Removed the screws holding the broken tabs and thought the new vent grille would click right into place. I had quite a bit of trouble getting all the tabs lined up to click into place, but was finally able to do it. Then I just used the old screws to secure the new grille.

The vent grille became lose and was falling off from the position each time we open the microwave.

I have been doing repair on things on my own for years, I am a retired prevenative maintenace supervisor.
While cleaning the microwave vent grill from being old it fell apart, so I ordered the part using the internet to find the a company that has the same part, the part didnt take long before I recieved it. It didnt take five minutes to install it, and it saved me cash in the pocket from someone else to do the work. wallen

Used hands to slide filters sideways, till they could be pried out with screwdriver or bare hands. When new parts arrived, easily slide new filters into position. In hindsight, we did not need to replace grease filter. I was able to clean one of those with ordinary dish soap, warm water, and a brush.

Simply removed two screws to remove the old vent grille and replaced it with the new grille. I was also very pleased with the assistance I received from the service rep. I had ordered the wrong grille. I called the PartSelect help number and the rep walked me through the product return process, then found the correct part and ordered it. I had the replace 3 - 4 days later. The rep was very polite and patient during the whole process.

I, carefully, inserted the bottom tabs into the appropriate slots. I then rotated the vent piece up and into place under the top lip of the Microwave. Once positioned I installed the screws required to hold the piece in place. Very simple replacement. It gave me a chance to clean the grease behind the vent.

We visited our daughter and son-in-law for Thanksgiving. They asked if I could fasten it so it would stop sagging onto the microwave door. As I looked, I found the screw fasteners were both broken out and the grill was just resting in place. While Thanksgiving dinner was being completed I looked online, found the replacement part and ordered it. The amazing delivery... Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday. It only took a couple of minutes to get the step stool and screwdriver. Then I completed installing the replacement grill.
