Cracked Outer Door Frame

  • Customer: Jerry from Stevens Point WI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 4 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
Overall a very easy fit, the key for me was being gentle with the glass if your door has an extreme crack (as mine did). If it does, the glass can easily fall out of the frame. The plastic clips that hold the glass to the frame are also quite fragile, so just gently work the glass into the clips without forcing it.

Took me about 20 minutes.

1) Remove 3 screws from side of door
2) Remove 2 screws from bottom of door
3) Carefully slide outer frame of of door.

If crack is extreme (as mine was), be careful that the glass does not completely fall out when removing frame

4) I used a putty knife to carefully pry up the top part of the frame as it has clips that fit into slots on the door.
4)Once frame is removed use screwdriver to remove door handle
5) Remove glass from frame and replace with new one. Use the putty knife to gently push the clips onto to it as the plastic clips that hold the glass look easily breakable
6) Re-attach door handle
7) Slide new frame back onto door, push top clips down into door top and replace all screws

This is not easy to do. I done it before to replace a broken window and it was a real bitch. I considered buying a new door rather then do it again.All I wanted to do was tighten two screws that hold the handle.
I used the advice found on your web site from a person who did it using quarters and putty knifes to remove the choke and the door insert. Sounded silly but it works like a charm. I advise anyone who needs to do this repair to use that info on your web site. It will save lots of frustration. Be sure to have plenty of quarters and a few pennies.

Microwave Turntable Won't Rotate

  • Customer: Steven from Sacramento CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I turned off the power to the oven at the breaker. I then removed the side trim pieces by removing the screws located behind the lower oven door. I removed the plastic trim pieces above and below the microwave oven and removed the control panel and slid it into the opening above the microwave. I located the two screws securing the microwave into the frame and began sliding it out. I had to disconnect a small wiring harness and two wires from the microwave that were attached inside the opening above the microwave. The microwave section was the easily slid out, turned on it's side where the turntable motor was accessed by removing the access panel. I pulled the old motor, checked resistance and it matched the new motor. I then checked the old motor by applying 120V to it and it ran FINE! I thought I had the wrong part, but decided to install the new motor anyway. I did, secured the access panel and replaced the microwave in the frame. I reconnected the wires and secured the control panel and tested the microwave...and the turntable works!

Took out the turntable parts to ensure I ordered the correct cooking tray. Matching those with photos of related parts on PartSelect worked great. Put turntable drive and support ring in place and cooking tray went in very easily. Plan to order a second one to have on hand for this rental property.
