The microwave was a built in so I needed to remove five screws from the metal band around the frame, and two screws that attached the control panel to the microwave. After that I lifted the control panel up and out. The replacement of the button was easy once I released the clip on the defective one with a screw driver. The old springs were still good, and the new button slid right in. All works fine. The control panel also controls the built-in oven, so if I could not fix it it would have meant I had to buy a whole new combo oven Microwave. I was told it could not be repaired. Thanks to you I proved them wrong, and saved a couple thousand in the process. Not a bad investment for less than $10.
