The door doesn't open


please follow the instruction and fix it. God bless you

  1. Open leverCheck your microwave lever to determine if it is damaged. If it is broken, simply replace the lever to get your microwave door fully functional again.
  2. Door springResponsible for keeping downward pressure on the door hook, the microwave door spring can begin to malfunction. If this part is broken and prevents you from opening your microwave door, replacement is necessary.
  3. Door latchOne reason your microwave door may not open properly is a broken door latch. Located inside the microwave, the door latch manipulates the door hook to keep the door closed for safety and top performance. If broken, the door could become stuck in the locked position.
  4. Door hookIf your microwave door will not release properly, the door hook could be damaged. Located inside the door, the door hook is made of plastic and prone to breakage with extended use or age. As this part is unable to be repaired, the only option is to replace it.
  5. Button or button springIf the microwave door will not open, it could be an internal failure of the button or button spring. If it is determined that either of these parts is the source, both are replaceable and it is recommended that they be installed at the same time.
  6. Handle actuatorIf the microwave door will not open the plastic handle actuator could be broken. Connected between the door button and the door latch assembly, this plastic part could become damaged and brittle over time, which makes breaking inevitable. If this occurs, replace the handle actuator to get your microwave fully functional again.

When using the oven tonight, i saw sparks coming from the plasic clip on the right that holds the rack up. i tried again later and still hearing crackling/sparks. is it possible to replace that...


Yes it is possible to replace the plastic clips. However thats not the problem. The problem is exposed metal under the plastic clip. Remove the clip and you will see it. You need to sand it down so that it is smooth, then use ceramic paint to cover up the exposed metal. You should check under all 4 clips to be safe. Clips are a little tricky to get out, just insert a screwdriver on either side and pry gently.

Lower door frame has broken. How do I remove remain trim


Since you gave no brand name or model I will only be able to tell you that if you don't see a couple of phillips screws, then you will have to pop the inside plastic open with a thin flat screwdriver. Start near one corner and begin prying it open, once you get it a little apart you will be able to see where the next plastic tab is to pry at.

I have a Samsung SMH9187ST microwave, it is about 2 years old. The door won't stay closed. It is worthwhile to try to fix it or should I just replace it?


If you can lift the plastic door latch catches with no resistance, it is most likely the spring/plastic connector. I removed the door by lifting up, pulling the bottom forward, and lowering. I removed the inside black plastic bevel with a jewelers flat screw driver, prying from the latch side's external edge. Once it was started, I could pull it of with a gentle lift. I took out the black plastic latch, drilled a hole near the broken piece and all was good. Samsung is not on my radar for any future purchases. This is the 3rd major purchase that barely made it past warranty or not even thru warranty.

We take turns replacing microwave ovens where I work. The latest one, a GE JES1358WL, stopped working after opening the door while running on a one-push (1 minute) start setting, and the control panel is...


Sounds like part of the peg broke off and is left inside the recepter slot area where the sensor switch is. If it is the lower door plastic hook thing (inside bottom) that broke off, it is possible to re-attatch it to the door if you save the broken piece. Drill a small hole the size of a small wire or nail you have lying around to make a splint - Cut the nail or wire to about 1/2" to use it as a hidden "bone" or skeletal support inside the broken plastic. Glue the nail half way into the broken plastic using modelers glue. Closely align the nail peg to where the plastic broke off and mark it for drilling. Drill carefully making sure you are centered so that your wire "bone" will allow proper alignment of your plastic. Insert the pinned piece into the newly drilled hole checking for alignment, if it looks close enough you can glue it in place and you should have a strong enough repair. Dangerous to use a wooden peg to fool the internal switch. As it will be running even when the door is open and you don't want to get zapped.

My turntable doesn.t work because the little plastic insert is broken.


Are you referring to the carousel ring under the glass tray? Or, are you referring to the turntable coupler in the center of the oven where the tray rests? Both these parts can usually be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and have great service. Prices vary between them, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.

You do not see the turntable shaft in the center of the oven cavity rotating, you may actually have a turntable motor that has failed. The motor is attached to the center plastic piece (called a turntable shaft or coupler) under the middle of the glass tray. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3555716-replacing_a_turntable_motor_on_a_microwa

This is a very simple repair, that usually is not expensive. The price range will be determined by the model and manufacturer. This repair can also be performed on an over the range model microwave oven WITHOUT uninstalling it.
If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER. I hope you find this information helpful.

(I also replied via e-mail)

Sorry, but the subject lines get cut off after so many characters.

Thanks for replying.

Part # DE63-00204A looks like a valid Samsung part number but it doesn't show up anywhere, so it's likely a proprietary part made only for GE and not available separately.

You can see a helpful exploded view of this model here.

Then you can go here and enter your model number and come up with the parts list. This site has much better prices than GE.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

Chances are you will end up having to but more than you want to, but not the whole door.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
