The front plastic bezel on the door does not provide any shielding from the microwave energy inside the cooking compartment. As long as that is the ONLY damage and you haven't compromised the door, door frame or protective gasketing around the door opening then you should be safe.

Why will my Kenmore model 401.85053010 mocrowave door will not latch?


Check the door latches that stick out from the door. Push them up. Is there any resistance? If not, then the spring that pulls them downward either broke or came of its catches. You will need to call a repairman who will have to take the door apart and either replace or re-fasten that spring.

The microwave timer runs but turnable plate doesn,t rotate and the heating elements doesn't comes on


you need a new microwave. There are no heating elements in mocrowaves just micro-waces. It only heats moisture it does not heat objects. It is to dangerous to replace the actual device that heats liquids.

Door Handle


If at all possible try getting an exploded image break down to see what needs to happen, basically you have two things in your way one is the "choke"...the large black rectangle on the inside of the door this has to be pryed off carefully all the way around and lifted off, pocket knife works great to get it started. next you will have the front door assembly snapped onto the mesh screen and frame of the door itself. Once you have seperated the front door you will see the screws for the handle, DONT OVERTIGHTEN these screws when you reinstall.

Ge spacemaker microwave jvm1630bkc


it is just behind the front top grill on the right. The plastic grill that goes accross the entire top of the front of the unit. Then behind it on the right is a small power board that has the ceramic fuse on it.
remove 2 srews from top of microwave that hold the top of this plastic grill in place.
Then slide the grill to the left or right (I don't remember which way). Now the grill will come out.

The fuse is usually the secondary issue. Most often, it is the cavity TCO that goes out. This is the thermo-coupler that breaks the main power circuit if the inside of the mocrowave gets over 100 degrees C. requires taking the unit down and taking the cover off.

Hole in plastic on inside of door


check the conductivity of the plastic with an ohmmeter by placing the probes an inch apart on the plastic surface. If the resistance is large or infinity, the plastic probably performs no role in stopping the microwave radiation. If so, any epoxy probably can be used to close the hole safely. Make sure you don't use too much and if possible place tape over the repair and orient the microwave so the epoxy presses against the tape while drying to prevent it from oozing into any door hinge/close mechanism. Otherwise, a piece of microwave door glass from a broken unit can ge glued over the hole and should stop the radiation. You can check for leakage with test units but be very carefuly anyway.

Front vent fell off


This should be a very easy fix. I assume you are talking about the plastic vent grill on the top of the oven above the door. There should only be a couple of screws holding it in from the top. The grill then should tilt out from the top first then from the bottom to remove. Since you said that it had fallen off, it sounds like the tabs where the screw holes are have broken off. This is a common problem. You can buy the part by ordering from the manufacturer, or from most repair websites. All you need is the model number from the microwave. Good luck.

GE XL1800 Door


OK, I'm no handy man and I just figured out how to do this. Open the door and remove the black plastic cover surrounding the inside glass. I used a regular flat head screw driver to pop this out.

Now I removed the 3 screws holding the inner panel against the glass on the front door. After removing the screws, the inner panel is held in place by a series of plastic clips. Go around the perimeter and pop the plastic clips out so the inner panel including the mesh comes out of the door.

Now you have complete access to clean the inside of the glass door!

I found it easier to do this operation with the door completely off the microwave, but you should be able to do this with the door in place too.
