Question about GE Microwave Ovens
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
Could you take a photo of the oven, the door and the hinges and show us?

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.

TIP: Go to the web and type www.partselect.com enter your model number then scoll down to your part. Click to enlarge exploded diagram on left. Veiw enlarged diagram at top of page. You can print the entire diagram for exact assembly by holding your pointer in the upper left hand corner of diagram. Select the print icon. Now you have what you need. The lower hinge attaches the same as the top. If you found any of these suggestions helpful, please rate my solution. D. Lange

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.
By the way, where did you get the part? I'm trying to find a good Goldstar / LG source to recommend.
