Ordered through parts.select because GEprice was totally outrageous.
Unfortunately, my first order was lost and after 2 weeks I phoned your customer service and Betty was quite helpful. She followed up (as I called on a Saturday am) on Monday and reported to me that the item was lost. She then asked me if I wished to place another order. I did, of course - it arrived in a timely manner - I placed the cooking tray into the microwave and I was in business!!! Thank You Partselect!!!!!

My GE JVM1870SF02's vent assembly was on its last leg and it finally popped off and fell. I was glad that I was able to buy the specific part and having the Blown-out diagram helped to narrow which part I really needed to purchase.

Removed the Grill Assembly front-flap panel off broken grill. Installed the front-flap panel on new grill assembly and installed in the top section of the microwave. Good to go!

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!

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...

broken lens

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

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.
