Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
The door latch is not the part inside the door, but the part in the oven body, near to the control panel.
The part in the oven door is called the door brake, and it is just a plastic part that is held by a spring inside the door.
I will have to mention that taking apart a microwave oven door is a major job, and must be done by an experienced repairer. After the repair the microwave must be tested for radiation leaks. A badly repaired MW door can turn your oven into a danger for you and your family.
As I mentioned opening the door is quite a complicate job, because if you do it wrongly you will damage the door , or the door vinyl seal, and you won't be able to reassemble it.
Microwave door outer frame is sealed, and must be opened using a special tool. Without the tool, the job can be done using a putty knife or a similar tool. As explained , there are chances to damage the door.
Here how to open the outer frame.
The outer frame is part 1804 on diagram.
Once the outer frame is out, you will find the screws holding the inner frame. Removing the inner frame it is easier. After removing screws the inner frame will come out , and the lock brake can be replaced.
Please do not forget to leave feedback.
Here the diagram:
