Unplug the microwave unit from power source. I removed the air vent from the microwave that is located at the top of the microwave. Next I unscrewed the control panel that was held by one screw towards the top of the microwave. The panel then needs pushed upward to release from main microwave chasis. Gently remove control panel. Unplug the 3 main communication lines and the 1power line from the PCB. Pull up on ribbon cable slot in order to release pressure from the ribbon cable. Pull from the sides of the ribbon cable slot. Then the cable can be removed. You will then remove the 4 screws holding the PCB to the control panel and release the 2 hinges holding the board in place. Put PCB back together on new control assymbly. Plug in new ribbon cable, communication cables, and power cable back into the PCB. Put rest of microwave back together and test out. All went well with mine thank goodness. I am a technician at trade so it was easy for me to know how and what to do.
