I suspected the key pad,as I had a similar problem years ago.I removed the vent grill and the screw at the top of the keypad. Lifted the keypad slightly and tilted it downward, unplugged the keypad, and put the new one in place.The tricky part here is plugging in the new ribbon and ensuring its on the correct side of the contact block.A credit card made this a lot easier.The new keypad solved the problem and the rest of the family no longer thinks our house is haunted.Thanks --- M.S IN A.G.

Instead of telling you, i have question do you have any instructions on how to do the repair. It would have helped save time on the repair.

This job took longer then it should have, becasue I did not start right in the begining. I did figure it out quickly after the wrong start.

You were a big help in picking the right part to correct the problem. You should be able to help with the repair. Thank You

Didn't take a genius to see how to replace the vent grille, even for a 73 yr old female. However, instructions would have been nice as it took me a while to realize I needed to remove the old brackets in order for the new grille to fit.

display would show "Inch" and run thru 7,9,12 then start on its own. Also sometimes displayed "F2"

UNPLUGGED IT
Remove 2 screws on top of the unit holding the grille in- remove the grille
Remove the one screw at the top of the display and tilt the top of the display towards you.
At the bottom is a hinge that slides up to be removed- leave the screw in place.
The conector for the keypad is a ribbon connector that is attached to a black connector about 2/3 of the way up the circuit board- to release the ribbon cable the highest end of the connector has a plastic release clip that you can bend with your fingernail allowing the long edge of the connector topivot about the (lower) hinged end. Not hard to do just don't force it.
Do not remove any wires-remove the screws holding the circuit board on (2 I think) at the bottom.
The top of the circuit board is held in by sheet metal features in the housing- mine were a bit tough but its obvious how to remove it.
The keypad/exterior sheet metal & display assembly should be free now- support and place display up on a work surface.
To remove the current keypad CAREFULLY pry around the edge/junction of the ext sheet metal and the keypad. The keypad is held on with adhesive and will require some effort. Also the keypad extends slightly under the ext shett metal so it will be a pain. the goal is to start it peeling w/o damaging the sheet metal around it.
To remove the remaining adhesive (& paper) use denatured alcohol.
The new keypad is made to go under the ext sheet metal but it isn't possible to install it this way. I trimmed the edges of the new keypad so that it would drop in. You only get one try installing the keypad so make sure it fits before putting it in with the adhesive exposed.
YOU MADE IT!! Is Fixed !!

Door cracked at handle

  • Customer: ted from phoenix AZ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Part came in 24 hrs w/ no special "fast shipping requested" . Old door pried off fairly easily using a stiff but thin butter knife. Putting new door on was easy but only with 2 people: one person holding the handle side open and the other handling the new door. Fit the new door on the hinge side first and slowly push top and bottom edges inward until clicks are heard as the individual hooks engage the frame. When done, go back along each top and bottom edge to be sure all hooks are engaged and no gaps occur btwn door and frame. Trying to do it alone with no one holding the door open and steady would have been difficult.

This is not easy to do. I done it before to replace a broken window and it was a real bitch. I considered buying a new door rather then do it again.All I wanted to do was tighten two screws that hold the handle.
I used the advice found on your web site from a person who did it using quarters and putty knifes to remove the choke and the door insert. Sounded silly but it works like a charm. I advise anyone who needs to do this repair to use that info on your web site. It will save lots of frustration. Be sure to have plenty of quarters and a few pennies.

The old grill had already been removed so the new one fit right in and it was only a matter of tightening the 2 screws to hold the new one in place. Simple. Looks great. No one will ever know it was broken.

My husband unscrewed the three screws on the end of the door, popped the exterior door off and removed the old door handle to save the screws. He then attached the new handle to the new exterior door. He snapped it into place and replaced the 3 screws at the end of the door! NOW IT IS JUST LIKE NEW! Just a matter of minutes.

Microwave Turntable Won't Rotate

I turned off the power to the oven at the breaker. I then removed the side trim pieces by removing the screws located behind the lower oven door. I removed the plastic trim pieces above and below the microwave oven and removed the control panel and slid it into the opening above the microwave. I located the two screws securing the microwave into the frame and began sliding it out. I had to disconnect a small wiring harness and two wires from the microwave that were attached inside the opening above the microwave. The microwave section was the easily slid out, turned on it's side where the turntable motor was accessed by removing the access panel. I pulled the old motor, checked resistance and it matched the new motor. I then checked the old motor by applying 120V to it and it ran FINE! I thought I had the wrong part, but decided to install the new motor anyway. I did, secured the access panel and replaced the microwave in the frame. I reconnected the wires and secured the control panel and tested the microwave...and the turntable works!

Removed two screws to that held the old bracket. Installed new part and replaced the screws. Very simple. About 10 minutes. The part cost about $38.00. A repairman charged my neighbor 100 + dollars for the part and plus installation for the exact same thing. I highly recommend Partselect.
