It was a snap using the instructions given. The key is getting into the unit. I did have to use a multimeter to find the failed switch since there are two of that type.

Remove the microwave cover. Requires a phillips screwdriver and a torx security bit/nut driver (there are two security type screws on the back...guess they don't want you to do this at home!). I had to buy the a security bit set (about $7). The diode is easily accessible on the right side under the fan. Requires removing on small phillips screw and unplugging on electrical connection. GE provides some instructions in an envelope on top (after cover removed). There is a warning/instruction to discharge the capacitor before service. This was not a problem for me. Actual diode replacement took 30 seconds. Whole job = 15 minutes.

Simply unscrew the bottom panel of the microwave device (it swings downward when opening - there are hinges on the back to protect it from falling down). Remove the old light socket (which is modular and is screwed in place)from the connectors and then replace it with the new light socket. That's it

I first went on you tube and typed in my brand and model number. It brought up how to take apart the door to get at the four screws. I used a butter knife to pop out the door frame. With the inner door off the first two screws came out then you can get at the other two screws. I used the same old screws to reinstall the new handle. The door handle arrived in two days via ups. The frame snaps together, very easy. Never installed a handle before. The price was right and the wife wanted this fixed, now!

Checked the make and model number of unit, went on line and it was quite easy to find the replacement part and order it. The part fit exactly as the original and I didn't need to replace the entire microwave.

Microwave would not turn on

  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Microwave would not turn on. Lights and fan worked fine. Before the microwave stopped completely, it would turn the microware fan on even when door was open. I read the reviews and they were exactly the same issue that others were facing. Once I opened the front panel and got to the switches it was easy to figure out which switch was bad as it was the one that was soft (When clicking it). It was hard to take it out though (it seemed stuck). So, I used a plier to yank it out. I put in the new switch and everything worked just great! I would like to thank other comments that were left on the site to make my task much easier. Thank you (to the commenters on PartsSelect), you not only saved me money, but also ensured that I learn about the microwave more and give me the confidence that I could fix it.

After reading reviews that there was no power what so ever and a fuse replacement will solve the problem, I tried it. Replacing the fuse is very easy (and I am not handy at all). All you have to do is remove the microwave cover from the top by removing two screws, slide the cover to the left and pulling the cover off. Then remove the grill in front of you, by removing one or two screws. The fuse is in front of you, use pliers and be firm but gentle. Replacing the fuse is easy but it did not solve my problem.

Replace broken handle on microwave oven door

I have replaced Handles on GE Microwave ovens before. The previous two attempts were much easier because the screws that attach the handle are easily accessible without removing any other parts. On this Model the 4 screws that attach the handle have their heads hidden inside the door assembly. Although you might be able to replace the handle without removing the door, I would strongly advise against this. On my particular model the door was easy to remove; I did learn from some on-line videos that there is a more complex version, which is why I rated my experience as 'difficult' rather than 'very difficult'. So, if you cant immediately remove the old handle buy extracting visible screws, stop and remove the door assembly. Don't attempt to pry the handle off, you could easily damage the whole assembly. With the door off face down on your workbench, remove the plastic trim from the inside of the door frame using a putty knive. Be really careful, this is held in by a few plastic tabs on each edge, and they are very easy to break. At this point you may be luck to have revealed all the screws holding on the handle. Remove any that are visible. If you can't easily remove the handle now, you are going to have to remove the metal shield that surrounds the window. This is held in with screws and more lugs. You will then reveal the last two screws that hold the handle in place. If you cant remember how to put it all back, it was probably a project you shouldn't have attempted! Good luck, this is appliance designed in part to completely confound anyone who attempts to repair without some prior knowledge of the assembly. If I hadn't found a few tips on-line I'm sure I would have wreaked mine, and had to replace the whole door assembly for $200 instead of a $40 Handle.

The advice on the site was helpful, but I did discover one additional point: the outside glass comes off with the outside plastic frame. Don't try and pry between the glass and the front cover.
