Removed existing canopy by removing two screws and sliding out. Removed small fan assembly and detached brown plastic mount from mica.

Attempted to snap brown plastic mount to new canopy but had problems with it staying in place, even after snapping into holes on canopy. Applied a very small amount of glue to hold it in place and balanced fan assembly on part and slid into place. Re inserted the two screws.

Microwave would not heat food

First and most important - unplug AC power 24 hours before service.

I removed the vent cover above the main door, then I removed the screw which holds the control panel in place, unplugged the main connector on the control panel so I would have enough room to work, removed grounding screw from the DIODE ASSY, pulled connector off the CAPACITOR with pliers, installed new DIODE ASSY.

After installation of DIODE and the control Panel, I plugged in the AC power and allowed the CAPACITOR to charge - this takes about an hour or so, then test. Works perfect!

We had an accident on Christmas day, while using the convection option on the microwave, the glass plate and ring assembly slipped down from where it was temporally being stored, and shattered into many pieces.I was really lucky, we had a older GE microwave that we scrapped out. My wife and I decided to keep the glass plate and rotating ring, when we tried the parts it wouldn't turn. I decided to try a new rotating ring considering the glass plate would of cost quite a bit more. When the part came, I tried the ring and as I said I was really lucky, it worked perfectly. The ring from the old microwave made the glass plate sit too high and consequently wouldn't turn. It wasn't really much of a repair, but it all worked out great, the parts site was easy to use and the parts came when they said they would.

Removed screws holding outer shell. Pushed in door handle to identify faulty switch. Ordered part. Pryed switch out with screw driver and unplugged. reinstalled new switch. Presto. BUT... I did NOT use both hands while working on the microwave. I did not release the energy from the capacitor or whatever holds the killer amperage even when unplugged. It would be advisable to do this first. I did not because it seemed complicated, so I was EXTREMELY CAREFUL about not touching anything else inside the unit. I used one hand only so if I did touch something I would not get juiced through the chest. It was a piece of cake repair, but I would not go deeper without doing the discharge routine.

Halogen lamps did not light-burned out

Removed the light cover screw with a Phillips screwdriver. Removed the lamps from the packaging just enough to free up the 2 prongs for fitting in the socket. Make sure the power is in the "off position". Install the bulbs one at a time by lining up the 2 sockets (Very important not to touch the halogen bulb glass surface while installing them). Energize the light switch to check operation of the new bulbs.
