Question about Amana Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I pulled the front panel off my Amana Radarange and accidentally pulled the primary switch (bottom switch) out of its housing; can't figure out how to get it back in place. (The switch still works.) It's a little black plastic piece about 1/2" by 1", with a small red switch protruding. Nothing is actually broken.

SOURCE: Door latches to microwave broken

I assume you're talking about the spring that keeps tension on the door hooks (latch heads, as they're called by Sharp). When you shut the door, the "hooks" are held down by this spring to actuate the door switches. To fix this, you'll have to separate the door panels. You can download the service manual from my Web site. There's a loop built into the latch head assembly and sometimes the loop breaks. If so, you can drill a tiny hold in it and reattach the spring there. There may also be a loop on the innner door panel to hold the spring. That one can break, too. If it's broken, you'll have to find a way to secure the spring to the panel. If the panel material is thick enough, a tiny screw eye could be inserted, then epoxied overnight to secure it. I've attached a diagram to this message that should help you. If that doesn't help you, I have the service manual for the R1600-series microwaves on my Web site at: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1610.pdf Repost if you need more help.

I think it will use a standard generic probe for the Accu-Temp. Sorry I couldn't help. Take care.

Is that model number RR-9?

You can find and order that part (# AP118264) here.

I just hope your magnetron is not blown, too. (Does it still heat?)

You can use a microwave-safe plate in the meantime.

(I also replied via e-mail)

Sorry, but the subject lines get cut off after so many characters.

Thanks for replying.

Part # DE63-00204A looks like a valid Samsung part number but it doesn't show up anywhere, so it's likely a proprietary part made only for GE and not available separately.

You can see a helpful exploded view of this model here.

Then you can go here and enter your model number and come up with the parts list. This site has much better prices than GE.

Normally 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.

Chances are you will end up having to but more than you want to, but not the whole door.

Need to change bulb inside Amana radarange RR1220


There is an access / cover panel on the back of the oven.

It's shown in the exploded view here.

Please unplug the oven from the wall first.

Then use a 1/4" nut driver or socket to remove the screw in the end of the lamp cover.

The bulb is behind the cover, and should be readily available at grocery stores, home improvement centers, hardware stores and big box stores like Wal-Mart.

Amana radarange microwave oven 1000 watts not heating.


The two possible causes are a faulty door switch and a bad magnatron. You can pull the top cover off of the unit and check all of the door switches (there are 2-6 of them all on a common rail, me normally closed)). If the door switches all check out, replace the magnatron, diodes, and capacitor.
