The repair was easy, I just took off a few screws and found the broken latch spring. The real story is how easy it was to find the replacement spring from Partselect! I couldn't believe they had it, and even better yet, I ordered it one afternoon, and it came the next day with normal shipping! Unbelievable! Then I just popped it in and replaced the covers I had removed and it was working again!

Took the replacement plate out of the box and put it in the microwave in seconds. I never realized how much of a difference having the correct microwave plate would make. It's great to have it back.

Microwave was making a grinding sound

Problem was easily diagnosed using the internet as a resource, problem was a bad stirrer motor. Hardest part of the repair was the removal of the microwave. Once off the wall, you remove the outer cover and a molded plastic casing directly underneath the outer cover at the top of hte microwave to expose the stirrer motor. Removed two screws and two wires and the old motor is out. Did exactly the opposite to install the new motor. The kit I recvd included among other things the motor, a new inside cover, plastic rivets and even silicone to seal the inside cover. I am sure I saved a couple hundred dollars by doing myself.

You had alerted that it was imperative to unplug unit before starting to remove defective bulb. As described, there was silicon on bulb and socket and bulb broke upon my attempt to remove. Had to use needle nose pliers to get metal base of old bulb from socket, then all went well.

I want to thank PartSelect for thier assistance with my grease and filters that were needed for our microwave. We just bought a home and although the appiances are still in good working condition and only 6 years old they have not been maintaned well at all. The filers needed replacing and our local chain of hardware stores do not carry any of the sizes we needed. I went on line and found PartSelect.com and reviewed what they offered. I really could not find what I needed so I called customer service and the women on the other end of the phone went through in great detail as to the sizes and quantities I would need. I have since then received the filters and they were extremely easy to install and fit perfectly. Very helpful site. KDS

The only to repair the vent grill was to purchase a new one. I went ahead and found a the replacement part and waited 5 days when it arrived. Very easy installation. Ijust lined it uap amd popped it in place. With a screwdriver I made sure to extend the clips slightly to ensure they fit snuggly to ensure they held the vent tightly
