How do I remove the front control panel on a ge profile je2160sf01?

My microwave is a built in. I removed the stainless steel skirt and there are no visible screws. I assumed the panel was a latch type that needed to be pushed up to unlatch and then removed, but the panel won't budge. Again there are no screws securing the panel in place."

On most over the range ovens, the screws for the control panel are on the top of the control panel. You usually have to remove the air deflector above it to acccess the screws.

SOURCE: Outside venting GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800

Your vent flap could be taped or it could be faulty installation not allowing the vent to open. If you take the front vent cover off, you should be able to reach in above the fan unit and gently push the vent flap up, it should move freely with no binding. If it doesn't it is taped or blocked. If it is taped, gently putting upward pressure on the flap might release the tape. If that doesn't work the vent installation is blocking the flap. You might have to remove the unit from the wall (two people to do this) or disassemble the vent duct above the microwave and rework the interface for clearance.

hope this helps,

SOURCE: My 3 1/2 yr old GE profile spacemaker microwave stopped heating.

Some components can be replaced from the front, but not the high voltage parts including the magnetron.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here. They make it easier to remove from the wall.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

Some manufacturers will send you the magnetron to do it yourself. If nothing else, you can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself.

GE Customer Service is here if you want to request a magnetron.

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

SOURCE: where can i buy a control panel for a ge profile

If you have pads failing on the membrane keypad or an "F3" error, you can buy the control panel assembly with a new keypad already attached here.

(You will need to enter your full model number from the tag in or on the unit, such as HVM1540WW001, etc.)

If you have other trouble, and it is the control board ("smart board") that is at fault, you can buy a new one here or you can get it repaired here for only $39.95 in most cases.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here. They're our favorite supplier.

Next, disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame or subassembly, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

Replace a fuse on GE Profile model jvm1871SH02


Unplug microwave or shut off house breaker. Remove grill or cover that goes across the top of door and control panel.Remove screw that holds control panel on and lift up on control panel. It will tilt downward and has 2 tabs at the bottom that go into slots. It can be lifted out of those slots.The fuse should be seen at the top area in the microwave behind where the control panel was mounted. Fuse is usually small 1/4 round type fuse like old type car fuses that were glass but the micro fuse will be either a white of gray ceramic fuse not glass. Some are 15 amp some are 20 amp. Usually stamped on end of fuse.

GE PEB1590 microwave oven. Interior light burned


Remove the screws from around the rear of the oven and slide the cabnet off to the rear. You should be able to access the bulb from here.
WARNING: any time you work on a microwave you have to be careful of the capacitor. Unpluge the microwave and discharge the capacitor with a large screwdriver with a plastic handle.
Be careful.

GE Profile Spacemaker 2.0 - black buttons on panel for vent, boost, and light broke . Any way to replace the buttons and take the panel off?


I had the same problem. The front plate is tabbed into place and removes with a flat tip screwdriver and prying in various spots to pop out the tabs. Once the front stainless plate comes off, you need to get behind the black buttons. There is a circuit board behind the buttons, which they make contact with. The problem with mine was the circuit board pushed beyond two metal tabs that keep it in place, so that the buttons were unable to make contact. I used a curved tool to pull the circuit board back forward in front of the tabs and into place. I put the front plate back on and it works like a champ.
