Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I just have the hole in the film($12) and a small burn mark on door main($50). It looks like I can remove the interior film and wipe off the metal grid. I'd like to clean it off and replace the film.
1. My main concern is if the metal (door main ASM, $50) needs to be painted or can it be left bare?
2. Do I need to unplug and discharge the "stored energy" just to clean and replace the film?
I would prefer not to replace the anything that needs to be unscrewed or
take the door completely off.

I would consider buying a microwave in the near future, or at least not standing there watching your food cook the whole time. The film works with the grid with the small holes in it to eliminate the microwave radiation that the unit produces. A hole in this film compromises the intergrity of the unit. Essentially it would be like tryring to create a dark room with no light and having a hole in your covering, creating an escape for the light to get through.

Sorry I don't have the paint or parts. I mostly do repairs.
The paint should be available at big box stores like Wal-Mart, home improvement centers like Builder's Square, Lowe's, or Home Depot, or hardware stores or local appliance parts stores.
You can order the plastic sheet (called the "door film") here. It is part # WB06X10490.
Be sure the mesh is clean and dry before installing the new film.
We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: Damaged door on microwave
The glass if you look at it has a screen sandwiched inbetween glass that dicapates the energy from exiting through glass. If it is burned to that depth then concern would be a priority. The screen should still work as normaly would,but if it is bare to the interior then it might get heated when unit is operating.Replacing glass is not to bad to do,the inner side has plastic insert that snaps in and can be removed by prying it out < using small flat tool such as slim puddy knife and then ther may be a few retainers for glass> it snaps in from outer edge.

Replacement of the
lamp should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!
this only if you are competent.
But here is a basic method if you are
mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.
The lamp is sat in a housing and its
position is adjacent to the vent holes that it shines through.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity.
Remove the microwave cover. Purchasing a new replacement lamp will be useful as it will give you an idea of what it looks like. Locate the dead lamp remove the lamp and fit the new one. Replace the covers. Plug it back in and try the lamp by opening the door.
Hope this helps.
