Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
If you are referring to the disassembly and replacement of the door, just follow these steps:
1. On MOST microwave ovens, all you have to do is remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The panel is pressed in place and can be removed by using a small screwdriver or putty knife and carefully insert along the seam of the inner panel to release the clips that hold it in place so you can pry the plastic up. Work your way slowly around the perimeter of the glass to pop the panel loose. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that shields you from harmful RF radiation.
2. With the inner panel removed, locate the door handle screws and remove with a screwdriver.
3. The panel glass should be "sandwiched" in place (double layer on most ovens) and should either lift out, or have retaining clips holding in place. Remove and set aside.
4. The remaining piece(s) comprise the door frame. Replace as necessary.
REASSEMBLY: Re-insert the panel glass, followed by the inner door panel, gradually working your way around the perimeter of the door glass to ensure it snaps back into place and seats properly.
NOTE: This repair should be done with the door REMOVED from the oven for easier access. To remove the door, open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. On some microwaves, you may have to remove the upper grill cover over the door (if equipped) to accommodate door removal. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.
NOTE: Some doors have a hinge pin that needs to be removed, or screws holding the door in place at the hinge.
There are several parts sources available that you can use to purchase replacement parts:
The first three sites on the list also offer helpful exploded view parts listings to aid in parts identification and location. Just type in your model number and locate the parts listing for the door. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this advice is helpful
