How to remove the outter door frame on the GE Microwave

Hi, I have an over the range GE microwave (model #JVM1650S004)...the black plastic outter door frame has cracked and broken off. Can anyone please talk me through taking the door off so that I can replace the outer door frame. I've found the frame from several parts places for about $50, and it seems pretty straight forward..but I can't figure out how to get the door off of the microwave. Thanks, Tom I have a GE Advantium 120 and the handle on the door has broken off. I have purchased a new handle and now I need to know how to get the door off to install the new handle. Any ideas ?? Thanks

SOURCE: How to remove the outter door frame on the GE Microwave

I think some of my cleaning solution seeped down in the front door of my microwave and now it has this oranged burned spot in places. It looks like the door is dirty but the residue is actually in between the glass of the door. Any suggestions for what to do? Should I try to take off the door and clean it or buy another door for it?
Thanks! Amanda in Alabama

Can a GE microwave door handle be replaced?


Is this an over-the-range microwave oven? If so, you can usually remove the door by first removing the grill vent above the door (by removing 2 or 3 screws first). With the grill vent removed, you can usually remove the door by opening it and lifting it up off its hinges. Place the door down on a blanket. Using a putty knife, you can pry out the black plastic RF shield (or door gasket). This is the most tricky part, and if you are not experienced, you may break that plastic since it is rather brittle. And if you do break it or crack it, then it must be replaced or the microwave oven will leak microwaves. But once you've got that removed, then you should be able to see and remove the screws that hold the handle to the door. After you replace the handle, it's a simple matter to push the door gasket back into place and re-install the door.

How do you remove and then replace the handle on microwave model JVM1339BW002


Open the door and you'll see a plastic frame that goes around the inside of the door. That has to be removed VERY carefully by prying it out.It breaks very easily. I use a putty knife. When thats off you will see two screws that hold the handle in place.

How do I replace the frame for the door? Is it


Actually it is more realistic buying the door and glass complete. Price difference is not excessive. Removing plastic d/layer "glass" dissrupts the seal and small nitty gritty items break. Must be 100%good seal for microwave action.

I would like to replace the microwave oven handle.


The inside of the door has a Black Plastic frame about 1 inch wide. This frame can be removed by placing a thin screwdriver between it and the outer door frame and gently (very gently) prying it away from the door. It takes a little wiggling of the frame but it will unlock. On each end of the handle is a philips head screw that holds the handle to the door.

Splatters between the screen and the glass on the microwave door


You can find helpful exploded view diagrams for most brands by entering your full model number here.

Those diagrams should show if the screen is glued onto the glass, etc. If so, it makes it harder to clean.

Repalce Door handle on GE Profile model number SCA1000DBB03


There're some half a dozen or so small screws securing that frame to the door face. These screws must be removed. Then, the frame can be pried out by releasing the plastic snappers (with a flat screwdriver) while in the same time gently helping the frame to detach from these snappers' hold and the door face. It's a tidious, somewhat annoying task. The snappers may and will even likely break in the process, but aren't needed for the frame to be resecured to the door face after the handle is replaced. Note that the broken ends of the handle must be held with a pair of pliers or a flat screwdriver needs to be inserted bewteen each of them and the hole, or the ends will turn with the screws. This is because the metal screws' grip of the plastic handle broken ends is very strong and will otherwise won't get separated.Once the above is accomplished, reassembling the door is a brease.

P.S.: The dual end latch may interfere somewhat with the job and can be removed for the prtocess to be undertaken without it disturbing. It's easy to remove and replace that latch, including its spring.

How do I replace the door handle on microwave?


Once you follow the youtube instructions to remove the inside cover you are ready for the next step.
Remove the six small screws that are adjacent to the window. After this the front plastic is held in only by plastic clips to the metal door. The plastic clips and the screws together hold this together.

Remove the entire door by lifting up and move it to a flat service. If the top vent cover prevents this just remove the two screws on top of the microwave and pull the vent cover off.

With the door lying flat you can pull the plastic frame out on top and bottom and see how the clips work. Now just work you way around the frame until it separates.

Install handle and reassemble in reverse order.

How to remove the outter door frame on the GE Microwave


You need to use the entire correct model number at their site, but you can find a helpful exploded view PDF diagram by searching for "Repair Part" at the GE parts site: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ Normally you can separate the door panels without removing the door. I've included a diagram from a Sharp model that might help. If you do have to remove the door, you have to be sure you reinstall it exactly where and how it was, or you may get microwave leakage. You should definititely mark the locations of all the hardware before disassembly.
