Open Question

Whirlpool gt4175sps the door glass [actually seems to be a plastic product] is dirty & can't be properly cleaned between the glass & mesh. I read your two suggestions. I still can't quite figure out how to remove the door. Is the mesh necessary? Can it be removed? thank you.

SOURCE: Clean between mesh and glass on microwave door

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.

SOURCE: How do I clean the inside glass on the door - GE Profile JVM1870

I have a GE Spacemaker over the stove microware. I found that after my wife did her sscrub job to remove grease from the outside glass and the wire mesh, the wire mesh apparently trapped some water inside or under the mesh - it looked white & cloudy. I used the hair dryer and after a 10 minute of blowing on higfh heat, the condensation dissappeared.

Whirlpool gold GT4175SPS-2 inside door paint is flaking and revealing metal. Is it safe to use?


Hi,

Scratches, flaking and bare spots are fairly common, but should be addressed as soon as they arise so the corrosion will not spread and arcing does not occur.

Unplug the power cord first.

Take some mild sanding cloth or scotchbright and clean the bare and rusted areas in the microwave. Use appliance touch up paint to re-coat the surface. You can find the touch up at most anywhere that sells appliances, it comes in a plastic bottle similar in appearance to fingernail polish, yes it does have a brush inside.

Let it dry per the instructions on the bottle or 24 hours if not specified.

Whirlpool gold microwave gt4175sps - problem: will


Hi,

It sounds like there may be a diode or relay on the control that has failed. This could cause both symptoms you are explaining here. In either case the control board/keymembrane would need replaced. The cost of these would be about $173.00 for parts. Unfortunatly this repair would most likely cost more than the value of the product. Sorry for the bad news.

Cannot clean the inside door between glass and mesh - any ideas?


Unfortunately it is not possible to do this without dismantling the door. The mesh is very important for containing microwave energy in the oven cavity. If the door is dismanteled it is important not to damage the mesh and to have the oven tested for possible leakage after it has been re assembled.

How do I clean the inside glass on the door - GE Profile JVM1870


I have a Kenmore with similar issues.
Model 665.61639100
Anyway, good luck with this. Hope someone has an answer for you (and me).
Mine has a open slot on the top front of the door. Kinda like a double plate window execpt for the opening in front. Why is this there? I don't know. Weird design. But it leaves for the possibilty of liquid to splash in there leaving it hard to clean (like impossible).

I'm thinking I have to completely remove and disect the door.

I have a Whirlpool Microwave that runs when I open the door Model# GT4175SP. Any ideas?


Remove the case and confirm that the door latch switch is mechanically intact. Next, disconnect the switch and test it with an ohm meter to see that it is actually working. It should show a short (0.0 ohms) when the door is closed and no reading when the door is open. Those readings could be reversed but there should be two distinctly different readings when testing the switch. If you don't see any differnce between readings when the door is open or closed then replace the switch. This should solve your problem.

Inner 'glass' of door


The inner glass can and should be replaced. It protects the metal mesh screen from getting dirty, which can cause it to be damaged and allow microwave leakage.

Microwave door has burn spots on the glass of the door...


The brown spots are usually grease / smoke deposits. Usually there are indeed two sheets of glass in the door. If the grease is not arcing or smoking, and the metal screen / mesh (that blocks microwave leakage) is not damaged, then it's likely better left alone. It might be useful to boil a few cups of water with a little vinegar inside the microwave to help dissolve the deposits. In case you want to take it apart, I have attached a photo from a similar model that illustrates disassembly of the door. It is not necessary or advisable to remove the door or hinges when disassembling the door.
