I thought that if I went one more time to visit my son, and the microwave tray was still gone (due to their having broken it), I would just order the part MYSELF!! So, that is what I had to do. They have been without this for at least 3-4 months........ Well, it was sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after I ordered it! Easy, easy, easy..........thank you!

removed old covers which were cracked and dirty.
the repair part looked exactly like the original but did not fit correctly. i had to do some changing of the size to make it fit. it does not clip in place as it should but we are living with it as it does cover the light bulb. the grease filter is perfect

After reading on-line about other Amana microwaves, that said the arching was probablly due to dirt or grease & I knew it wasn't dirty, I decided to try the sandpaper recommended to clean the carbon from the wall where the shelf holder had burned several years ago. This caused the remainder of the clip to become loose. I then took a sharp knife & popped the clip out which left a neat square hole which your shelf holder popped right into. The filters were an afterthought because I didn't want to pay shipping for only a $2 item

Turn table stopped working.

The turn table motor stopped turning ,but we never turned the off button off on the microwave and kept using it ,so it shorted to the outlet neutral (white) wire at the circuit breaker fuse panel , the wire burnt off. I cut the wire re-installed it in a good buss connector.That restored power back to the outlet.** So now to replace bad Turn-Motor: Using phillip screw driver remove (bottom)filter/light panel- 10 screws, unplug lights and motor connectors, lower panel out of the way ,remove 2 screws from motor and replace motor. Install in reverse order. (Fast Fix)**Note:If you had other problems like I did consult with a professional electrician.

Microwave would not cook

All the electrics worked on Amana microwave EXCEPT for the cooking function. Inspected the control board and found the upper switch on the door interlock was burnt. Installed new switch in minutes and everything now works fine. Unfortunately, had to purchase expensive two switch "kit" although only one switch was kaput. PartsSelect mailing was SUPER fast. Thanks for looking, Scott
