A plastic tab, 1 of 3, on the plastic replacement vent grill had to be hand filed to make it fit in the slot on the microwave. The other 2 were fine. It is an obvious quality control issue from the manufacturer's injection mold or inspection process that allowed the extra plastic to remain on the tab.

This is an under the counter microwave. Simply removed the two screws holidng the vent grille on top of the unit, lift out the old charcoal filter, clean the vent fan exit surfaces then replace the filter and put the vent grille back. Be careful to not drop either of the two screws after one is installed as you will have to take the grill off and start the screw installation again unless you have a magnetic to retrieve the dropped screw. An easy five minutes at most to change.

Vent grille broken where it attached to unit

The filter was just a maintenance issue. The vent grille, as described on the website already, is poorly constructed; the plastic where the screws attach to hold it on break easily. I ended up using something similar to the plastic of a credit card to make a repair to the side that had broken. I ended up not installing the new grille, I thought I would see how the repair I made held up first. I kept the grille as a spare when the old one finally breaks. CAUTION: When you clean the grille, take it off first! The two spots where it attaches are cheaply made and will break easily. Take out the two screws, clean the grille, and then put it back into place. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE SCREWS! Tighten them just enough to hold it in place.
