That's hard to quantify specifically, but the doors use a pretty strong polycarbonate in most cases.

I would say it took a good bump or hit to crack it.

LG door panel separating


DO NOT use this microwave in the current condition it is in- please! Although microwaves do not emit ionizing radiation, it does emit non-ionizing radiation and electromagnetic fields- and there is a lot of research studies being done possibly linking microwave exposure to cancer.
If your microwave is in that bad a shape, bring it to an authorized microwave repair shop or junk it and buy a new one.

Door frame on microwave broke apart


If it is out of warranty, I'd just buy another. Most repairs would cost more than a replacement nowadays.

Oven stsarts by itself and after about a minute desplays an F2 error random problem has ocurred about 3 times, seems to have started after boiling items on stove under microwave


"F2" means you have a shorting membrane keypad. If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

On KHMS155LS-series models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the "control panel frame assembly" which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.


You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

I need to know how much force you would have to put on a microwave door to crack it on the outer frame


That's hard to quantify specifically, but the doors use a pretty strong polycarbonate in most cases.

I would say it took a good bump or hit to crack it.

Tripping of circuit breaker


Check what other appliances are on your circuit. What goes off when the breaker is tripped. You may need to relocate the microwave to a different circuit. Try to stay away from the refrigerator or AC circuits.

How to remove the outter door frame on the GE Microwave


You need to use the entire correct model number at their site, but you can find a helpful exploded view PDF diagram by searching for "Repair Part" at the GE parts site: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ Normally you can separate the door panels without removing the door. I've included a diagram from a Sharp model that might help. If you do have to remove the door, you have to be sure you reinstall it exactly where and how it was, or you may get microwave leakage. You should definititely mark the locations of all the hardware before disassembly.
