Question about GE JVM1653 Microwave Oven

GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM 1320

Problem: Handle came off in my hand. The screw is still attached to the threading part of the handle which is hard to get to as it broke off at the door level meaning there is nothing to grab onto. I've tried everthing I can think of to grab it with so I can stop it from spinning as I loosen the screw from the back. Any suggestions would be helpful.

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) here that demonstrates how it's done.

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

How do you replace a GE Spacemaker Oven Profile JVM1490WD003 handle ?


usually you need to demount the front panel
then remove its face unit as it will have a back guard unit
so they split apart with screws usually counter sunk machine screws
then the front unit section will have the handle attached
de mount it and replace and back step
i find if i place all the screws like a map of where they came from
then when placing a screw in metal or plastic
turn the screw anti clockwise {to the left}
till it clicks down and drops a bit
you get a feel for it so practice

once you do this you can almost guarantee your on the correct threads when you wind it clockwise {to t he right} to secure

esp important with plastic
if you drop in the wrong thread you end up with a unit thats plastics holes
no longer hold the screws turn turn isnt good
when you can use this trick

Need to dissemble microwave oven door GE model JVM 1631 BB 002 to remove spider.


Remove the inner strip around the door called the choke. If there are no screws visable it just snaps in place and does break if you are not very careful. This will give you access to the screws holding the outer frame piece and handle on. keep in mind, any repairs done to the door will necessitate a RFe leakage inspection. Boil some water on the front burners and cook the little guy and leave the door alone.

I would like to replace the microwave oven handle.


The inside of the door has a Black Plastic frame about 1 inch wide. This frame can be removed by placing a thin screwdriver between it and the outer door frame and gently (very gently) prying it away from the door. It takes a little wiggling of the frame but it will unlock. On each end of the handle is a philips head screw that holds the handle to the door.
