Question:

I need help on how to remove the door interlock switch from the housing, the bottom one. It appears that switch is installed permanently. Try to bend the little plastic notches (mark with red ink) that keep the switch in place but these are hard plastic and cannot be bent. Many tks in advance.

Qui for model number JE1860BH03
Answer:

Hi Qui, Thank you for the question. The switches should just pop out if its spot. You can try to use a small flat head screw driver to pry it out of the housing. Hope this helps!

Hi Billthe, Thank you for the question. If the appliance still turns on and runs as normal but without heat, you will need to replace the Magnetron,PartSelect Number PS11729114.This part is used to generate microwave energy/heat. Hope this helps!

Microwave would turn on and count down, but not heating and not rotate turntable. Pressing door up would occasionally start heat.

First I disconnected the power and opened the door. Then I removed the top screws holding the top vent louvers, then removed the screw at the top of the touch pad. The touch pad removes by sliding up slightly then tilting top out. I unscrewed two screws holding the door latch assembly. Press the tab to remove and replace switch. Reconnect wires, reseat latch mount by placing top bracket tab in place first, allign and secure with screws. Reseat touch pad by placing bottom tabs in first, tilt forward and press up to seat top tabs, secure with top screw. Secure vent louver screws, plug in and watch your microwave work again.

Customer: Lawrence from East Patchogue, AL

Had to press door opener slightly to work

Removed screws holding outer shell. Pushed in door handle to identify faulty switch. Ordered part. Pryed switch out with screw driver and unplugged. reinstalled new switch. Presto. BUT... I did NOT use both hands while working on the microwave. I did not release the energy from the capacitor or whatever holds the killer amperage even when unplugged. It would be advisable to do this first. I did not because it seemed complicated, so I was EXTREMELY CAREFUL about not touching anything else inside the unit. I used one hand only so if I did touch something I would not get juiced through the chest. It was a piece of cake repair, but I would not go deeper without doing the discharge routine.

Microwave would not heat

First remove all screws holding on outer metal casing of microwave. Next remove the back and bottom metal pieces. You will then be able to pull aside the outer casing so you can access the door switches. Check each switch with an ohm meter in both the open position and with the switch closed. If the ohm meter reads the same in both the open and closed position, the switch is bad. Check the top switch first. Replace switch and reassemble. Cheap fix for a costly microwave. Great customer service at Parts Select!
