Question about GE JVM1490 Convection/Microwave Oven
JVM1490SD 003 is the model number. Can we order a replacement part? Do we need a serviceperson to put it back on or can we install it?
You can easily perform this repair on your own and save the cost of labor charges and a service fee. Go to appliancepartspros.com and type in the model number you provided. The door handle is located under Section 1 as item number 1801. Make sure you order the correct color.
To access the door handle mounting screws, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to simply pry the plastic up and work your way gradually around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.
The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
