No Heat / sparks

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

This is an over stove top mounted oven. Remove oven from mount and place on a work surface with padding to support the lamps and vent holes. Strip the case off and locate the noted other "most likely" parts. Watch out for the Capasitor. Read the test note available for each part; Diode, Thermister Fix, Capasitor and Magnitron. Do the test checks. My issue wasn't obvious because I think the Capasitor was discharged and needed to be hot to check the Magnitron. (I'm not an electrical engineer so...) At this point I did the foolish thing...I plugged the unit in and ran it. Watching from a distance I saw sparks fly from the top side of the Magnitron with the same result from my cup of water (cold-no sprks here.) I replaced the diode and tried again, same result. I ordered the Mag and the Thrmst-Fix. Thrmst-Fix was on BO when the Mag got here so I installed the part. Had to remove several pieces to afford room to work and still had to stretch and pry to get the old out and new in. Mag is held in place with Torx screws so check that before you start. No other tool works. Mag was the problem for this unit. Some problems encountered: Parts and pieces were quick in arriving as long as they were not Back Ordered. Be careful to follow a thread for your product to order parts. These review/instructions are mixed for simular appliances and sometimes lead off to other part lists and numbers. Prices differ from model to model, list to list and the part numbers change. Go back to your product and then trace for the correct parts. I noted a $40 price dif.between Magnitrons from simular part lists. When you receive the part check to match the part numbers, Manuf. no. are different from the Part Select No. but can be crossed. Otherwise using this site's instructions, checks, insulated tools, big rubber gloves and a face shield I managed to save a $600 machine from the junk pile. Parts as ordered were recieved and return of un-touched parts were accepted by Parts Select without unexpected hassle. Thanks for a positive experience.

Took the replacement plate out of the box and put it in the microwave in seconds. I never realized how much of a difference having the correct microwave plate would make. It's great to have it back.

Microwave was making a grinding sound

  • Customer: William from Huntington Beach CA
  • Difficulty: Easy

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.

You had alerted that it was imperative to unplug unit before starting to remove defective bulb. As described, there was silicon on bulb and socket and bulb broke upon my attempt to remove. Had to use needle nose pliers to get metal base of old bulb from socket, then all went well.

I want to thank PartSelect for thier assistance with my grease and filters that were needed for our microwave. We just bought a home and although the appiances are still in good working condition and only 6 years old they have not been maintaned well at all. The filers needed replacing and our local chain of hardware stores do not carry any of the sizes we needed. I went on line and found PartSelect.com and reviewed what they offered. I really could not find what I needed so I called customer service and the women on the other end of the phone went through in great detail as to the sizes and quantities I would need. I have since then received the filters and they were extremely easy to install and fit perfectly. Very helpful site. KDS
