necessary. I that the clips came in an order of a unit of 8 clips, allowing me a quick-fix if I need additional clips for loss. Now I have stable racks within my oven ensuring safe insertion and removal of food from the oven. Having the full use of both of the racks in my convection oven during the summer is a Godsend, especially living in the Ohio Valley with its' hot steamy summers - my kitchen stays cool as a cucumber, and so do I!

I diagnosed the problem incorrectly: based on a previous repair.

The repair man said this would not be covered under my home warranty and that it would cost too much for him to fix, so he showed me what to do, I ordered the part and did it myself. I just had to gently pry the tabs up on the inside of the door panel using a putty knife. Once the latch is visible you unhook it from a clip and a little spring. Attached the spring onto replacement latch and snap back into place, snap the tab of the door panel back in place and your done.

After picking up glass from one end of the trailer to the other, this thing must have exploded because we are still finding glass!
1.) Open microwave door
2.) Insert Glass Tray
3.) Close microwave door

Now if it was that easy to replace the ground off fiberglass on my end cap!

Microwave would turn on and count down, but not heating and not rotate turntable. Pressing door up would occasionally start heat.

First I disconnected the power and opened the door. Then I removed the top screws holding the top vent louvers, then removed the screw at the top of the touch pad. The touch pad removes by sliding up slightly then tilting top out. I unscrewed two screws holding the door latch assembly. Press the tab to remove and replace switch. Reconnect wires, reseat latch mount by placing top bracket tab in place first, allign and secure with screws. Reseat touch pad by placing bottom tabs in first, tilt forward and press up to seat top tabs, secure with top screw. Secure vent louver screws, plug in and watch your microwave work again.

Two counter light bulbs burned out

After removing the screws holding the 2 cover plates in position, I removed the halogen light bulbs with my fingers. Then I placed a paper towel around the first replacement bulb and lined up the two wire connectors with the two holes in the receptacle. I pushed in, but the bulb's probes did not slide into the receptacle. I spent five minutes aligning and pushing but to no avail. Then I removed the filter screen on the side of the receptacle, shined a flashlight beam on the receptacle, and with an improved view of the two holes in the receptacle, slid the bulb in. The second bulb was inserted in a few minutes, and the job was done. Whoever designed the halogen bulb was not as bright as Thomas Edison.

the online instructions were ideal - just unscrewed the right-hand screw (the only screw) and replaced the bulb by inserting gently but firmly)...getting the old bulb out was a pain, b/c it shattered in my grasp (with little bits of glass all over the stove!), but that has nothing to do with the purchase and installation from this site - all a very good experience

rack holder broke off in oven

tried to replace rack holder but was unable. It did not turn easily and took a screwdriver to pry it out before replacing it. No instructions were available from manufacturer so we were afraid if we pried it out we would be severing different entry parts for the rack holder. Not a good scene!!!We finally pried it out but without instructions.

Lamp burnt out

We had our kitchen remodeled; new cabinets, countertop, range, refigerator, microwave, dishwasher and floor.

The cabinets around the microwave were custom made; it looks great but it hid the screws, which had to be unscrewed to remove the grill so the interior light of the microwave could be replaced.

A stand was used to support the microwave as I lowered it so the screws could exposed so the light could be replaced.

The light was replaced, the microwave was raised back into place and all is well. I replaced the bulb while my wife was out of town. When she returned she noticed that the microwave was nice and clean; she was NOT aware of the fact that the bulb was replaced!
