Microwave was making a grinding sound

Problem was easily diagnosed using the internet as a resource, problem was a bad stirrer motor. Hardest part of the repair was the removal of the microwave. Once off the wall, you remove the outer cover and a molded plastic casing directly underneath the outer cover at the top of hte microwave to expose the stirrer motor. Removed two screws and two wires and the old motor is out. Did exactly the opposite to install the new motor. The kit I recvd included among other things the motor, a new inside cover, plastic rivets and even silicone to seal the inside cover. I am sure I saved a couple hundred dollars by doing myself.

What was amazing is that the part arrived the day after I ordered it, it was a perfect fit. We simply unscrewed the old door and put the new on on. Had a little trouble making it fit, but we used a little more pressure and it popped right on, we screwed it in place. Thank you for your fast delivery

visible sparking inside top of MW unit

  • Customer: Robert from Charleston SC
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Remove the two screws to the plastic vent strip at the top of the unit. That exposes a metal cover (upper right) held in place by two more screws. (Found that removing the screw holding the key panel in place and moving that out of the way made for more work room) Remove the metal cover. The HV diode (visible) on one end is secured to the chassis by a screw. The other end is fitted to the HV capacitor. So unscrew one end and pull the HV diode off the capacitor. The replacement fits on like the old one came off. Very simple repair. But it would be safe to short the capacitor terminals to the chassis first. Noticed that it appeared the sparking was caused by the HV diode's outer casing being worn by the asbestos covered wire next to it and laying against it. I made sure the two were not touching, before putting the covers back on. Also, the problem started with an occasional spark when the MW started. It quickly deteriorated to a full, non-stop electrical sparking. You can hear it, smell it, and see it through the top vent. You don't need to remove unit to work on it.

Others had suggested using a putty knife to "gently" remove the outer door panel. I found my narrow blade putty knife was not sturdy enough. After several attempts I finally switched to a wide blade putty knife and blade screwdriver. This did the trick. Outer door panel came away and after that it was relatively easy repair. I was really impressed by the wwll protected packaging used for shipping the new panel to me.

Ordered the part on PartSelect on Sunday afternoon. The part arrived on Tuesday evening. I followed the instructions on the reviews on the PartSelect site. 1. I took out the three (3) screws on the right side of the damaged panel. 2. I placed the screws in a bowl so not to lose them. 3. I pried the damaged front panel off with butter knife (it was a little harder to get off than expected). 4. I cleaned the glass. 5. I replaced the glass in the mounts on the new front panel. 6. I snapped the front panel into place and reinserted the screws. Boom. Done. I threw away the damaged front panel. I don't think it was recyclable.

Super easy! Just unscrewed remainder of the vent grille, saving the old screws as instructed on other reviews I read, and replaced vent grille with perfectly fitting new one...whole process took 15 min (while 9 months pregnant with a toddler hanging on my leg!) And partselect sent the piece with regular shipping in 2 days!

Door handle cracked and front door panel cracked

After removing the three screws from the outside edge of the door , use a flat blade screwdriver and you fingers to pry the base of the front plastic panel off the door. The cover is held in place with molded in plastic clips . If you are just trying to swap the handle, I'd suggest you buy a new plastic door panel as it's tough to remove without risking it cracking (sorry it is quite expensive...but MUCH cheaper than a new appliance). Once removed, the glass outer window has to be removed by gently prying back the plastic clips that hold the internal bezel that hold it in place. You'll have to take the screws out of the old handle and re-use them . I backed up my screws with penny washers to spread the force applied to the plastic panel...probably the cause of the cracking in the first place. On reassembling (the reversed of taking it to bit) make sure the glass is clean on the inside (no fingerprints) before you snap everything back together. I gave it a "bit difficult" because if you don't act with finesse, you'll crack bits that you don't want to crack!
