Question about GE Microwave Ovens
I've got the bottom part of the panel loose, but not the top. It appears that there is one more screw at the rear of the top center part of the panel, but no way to access it. There are lots of DIY videos online, but I can't find one for this particular model. I think I need to replace a door switch, since the fan and turntable turn on when the door is opened.

This image might help. If not it looks like you have to disassemble the door until you get to the very outer frame, as that is where the handle screws are

1. Unplug the microwave
or turn off its breaker.
2. Open the door, then detach the control panel as shown in the video at http://www.microwavedisplay.com and swing it down, but without disconnecting the wires.
If you have any trouble getting the grille off once the screws are removed, slide the hood vent grille to the left about 1/4", then then pull it forward.
On some models there are L-shaped clips that fit into a slot to hold bottom of the vent.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You are correct. It has to come out. You should be able to use a knife or equivalent to pop off the inner panel to the microwave. It should just pop out and then you will be able to get the other screws.
