Customer Question

The door on the GE Profile Microwave PEB 2060 SM1SS that we purchased 6 yr ago is becoming increasing difficult to open. It often does not unlatch properly when one pushed the OPEN button. Is there a quick fix?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: 2060 SM1SS is the model number and it was manufactured in Dec., 2009
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Depends on what you think is wrong with it and how difficult it is to fix.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: That should do it. Just that the door seems to be "catching" on something and it becoming more and more difficult to open. Other than this, we have been very happy with the unit.

There is not a quick fix for that you will need an interior latch piece that gets worn out. Typically you need to remove the outer shroud on the unit and replace part #2006 at this link


All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.
