Question about GE JVM1860 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Door glass shattered

We came home from a weekend and the door glass was shattered! I guess that I need to replace the whole door? I can't seem to find out how to remove the door from the microwave in order to fix it. Is there a schematic to help in removal? Thanks! Mike 
P.S. Model number is jvm1860sf001

You really should contact GE customer service. There have been reports of this glass eplosion and they may take care of it for you.

GE Customer Service is here.

If they won't help, you can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

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

Neff b6774N0gb/02. Inner glass shattered. replaced. Internal fuse blown. replaced. Now microwave working (heating water) for approx 5 sec, then switching off, beeping and showing E1 fault. Also display...


Usually if this model stops after approx 3 secs it is an invertor or mag fault. Check that the aerial cover is clean Page 3 of the breakdown part position 315. If this is really grubby it would be the cause of the door shattering. The PTC is not used on the microwave function so may be an additional fault. Check also the alignment of the door switches as this can also cause a similar fault. My best guess is if you remove the mag, you'll probably find scorching on it and it (and the invertor) will need replacing.

The inner door glass shattered and now no power


There's a safty switch which prevents the unit from operating if the door isn't fully closed. When the glass shattered a small piece may have blocked the switch from operating properly. Check around the door seals for any irregularities.

Glass continually shattering on combination neff oven


That's a huge gap.

You might ask their customer service people to authorize the replacement of the whole door or the glass and the inner door panel where the gap is.

If they won't help you, you could clean it thoroughly, then carefully caulk the gap with high temperature caulk.
