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

Repair, not the problem. It was getting the correct filter. Under filter is "grease" not "air" filter. So first time an air filter came. Returned to GE. Found out GE doesn't make the size needed for 2001 model any longer --just bigger. Then connected to PartsSelect, they had right filter for the right model. Came and didn't fit. Returned. While getting return OK, very helpful individual kept checking and realized larger size was sent and did find the correct size. It was sent and fit. Your customer service was extremely helpful.

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.

It was very simple...there were two screws on the inside of the door that held the handle. Removing the screws was easy and the new handle lined up perfectly. I replace the screws and the whole event took less than 15 minutes. The handle arrived from PartSelect the day after I ordered it and even though they had projected 3-5 days for delivery.

Took the front panel off, played with the switch while it was plugged in to verify the switch was bad. I actually was able to tweak the switch just right to keep the microwave working while the part was being delivered. When it came it was just removing two small screws and replacing. Very easy.

Microwave Door Handle broke at bottom

When I tried to remove the handle, I discovered someone (teenage step daughters) attempted to glue the broken handle to hide the fact that it was broken. It did not work. The handle broke again, leaving part of the handle assemply suck in the door. I had to use a cordless drill to drill out the glued in portion of the handle. Fortunately, when the drill bit dug it, it broke the glue seal and the broken insert came out. After that, it was a breeze to install the replacement door handle.
