Simple, simply lifted the old piece out of position and dropped the new piece in. A small part of the broken old piece must have fallen away and is still in the unit, but it has not gotten in the way of the new piece doing its purpose

I ordered this part from Part Select for my GE Microwave oven after Googeling it from the model number. They had the lowest price, so if you are reading this, just go ahead and order the part, you won’t find it any cheaper.

As far as the repair goes it was the easiest repair that I think I have ever made. It took me longer to unpack the part than to instal it.

There are two screws on the top of the microwave that hold the assembly in place. Just remove those two screws and slide the assembly to the left as there are three small hooks on the bottom that hold the bottom in place. To install the new assembly, I simply lined up the three bottom hooks and slid it to the right and replaced the two screws on top. I tested it and it worked perfect. Only tool was a Philips screw driver.

My only criticism is towards GE for designing the part this way. I seems to me that the two springs that hold the door shut have to much tension which causes the part to break. Seems like just making the springs with a little less tension or stronger spring attachments would solve this problem.

In our case getting access to the charcoal filter is complicated because the unit is mounted under an overhang of the kitchen cabinet.

Removed the microwave with the buit in housing from the cabinet. Removed microwave from built in housing. Removed outer cabinet giving access to remove control panel and smart board where switches are located. Removed control panel to get to smartboard. Removed smart board after disconnecting a few wires to allow easy removal. Individually removed and then tested each switch using multimeter. Found seondary Door Switch (bottom of smart board) operation to be intermittent (switch trip button extremely loose and rattle inside this particular switch) Ordered replacement part which came very quickly on standard shipping order. Put new switch on smart board and remounted, reinstalled control panel and reconnected various wire connectors previously disconnected. Then plugged in oven and tested for opertation - didn't work at all! But, after bleeding off capacior charge by removing connectors and discharging capacitor to ground, then reassembling control board and smart board into oven, then trying agian, it has worked perfectly ever since. Do not understand why capacitor disconnect/discharge was required but suspect this reset the control electronics. Easy fix and hope to get another 12 years out of this appliance which is used multiple times every day. Also have two other identical micorwave ovens, one is 20 years old, but these get used relatively infrequently.

One of the easiest repairs I've ever done, I have AHS, but it was way cheaper to replace it myself, took about 3 minutes and cost less than 50 dollars, remove 5 screws to take the bottom plate off, 2 screws that hold the motor on, unplug it And slap the new one in...very simple, think the wife could have handled this one, lol!

Simply removed five screws from the bottom of the microwave, removed two more screws holding the drive motor and unplugged the motor. We often have the initial urge to call an appliance repair shop, but this part was easily found on Parts Select.Serial numbers on the part had changed but their photo assured me they had the right motor.

Followed the instructions supplied can't have been easier. The part was on my door step the next day. It was faster than Jimmy Johns. I will use Partselect again and will recommend when I can. Thx for the great service.

Simply remove the 5 screws that holds up the bottom panel of the microwave, disconnect the plug from the drive motor and remove the one screw that holds the drive motor in place. Simply reverse the steps and you're good to go. The only challenge was re-attaching the screw for the drive motor (A bit small) but once reconnected, everything else goes smoothly.
