Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the manual) 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.
The best place to order GE parts is Tritronics.
