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...

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.

Needed to jam another screw driver in to the plastic on the other side so I could unscrew the screws and get the old plastic sleeves out of the door. Once I got those out, the repair took all of five minutes. Beats buying a new microwave.

Installed new handle with the two ordered screws. Everything fit. Quick repair. Though I believe the handle to be a little pricy.....when all is finished and all works properly one can overlook what ones feels is a little pricy. Also much cheaper than a entire new unit. Thanks for prompt delivery.

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!!

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.

Ordering was easy! I used the model # on micro and found the diagram which told me exactly what I needed to fix it! It arrived in 2 days from when I ordered and all I really had to do was uncrew the old tap screws using a needlenose plier to hold sheered off end of plastic mount and phillips head to unscrew and then re install new handle! So easy! I didnt even need to wait for my husband to get home!
