Removing old door panel and installing new one

  • Customer: William from Boulder CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Remove the old door panel by first removing the three screws on the right-hand-side (rhs) of the door.Then pry the old door panel off by using a flat-blade screwdriver. Begin at the rhs near the door handle. The door panel is attached by being pressed into plastic fingers. Once the door panel is loosened from the plastic clips, you should find that it hinges out from the hinge side of the door. If you are just replacing the door panel you will need to remove the plastic retainer and glass plate in the old door panel. These also are retained by plastic clips. You then need to remove the door handle from the old panel since you will attach this to the new door panel. I suggest putting a reasonably large washer on each of the two screws that hold the handle since it is the stress caused by these two screws that caused your old door panel to crack. The washers distribute the stress on the door over a larger larger area. Snap the glass plate from the old panel into the clips on the new door panel. Secure the glass plate with the plastic retainer than you removed from the old door panel. Begin installing the new door panel complete with the glass plate and plastic retainer by first placing it over the hinge side end of the door. The plastic tabs in the door panel should fit into recesses on the lhs of the microwave. Then gently begin pressing the new door panel into the plastic clips on the microwave frame. Work from the hinge side to the door handle side. Congratulations - you have just saved yourself $300+ on the purchase of a new microwave oven!

After taking the three screws out of the side of the door, I actually had to get help from my Dad who came over and was able to pry the top corner of the door out of the casing. I was afraid I was going to break the door. Once he got the door pried apart, I was able to replace the handle, clean the entire door and quickly snap it back into place and then replaced the screws.

Removed old outer door skin carefully so as not to break inner door or attached glass. 3 screws removed for new door skin and 2 screws need to be removed for the door handle that was not broke. Use same screws and replace on new door skin. Most of the new door skin snaps into place and is secured with the old screws. Easy maybe 15 min. to complete.
