Question and Answers

Q:

Removing Unit MVH1615WW Goldstar Microwave oven

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the microwave.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your model number of Goldstar mvh1615vw.

I see you are looking for removal of the microwave and sorry but need to get you the following notice.

 I can appreciate wanting to diagnose and repair the microwave yourself, however I strongly recommend against it. We do not give repair information on microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. You need special equipment to work on a microwave starting with an anti-static wrist strap grounded to the microwave to even test components in it. Even minor door repairs and adjustments can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test MUST be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service.

 If you have further questions please let me know.

Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

Q:

door latch removal and reinstall on microwave

A:

Good morning... I can fully understand your concern regarding this issue but I would offer caution if you're thinking of attempting repairs yourself. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged. Even replacing a door latch may well require a radiation shielding test to ensure safety in the kitchen. Keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information on this topic. Until you hear from us, have a nice day.

I understand wanting to repair the door latch. However, microwaves do not make good do-it-yourself projects. The latch is an important part that ensures the door is latched so no radiation escapes.

Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as replacing the door latch, can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test MUST be performed after any microwave service.

It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME. We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.
