Question about GE JE1590 Convection / Microwave Oven
These are the OEM switches in that model: SWITCH-SECONDARY part # WB24X0829 reference # 1446 (it needs 2) SWITCH-MONITOR part # WB24X0830 reference # 1447 But... You can use a generic 15A three-terminal switch in each spot as long as the proper wire is attached to each of the the "C" (common), "NO" (normally open) and "NC" (normally closed) terminals. These replacements are available from a local appliance parts store, home improvement center, or Wal-Mart, etc. As far as the door latch is concerned, reference 1205 is listed as the "body latch". I usually call it the door switch mount. The tabs on the door switch mount sometimes break. If it is removed, the door has to be realigned and a leakage test must be done. But often one can fix it with epoxy, etc. without removing it. You need to also check to be sure the hooklike devices sticking out of the door are not broken off and that they have spring tension which pulls them back down after you push up on them. Sometiems the inner door screen has a little loop to which the spring mounts, and that loop breaks off inside. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk Also, there should be a mini-manual / tech sheet folded up inside the oven. It's very helpful. Another good source of parts lists and exploded views diagrams is http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct). Your model is there.
