Remove top grille (2 screws), undo control panel (1 screw). Tilt down control panel, switches are on the left. There are actually three switches that are involved with the door, two horizontally mounted, one vertically mounted. This would be an EASY REPAIR, but it took me a while to figure out which of the three switches was bad, and also took a while to figure out that there is a plastic rod that inserts through the hole in the switch body. Once i figured this out went like a breeze. Lower horizontal switch was the bad one, but since the kit came with two switches i went ahead and replaced the upper horizontal one as well. IT appears that the horizontal switches are probably more likely to fail than the vertical switch based on the position of the switch and force angles. Works great now!

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.

I removed the plugs that hide the screws and tried unscrewing the screws. I did not realize that there is a hollow space and so when I unscrewed the screws it fell in between the microwave door . Had to go hunting for another screw and got it fixed. So please be careful to not drop the screw inbetween the panes.
It is a simple job and Good luck

There are two screws needed to mount the handle. The replacement handle came without hardware. The screws from the old handle are too long and don't tighten into the new handle.

It was just a matter of removing the broken parts which was held by two screws and snapped the seal around the glass to get easy access.

I just want to add that your site made part selection a breeze.Due to the age of my Mic the parts were no longer available from Sears or anywhere else.Your site post exact measurements of the parts so I was able to get a generic part that fit perfectly!

Called parts select and discussed the situation and they identified the correct replacement shelf. When I received it, I just pushed it into place (the edges of the shelf are coated with a rubber seal) and it is there. The unit looks like new. It was great to be able to find a part for an appliance from 1988!

Problem would come and go. Found service schematic inside unit. Perform all the suggested tests. One possible solution was the primary interlock switch shown on the schematic and a check found the switch stuck. It would free up some times but would stick again in the open position. Ordered switch which was a simple plug in unit.

1. Removed cabinet screws (10-15?). 2. Removed cabinet. 3. Removed top interlock switch which actually was not defective. The press clip connection appeared as if it had been arcing for quite some time and the corrosion created resistance sufficient to prevent the current from getting through the switch. 4. Replaced switch anyway but broke plastic retaining clip despite every effort not to do so. Reset broken clip with super glue. 5. Reassembled cabinet and appliance is in good working condition.

First removed the inner trim "ring" (actually rectangular) from the inside of the door. Popped out with a slot-head screwdriver and fingers. Then removed what was left of the original handle with a Phillips screwdriver and vice grips. Saved the mounting screws (two). Mounted the new handle with the screws, replaced the inner trim, and pressed in the trim plate on the handle. Took about 5 minutes in all.
