The rear panel of most GE microwaves can be removed by following a model-specific assembly schematic. In some models, the rear panel is a fixed part of the appliance frame and cannot be removed. However, the relevant schematic can still be used to access all removable parts in the machine.
Schematics for GE microwaves are available on the GE parts website, GEApplianceParts.com. The website offers a model-number search tool to help users quickly access the correct schematics, in addition to owner’s manuals, parts lists and other documents. The schematics include detailed illustrations showing the precise position of every part and screw in the machine. Every part and screw can be purchased on the website as of 2015.
