I took the old one out and put the new one in. I want to take this time to tell you that I have repaired a few of my appliances with very little difficulty and a much lower price than Kitchen Aid charges. One was a Micrwave vent, knobs on a stove top, little rubber knobs on the bottom of a grate of my cook top which was triple the cost from what I paid to Parts Select and the water seal on a dishwasher. Thing wear out and need to replaced; however most of these things can be repaired by the consumer.

Replace vent grill and filters.

I went online and found the manual for this appliance and used the instructions, which were very helpful. The filters just pop out and the new ones fit right in. No tools were needed. For the vent grill, it was necessary to move the metal tabs back and forth a few times manually before they were properly placed in order to take the two screws, which hold the grill in place. I then loosely tightened the screws (so as not to crack the plastic grill)with a Phillips Head screwdriver. When my husband got up from his nap he was pleased to see the job completed without his help.:)

The top front grille screwed in tabs had cracked

The trick is to align the bottom and top tabs first. This take a little coaxing and patience, but once these snap in, the tabs with the threads line up perfectly.

TIP: Thread the screws into the metal tabs while supporting the tabs with your hand BEFORE installing the grille, back them out, and then install. The threads were a little tight, and putting a lot of pressure on them while the tabs are in the slots risks breaking them off.

this problem started two months ago when my micro quit heating up, after all the research most agreed it was the magnetron. taking the micowave apart is not to difficult just make sure you bag all the screws accordingly. the high voltage area is on the right hand side behind a panel. caution there is a capacitor that will bite if your not careful, need to short the circuit between the two connectors with an insulated screw driver it will make a small pop or let it sit for awhile and it will discharge by itself. The magnetron worked for two days then quit, after more research i took it apart again and tightened up all the connections. Worked great on the bench but when i got it back up on the cabinet two dayslater kaput again. so again i take it down and replaced the two cheapest parts in the high voltage system, magnetron thermst fix, and h.v diode. benched tested it this time for 3 days cooking anything that i could think of, worked great. its been one week now afer installtion and it is still working.

Door handle broken

First I tried to remove the inside choke cover on the door. After breaking it in three pieces, I knew we were in trouble. Once that is removed, you have to remove the choke to get to the screws that hold the handle in place. Try to remove the choke without doing more damage appears to be impossible. A call to my local appliance repair center confirmed that replacing the handle is almost impossible to do without damaging the door. They do not even attempt to replace one. By the time you replace the handle, you will need a new door and then you realized you would had been better off the replace the oven. And that what we will do. A four year old over-the-range microwave and no door handle. It is a shame, but you hear the same stories from others. I am in the food business and my company uses commercial microwaves. We replace handles on these units with no problems, so I assumed I would do the same for my home unit.
As my local service center replied, "those doors were never intended to come apart." And I agree, and certainly not in one piece. Anyone need a handle for a Whirlpool m/w?

The vent grill kept falling off because plastic tabs had broken off.

I got my 5 foot step-ladder and Phillips screw driver and removed two screws that were already there. I discarded the two metal clips because new metal clips are already inserted in the vent grill. I lined-up the vent grill on the microwave and screwed in the two screws. It's a perfect fit.

I'm a 62 year old woman, and if I can do it - anyone can. The vent grill arrived two days after I ordered it.

Vent Grille is plastic & keeps breaking

  • Customer: donna from Richardson, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

First I removed the two screws from the previous grille. When the part came-no screws were included. Second, the plastic hole that was pre-drilled was not open enough so I had to make it open so the screws would fit. Your part fit just great and we are defintely satisfied. I have had to replace this vent grille 2 times-don't think I will have to do this again. Thank you
