Installation of the damper was effortless but removing the microwave, cutting holes vertically through an overhead cabinet then installing ducting with a ninety degree bend, through another cabinet, and then through outside wall consumed most of the time and effort.Your service, packaging, and timely (next day!) were extremely helpful.

There are five Philips screws on the bottom outside cover .one at each corner and one at the front center. Remove all four at the corners .leaving the front center for last. When the last screw is removed ,the cover will hinge down, it is attached to clips at the back that allow it fold down. The wire attached to the light socket is connected by a pull apart plug. Grasp at each end of the hard plastic connector and pull outward ,DO NOT PULL ON THE Wires ! Lift the cover from the back of the microwave place it on a flat surface on a towel keep it from sliding around. Remove the screws holding the porcelain sockets. Reverse procedure to reinstall .Installing new Halogen lamps is suggested. Use a clean tissue or cloth to handle the lamps, finger prints on the lamp will shorten the life .

Take the inside frame around the glass off by popping it loose with a screwdriver, then pop off the outside cover that goes around the glass with a screwdriver. My handle was completely broken. When covers are removed there are 2 screw that hold the handle to the front frame and 2 screws that hold the handle to the door frame. Replace the frames and your back in business. Just remember this, DON,T LOOSE THE SCREWS, When ordering your new handle, it Doesn't come with the screws. Good Luck

This is the second time this happened for me. The shaft for the Coupler breaks and will no longer let the plate turn. I looked at the instructions of letting the bottom of the microwave down, etc. and all I could think of is I don't think so. I used the tweezers to try to get the broken piece of the coupler but neither time was it intact. Could not locate the broken part so took the liberty of just putting the new part on the shaft, pushed down and viola I now have a turning table again. I am an 83 age female who likes to try being a do-it-your selfer. Of course there are times I am not successful but. . .By thinking back of why this part keeps breaking I think it may be my fault. I always turn the glass plate around manually when the handle of the cup or mug is out of reach. May be my fault and maybe not. Anyway this time I ordered 2 of the same parts just for future repair hopefully not needed. V.J.

Once we noticed the turntable not working I removed the piece and noticed it was broken at the base of the coupler, took a vacuum and removed the broken piece and installed the new part. Thanks for the help!

Opened the microwave oven door, unscrewed two screws which held the control panel on, then I removed two of the door switches (each had two screws), and then used the continuity tester to see which one was not operating. It turned out to be the secondary door switch, replaced it and to my amazement, the microwave worked. I have never repaired an appliance before but I didn't want to replace our over-the-stove built in microwave. It was the best day ever when it was working again! The hardest part was getting myself to try the repair.

Watched How to repair a Microwave that turns on when the door is opened Video on the web. From this took a shot at the switch was the problem. When I removed the switch it was defective. The small button was in and when you turned the switch upside down the button would drop back into position. Ordered a switch for $25.oo , installed it and the microwave is working fine.

How? I handed it to my husband. Done. Haha. He removed the screws, slid the grill aside, removed the old filter and slipped the new one in place. Replaced the grill and screws, viola'! Quick and easy. No sweat, so swearing. Thank you for a simple solution. It was a pleasure.

At first I thought it was just the bulb, but I wasn't able to find a video of the exact model. The dificult part was figuring out how the vent housing came off (turns out it slid to the left then lifted out) but after I figured that out, replacing the cable assembly and the bulb was really easy.
