First I removed the top vent, this exposed the control panel holding screw - I removed this screw lifted to unhooked and I swing the panel to the left - disconnect the harness attached to this panel and be able to removed it out of the way, then I removed a fan assembly located on the back of the cavity -- this exposed the capacitor - carefully disconnect the capacitor ( I was a little concern about this because is a high voltage cap) I used isolating pliers, just in case energy was stored, that's it. Put everything back and microwave start working again. I think I still need to find out why the fan is not automatically start running after I start the microwave and the internal light only goes on sometimes when I open the door - can anybody help on this?
