GE Spacemaker door was jammed to far opened - now it does not work

Our GE spacemaker microwave oven door was swung to far open; it knocked it off kilter and now does not work. There is complete power to the unit, all of the displays work correctly. Any suggestions?

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order any needed parts by entering your full model number here.

You will need to look it over to see if anything in the door / hinge area got damaged. If so, those damaged parts will need to be replaced.

In some cases with over the range models, you will have to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover to see everything.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Locked ge spacemaker xl1800


This sounds like the "child lockout" feature is on. Does the door open, but the microwave won't work. Press the "clear/off" button for 3 seconds or so if this is what you're experiencing. If not, I apologize for wasting your time.

GE Spacemaker xl1800


A simple test is to place a piece of bread in the microwave ( it heats up very fast) and then if your microwave was actually ON and generating RF, the bread would get hot very fast.. If it remains cool then only the fan is on. It appears that you may have a faulty door switch thou because once you open the door, your microwave should be off..

Are you sure the VENT is not on? That blower will operate regardless of the door open or closed so you must switch it OFF.
