    Do you have a diagram you can send me?

    I have been able to access the holes for the screws to hold handle in place. Next problem...The bottom screw is missing. No screw in my area and 2 weeks to order. Do you have the dimensions of the bottom screw? Can I just buy a similar screw at ACE or Home Depot that will fit without causing any problems?

Use 2 putty knives to remove the inner plastic frame or seal. There are 2 screws that are accessible and can be removed easily. Remove the glass front panel to get to the remaining two screws. To remove this you'll need to unscrew 6 small Phillip's screws. Now dislodge the clips to remove the top and bottom. Now you can access the remaining 2 screws, replace the handle and assemble in reverse order.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

    GE usually hides the parts info and wiring diagram in a envelope inside the cabinet on the left hand side alone with instructions on how to replace the door...

How do you remove and then replace the handle on microwave model JVM1339BW002

Open the door and you'll see a plastic frame that goes around the inside of the door. That has to be removed VERY carefully by prying it out.It breaks very easily. I use a putty knife. When thats off you will see two screws that hold the handle in place.

I need to replace a broken handle on a spacemaker xl 1800 I have the handle, just don't know how to take the door apart to fix. Is there a website with directions for dummies :) Thanks

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.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

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

Broken door handle

The in side door panel ( at total pain) must come off

If the damage to the bottom is not too bad.
On mine I took the cover for the handle loose from the bottom ( it pops off, but be careful).
and put screws at the bottom

Microwave Door Switch Problem?

That model number has too many digits after the JVM. Could it be JVM1339BW02 or JVM1339BW002?

If one is bad, it's probably the bottom switch, whose wiring goes back to the power relay, thermostat, or fuse, depending on eact model.

The switch with thin wires going to a ltitle connector on the board is the door sense switch. That's not likely your culprit.

I usually recommend you replace them all while you're at it.

It sounds like it may actually be a loose or misaligned door or door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here:

GE models have a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. Handy in troubleshooting.
