First, I removed the screws that hold the handle to the door, and then removed the handle. Then, I used a small flathead screwdriver to pry the door apart. Then I slid out the front glass panel, and exposed the side of the door. The replacement piece was easy to install, it is just held in with two pins and a spring.

No heat in the microwave

We purchased our Microhood oven about 4 years ago along with the extended warranty package offered thru home depot. Within one year, the problems began. Each year the secondary switch would go bad rendering the microwave useless. If you have 3 small children like we do, you tend to use it a lot. We sure take the microwave for granted.

Each time G.E. would fix the problem at no charge. Ths time - the warranty had expired and GE wanted to charge us $80.00 for service call plus parts and labor. We estimated the cost to run at least $150.00 or more.

To top it all off, GE was going to have a service tech avail for over 2 weeks. This is poor customer service and completely unaccceptable.

Because this was a recurring problem, I figured it was the same part that had being going bad since we purchased the appliance. I decided to order the part "secondary switch" myself and attempt to fix the microwave on my own.

I ordered the part last Tuesday, the part arrived last Friday. Within 10 minutes I had the microwave apart, replaced the part and had the microwave back in working order.

PartSelect saved me over $100.00.

We are very satified with PartsSelect, I would recommend them to anyone

Put radioactive nuke suit on. Unplug microwave, used philips screw driver and took glass plate from the bulb cover, unscrew burnt bulb and replace with new bulb. Put cover back over replacement bulb, insert screw and tighten. Then used philips screw driver to take two screws that held the front control panel in place, then it folded down, then checked 20 amp fuse, it was burnt, replaced it with a new one. Folded control panel, inserted two small philip head screws back into control panel. Then plugged microwave back in, set the clock, tested it with cup water. Worked like a brand new one. Take off radioactive nuke suit. Just kidding about the radioactive nuke suit.

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.

Took the screw out of the glass door holder, bent the clips up and removed the broken glass. While this was open chenged the light bulbs as well. Put new glass in bent the holding clips down and closed the doors and installed the screws again. So nice to have good light again and also new glass in them. Never noticed they were broken before.

I've been fixing and taking things apart since I was a kid. I hoped that it was a bad switch in the door. Got out my test meter and check the 3 different switches. All 3 tested good, but one was a bit hit and miss. It would work if the microwave was on its side and wouldn't when it was set flat. I found the switch online and installed it. Took care of the problem.It was a whole lot cheaper than buying a new microwave. Thanks! Bill Brown, Fridley, MN

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

I removed both sockets from the microwave and when your part arrived, I installed them both including the new lights. The work perfectly and it was very easy to put them in. I also appreciate the speed of delivery and your concern for my feed back on the product. I have you number in my contact list and should I need another part, I'll check with your first.

The glass tray in my microwave oven cracked and I found PartSelect on line. They sent me a replacement tray quickly. All I had to do was remove the cracked tray and insert the new one. Unfortunately ,after a few months this tray also cracked! I checked the Partselect website and found out my tray was guaranteed for one year ! PartSelect sent me a new tray free of charge. I received the tray in a few days.
Thanks Partselect!
