When you remove the door, it's absolutely critical to get it back on exactly as it was, or microwave leakage can result. I only recommend removal of the door in cases of several damage or when separate door parets are not available. Door parts should be available for this model. You can find an exploded view of this model by entering your full model number at the GE parts Web site at: The exploded view should give you some idea of how it comes apart and goes back together.

Can a GE microwave door handle be replaced?

Is this an over-the-range microwave oven? If so, you can usually remove the door by first removing the grill vent above the door (by removing 2 or 3 screws first). With the grill vent removed, you can usually remove the door by opening it and lifting it up off its hinges. Place the door down on a blanket. Using a putty knife, you can pry out the black plastic RF shield (or door gasket). This is the most tricky part, and if you are not experienced, you may break that plastic since it is rather brittle. And if you do break it or crack it, then it must be replaced or the microwave oven will leak microwaves. But once you've got that removed, then you should be able to see and remove the screws that hold the handle to the door. After you replace the handle, it's a simple matter to push the door gasket back into place and re-install the door.

It depends on the model number, but I'm guessing you mean it's an over the range model.

If so, you only have to remove the grille and controller assembly to get to the door switch mounts.

Our help file on door switches is here.

A YouTube video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes is here.

How to remove door from ge advantium 120 microwave. i broke the handle off the microwave and have another on order. now i find that i have to take the face off to install the new handle.GE

The door handle can easily be replaced on MOST microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:

The average cost for a replacement handle usually runs about $20 - $40. Replacements (if required) may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.
The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or removed. And, you do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.

It would help, however, to know the number of the microwave oven you are referring to. All ovens are not designed the same and are assembled in different ways. What I have provided you with is the basic information that applies to most ovens. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a GE Profile Spacemaker XL Sensor Mod # JVM 1350AW 02 Microwave oven. How do I replace the door assembly? Is there a danger of elecrical shock involved?

You're usually better off just replacing the bad parts instead of the whole door.

If so, you can separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) then you can replace separate parts.

You can't remove the handle without doing this.

You can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

Ge microwave oven jes1288 light bulb replacement


The light bulb assembly (bulb and socket are all one piece) is part number

It is located on the air duct assembly where the door switches are mounted.

You can see an exploded view diagram here.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb assembly.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

See these links before proceeding:

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

If you're not able to find the bulb assembly at your local appliance parts store, you can order one here.
