I took the old one out and put the new one in. I want to take this time to tell you that I have repaired a few of my appliances with very little difficulty and a much lower price than Kitchen Aid charges. One was a Micrwave vent, knobs on a stove top, little rubber knobs on the bottom of a grate of my cook top which was triple the cost from what I paid to Parts Select and the water seal on a dishwasher. Thing wear out and need to replaced; however most of these things can be repaired by the consumer.

The top front grille screwed in tabs had cracked

  • Customer: Roland from Plantation FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

The trick is to align the bottom and top tabs first. This take a little coaxing and patience, but once these snap in, the tabs with the threads line up perfectly.

TIP: Thread the screws into the metal tabs while supporting the tabs with your hand BEFORE installing the grille, back them out, and then install. The threads were a little tight, and putting a lot of pressure on them while the tabs are in the slots risks breaking them off.

Repair part delivered only a few days after purchasing on-line. The replacement part was the exact same as that on the original unit. Installation took about 1 minute involving 2 screws. Ordering was very easy.

This is a highly recommended parts store.

The old vent slipped right off because the tabs holding the screws were broken. It took just a few minutes to screw in the new vent. Also, I want to add that I only ordered the part on Friday and it arrived Saturday morning. I wish all repairs were this simple!

The repair was simple and easy. It required a Phillips head screw driver only. I Removed the vent grill and replaced it with the new grill there were only two screws that needed to be removed then refastened. Total five minutes. I also replaced the grease filters which took about a minute total time. I do many of my own repairs to my home and appliances .I've found your service parts delivery prompt and precise.

Have you ever tried getting the inner seal off a microwave door in order to replace a door latch or the handle? It is not an easy job. I was advised by a service technician that they usually just order a complete new door for a broken latch or handle as it is so difficult to get the seal off without damaging the door. I priced a new door, and it would have been more than the microwave, so I searched the internet for ideas. I found several sites that gave various suggestions. What worked for me was to slide a putty knife inbetween the top of the inner seal and the door - starting at the top right corner and working along the top first. I actually used several knives so that the six clips that are along the top did not pop back into their sockets. The first clip is 55 mm from the top right corner. There is then more every 95mm along the top of the frame. If you can push these in with a knife, keeping the knives in place, you will be able to carefully pull the seal out. From the top left corner going down, there is a clip 25mm from the top, and another 85mm from that point - again push a knife in to release the clip. Carefully work your way along the bottom, The clips are in the same place as on the top. Then work along the edge closest to the microwave. With a bit of patience, the seal will come out in one piece. Even if you break it getting it out, it is better than the alternative, and you can always get another one at partselect.com
Once I had got the seal off, I thought I was home dry and the rest would be easy. Wrong! To get at the broken latch for the door (same if I was replacing the handle) I still had to get the stainless steel outer shell away from the main frame of the door (without bending it) and there was clips all along that had to somehow all be pushed out of their sockets at the same time so that the stainless steel outer shell would come away from the rest of the door, and I could get at the screw that held the latch in place that needed to be replaced. I came up with the idea of pushing 2 quarters in the gap between the door shell and the main frame next to every single clip. I then went back along where all of he quarters were pushed in, and pushed a penny inbetween the two quarters and this opened up the clips just enough to disengage them from their sockets, but without bending the stainless steel. As I gradually went around the door pushing the pennies in, the outer shell poped off, and I could get at the screw to get the broken latch off. Once I knew I could get at the part that I need to replace, I went on line and searched for a place to get Kitchenaid parts. That is when I found this site. I ordered the 2 parts that I needed from partselect.com at around 2.30 PM. At 3.15 PM the next day they were delivered to me in South Florida, and within 10 minutes they were out of the packing, and I had the microwave fixed. Getting to the part that needed replacing wasn't easy, but I hope that the above makes it easier for somebody else in a similar situation. The service from partselect.com was excellent. I had never heard of them before, but would certainly recommend them to anybody.
Regards

Why a tenant would remove and discard the grease filters without replacing them is beyond me! But, I removed the filters from the package and slid them into place. Two minutes tops. I would like to add that I ordered these on Thursday afternoon, and I had them on Saturday; awesome customer service!

This is the second replacement tray we have in installed. The first one ( Not From Here ) we had for less than 5 months, we made a bag of popcorn, and about 5 minutes later we heard a crash, not knowing where the noise came from we dismissed it. The next day we opened the microwave a saw the plate had shattered. So we hope that this will not do the same thing.
