Question about GE JVM1660 Microwave Oven
I just closed the door on my GE JVM 1660 SpacemakerXL oven, I heard an odd noise and then realized the latches will not latch to close the door. I'm wondering if something broke inside the door? I didn't see any parts fall off, but heard something odd. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking
out of the door)
there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring
is off inside.
Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
We have critical safety & disassembly info at our site.
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
