Burned out light bulbs in microwave hood stove

  • Customer: Herbert from Norton MA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I had some difficulty removing the glass plate because of the awkward (upside down) position of the screw that retained it. After replacing the burned out bulbs and replacig the glass plate the problem of replacing the screw involved my dropping the thing several times before I got the screw threads to catch. I got a screw thread to catch enough to hold the glass plate in position and left it at that.

Instead of telling you, i have question do you have any instructions on how to do the repair. It would have helped save time on the repair.

This job took longer then it should have, becasue I did not start right in the begining. I did figure it out quickly after the wrong start.

You were a big help in picking the right part to correct the problem. You should be able to help with the repair. Thank You

removed the two screws, removed all of the broken tab pieces, replaced with new grill, put the two screws back.,....DONE Easy as pie

After reading other entries, I have determined this is a problem with most grills on the whirlpool microwaves. Defective material ..becomes brittle and crumbles.

Removed 2 screws from top of microwave. Place new grill in place. Replaced 2 screws that were removed. What was wonderful is I ordered the part around 3 pm on a Friday. The part arrived at 9AM the next day and that was without requesting special shipment.

I didn't have to remove the old cover since it cracked and fell off the microwave already. I simply snapped in the new vent cover, screwed in the 2 screws and I was done. Super easy.

Unscrewed the remaining pieces of bracket slipped in new vent cover and attached with the two screws. Very easy since the web site showed where the vent attached. I saved over $60.00 doing this repair myself!

Removed screws holding the broken grill tabs with a phillips screwdriver
Removed broken grill and all broken tabs that fell into the vent area
Cleaned area where the new grill was to be placed
Inserted new grill onto the appropriate tabs and tightened the screws

BE CAREFUL as the tabs on the grill are thin and fragile when you insert the new grill don't force it into the slots, I used a knife as a way to slide the grill into place.

This is not easy to do. I done it before to replace a broken window and it was a real bitch. I considered buying a new door rather then do it again.All I wanted to do was tighten two screws that hold the handle.
I used the advice found on your web site from a person who did it using quarters and putty knifes to remove the choke and the door insert. Sounded silly but it works like a charm. I advise anyone who needs to do this repair to use that info on your web site. It will save lots of frustration. Be sure to have plenty of quarters and a few pennies.

I broke the grill b/c I thought it snapped on and off, not.

I removed the two screws and took off the old grill. Snapped the new grill in place and replaced the screws. This model was not shown on the list but the part fit just fine. The part arrived in 2 days! I ordered the white one and at first didn't think it matched .. maybe my microwave was bisque or almond .. but after 15 minutes of scrubbing I realized it was white but just real dirty .. lol. Now the door opens without the grill falling off. Easy fix.
