Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

GE Profile Spectra XL44

This oven came with the house and we love it as well as the cook top and attached microwave above the unit. The problem is that one day the door cover just fell off onto the carpeted floor. It looks like it nestles on the top end and is held on by only three sticky pads on the bottom. How do I reattach this door? Are there special sticky pads I should use or some kind of special heat resistant glue? Are the sticky pads from the factory or are they a previous fix job. This oven came with the house we bought about 20 months ago so not sure how old but probably not over 3 years.

    True, what glue to use is one question. The other is can I use magnets for this solution?

    I have not taken a photo yet, sorry. But I figure you experts can look up a picture of the oven and imagin that the silver metal frame part of the door which holds the glass is not there anymore.

    I have the same problem with my electric stainless model Good old American don't know how! Sticky pads to hold on a 12 pound door with a window in it, HOW STUPID. I will drill four holes in the sides and sink stainless flat head self tapping screws into the frame like they should have. I am sure glad I am driving three Toyotas and I don't feel guilty at all. BUY AMERICAN and keep coming back every 4 years NO thank you. I also had to fix a loose arcing wire behind the burner knob that was left loose. Good quality control - NOT. Leaving the four screws off of the door didn't save them a customer in the future. The sticky tape is probably more money. Maybe they couldn't drill through the stainless door?



    GOOD LUCK,

Exterior of oven , top and both sides gets very hot to touch, when cooking +- 10 minutes or more the last couple of days; no Error ( E41/42/45 or 47 are being displayed. Fan is normal, functions: OK


There could be food or oil buildup around the door frame which will absorb some of the radiant and microwave energy whilst cooking. Give it all a good clean and see if that helps. If everything else is working properly, it may be a problem with the cooling fan. Microwave ovens have a "stirrer fan" inside the roof or rear of the cooking area to disperse the microwaves and some convection / microwave ovens also have a cooling fan which assists in dissipating heat within the cabinet.

Installing a microwave / convection oven above a stovetop


Needs to be properly vented to outside the house. Only install a microwave that's designed for over-stove use in this space.

I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

Emerson Microwave MW8115SS --


I would suggest you check the door switches inside the microwave oven just below the keypad, rectangular in shape. The switches are normally open or closed, set meter to ohms, unhook lead from one side and test with door open and closed. If readings are the same both ways the switch is defective. "check all switches"

Venting of microwave - house stinks of bacon


Interesting post, because I have the same problem! I have spent the better part of today researching and taking our microwave apart (partially) to inspect the top portion re: outside vent. Everytime the microwave is on, the "active vent door" (manufacturer's term, not mine!) opens. Apparently this is normal. But it also opens when you turn on the vent fan, when cooking on the stovetop. I don't like this feature, because I think it 'overrides' the outside venting system. I double checked our outside vent to ensure that when this oven was installed, the person did in fact allow the flap to be open when the fan is on (he did). So I think what 'our' problem is, is that the microwave active vent sort of interferes with the outside vent, thus more of the cooking smell being blown into the house instead of the outdoors. I was thinking of simply disconnecting the gizmo that make the active vent door open each time you use the oven and/or vent fan option however I don't think that's a good idea as apparently the main purpose of the active vent door is to keep the electronics of the microwave oven from overheating. The more I read about this version of microwave, the less impressed I am with it. Lots of electronic issues with it. I am not fussy either with having the microwave over the cooktop. Sorry I don't have a solution for your problem but I do feel your pain!!!

Acceptable distance from cook top surface to microwave?


Sorry but your subject line got cut off. I'll assume you're talking about the distance from the cooktop to the top of the microwave (bottom of the cabinet to which it's mounted).

Here's how the installation instructions spec it:
  • "Make sure the bottom edge of the cabinet that will be above the microwave oven is at least 66" from the floor and 30" from the cooking surface."
So it's measured from the cooktop to the top of the microwave, not the bottom edge.

And I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

You can also download your owner's manual form the link I posted above.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Does stove-top need downdraft if microwave has oven-hood combo?


We have a stove with no downdraft, and a microwave with a hood above it. It works just fine. I expect you could keep your downdraft and put a microwave without a hood above it, and that would also work. I don't think, however, you can buy an above the range mocrowave oven, that slides in on brackets, which will not have a hood.
