Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have a 12 year old Siemens built in fridge (model No KU15R03) and cant figure out how to fit a new door seal. The seal is not magnetic or self adhesive. The existing seal is held in place by the door inner panel. Assistance appreciated please.

SOURCE: Microwave Oven replacing plastic film on inside of door

FSP stands for "Factory Service Parts" which I believe was originally terminology from Amana, which now (along with several other brands such as Electrolux, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchen Aid, Litton, Roper, and Whirlpool) is now under the Maytag umbrella.

Confusing, eh??

Hopefully the new one will have adhesive included. If not, then you'll have two sheets to use to get it right.

In that case, I'd probably recommend the spray-on type adhesive you can find at hardware stores or big box stores such as Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowe's etc. It will probably be made by 3M.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

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.

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

I think that you can get the plastic wet, ie sponge, or lick.

SOURCE: Have a 12 year old kitchenaid Superba stainless

Hi - it is 12 yrs old so parts may not be available for it.

If its a door problem, then its really a door latch switch or switches that has failed. Time involved in removing case, then switches then checking them all then finding replacements at ?? cost is uneconomic.
Please consider getting a new machine - probably use less power, have more features and work a darn sight better than this old one.

Ice has built up behind the wall of the fridge. I can see ice in the little holes on the back wall. I also have water accumulating under the crispers in the fridge. I called samsung they have no clue...


turn it of and under your fridge or on the inside water is ment to full into the tray either the tray is full or your temp control is buggered. try tilting your fridge back about so it leans back and see if that helps but a new seal is about $20 and all you do is pul the old one off and pop the new one in place

Fridge door does not stay closed


"fridge door does not stay closed" (sic) This can happen if the door magnet has lost it's grip, this can be easily replaced, either DIY, or there are many firms that offer this service. Or the latch mechanism isn't working as it should.
if you wish to DIY then first obtain a service manual, for your exact make and model. This shows you what to do & how to do it, also more importantly it has parts numbers too.

I need to replace the door on the microwave. I have a new GE Spacemaker Excel Microwave with a broken handle and door. I want to put my "old" microwave door on it.


Hi First I do not recommend replacing the new door unless you know it fits exactly like the old one and the wattage rating is the same and the seals and door locks are the same. However are you just wanting to change the face plate so it will match your kitchen then that may be do able. To find out you need to look at the wattage output of both units to see if they are rated the same, however you can go to this web site. Type in both model numbers and look at the two different doors if they have the same parts number you can change it, best bet is to call them and ask if they are interchangeable. If you then decide to tackle the repair get back to us so we can tell you what to do and not to do in order to replace it. Hope this helps. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=JVM1640SJ

Need replacement microwave to fit existing trim kit


Finally built up the courage to call GE Appliance number and weave my way through the phone menu system. Pressed the right menu option (sales) to speak to someone about trim kits. Found out that the trim kit model number is JX1527MWW. Then called back to select a different menu option (other) and learned from someone else that since the trim kit model is more than 1-2 years old, there's a slim-to-none chance any new microwave models will work with it, and even if there was they couldn't easily cross-reference against a model that old to tell me which one (or something to that effect). So I hit a dead end. Only option for me at this point is to buy a new microwave with new trim kit.

(Personal note: I think the trim kit business is a racket, in bed with the microwave manufacturers. Why else would there be no standard dimensions for microwaves by now--like refrigerators have--and why is it a few pieces of sheet metal cost over $150? Pretty convenient that every microwave model needs its own trim kit model!)
