Question about GE JTP85 Electric Double Oven
My question: How to remove the GE JTP85 Microwave oven from the "double" microwave/convection set?. I want to (and know how to) replace the failed Magnetron but I need help on removing the Mircrowave unit from the wall. Thank you very much for your help.

Mmmm it's so easy,
First disconect the power, take the cover off, moslitly there would be 5 screws and two tab's on the top.
inside on the right hand side the magnetron it's a sylver box measuring about 4 in x 4 in x 5 in. It will have a plasic cover moslitly that would have to be remove first then on the magnetron there is 4 crews and one connector.
It should fall downard after.
If you have a power supply after the secondary , that may also be your problem.

At first I was concerned but then I realized what it was.
Congrats on their sending you the mag!
How did you convince them to do that? Did they make you sign a waiver?

You can locate it by looking inside the cavity for an area that is perforated.
If this area is not a panel that can be removed, replacing it may (often) require removing a few sheet metal screws along the rear edge of the unit; rarely is the housing held on with more than that.
With the screws removed, lift up on the rear edge and pull toward the back.
DO NOT LEAVE IT PLUGGED IN!
Also, because there are components that may keep a charge (capacitors) for hours, I would recommend letting it sit unplugged overnight before removing the housing.
The bulb may be either a cylindrical type such as many sewing machines use or a smaller version of a standard bulb.
Neither of which anyone ever has at home, of course.
Any of the large 'home improvement' stores should have these 'made in China' bulbs at an inflated price.
