Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
Hi, the microwave door has a screen like inside finish which makes cleaning impossible. There always seems to be food particles that will not clean up. What to do?

Shorted switch in the door latch assembly.wihout the full model number I can't tell how to get to it, but usually one needs to remove top grille, remove screw holding the control panel, remove control panel. Good luck.

Our JE1860SH was also sparking after a few seconds. The GE tech pulled the upper round disk and found the problem. The plastic was burned and the round metal which is behind the plastic dome was arching with the frame. Lasted seven years expected more especially from a GE product. So my suggestion is to remove the dome and check it out.

I have a Kenmore with similar issues.
Anyway, good luck with this. Hope someone has an answer for you (and me).
Mine has a open slot on the top front of the door. Kinda like a double plate window execpt for the opening in front. Why is this there? I don't know. Weird design. But it leaves for the possibilty of liquid to splash in there leaving it hard to clean (like impossible).
I'm thinking I have to completely remove and disect the door.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part
