This is the second replacement tray we have in installed. The first one ( Not From Here ) we had for less than 5 months, we made a bag of popcorn, and about 5 minutes later we heard a crash, not knowing where the noise came from we dismissed it. The next day we opened the microwave a saw the plate had shattered. So we hope that this will not do the same thing.

Why a tenant would remove and discard the grease filters without replacing them is beyond me! But, I removed the filters from the package and slid them into place. Two minutes tops. I would like to add that I ordered these on Thursday afternoon, and I had them on Saturday; awesome customer service!

It was a simple replacement of grease filter and charcoal filter in microwave/hood combination. I did use a screw driver to pry out the filters, but otherwise no tools. It was easy and straightforward.

Oven buzzed and no heat

  • Customer: Joseph from Saint Charles IL
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 26 of 29 people found this instruction helpful
First took down the hood/microwave and removed the sheet metal housing.
I changed HV diode as it was the least expensive component and the first one that internet suggested and tested bad with a ohm meter. Didn't fix a thing.
Capacitor failed test with meter so I ordered and then replaced this.
Still no change so I ordered a new magnetron.
Now I have over $100 invested in a 9 year old oven but a new one is three times this so if my time is free I am still ahead.
The magnetron may be the first part installed onto the oven. To remove the old magnetron and install the new the top plastic vent hood moldings and motor had to be removed. Pretty straight forward but not a little amount of work.
The new magnetron did the job and the oven now heats like new.

Door handle on microwave replacement

  • Customer: sal from Brooklyn NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 28 of 45 people found this instruction helpful
I opened the door to the microwave, I removed any screw visible with a screwdriver that's behind the door itself. Next you need to get inside of the door frame, so you need to slip something thin, like a metal putty knife in between and slowly pry it open, it comes out real easy. Now the screws that hold the handle are visible and easily reached. When your finished replacing the handle, carefully squeeze with your hands the two pieces together again and put back the screws. Thats it.

Microwave turntable does not work

  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

My unit is a wall mount/cabinet/built-in model. The repair is actually fairly simple once you determine that the actual microwave is just a component of the entire unit, and that it (the microwave) can be easily removed from the unit. I did not figure this out until after I removed the entire unit (disconnect the power supply, lift the entire bulky, heavy unit out of the cramped space in the cabinet, etc). Once I got it out I figured out how easy it is to remove the actual oven - a couple of screws, literally. The unit is a bit bulky, but not particularly heavy and is quite manageable. I did this entire process alone.

I got the oven out, rolled it on it's side and found the plate to access the motor. The plate is located on the bottom/underside of the unit. The plate is nothing more than a section of the underside of the metal housing that has been cut-out as an access point. This "cut-out" is not complete - that is, not completely cut out so as to all the plate to stay in place without the need for screws, etc, until you actually have to use it. I used a pair of dykes to cut the couple of points still connecting this plate, removed the two phillips screws to remove the motor, disconnected the two wires connected, then reversed to complete the repair. You then flip the cut-out plate over/rotate it, and some screw holes line up. Find a couple of small screws, and re-attach the plate to cover the motor.

The actual fix is really easy, again, once you figure out the simple way to remove the oven. I am an idiot, so you will probably find this much easier. I could probably do this repair now, after my experience, in less than 30 minutes (probably less than 15 minutes). I probably save a couple hundred $ by doing it myself so was well worth the time to do it. Good luck.

Microwave made very loud noise while on. No heat.

Unless you have a very comfortable background with electronics and electricity, I don't necessarily recommend taking apart a microwave. If you are very handy and are going to be VERY cautious to follow the rules of discharging caps and testing voltages before moving forward, then go for it. That said, I took the microwave off and apart. Not knowing where to find the parts, I was fortunate that the installer put the instruction book for the microwave inside the front vent slot above the touchpad for reference. it details the location of every part and it tells you very clearly what each part you test should show specific to this microwave on your multimeter. Find this guide online if you don't have it. Turn on the microwave for 20 seconds with a glass of water to make sure it's not heating - that with the noise means it's eeither the magnetron, cap, or diode. Read the notes on this site for all of the basic things to look for with the magnetron, diode, and capacitor. Once comfortable with the guide, locations of those devices, and how to test, then take it down and apart. Unfortunately, I didn't do all those things in that order, and it only wasted a lot of time trying to find the parts. Once I found the parts and put all the screws and covers back for all the areas that didn't need to be accessed for the repair, testing went quickly. The diode was bad. Ordered a new one and had it in 3 days or so. That means your microwave will be apart and sitting somewhere for a little while until you get the part and have time to repair it. Putting the diode back isn't too bad. Reassemble the microwave and put it back up again. If i had to do it again, it would take me 20 to 30 minutes once the microwave was down and on a table. Also, I used some bricks with towels over them or you could use some sawhorses to keep the microwave elevated so you can plug it in and run it after installing the new component. Again, make sure you discharge the cap before touching anything again even if you didn't run it, but just plugged it in.

Humming sound, not heating.

I turn off the income electricity by shutting down the corresponding circuit breaker. Then, I removed the control panel from the microwave which gave me access to the capacitor and adjacent diode. After that i unscrewed the defective diode and replaced it with the new one and BINGO!

Bought a used microwave with no mount.

I found the part number for the mount on the appliances company website. Once I had that I visited a few sites looking for part. This site was easy to use and priced right, so I ordered. A few days later the product arrived as promised and worked perfectly for the install.

Cracks in the outer door

  • Customer: Larry from Wichita KS
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 9 of 10 people found this instruction helpful
Had to remove three screws, and then had to figure out how to get the outer door off. I was a little concerned, because I didn't want to damage anything else, but it came off after a little prying.
The reassembly was very easy
thanks to parts like they have saved me a lot of money in the last three or four months.
I strongly recommend that if you need a part for an appliance contact them and I know they can help you. They are the easiest company I worked with
thank you very much Larry

Cracked front panel and door handle

  • Customer: James from Cloverdale CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 12 of 19 people found this instruction helpful
Used flathead screwdriver around the interior edges of the front panel to pry off the front panel. The handle comes with it and along with a glass panel inside. Pry off that glass panel and transer it to the new front panel and pop it back in. I removed the two screws from the cracked handle and used them to install the handle to the new front panel. But, before this I added a couple of plastic washers to hopefully distribute the load better against the front panel and maybe prolong the life of the repair. I cleaned the interior glass, since that's hopefully the last we'll ever see of it. Take the whole assy and just snap it back in place on the door. This $100 in parts probably saved me $600-700 for a new microwave / over-oven install charge.

Cracked Door Panel

  • Customer: Michael from Plantation FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

It was a rather easy job. Estimated time :30.

1. Remove the old panel-remove the three screws on the side of the door. Using a putty knife, separate the panel from the door frame. There are built in plastic clips that will separate when you gently insert and lift the the putty knife.

2. Remove the glass insert-place the damaged door panel on a flat surface. Remove the inserted glass from the old panel by pulling back on the plastic clips. The plastic glass retainer will lift out permitting access to the glass. The glass lifts right out.

3. Remove the door handle-remove the two screws that hold it in place. It will come right out.

4. Install the handle-line up the holes with the new door panel and tighten the screws.

5. Install the glass and glass retainer-line up the glass first and then install the plastic glass retainer to keep it in place. Be careful not to break the plastic clips.

6 Install the door panel-align the door panel with the door starting at the top. Go around the door until the panel is in place. Insert and tighten the three screws on the side of the door. That's it, your done!
