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.
