How to remove the outter door frame on the GE Microwave

Hi, I have an over the range GE microwave (model #JVM1650S004)...the black plastic outter door frame has cracked and broken off. Can anyone please talk me through taking the door off so that I can replace the outer door frame. I've found the frame from several parts places for about $50, and it seems pretty straight forward..but I can't figure out how to get the door off of the microwave. Thanks, Tom

You need to use the entire correct model number at their site, but you can find a helpful exploded view PDF diagram by searching for "Repair Part" at the GE parts site: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ Normally you can separate the door panels without removing the door. I've included a diagram from a Sharp model that might help. If you do have to remove the door, you have to be sure you reinstall it exactly where and how it was, or you may get microwave leakage. You should definititely mark the locations of all the hardware before disassembly.

I think some of my cleaning solution seeped down in the front door of my microwave and now it has this oranged burned spot in places. It looks like the door is dirty but the residue is actually in between the glass of the door. Any suggestions for what to do? Should I try to take off the door and clean it or buy another door for it?
Thanks! Amanda in Alabama

I have a new panasonic with a stainless door and the door got scratched and had to be replaced. I oderered a new door but recieved a new door skin of stainless and a plastic surround with a mirror backing.
In order to replace I had to first remove from the inside of the door the plastic sub-frame (choke cover) than using a putty knife and flat blade screwdriver pry the outer cover off at the catch points.
No screws just plastic clips that are very fragile.
I felt like it was going to brake but it did come off.
then the door catch spring and catch as well.
reverse the procedure to finish.
All is well and I am out of the doghouse for scratching our new microwave door.

The truth is there is no solution. GE now makes it's products in China, so they are junk, China uses inferior plastics, because everything is recycles. This is why the microwave doors cracked. GE will not address it and will not stand behind their product. I had to order a new door to replace the one cracked, and it's been 5 years, I have yet to find any instructions or get any help on trying to figure out how to replace that microwave door frame. My solution, purchase anything NOT made in China by anyone other than GE. GE has forever lost me as a customer!!!!

Can I replace the door locking mechanism on a GE JVM1650 microwave oven?


If you are talking about the 2 hooks that stick out of the door, in most cases yes they are replaceable. also the switches behind the holes the hooks go into are also replaceable. Door hooks can be accessed by carefully prying off the plastic inner door frame around the hooks. You have to be gentle or the frame will crack. Take your time and go slowly all the way around the door.

Can a GE microwave door handle be replaced?


Is this an over-the-range microwave oven? If so, you can usually remove the door by first removing the grill vent above the door (by removing 2 or 3 screws first). With the grill vent removed, you can usually remove the door by opening it and lifting it up off its hinges. Place the door down on a blanket. Using a putty knife, you can pry out the black plastic RF shield (or door gasket). This is the most tricky part, and if you are not experienced, you may break that plastic since it is rather brittle. And if you do break it or crack it, then it must be replaced or the microwave oven will leak microwaves. But once you've got that removed, then you should be able to see and remove the screws that hold the handle to the door. After you replace the handle, it's a simple matter to push the door gasket back into place and re-install the door.

Why does ge microwave blows fuse when door is opened?


Inspect the door switches and the wiring in the light bulb circuit. If the problem is a door switch, it will probably be visibly broken, or there will be burn marks on it. It's also possible that the door switch bracket is bent or broken and allows the terminals to short to the oven frame. Check the lamp socket - if it is cracked or burned, it should be replaced.

Also look for signs of arcing or burn marks on the controller board, especially near the relays (usually black plastic boxes about 1" x 1' x 3/4' mounted near the wire terminals or wire harness connector).

As a general note, it is rare for a fuse to fail by itself. If you find a blown fuse, look for a cause before replacing it. This may prevent wasting another fuse.

How to change the handle


To access the door handle mounting screws, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to simply pry the plastic up and work your way gradually around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Sear's microwave falling apart


If this is and Over the Range micro, the exhaust fan needs to run ANYTIME the cooktop is on. They make things for quantity and not quality, so the plastic has little tolerance for heat. Running the fan, diminishes heat off the front of the unit. Also, the micro MUST be at leat 24" off the cooktop.

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.

Repalce Door handle on GE Profile model number SCA1000DBB03


There're some half a dozen or so small screws securing that frame to the door face. These screws must be removed. Then, the frame can be pried out by releasing the plastic snappers (with a flat screwdriver) while in the same time gently helping the frame to detach from these snappers' hold and the door face. It's a tidious, somewhat annoying task. The snappers may and will even likely break in the process, but aren't needed for the frame to be resecured to the door face after the handle is replaced. Note that the broken ends of the handle must be held with a pair of pliers or a flat screwdriver needs to be inserted bewteen each of them and the hole, or the ends will turn with the screws. This is because the metal screws' grip of the plastic handle broken ends is very strong and will otherwise won't get separated.Once the above is accomplished, reassembling the door is a brease.

P.S.: The dual end latch may interfere somewhat with the job and can be removed for the prtocess to be undertaken without it disturbing. It's easy to remove and replace that latch, including its spring.

The plastic frame around the door has broken, how do I remove the door so I can super glue the crack? It is a GE JVM1631Wjo1 spacemaker


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: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

Broken Handle


On almost any microwave oven door if you open the door,on the inside part of the door,theres a square plate thats plastic that is a one piece unit that goes all the way around the edge of the door . That held on by little plastic clips that are molded right on the suround and easy to break, so take a small screw driver(of course the ovens unplugged by now) and start at one end and start prying it out inch by inch. Being care full not to crack it. If yop do crack it, you must replace it, but its not that expensive. Once you have off the cover surround, you will see the screws that hold on the handle. If you need help getting the part go to http://www.repairclinic.com as even if its not listed get the phone # and call them and they will assist you. Good Luck
