Question about GE Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have a GE Microwave (JVM2070SH001) that had the grille break at the right screw that holds it into the frame. I ordered a GE part to replace it (WB07X10722). Since June that part has broken 3 times at the same place. This should be a simple install, but seems to be putting a lot of pressure on the plastic piece. Is there a special way to install it or some piece to provide support inside the frame I need to order?

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.

SOURCE: I can't find bolts or

HI there,

Here's HOW;

  1. Remove the face plate above the door.
  2. There were 2 bolts in which you will need a screw driver to loosen it
  3. This bolts go all the way to the back of the microwave.
  4. You still need to remove the one - three screws that's above of the cabinet. You may have to jar it loose if it still stuck.
Hope this helps.

Let me know for further instructions.

SOURCE: jvm2070sh001 microwave problems: the top grill was

The top grill problem is probably due to the grille's being broken.

There are switches associated with the grille door and if they or their actuators are damaged, it can make the grille motor want to come on (or not come on) when it should (or should not).

This exploded view diagram shows where they are.

The turning off after cooking for 2-3 seconds is a bad magnetron. See this FixYa solution even though your model number is different.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.
I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

CHANGE THE BULB


Remove the top grill assembly. It is usually held on by 2 screws going down through the cabinet top. You may need to tap the grill to the left slightly to get the tabs to release. Once the grill is off, look near the middle of the top edge of the microwave frame for 1 screw that looks like it goes through a metal lip. It will be right above the inside light bulb area. remove screw and then pull the metal tab towards you. The complete light bulb assembly will slide up and out towards you. Replace bulb and reassemble microwave.

Can a GE microwave door handle be replaced?


Is this an over-the-range microwave oven? If so, you can usually remove the door by first removing the grill vent above the door (by removing 2 or 3 screws first). With the grill vent removed, you can usually remove the door by opening it and lifting it up off its hinges. Place the door down on a blanket. Using a putty knife, you can pry out the black plastic RF shield (or door gasket). This is the most tricky part, and if you are not experienced, you may break that plastic since it is rather brittle. And if you do break it or crack it, then it must be replaced or the microwave oven will leak microwaves. But once you've got that removed, then you should be able to see and remove the screws that hold the handle to the door. After you replace the handle, it's a simple matter to push the door gasket back into place and re-install the door.

F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.
On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

It's actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.

A video is available here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you have any trouble getting the grille off once the screws are removed, slide the hood vent grille to the left about 1/4", then then pull it forward. On some models there are L-shaped clips that fit into a slot to hold bottom of the vent.

Next, disconnect the keypad strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

a96bf82a-0212-4744-bbb2-8a58209492c9.jpg

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

The part number to order is WB07X11054 and you can get it from the Pros here.

You may need to slide it to the left about 1/4" or you may need to have the door iopen when you pull the grille. It may need to be pulled up slightly.

You have to remove the door handle screw(s) and the door handle, then look for subtle clips that may be holding the outer door screen in place.

Some models have two screws holding the door handle, but some have only one. In that case, remove the screw, then you either lift or rotate the handle to free it.

Charcoal Filter Replacement


I have the same model. There are 2 sscrews that hold the grill cover on. One problem might be that your cabinet are covering those screws. They are both located about 1" back from the front edge of the door. The left side is about 3.5" from the left edge & the right side is 8.25" from the right side of the unit. My cabinets are 12" deep & I am able to access the grill cover screws with no problems.
