Default Ge Profile Microwave Peb1590sm1ss - Latch Board

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Dear APP Team,
Last year I replaced the faulty Primary Interlock (top) micro switch, its gone bad again. I need to pull out the latch board as it needs replacement as well. I removed the 2 screws but the latch board is stuck between various plastic prongs and wouldn't come out unless I open more stuff. Need help to handle this strange design.

Hi.

Looks like you need to remove the control panel first (#923 on the diagram), one screw on top from inside.Then remove the lever (#2006) and the latch board.

Here is the breakdown diagram and Microwave parts for GE PEB1590SM1SS - AppliancePartsPros.com

Thanks for the response.
I did remove the latch board by loosing the top screw for the adjoining fan and breaking some of the plastic prongs.
Removing the Control Panel 923, is not likely to help since the latch board is screwed on to steel panel 281 and then stuck between the panel and the adjoining fan.
I have received the new parts and want to install it back without breaking any thing. Appreciate your quick response on this.
Thanks

Hi.

What I can tell you from the diagram is that removing the control panel first wil allow you to remove the lever, holding the latch board.

Thanks a lot. Removed the control panel #923 (FYI, it has one screw at the bottom as well). I have installed the new latch board, micro switch etc.
Just one quick question, one of the connector to the top micro switch (the one that got busted second time) shows burning signs. Although it still hold well to the micro switch connectors. Do I need to replace this?

See the attached pics.

Thanks a lot.

Hi.

I highly recommend you to replace this conector.That could be the reason why the switch goes bad.

Hi Simon / APP Team
Thanks for the response. Agree with your recommendation.
I removed the damaged insulated 2-wire female connector, however I am not able to find the similar 2-Wire Insulated connector here. What's the part number for these so I can order these with APP.
Also will appreciate some instruction on installation of this 2 Wire female connector.
Thanks

Hi.

You don't need to replace the entire connector. Use the side cutters to cut off the bad one and replace it with regular crimp on connector.

Simon.

Hi Simon
Sorry couldn't get back earlier. Thanks for your below response.
I see the regular crimp on connectors don't fit well.
I think I may end up replacing the entire connector bunch. What's the part nbr for that to order.
Thanks

Hi.

I don't think they are sold as a separate parts from the manufacture. I have used the regular connectors many times without any problems in the past.
