I removed the three screws holding the door trim panel and handle. It was an easy job and required a little force. I removed the glass and backing from the trim and removed the handle. I used two screws to remove the handle. I used a few pieces of double-sided tape tp secure the from glass panel in place. I them re-installed the door and handle with the three screws and side of the door away from the hinge. Nice, neat and very easy job.

Vent had broken off. Door was starting to peel from the heat generarated by the heat of the stove.

After researching online, I found that I needed the turntable drive coupling, part#PS993087. when I went to your site it showed the same part but the part number had changed but said it would fit my microwave. Well, I was really surprised and happy when the part I received 3 days after I placed the order, with normal shipping,fit perfectly and now my turn table in my microwave works. I have marked this site a a favorite and will use it I'm sure soon. Being a single women and having to figure out how to fix the things on a small buget, I'm learning a lot and have a lot of respect for men that know how to do all the repair stuff. Thanks so much, I have been able to mark this off my list of things to fix. Have a nice day. Cj- age, 58

Loud buzzing noise and no heat.

PartSelect website indicated replacing the high voltage power supply diode is the solution for "no heat" 99% of the time, but the diode was OK. There is more info at the website concerning the case of "loud buzzing and no heat" indicating the magnetron needs to be replaced. As an electrical engineer with knowledge of microwave components, this was also my best guess. However, getting to the magnetron is not the easiest job, but it's not impossible. You also have to be careful to bleed off any charge stored on the high voltage power supply capacitor. Luckily, I found my KitchenAid service manual tucked away inside the unit since I couldn't find it online.

I just looked at the broken one to see where it broke and looked at the microwave. I realized that there were two screws that were supposed to hold the vent grill along with 3 slots on the bottom. I inserted the slots on the bottom into the preset spaces for them, lined up the top with the two screws and screwed them into place. Checked to make sure the screws were not too tight and that was it. New vent grill in place and ready to go.

I called the repair/parts number to make sure I had correct parts and the young lady instructed me as to the size of the serving tray; within 48 hours we had the VERY carefully wrapped carton opened and back in the microwave, working perfectly. Thank you. We'll recommend you to our friends!

Door handle separated from front panel

  • Customer: Floyd from Coral Springs FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The front panel is held in place by 3 screws on the right edge of the door. Remove the screws then carefully pry off the front panel from the door. This takes some doing so as not to put too much stress on the door itself as you pry the panel off. The back of the panel is snapped into the door so it isn't easy to pry off. Once you have loosened the panel be careful that the glass window and its frame behind the panel does not fall out and crash to the floor. Once the panel is removed and the glass window and frame are safe, you will see 2 self tapping screws on the back of the front panel that holds the door handle to the front panel. I ordered 2 new screws but they were machine screws, not self tapping. Make sure you keep the old screws! Screwing in the self tapping screws to the new handle was not easy. Be sure you have the proper size screw driver so as not to strip the heads. It takes a lot of pressure to get the screws all the way into the handle. Make sure the glass panel and frame are set in properly than push the frame on to the door so it snaps in all the way around. I worked from left to right as I tapped the panel in place. Once it's in place and the screw holes on the panel and door frame line up replace the 3 screws and you're done.
