There seems to be a "critter" stuck under the clear, plastic time display portion on the front of the microwave. How do I access it to remove this nasty bugger?

I have a Kenmore microwave, model 721.62649200. The Handle to the door just broke off. I can find places online to buy a new handle, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to take the door...


I have a similar unit and I removed the outside of the door by loosening two flat head screws on the narrow where the handle is located. There are several screws yet holding the outside plastic housing too. Once these are removed the plastic door will come off. Then the handle will be accessible.
The same issue started with my oven too and I replaced the original handle with larger screws and using a high quality plastic glue.
This held for a while. The plastic door cover seemed to have changed dimensions during its life and warped. I ordered a new door and it lasted a short while. I then asked for a new door under warranty.
Bottom line they wouldn't sent a new cover but they returned my money. Apparently the doors all had crappy plastic issues. Currently we are using the microwave with out the door front. It still works like new after 10 years though.

How do I get the cover off my Samsung over the stove microwave? Do I have to take it off the brackets?


It likely depends on the model. To access the circuit board behind the numeric display, do the following. On the SMH9187ST model (and probalby most models that have the numeric display to the right of the door), you remove the top vent guard that runs across the top front of the microwave. There are 2 screws holding it in. Open the door and then slide the panel 1/2" one direction then it will lift off. Remove the center and right screws on the bottom of the cabinet, directly under the door. Remove the single screw at the top of the numeric display and the display and circuit board will lift free of the cabinet. The connecting wires can each be removed as there is only place they will each attach to when it's time to reconnect. Some are color-coded, others have unique connectors.

Samsung microwaves seem to have a high occurrence of the SE error code. This happens when the edge connector on the ribbon cable gets oxidized from steam that enters the cabinet through the seam at the numeric display and the cabinet itself. You can often remove and clean the edge connector with alcohol and buy some time but it will happen again. Replacing the circuit board is the next step after the cleanings stop working. Places like partsimple.com stock both the display and the board.

I have a spacespaver JVM230BL01. It suddenly just quit, like a fuse blew. does anyone know where the fuse is located.......I don't have the manual.


First of all, UNPLUG. And turn off the breaker. And make sure it's still unplugged when you get back. I
Most over the counter MW ovens provide access to the fuse(s) through the top grill. Depending on your model, you may have to do any number of the following: find and remove any screws on the top of the unit just behind the grill (screwed into the metal cabinet/shell/case), unhook any springs that may be holding the grill in place (some GE models), and finally unscrew any screws that directly secure the grill to the rest of the oven.
Next, remove the grill. This is usually achieved by either unsnapping the PLASTIC clips (do not force anything. plastic breaks), sliding the grill to the right of the left (the most recent GE I worked on slid to the left), or unhooking any metal pivots. Just look before you leap, it's pretty easy to see most of what secures these guys without breaking anything.
With the grill off, you will see at the top of the touchpad, display, control assembly a single screw. Unscrew this. The whole panel should be easy to remove by lifting up on it. Some go to the left or right, but most go straight up. Again, be careful of the wiring, and you don't want to yank it with much force because you could obliterate the wiring this way. Just a gentle tap on the bottom will do if it seems stuck.
Let the control panel hang down gently (2 hooks on the bottom should support the panel from the bottom) and you will see, somewhere, either 1 or 2 bus-type fuses. These will be either 15 or 20 amp fuses, and most of the time they're white with silver caps on either end.
If you don't have an ohmmeter or multimeter or dont know how to use the one you have, just replace both fuses with fuses of the correct amperage. If you go over, you can really destroy your microwave for good (control board frying = expensive) and if you go under, you'll blow them over and over again.
Stay clear of the capacitor if it shares this compartment (2-4" silver canister secured with a metal clip, 3 or 4 wires coming out of one end) because that can kill you.
Put it all back together and test with a coffee mug full of cool water for 2-3 min. It should be super hot.
If you continue to blow fuses, you need an appliance technician or, more likely, a new microwave. It's usually not cost-effective to have a microwave serviced unless it's under warranty or is worth spending $100-$350 on.

Our oven door has become dirty from juices spilled and has got in bewtween the glass on the door. Can this be taken apart and cleaned out????


Depending on the make and model of microwave it should be cleanable.
If you have countersunk screws along the outer of the door edge, unscrew the screws and then the plastic from should pry off allowing access to clean the inside portion or let you remove even more screws allowing access to the inside.
Some have a plastic bead on the inside of the door that covers up the screws. That is held on by long plastic clips, covering the screws that hold the front on.
Hope that helps.

I have accidentally locked my microwave oven (profile performance convection oven). I was cleaning the front. Can you tell me what to do?


Got you covered. Here you go:

A small "L" will appear in the corner of the display as a reminder that the control panel is locked. If anyone tries to use the microwave, the display will show "LOCK".
2. On some models, press and hold the 5 and 7 pads simultaneously for 3 seconds.
To unlock the control: Repeat the procedure which was used to lock the control. (Press and hold the CLEAR/OFF pad for about 3 seconds or hold the 5 and 7 pad simultaneously for 3 seconds.)

How to change the handle


To access the door handle mounting screws, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to simply pry the plastic up and work your way gradually around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Display not workign


Sadly, the display tube is not available separately, so the only way to fix this is to replace the board, at a whopping $181.48!

One trick that helps is to remove the control panel assembly, take the circuit board out of the frame and very carefully wipe the front of the glass and the rear surface of the control panel frame's display window.

Use a soft cloth with alcohol-based (non-ammonia) window cleaner.

That will brighten it up quite a bit.

At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Be sure to unplug the oven before you do any disassembly.

Replace Blub GE Microwave oven Model 1540


On my Spacemaker, access for bulb replacement is on the top of the chassis, which is under the top/side cover. From a diagram I looked at, it appears that yours is similar. If so, you have to:

1. UNPLUG the microwave and then remove the three retaining screws that you'll find on shelf or cabinet above the microwave. Get help; the front of the microwave will be heavy when the screws come loose from the top.

2. Rotate the front of the microwave down a little and lift the rear up about a half-inch. At this point, it is free from the rear mounting plate. Set the microwave on a suitable work surface.

3. Remove the top/side cover piece. To do this, remove all the small screws on the top, the back, and the bottom edges on each side. Then slide cover back about an inch and lift it off.

4. In the middle section of the top of the chassis, you'll then see a cover above the location of the bulb. Lift it up to get access to the bulb.

It's a lame design for an over-the-range unit, but that's the way it is.

Here's a link to a diagram of what it looks like after you get the cover off: http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=jvm1640sj&searchTerm=img_00115013i05&RefineSearch=0&imgMfg=GE
