Re: door trim is cracked
What you have to do is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door comes right off the hinge pins. In most cases you will remove the top louver panel (right above the door). Is just a matter of fitting a door ?. I hope this helps

There is a inner door trim on the inside of the microwave door
that can come off to expose the screws for the handle. This trim is held in place by clips
built into the trim, ( some older models may also have screws - look for them and remove
before going any further ) the tabs on this trim can break easily but with a putty knife
and some patience, the trim can be removed to get at the handle screws. See picture help. This trim can be pushed so the clips will
"pop" back into place after the handle repair.
There is a piece of trim on the inside of the door. This trim is rectangular, about 1/2" wide, and goes around the outside of the glass. the trim has rounded corners. Take a knife and gently insert at a rounded corner, prying the trim out. Once you can put a finger behind the trim, you'll find it comes off easily, revealing the lower handle screw.
If this is and Over the Range micro, the exhaust fan needs to run ANYTIME the cooktop is on. They make things for quantity and not quality, so the plastic has little tolerance for heat. Running the fan, diminishes heat off the front of the unit. Also, the micro MUST be at leat 24" off the cooktop.
This should be a fairly simple procedure. To replace most microwave oven doors, all you have to do is open the door as wide as it will open and then lift straight up. The door will come off the hinge mounting pins and lift off. Install the new door by holding it in the open position and aligning it properly on the hinge pins. NOTE: On some models, you may have to remove the upper trim above the door. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have further questions.
You need to call GE customer care and order the trim you need. Make sure they will ship the replacement guide with the part. Before you do that however, carefully inspect the door to see if the old trim can be easily removed. This is important! You must determine that the door/gasket will not get out of alignment in the process. If this happens, dangerous microwave energy can escape.
Solution for GE Spacemaker Ovens (my model is JVM1650BH05)
1- Remove door by lifting it out of hinges. You will need to remove grille first (2 set screws). 2- Carefully pry off the plastic inside door trim. Use a fine knife or putty knife. There are 10 tabs holding the trim from behind. It's OK if you break a tab! Try to pull out as straight as possible. 3- Once the trim is off, remove the 2 visible screws that hold the door handle. NOTE: There are 2 invisible screws so you are not done yet! 4- You now need to remove the metal ring that holds the latches. To do that, grab the metal ring and using your other hand, release each plastic tab one by one (same tabs as above). 5- Once the metal ring is loose, you will see 2 screws. Remove them if they are still there. 6- Position your new handle and attach using the first 2 screws. 7- Reposition the metal ring by re-snapping it in place. Install the other 2 screws. 8- Replace the plastic trim by snapping it back in place 9- Reinstall door and grille. Tell wife or hubby that you are a genius!
Bonus: use metal washers when screwing down the 2 first screws.
