Loosened but did not remove screws that held up microwave over range,removed grill on top by loosening screws that held grill in place.removed small mesh grill on right side of microwave, this gave me access to capacitor ,diode is connected from one lead of capacitor to a metal plate ground,Disccarged capacitor to ground by shorting terminals to ground using a thick insulated screwdriver.Since the diode was screwed to the top of the metal plate I cut it out with a pair of side cutters .I then connected the new diode to the capacitor with my long nose pliers and groonded the other end to a more accessible part of the metal grounding plate.I then replaced all parts in reverse order.Works like a charm.

Taking the door apart was easy once you figured out how it came apart. Youtube videos were not helpful as every brand of microwave is different; what works for one does not work for another. My Kitchenaide has little interior hooks on the inside of the door, 8 on top, 8 on bottom, 4 on the hinge side. You have to pry the door-skin up to get teh hook disengaged, then get a putty knife or similar to keep the hooks from re-engaging. Once you have about 6 or 7 undone, the door starts to come apart. Eventually the exterior of the door comes off; the interior of the door remains hinged. After that, you'll figure it out...

After removing the over-the-range unit (no small feat!) I had to figure out how to open the case (good puzzle!). Capacitor had already discharged, so it was very easy to reach in, pop the old fuse and install the new one! As per your advice, I found out I was a "28%-er"! Upon re-installation, the microwave "sprang to life"!! Thanks, "Part Select"!! I was already shopping around for a new machine! (Now if you could only tell me an easier way to re-mount this heavy beast over the stove!!!)

Replaced the door handle

It's a simple repair but costly. Just open the door remove the three screws on the side of door. Now use a small screw driver or metal putty knife to remove the chooker collar around the door " be careful this can easly be broken". Okay now the metal inner door is easier to remove if you slightly bend the tabs up around the door. Look carefully you should be able to see where they catch. Once you do that carefully seperate the outter door cover. Careful sometimes it will pop right out and fall. Please no more further repairs needed. Just screw in the new handle push tabs back out on the metal inner door then snap everything back together and reinstall the three screws.

Remove the 3 screws in the door. You will have to pry the door frame apart. use 1 or more flat screwdrivers to pry the inner liner from the medal door. There are plastic pieces that recess into the inner door from the medal frame. Once you get a few loose it is easy to remove the frame. Locate the 2 screws from the handle and attach the new handle. Then reverse the process to put the frame and inner door back together and put the 3 screws back in.

The lady in the Nova Scotia call center should get all the credit for being able to identify the part I needed from only the very limited information I was able to give her. Employee of the month for her. She also had such a great can do attitude. Lawence Baier
