Vent cover does not close


I had the same problem. It was the plastic that holds the folding vent cover, it cracked. I didn't do anything about it and just let it go. Mistake. Last night it broke off completely, on both sides! So now I am looking at a much bigger project to try to glue/build the darn thing. I suggest you get up there with a flash light when it is open and see if there is any sign of the plastic cracking. If so, take out the two screws on the top and that will let you pull your vent cover off completley and you might be able to glue the plastic and reenforce any weak areas. I have found many posts about this problem on line and sounds like GE charges about $400 to fit it (more than a new one!) Good luck!

Fan and light buttons pushed in, how do i install new buttons.


I just fixed mine. Same problem.

  1. remove the top vent (like replacing filter) w/ 2 or 3 screws on the top of the unit
  2. Remove the one screw on the top of the clock/control unit.
  3. Remove the clock/control panel by sliding up then out
  4. See circuit board at the bottom for the 3 switches. Hopefully it just popped out of place.
  5. pop it back into place and re-assemble
  6. if it's broken, you'll have to find the replacement part here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/
  7. If the actual buttons (black plastic) are broken, you have to replace the whole plastic housing for the electronics. Probably a big project and/or you'd replace the whole bit for hundreds of dollars, but even still, it's a pop-out, pop-in.
Good luck,

How to replace the door?


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

If the door won't lift off when you open it all the way, then you'll have to pull the oven from the wall to take off the cover and get to the hinges.

Kitchenaid / Whirlpool customer installation manuals and owner's manuals can be downloaded here

Hopefully you can do it without having to actually remove the hinges, since that would require adjustments and leakage tests.

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

NEED TO REPLACE THE WHITE PLASTIC CATCH ON NEXT TO THE CONTROL PANEL AS IT SNAPPED OFF AS MY SON SLAMMED THE DOOR


By the nature of the oven main face plate and the locking latch being attached to the safety system the replacement cost is usually higher than a replacement microwave oven.

In your case replacing the microwave with another one is more sensible. Your oven is an obscure model as it is, I'd suggest a sharp brand.

Front vent fell off


This should be a very easy fix. I assume you are talking about the plastic vent grill on the top of the oven above the door. There should only be a couple of screws holding it in from the top. The grill then should tilt out from the top first then from the bottom to remove. Since you said that it had fallen off, it sounds like the tabs where the screw holes are have broken off. This is a common problem. You can buy the part by ordering from the manufacturer, or from most repair websites. All you need is the model number from the microwave. Good luck.
