Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Door is hard to open

ON GE Spacemaker it appears the door hinges have "sagged" a little or something causing the door to stick a bit when pulling open. Can hinges be tightened, replaced, etc.? Or can the problem be something else? Clsoming the door appears to not have any issues.

You can solve this yourself by removing door pins and straighting the hinges

Door hard open


It sounds like the hinges are worn out or broken. Probably cheaper to buy a new one that to fix the old one.

The next time the oven is running, wiggle the door without pulling it open. If the oven stops, you have a problem with worn hinges or latches, or a bad door switch.

I ordered and received a replacement door for my 2002 spacemaker ge microwave. The lady I spoke with said I would be able to install it myself. I figured there would be directions in the box explaining...


HELLO.

Below is the solution to replace your microwave door.

Unplug the oven from the outlet and/or shut off the gas valve. Open the old door completely and unlock the hinges by pushing the hinge out toward you and down toward the door. Slightly close the door and lift the door up and toward you.


Install the new door. Make sure the wall oven door hinges are aligned to go into the rectangular wall oven slots. Place the hinges into the slots. The hinges should "catch" on the slots comfortably.


Ensure the door is fully opened and push the hinge locks into an upright position. The two hinge locks should rest on top of the two hinges that are inserted in the wall oven slots.


Close the door and open it several times to make sure the door is properly opening and closing. Replug the oven back into the outlet and/or turn the gas valve back on.

Thanks.

GE Spacemaker microwave model JVM130J - handle loose


Yes, you're right about the screws. The inner door is held by clips. Just pop it out using a butter knife or something similar. You might need to remove the door from hinges first (It's been too long after I repaired one of these, so I don't remember exactly).

On the GE JVM 1650 Spacemaker microwave, how do I replace the door?


If replacing the entire door, all that is required is to open the door all the way open and lift straight up on the hinge side of the door. The door will lift off the hinge pins. You may have to remove the upper grill cover (if equipped) on some models for better access. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My frigidaire microwave door is sagging and is about to fall off


EASY get a machine screw, nut with washer. I believe I used a 1/8" machine screw.....(find something small to fit in the hole on the bottom hinge.

First step, take 3 screws off bottom to expose hinge area. Have someone hold it or support it so wires to the light do not pull out,.

Pop the machine screw through the front and then with your fingers get the washer an nut and tighten down.
If you want the professsional look. Paint the machine screw white first with a enamel white paint.

Frigidaire gallery microwave door sags


Repairing the loose, detached hinge is simple.
First buy a pop rivet tool and 1/8'' or 3mm rivets for about $16 at lowes
Second remove the door. There is a little plastic pop tab on the inside top corner of the door by the hinge that keeps the door from lifting off of the hinge pins. Use a 1 inch putty knife or maybe a butter knife and pry from the bottom crack. Once tab is off the entire door can be lifted off.
Third, line up the little holes in the bracket with the little holes in the microwave face. Insert a pop rivet in the hole and squeeze the tool till it pops off. I put one 3mm rivet on the top hinge and one on the bottom.
No drilling needed on my Fridgidaire PLMV169DCd microwave. I guess u could drill a 1/8'' hole thru the microwave face and the hinge bracket if there isn't one on your model.
