This is an over stove top mounted oven. Remove oven from mount and place on a work surface with padding to support the lamps and vent holes. Strip the case off and locate the noted other "most likely" parts. Watch out for the Capasitor. Read the test note available for each part; Diode, Thermister Fix, Capasitor and Magnitron. Do the test checks. My issue wasn't obvious because I think the Capasitor was discharged and needed to be hot to check the Magnitron. (I'm not an electrical engineer so...) At this point I did the foolish thing...I plugged the unit in and ran it. Watching from a distance I saw sparks fly from the top side of the Magnitron with the same result from my cup of water (cold-no sprks here.) I replaced the diode and tried again, same result. I ordered the Mag and the Thrmst-Fix. Thrmst-Fix was on BO when the Mag got here so I installed the part. Had to remove several pieces to afford room to work and still had to stretch and pry to get the old out and new in. Mag is held in place with Torx screws so check that before you start. No other tool works. Mag was the problem for this unit. Some problems encountered: Parts and pieces were quick in arriving as long as they were not Back Ordered. Be careful to follow a thread for your product to order parts. These review/instructions are mixed for simular appliances and sometimes lead off to other part lists and numbers. Prices differ from model to model, list to list and the part numbers change. Go back to your product and then trace for the correct parts. I noted a $40 price dif.between Magnitrons from simular part lists. When you receive the part check to match the part numbers, Manuf. no. are different from the Part Select No. but can be crossed. Otherwise using this site's instructions, checks, insulated tools, big rubber gloves and a face shield I managed to save a $600 machine from the junk pile. Parts as ordered were recieved and return of un-touched parts were accepted by Parts Select without unexpected hassle. Thanks for a positive experience.

I received the part very quickly after I ordered it-within 2 days! Part was the right part, and had instructions which were fairly easy to follow. It took only about 5 minutes and a screwdriver to install the new vent grill. Awesome, looks great, right part and an ease to install. My neighbor had the same problem and I ordered another which also came within 2 days! 5 minutes and it was installed perfectly also. Appreciate the great service!
