I just lifted off the turntable, cleaned spilled food from under it, slipped on the gear, and replaced the turntable.

PartSelect's superb website made finding the model number and the parts diagrams for that model super fast and easy. From there, ordering the part was a snap.

We had to remove the cover on the microwave in order to have access to interior. At that point all we had to do was remove the old part and install the new one. This microwave is in our Motorhome and is 15 years old! We were totally amazed that you had the part available and were able to make the necessary repairs for less than $5.00! In addition to that we had the part in 3 days. Thank you so much for your response time and the availability of the part.

I removed the microwave from the cabinet. Removed the 3 screws on the rear side to remove the shroud. Next I removed the screw at the top of the touch panel. That allowed me to lift the panel enough to remove the original release handle, and install the new one. Works great!

Old rotary-timer microwave. Model number worn off. Unplug and discharge capacitor voltage. Remove 3 Phillips screws to slide-back, and off the sheet metal cover. Remove front, control panel retaining screw (inside, top of control panel frame) with small socket (8 mm?). Lift up and pull out panel clearing retaining plastic tabs. No need to disconnect wiring. Wiggle new button in place with pivot tabs resting in the mounting slots. Check door action before reassembling and returning to service. Local parts supply estimated 10 days to order part. Ordered from PS Friday night...received Monday. Great service!
