Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Just got my new GE Cafe microwave. Set it on the table, plugged it in and it worked fine. Hung it on the brackets, plugged it in and it does not work. I do have power to the outlet. I have tested it repeatly. When I remove the microwave from the wall and set it back on the table it works. I am an Electrician so I know if I have power or not.

Looking for WB07X10973 Replacement Ctrl panel assembly for GE microwave.

That part has been discontinued, but you may be able to find one in "new old stock" from local or online parts distributors, or a used one on eBay.

These GE Cafe models are often repairable at a reasonable price.

See for details and to ask more questions if needed.

Having difficulty getting old spacemaker oven out in order to install new.

There are two screws coming into the top front accessed inside the cabinet it is mounted to. the rear of the unit is hung on clips on the bracket screwed to the wall behind it. Take out the two screws ( sometimes hidden under paint or shelf liner) and have someone hold the front up. Then push up on the whole oven and pull it out towards you. ( get help it is kind of heavy). dont forget to unplug it, and feed the cord down as you pull the microwave out. sometimes you have to pull hard, as the pins on the bracket get bent during installation.

Want to remove microwave to install new one.

there are a few ways these can be hung/removed , one is bolting it to the cabinets above it , check for bolts inside the cabinet.
the other way is the bracket in the back of the unit may have a hook or pin around it for a release.
they hide these behind the grill covers on the top or the bottom as well.
let me know how it works out.

Installation of GE Microwave Oven

We have changed out a GE for another same brand, newer model. You will need two people to make the change-one of the two must be strong enough to support the unit after you remove the 3 bolts that hold it into the cabinet above. You will see these screws in the bottom shelf of the cabinet above your unit. A driver drill w/ the socket attachment to fit these "screws" would make it go faster. You'll need a step stool or a step ladder to get above the unit. There is a power cord that plugs into an outlet-make sure you have unplugged this before starting.While one is supporting the unit, the other is unscrewing the three bolts, When screws are out, the person on the ladder should come down and help w/ the unit removal. The unit is tipped forward to release it from the wall, as it is hooked into a bracket affixed to the wall. When you tip it forward, both of you should be prepared to lift it off the bracket. It helps to have the way cleared and a table or countertop ready on which to set it. BTW, My microwave installer did not use the flange provided to seal the vent around the cutout in the lower shelf of the upper cabinet. Removing ours, I can see why, there is no way to get the unit lined up w/ the flange and the duct and still tip it into the provided cut out. We bought metal sticky duct tape to seal it, and used the opportunity to reseal the above cut outs as well. I think some cabinets are constructed around the microwave installation, and if so, you could use the existing flange set up. When you are ready to put in the new one, do it in reverse, but schedule some clean up time in between, the grease finds a way of eluding all systems and you'll want to 409 it before putting in your new one. If this is too mu8ch for you, ask an installer or a neighbor to help-it doesn't require an electrician. You might want to ok into what GE is doing these days so your aren't dissappointed w/ the new unit after such a successful run with your first purchase.
