Microwave oven door - interior scratch

Our GE Spacemaker Microwave Oven door has developed a scratch on the inside, exactly where the bottom of the door meets the oven floor. This was covered by a thin veneer and while I did not use any abrasive product, it has just worn through. I cleaned the oven gently as needed, and had just recently wiped it clean. Then when I next used it, it make a horrible noise as it came on, so I stopped it immediately and looked for the source. Even though it is about ten years old, we don't use the microwave all that often, so I would prefer to repair rather than replace. I don't know the model number but it has an exhaust hood. Can we just put a strip of tape over the scratch? If so, what would be best: adhesive, masking, duct, etc. I know we should avoid anything with nylon fibers as that could ignite. Thanks.

Why does my ge spacemaker jvm1740dd1cc no longer heats and the turntable does not work?

Bad door switch. Look for burnt terminals on one of the door switches. Replace the switch and cut off the burnt terminals and splice on new ones.

Cannot access screw for lower part of handle blocked by interior assembly

The inside of the door must come apart. Be careful that screen inside the door is actually a choke to keep the microwave radiation in. Make sure that you replace each and every screw and everything else just as you took it apart.

Good luck

I have a GE spacemaker. It releases electric volts when is turned on . Needs to be changed or can be repaired?


Do you mean "sparks" inside the oven cavity when it is operating ?

If so, check for grease spots on the wave guide cover or scratches on the oven liner. Scratches can be touched up with touch up paint and wave guide cover`s can be replaced.

Hope that help`s, good luck.
