Purchased new part online. Partselect parts list indicated 3 different part numbers with no other distinction. As a result, I accidentally ordered the wrong color. I had to mail the part back and reorder. Partselect should correct their parts lists to indicate the color of the part.
Once I had the right part, installation was simple.

removed the holder screw and reshaped the holder and installed the vent grill to the microwave. The design appears to be a poor one which allows breakage.

When we received the vent grille, my husband popped it back on within 5 seconds . . . it was that easy! It took more time to get the part out of the shipped box than it took to put it on. Make sure you get the correct part and color, though. I didn't get the correct color and had to ship it back (my fault so I had to pay the shipping costs again, plus the shipping cost to get a correct part). If you have any questions when ordering, just call them -- they are the nicest people to deal with. All in all, this was an excellent experience!

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.

My unit is a wall mount/cabinet/built-in model. The repair is actually fairly simple once you determine that the actual microwave is just a component of the entire unit, and that it (the microwave) can be easily removed from the unit. I did not figure this out until after I removed the entire unit (disconnect the power supply, lift the entire bulky, heavy unit out of the cramped space in the cabinet, etc). Once I got it out I figured out how easy it is to remove the actual oven - a couple of screws, literally. The unit is a bit bulky, but not particularly heavy and is quite manageable. I did this entire process alone.

I got the oven out, rolled it on it's side and found the plate to access the motor. The plate is located on the bottom/underside of the unit. The plate is nothing more than a section of the underside of the metal housing that has been cut-out as an access point. This "cut-out" is not complete - that is, not completely cut out so as to all the plate to stay in place without the need for screws, etc, until you actually have to use it. I used a pair of dykes to cut the couple of points still connecting this plate, removed the two phillips screws to remove the motor, disconnected the two wires connected, then reversed to complete the repair. You then flip the cut-out plate over/rotate it, and some screw holes line up. Find a couple of small screws, and re-attach the plate to cover the motor.

The actual fix is really easy, again, once you figure out the simple way to remove the oven. I am an idiot, so you will probably find this much easier. I could probably do this repair now, after my experience, in less than 30 minutes (probably less than 15 minutes). I probably save a couple hundred $ by doing it myself so was well worth the time to do it. Good luck.
