This should be a fairly simple procedure. To replace most microwave oven doors, all you have to do is open the door as wide as it will open and then lift straight up. The door will come off the hinge mounting pins and lift off. Install the new door by holding it in the open position and aligning it properly on the hinge pins. NOTE: On some models, you may have to remove the upper trim above the door. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have further questions.

On our GE Spacemaker model JVM1350 the socket for the surface/nite light is loose enough that tie bulb and socket wiggle when the door is opened or closed such that the light flickers off and on. I thought...


In most cases the bottom panel can be removed if not the whole unit will have to be dropped. If the bulb is not loose u can bend the center conductor of the socket out for better connection. Or just replace the socket.

I have a whirlpool microwave model GH7155XKT. The door cover is cracked badly and I ordered and received the replacement part. I can not figure out how to replace the Choke or Cover


Hi deflcsw,
I see you need a manual on how to replace you Microwave Door.
I checked the Manual does not have info regarding how to replace the Door just the Bulb and the Filters in it see here .
To be able to get information on how to replace the Microwave door you will need to contact Whirlpool 1-800-253-1301, you may need the Model and serial number so they can provide you info about the door replacement over the Phone if the door cannot be replaced by you then they can reffer you to a local center near your address for the replacement to take place or possibly get soemone out to replace it for you.
I hope this helps.
Have a nice day, Thank you for choosing Fixya,

Faceplate of door by lower L/H hinge cracked. How do I remove the door to replace the Faceplate?


Front doors are attached inside the microwave at the top and bottom of the oven cavity. Top case has to come off using, likely, security torx screw drivers.
Remove the top hinge.
Remove the bottom hinge.
Door falls off.
Replace the front panel of the door.
Reinsert the lower hinge with the door, close and latch the door.
Holding the door firmly to the microwave, tighten the door hinge. Replace the top hinge.
(On some units, both hinges need to be installed at the same time. Use masking tape to hold the lower hinge - makes it easier.)

Microvent is coming loose on the bottom of mounting.


Generally, these units are held to a backing plate with a pair of screws that are accessed by removing the vent plate above the door. There are a couple of Philips screws. Inside...at each end, there is a slot head screw head on a rod. Support the unit and back these screws out. The unit will then pivot from the bottom away from the wall. Detach it and then repair the issues with the hold bracket. Warning: these units are heavy!

Door handle


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) here that demonstrates how it's done.

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

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Door crack


Doors can be purchased, but they usually aren't cheap. Door panels can be purchased, but usually only the INNER panel. You can also get the door latches and handles. I don't know, however, if Sharp has any of the outer door components available without having to purchase a whole door. Refer to your owner's manual to see if there is a part listing index. If you can't find any part information, post back with your complete model number (located around the door opening) and I can see if I can find a part number for you. Hope this helps you.

Door spring


this model is very tricky you will damage the inner frame if your not experienced ,call for service and save your money,there are 2 springs inside the frame that criss/cross and they may look alike but are not,when you undo the screws the door glass will let go and fall to the floor if you don't know and crack the inner fram assy. thats plastic ,there are 4 screws that hold the door together that you can see and 2 more inside you can't. the 2 on the bottom of the door that support the glass are hard to getat.the micro wave oven can be seperated from the bottom unit and pulled foward for access of screws.
