Its not worth it to replace the door on that microwave, total cost of the door looks like 198.00 , maybe you could call GE parts and see if they have any in stock, WB56X10758 - However I highly doubt it is worth it. You are better off going to the website www.geappliances.com and finding a similar countertop microwave and just replace it with a new one. Perhaps if you call GE parts you could haggle them down on the cost of the door, however the labor of replacing it in that microwave isn't really worth it.

SOURCE: GE Microwave JVM3660SD001 Control Panel Removal Procedure

Remove the grill, should be screws on the top of the unit. There should be one screw behind the grill at the top of the control panel. Remove it and pop the control panel up to remove it. Make sure the mw is unplugged first. Then you can remove the board.

SOURCE: Need to replace GE Spacemaker XL1400 door

On most microwavre ovens all you have to do is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door comes right off the hinge pins. In some cases you may have to remove the top louver panel (right above the door). You should NOT have to unmount the oven to complete this. In fact...I would not recommend it.

Is this a simple matter of replacing a door handle? If you need to only replace the door handle, you just lift slightly on the INNER door plastic around the glass and you will be able to access the door handle screws. There are a series of small grooves in the panel that you can use a small screwdriver to gently pry. You should not have to remove the entire panel. Just open it enough directly behind the door handle. Be careful when prying on the plastic. It can break if you're not careful. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Burnt bulb in GE JE1590sc001 convection microwave

You can locate it by looking inside the cavity for an area that is perforated.
If this area is not a panel that can be removed, replacing it may (often) require removing a few sheet metal screws along the rear edge of the unit; rarely is the housing held on with more than that.
With the screws removed, lift up on the rear edge and pull toward the back.

DO NOT LEAVE IT PLUGGED IN!

Also, because there are components that may keep a charge (capacitors) for hours, I would recommend letting it sit unplugged overnight before removing the housing.

The bulb may be either a cylindrical type such as many sewing machines use or a smaller version of a standard bulb.
Neither of which anyone ever has at home, of course.

Any of the large 'home improvement' stores should have these 'made in China' bulbs at an inflated price.

SOURCE: Condensation marks on microwave door

For most microwaves the process is pretty straightforward. You can open the door and you will see the screws that hold the outerinside panel on to the glass. After you remove those screws you will see the screws that hold the ouside cover to the door in place. Once you get that far you will see what is holding the glass in place. Keep in mind to replace the gaskets around the glass right and anything you take off to get to the glass itself. If you are getting condensation from range top cooking then the seal around the glass may need to be replaced. You really cannot hurt anything by taking it apart, but it needs to be put back together exactly the way you take it apart. Good luck and hope this helped.

How do i replace the inside light in the microwave?


If you see no panel on the inside of the unit, you will have to remove the housing.
If it isn't high-mounted, this isn't difficult; there are 3-5 screws around the edge of the back panel that keep the metallic housing in place. Once these are removed, lift the rear flange of the housing and tilt it forward, then pull it back toward you to release the front lip.
As a precaution; unplug the oven overnight since there are components that can keep a nasty electrical charge for hours, maybe not life-threatening but highly unpleasant.

The problem that you are having is that the magnetron inside the microwave is shorting out to ground and it will find the shortest path to reach whatever has metal in it. Replacing the magnetron will solve your problem altogether and you need not do anything else different and continue using your metal racks.

Door hard to open on GE Advantium


That's odd.

I think you're just going to have to examine it while opening and closing the door.

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

That can help. Good luck.

Check out this door frame diagram, specifically number 1805. It clips on to the door frame. Remove it using a dull table knife or something similar (be careful not to scratch or break anything). You will then have access to the bottom screw.

I would suspect a couple of wires are crossed.

GE puts mini-manuals in their units, which have wiring diagrams, schematics, etc. Very handy.

It will be folded up in a small envelope, usually behind the control panel or hidden elsewhere. That should help you.
