Yes. That's the door latch.

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.

How to remove and replace microwave door key


You must remove the inside plastic door liner that surrounds the glass. It just snaps into place so usea small flat blade screw driver to pry it out. You can then replace the door key.
If the spring has detached from the door a the outer door must be replaced.

The plastic door handle on our GE Spacemaker XL microwave oven (JVM1341WW 002) broke. I ordered and now have replacement handle and screws onhand. How do I gain access to inside of the door to replace...


I do not know your unit specifically but a lot of them you have to start by, slowly, from the inside of the door, lifting up on the choke that runs along the outer inside edge of the door. It looks like a plastic trim part about 3/4 of an inch wide. You slowly work around the whole door unit you get it popped out. a butter knife or steak knife works pretty well . I just use a small flat head screw driver The screws for the handle are behind that choke seal. Usually 2 Phillips head screws. The choke part just snaps in place and has no screws to put it back, just push back in place and you will hear it snap as you go. Be careful the plastic tabs are easy to break off

I need to change the door catch, so how i take the door apart to replace the catch ??


if you mean the door hook inside the door this is quite easy you need a flat small bladed screwdriver to split apart the plastic inner part of door from the outer keep working around till you have released all the catches there are several, the inner skin will pull away revealing the hook and a spring the hook just slides out refit new hook with spring and reassemble. easy.

Door Handle


If at all possible try getting an exploded image break down to see what needs to happen, basically you have two things in your way one is the "choke"...the large black rectangle on the inside of the door this has to be pryed off carefully all the way around and lifted off, pocket knife works great to get it started. next you will have the front door assembly snapped onto the mesh screen and frame of the door itself. Once you have seperated the front door you will see the screws for the handle, DONT OVERTIGHTEN these screws when you reinstall.

Hi, how do you change the door handle on this microwave? I have a new handle.. but cant see how to open the casing


Inside the microwave door between the glass and the edge is a plastic insert called a choke. This snaps into place and needs to be removed to expose the handle screws. Microwave repairs are not for the do it your self person. They should be made by a qualified service technician so the unit can be leak check after making any repair.

Door Key Broke on Microwave Door


To replace the inner part of the latch is actually quite easy. Remove the glass tray from inside, then unplug the unit. Take to a flat surface and stand on edge so that the door will open flat. On the inside is a plastic trim that is just clipped on. Pop this off carefully and you will now see the assembly you need to replace. Note where the spring is anchored to the door before taking it apart. Put a small amount of lubricant on the guide pins of the new catch (petroleum jelly works great).

NEED TO REPLACE THE WHITE PLASTIC CATCH ON NEXT TO THE CONTROL PANEL AS IT SNAPPED OFF AS MY SON SLAMMED THE DOOR


By the nature of the oven main face plate and the locking latch being attached to the safety system the replacement cost is usually higher than a replacement microwave oven.

In your case replacing the microwave with another one is more sensible. Your oven is an obscure model as it is, I'd suggest a sharp brand.

Removing the microwave door


In many cases, microwave door panels are held together by hidden hooks or catches that ave to be separated by a thin, strong tool such as a putty knife. I've attached a photo that should serve as a good example.

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.
