Customer Question
I have the same...

I have the same GE Monogram ZEM200SY and I need to replace the door Microwave Secondary Switch
WB24X829 - is there another way to access this switch without removing the entire outer shell???

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

ZEM200SY 001 - september 1997

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes - I am proficient in this kind of replacement, but GE does not have a service manual for this model, and any other service manual I can find for built in microwaves seem to have easy access to the control panel by 1 screw

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Nope, just this - thanks

The only way to access the door switches is to remove the outer wrapper /cabinet on the unit.

to access any component other then what is in the cooking cavity on this model the wrapper needs to be removed .

Do you find it is usually just the 1 door switch that fails, and if so what is the easiest way to test which one or do you just try each one at a time to see if that is the failed switch?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I meant to say "replace each one at a time"
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

no unusual for a door switch to fail.

and to test it that is very easy just test it for resistance with the switch plunger pushed in and at rest , one way you will have resistance the other you will not.

And out of the three door switches you will have one opposite of the other two .

Is there a special screw driver (torx) required for the outer shell - last question - thanks
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

some models do have TORX tip heads and some have a Security bit that has a tab in the center so a regular TORX tip bit will not work.
