plastic grill cover broke in several places

  • Customer: william from st james city FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

both screw mounts broke off so removal of the grill from the cover was easy.

bent clips that held plastic part of grill to stainless part of grill straight.

tried to separate the two pieces but found that the original pieces were also glued together, made the job more difficult to separate the two.

enter the putty knife, using it between the plastic and the stainless made the job much easier to separate the two.

i didn't scrape off the glue when i put the new plastic grill into the stainless and as a result the two did not fit together and seat as they should have, not the fault of the replacement part, entirely my fault.

everything worked ok but i know that if the glue had been removed, they would have fit perfectly.

replacement part was perfect

Simply remove two screws with a crosstip screwdriver securing the vent louvers from top of microwave, remove the old charcoal filter and replace new filter as describe in the owners manual. Very easy installation and partselect parts are very inexpensive and durable to other sites.

I just had to remove the screws, and the broken parts of the old grill vent (plastic part that sheared off) and put the new grill vent in place and use the existing screws to attach and that was it!

Super easy.

The 2 molded plastic holes that accept the bolts broke.

A Phillips screwdriver was all that was needed. A poor design by KitchenAid for only having (2) bolts holding this stainless steel vent grille in a plastic housing, oh well. Don't lean or pull against it to hard or it will most likely break again.

Microwave grill vent broke off from face of appliance.

The replacement part was identical to that of the original microwave and arrived in perfect condition.

The repair was extremely simple - too screws and a "snap" and it was done.

Couldn't be happier with the results. Thanks, Part Select!

Microwave Turntable Won't Rotate

  • Customer: Steven from Sacramento CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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!

The problem seemed to be in the construction of the grille--too much weight pulling on two screws mounted in plastic. Replacing the part was easy. The question is will it break again since the weak plastic parts have not been strengthened in the replacement grille.

Replacement of new vent grille took less than 5 minutes. I just wished Kitchen Aid made a product that lasted longer than 3 years. My part arrived very quickly, less than a week. Service was great and so was your price. I had no problem locating a replacement part. Kitchen Aid would not give me the parts number so I did not know if I was order the right part. But you photo really helped to narrow the correct part. Thanks
