    Same problem.

  • thebigragu Dec 27, 2007

    Has run just great for 2 yrs. then started up and sounded like the plate was struggling to turn then popped breaker, reset breaker and now nothing. No lights-nothing.. The circuit is working after reset. Turning the plate manually seems like the plate motor is bad as it's really hard to turn. My guess would be that it's cheaper to buy another than to fix.

    Does anyone have an answer to this question, we got the top screw off easy enough but the bottom screw is hidden inside the door panel. How does one gain access to it?

    My handle broke and I want to replace it. I have not found a new one, yet. I will look at the screw placement tonight.

    The botton half of the handle broke. Have not searched for a new handle or door yet.

I fixed it. You need a few thin tools. I used 2 putty knifes and old knife and a long screw driver. The inner cosmetic ring needs to be removed first. The putty knifes and knife can lever in to unlatch the molded in latches. Be cafeful not to break them. The edge along the hinge is most difficult and where I used a long thin screwdriver to release the catches. Remove the visible screws that retain the handle, there are two more screws which are revealed once the front panel is off. The front glass panel is then removed by releasing the catches around the inside perimeter of the window. Remove the glass and the handle will follow. Replace. Done.

Same goes for me. I can get most of the trim off but not the area near the hinge. ! It will cost $100 for GE to come out, and I already own the new handle. Come on GE tell us the secret.

How do i remove the cover to change the light bulb inside?


The bulb is positioned at the top of the oven, accessible only from the outside. You'll need to pull off the top and bottom trim strips, remove the bottom trim strip locators, remove 2 fixing screws from the left edge of the oven (with door open), and the 2 fixing screws from behind the top trim strip. The oven should then just slide out. You only need to pull it out 6 inches or so to gain access to the bulb cover. You'll need a T20 driver to remove the cover, then the bulb unscrews as it has an SES fitting. Bob

The bottom of the door handle broke off. GE spacemaker xl


You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.
