The 2 hooks(latch) inside the door have lost spring tension.


For no apparent reason, the latch broke on the 9187 ST. Take the door off of the microwave,which isn't too hard. Rotate the door to 90 degrees, lift up, and slide it to the left. Place the door on the counter, latch side up. Use a thin knife or screwdriver to lift the panel that covers the latch. It is very easy to remove it from the door. Then slide the latch up and lift is out. The spring is under the latch. The clip on the latch that held the spring was fractured. So, I drilled a tiny hole in the body piece from where the clip extended. I reattached the spring to the latch, replaced the panel, replaced the door, and it is as good as new.

Does the ge spacesaver xl1400 microwave have to mounted or can it just sit on a counter?


Theoretically JVM1400-series microwaves (XL1400 is a meaningless number they put on the ovens) can be used on a counter top, but it's really not safe because it has no feet, and it may slide and fall off the counter.

Also, it will probably not set level on a counter.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If you need mounting hardware or other parts, you can get them by by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

How to install latch and spring in microwave door


You need to know where the 'catches' are inside the choke cover on the door to remove it carefully without breaking anything or marring the cover. You might get inside and find that the post for mounting the return spring has broken and that is part of the outer door panel.

LG LMVM1935SB OVER COUNTER MICROWAVE


The unit will work just fine on the counter, but obviously the lights underneath won't show and the exhaust fan won't be of much use.
Otherwise, it's perfectly ok!
