SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: GE spacemake microwave handle door

Apparently the part number for the black handle is WB15X10020 and the white one is WB15X335.

You can order either and find find helpful exploded view diagrams here.

Enter the part number to order the part, and enter your model number to find the exploded views.

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.

SOURCE: Microwave humming when you shut door

Do the inside light, turntable and internal cooling fan ALL come on when the door is closed (without pressing any keys) , or just one or more of those?

Does it actually heat when you shut the door (without pressing any buttons)?

(You can put a cup of cold water in it for a minute to test it)

I would first suspect a shorted door switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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.

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

If it's not a door switch issue, I would say it has a stuck relay on the control circuit board.

We regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service in about a week.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

SOURCE: The door handle broke off my GE microwave

Actually the door handle CAN be replaced at a cost much less than pruchasing an entire new microwave oven. And, YOU can repair this yourself and save the cost of a service call. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement

If the model number is correct, the part number is WB15X322. The cost is about $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different than the one listed, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you

Yes it can be replaced. But first make sure the noise isn't coming from the guide roller assembly or coupler which is the plastic part in the bottom of the microwave that turns the turntable. .

I have a ge Spacemaker XL microwave model JVM1640BB. The unit does not heat. Everything seems to work properly. When started the light and turntable goes on. After about 2 seconds you can hear a slight...


More than likely it's the magnetron, chances are it may still be under warranty. Online owners manual states 5 year warranty on magnetron. Part only, service call and installation not included. As of 12/16/10, I spoke with GE rep and new magnetron is on it's way to me. They require serial number, and will let you know if it's still under warranty. Installation appears to be simple, UNPLUG MICROWAVE THEN MAKE SURE YOU DISCHARGE CAPACITOR. INJURY OR POSSIBLE DEATH IF NOT DISCHARGED PROPERLY. Google how to install magnetron and discharge capacitor. It will save you approx $ 250 - 300 doing it yourself. Hope this helps. Be Safe

JVM1640BB 004 GE spacemaker Not heating


Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptoms, as well as the answers to these questions:

- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

(A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.L

We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.

GE JE1540WW03 Microwave Oven


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: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ The exploded view should give you some idea of how it comes apart and goes back together.
