Question about GE Microwave Ovens

Oven door hinge

I took my oven door off to replace broken element, went to put door back on and hinges are in two different positions. The right one is at 90 degree angle with door, left one is down more 130 degrees maybe with door. What do I do? This is my first time fixing something without gorilla glue or duct tape. Please help!!! Thank you

I would suspect a couple of wires are crossed.

GE puts mini-manuals in their units, which have wiring diagrams, schematics, etc. Very handy.

It will be folded up in a small envelope, usually behind the control panel or hidden elsewhere. That should help you.

Door Hinge replacement requires a Microwave Radiation Leak Test be performed after repairs.I am surprised they would sell you the part knowing this. You should have this repaired by a professional for SAFETY sake.

I ordered and received a replacement door for my 2002 spacemaker ge microwave. The lady I spoke with said I would be able to install it myself. I figured there would be directions in the box explaining...


HELLO.

Below is the solution to replace your microwave door.

Unplug the oven from the outlet and/or shut off the gas valve. Open the old door completely and unlock the hinges by pushing the hinge out toward you and down toward the door. Slightly close the door and lift the door up and toward you.


Install the new door. Make sure the wall oven door hinges are aligned to go into the rectangular wall oven slots. Place the hinges into the slots. The hinges should "catch" on the slots comfortably.


Ensure the door is fully opened and push the hinge locks into an upright position. The two hinge locks should rest on top of the two hinges that are inserted in the wall oven slots.


Close the door and open it several times to make sure the door is properly opening and closing. Replug the oven back into the outlet and/or turn the gas valve back on.

Thanks.

Electrolux oven door strained and wont close properly


Don't try to run a microwave oven with a bad door. At a minimum, you probably need to replace the door hinge plates. Unplug the oven and remove the top/bottom cover. Study the hinges and door to see how they come apart.

When you have the door back on and adjusted so it closes flat against the frame all around, take it to an appliance dealer who sells microwave ovens (you can leave the screws out of the cover and take them along in a plastic bag or other container). Have the service tech check for microwave leakage. If it is clean, you can fasten the cover and put the oven back in service. If you have leakage around the door, you may have to readjust the hinges, or the door itself is warped and must be replaced.

Replacing door handle???????


gently pry the plastic from the inside working from the hinges to the corner. you will need to put something in place of the screwdriver when you pull it out to go to the next pry position (about every 2 inches. i use apex bits. you can use anything about the diameter of a cigarette. then the screws for the handle will be exposed . it all snaps back together.

Kitchenaid model KHHS179LSS Microwave oven handle replacement


There is a pin holding the door on upper right hand corner of the door. Holding the door in the open position, lift up on the door a little and remove the pin. The door will come off. There are two screws on the edges of the door on the end where the handle is located. Remove the screws. Now, Take a slim screw driver, and carefully pry between the inside door panel and the ourside door panel starting at the end where the door handle is. Lift the inside of the door out. The opposite end of the inside door panel will come out last. Believe me, this works. Getting it back together is a little bit different, but it snaps back together without using tools. Just put the inside of the door back by laying it down with the handle side down after you have replaced the handle of course. Now, pushing in on the inside of the door panel starting on the handle side, start with lining up the panel and push gently. It will go back into place much much easier than it comes out.

Broken Door Catch Now oven won't work


You can order parts online by entering your full model number (without dashes) here: http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/epartr Chances are the panels separate as shown in the photo I have attached below. Panel replacement can usually be done without removing the door from the microwave. In cases where it is felt that door removal is necessary, I recommend detaching the door from the hinges. I generally do not advise removing the hinges from the microwave. Whenever the hinges are removed, great care must be taken to put them back in the very same position they were in. Failure to do so can cause microwave leakage, which can cause risk of skin burns, fire, and disruption nearby electronic devices. If you still have questions, please feel free to follow up. I appreciate your thoughtful ratings to my reply.

Loose microwave door


My over the range microwave had a loose door, it sagged when it was open but you could lift it to close. Called repair person he said no it could not be fixed. You could see the bottom hinge was loose and slipping. I loosened 3 screws that holds the bottom on the microwave -you have to do this to change the light bulb also. The bottom hinge on the door was loose there was a hole there, so took a screw and nut to hold the hinge in place..I am a 70+year old woman-if I can you can.
