My husband did it by just taking off the panel on the top of the microwave and replace old with new. We cleaned up some of the accumulated grease as well on the microwave. He had a little problem with the screws. We have done this before so no big problem. Thanks

After trying to bend parts that do not bend I realized you need to remove the plastic gasket around perimeter of microwave door but leave it loosely hanging on (pry off with screwdriver) With the gasket removed you can fit the door on and the snap the gasket back in place before closing and testing. The door was a perfect fit, it works great. The door will not go on until you remove or bend back that gasket. It's not obvious how or where to remove but just put a screwdriver in there and you'll feel it pop out and it snaps right back in after assembly..

I used a medium sized flat screwdriver to insert between the upper door hinge pin and the microwave hinge bracket. I applied prying pressure by twisting on the screwdriver and the door fell off. Recommend making sure you have a good hold of the door - It almost got my toes. Installation of new door was a little more concerning with the thought of damaging my new door. I placed the lower door hinge pin into the lower bracket. Placing the upper hinge into position for prying. I recognized it was going to be a tight fit. I used the screwdriver in the same way as take off. I struggled a few times with thoughts of cracking the plastic on my new door, but finally pried enough to get the pin in the hole. The plastic around the inner door popped out of place around the hinge, but snapped back in without damage. A fairly simple project that got my heart throbbing a few times with thoughts of damage control, but all is well that ends well.

This is an OTR microwave oven, needs to be removed to diagnose problem. I did not diagnose problem properly, I searched online for possible causes, read that (99%)percent of the time the interlock switch was bad and replacement should solve my problem. It was also stated to be an easy fix,15- 45 minutes depending on ability. I ordered the relay switch. Took the oven down then removed outer shell. With my multimeter I began to test, fuses(2), interlock switches(3)and transformer. 3 interlock switches were ok, fuses were fine, and had power to the transformer, meter could not read output of transformer because of high voltage, (2300v). I'm down to magnetron (about a hundred bucks) or the touch pad/ circuit board. I have a countertop micro that I'm putting in place of the OTR. As far as Partselect, my item was shipped and delivered on time, instructions for changing that part was quite accurate. Would order from here again, just do my homework first.

The old door came off easy quick. the new door was a little different. I used a flat head screw driver, popped the bottom hinge in first and I did the same on the top. The top you had to use more pressure and use a little more force to rotate the hinge to the pin hole.

Door Handle Broken

Took longer than it should due to no instructions being in box. The removal of the old door took approx 30 secs and was self explanatory. Once I realized I had to remove the plastic inner panel on the new door to re-install it, it also took only minutes. Could have been an easy fix with instructions.
