Microwave door doesn't close properly.

How do I remove cover on JEM31 microwave

Remove the screws on the back of the cover. There might also be some on the sides. The cover should slide backward and/or upward after the screws are removed.

Light bulb has gone, can't see where it is located or how to change the bulb

Do as follows. Do not connect the microwave oven to mains while doing the following activities. Even the accidental switching ON will harm you from the microwaves. Open the top cover by unscrewing side screws & the screws at the back. Lift the top cover by tilting upwards from rear end. Remove the wave guide of magnetron & there you will find the bulb. Wave guide is rectangular small ducting (pipe enclosure) to guide the microwaves from the magnetron.

The microwave door seems to be loose. The door will remain shut, but the light is on in the microwave and it won't run until I push upwards on the door. How can I tighten the door hinge?

you need a door interlock switch bracket adjustment; or, possibly one of the microswitches replaced on that bracket. it is behind that control panel.

Hi, I have a Kenmore 87103 microwave and it has started acting up lately. When I place something in the microwave and set the timer, the timer counts down however the microwave doesn't work (no sound and...

Mine also does the same thing however I only need to lift the door upwards slightly (after it's closed) and it engages the High Voltage Transformer, thus working as normal.

Once you know that, you can get it to work every time. I beleive the clips on the door don't properly stop latch in correctly and the safety feature keep the microwave from acutally turning truly "ON".

Food won't heat up

Hello, I had the same problem, and just fixed mine. Start by turning on your microwave (on mine, the light turned on and timer worked, but the fan nor the plate turned)... push the door upward and see if the microwave turns on... (mine did). so far so good. open the door and take the upper hinge cap off with flat head screwdrive. take the door off and place a small washer on the bottom hinge, put the door back on. your microwave should be good now. essentially, the door just needs to be pushed up a bit so it will work.
good luck, hope that works for you...

IMHO this is an expensive microwave and it is pretty poor that the door mechanism is so weak considering that it gets constant stress from opeing and closing the door and especially since the part that breaks is integral to the expensive control panel. I have the same problem with my microwave after only 2 1/2 years of use. After some fiddling I got it apart as follows. Remove the three screws that hold on the top grille (above the door) on and lift off the grille. Turn off the power to the microwave at the switch panel. Remove the two screws above the control display that are now visible after removing the top grille. Do NOT pry this panel off, slide it upwards to unlatch the hooks and lift it off carefully. There are a lot of wires which you will have to unplug (note their locations although none of the plugs are interchangeable) and separate the panel from the microwave. You can now check the latch itself and open the door by putting your finger under the lift latch and genly pushing upwards. If the door won't open the problem is in the latch mechanism which can be removed by taking out the two screws on the inside of the case an unplugging the many wires (note locations, a couple of them can be plugged back in the same place). If the problem is the same as the one I had it is in the actualy release button assembly where one of the brackets are broken. You will either have to replace the whole display & control panel or glue the bracket back together. I'm in the process of trying to glue it with epoxy but I can't vouch for how reliable the repair will be. Remove the screws that secure the control panel metal reinforcement and unplug the flat cable then remove it carefully. If either of the plasting pivot brackets moves it is broken. With the metal plate removed the problem should be obvious.

Turns off after 3 sec

Usually this indicates failure of the magnetron and/or the inverter. Neither is easy to test without specialised HV equipment. Often the cause is operating the oven without anything in it. If this has happened, it will generally be failure of the magnetron.

Replacement of the magnetron is relatively easy (about 15 minutes) and the inverter a little longer but if you do not have the knowledge/skills please do not do it - there are very dangerous (deadly) voltages associated with magnetrons even after they have been switched off.

Cost of magnetrons ranges upwards from USD25 to USD100 (from Panasonic spare parts) and inverters range upwards from USD125. The cost of parts is often the reason microwave ovens are not repaired.

Stuck Microwave door

In most cases this is due to a broken door opening lever or loose or broken door latch / hook parts. They can only be accessed and examined if the cover is removed from the microwave. In many over the range models, you can access the door parts by removing the control panel assembly. Sometimes you may be able to get it open by pushing up gently on the bottom of the door while pushing the button, in case you need to empty it.
