Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
My daugther cooked popcorn in a metal bowl in the microwave. There is noticable damage to the inside of the door. More specifically the inside of the door has burn mark and small section (maybe 1/8'') is actually burned out. The exterior of the door does not show any signs of damage. The microwave does appear to work properly,but I am concerned that there maybe some leakage of micrwave energy if I us it.
The glass if you look at it has a screen sandwiched inbetween glass that dicapates the energy from exiting through glass. If it is burned to that depth then concern would be a priority. The screen should still work as normaly would,but if it is bare to the interior then it might get heated when unit is operating.Replacing glass is not to bad to do,the inner side has plastic insert that snaps in and can be removed by prying it out < using small flat tool such as slim puddy knife and then ther may be a few retainers for glass> it snaps in from outer edge.

Buy a detector to test your microwave to be sure it is not leaking radiation. The detectors range in price from ten dollars to about thirty five dollars and can be purchased in most hardware stores. If you discover that the microwave is leaking radiation, never try to repair this appliance yourself. Take the microwave to a professional for repair. All things considered though, the microwave oven is fairly inexpensive these days it may be a better idea to just purchase a new one.
