Door Hinge replacement requires a Microwave Radiation Leak Test be performed after repairs.I am surprised they would sell you the part knowing this. You should have this repaired by a professional for SAFETY sake.

I ordered and received a replacement door for my 2002 spacemaker ge microwave. The lady I spoke with said I would be able to install it myself. I figured there would be directions in the box explaining...


HELLO.

Below is the solution to replace your microwave door.

Unplug the oven from the outlet and/or shut off the gas valve. Open the old door completely and unlock the hinges by pushing the hinge out toward you and down toward the door. Slightly close the door and lift the door up and toward you.


Install the new door. Make sure the wall oven door hinges are aligned to go into the rectangular wall oven slots. Place the hinges into the slots. The hinges should "catch" on the slots comfortably.


Ensure the door is fully opened and push the hinge locks into an upright position. The two hinge locks should rest on top of the two hinges that are inserted in the wall oven slots.


Close the door and open it several times to make sure the door is properly opening and closing. Replug the oven back into the outlet and/or turn the gas valve back on.

Thanks.

Replace door


If you're replacing the entire door, this is a very simple process that only requires you to open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door lifts off the hinge pins, and the new one can be reinstalled by aligning it back on the hinge pins. (You may have to remove the hinges from the old door and install them on the new one on some models). NOTE: In some cases you may have remove the upper grille guard to accommodate lifting the door. The mounting screws for the guard on located across the top of the oven. If you only need to replace the door handle, it can easily be replaced on MOST microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:

The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or with the door removed. You do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Inner Bootom Door Hinge Broke off...since then it will not turn on...Will that prevent microwave from functioning?


You probably mean the door LATCH broke off. Yes, that will prevent your oven from operating. The door latches operate switches inside to indicate that the door is closed. If the control board doesn't see the right switch settings, it thinks the door is open and won't allow cooking. Replacement latches are available, but you should check with a professional shop to do the repair. If door repairs aren't done correctly, there is a chance of microwave leakage and an unsafe oven.

The door handle broke off my GE microwave


Actually the door handle CAN be replaced at a cost much less than pruchasing an entire new microwave oven. And, YOU can repair this yourself and save the cost of a service call. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

If the model number is correct, the part number is WB15X322. The cost is about $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different than the one listed, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you

On the GE JVM 1650 Spacemaker microwave, how do I replace the door?


If replacing the entire door, all that is required is to open the door all the way open and lift straight up on the hinge side of the door. The door will lift off the hinge pins. You may have to remove the upper grill cover (if equipped) on some models for better access. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
