Appearently, food splaters and cleaning corroded and/or removed the metalized film on original part, causing the arching (of ions, I think). Two plastic push pins are all that hold disk in place. Since microwave worked w/o part I decided to replace only the part (rather than the entire microwave). Push pins come apart easily and are re-used to secure new 9" disk. Simply pry gently under the round, broad, and flat pin head to release pin. Push pins are tiny and consist of two parts: a male center pin and a female grummet-like round part with a center hole. When the pin is seated it puts pressure in all directions (laterally) in the grummet. Because the disk is light weight, this is sufficient to hold disk in place.
Having a picture of the original part (cover-stir disk), on scaled gragh paper made it easy to calculate size and be assured that this was the correct part. Even Sears didn't have a clear drawing or photo of their replacement part. Kudos to PartsSelect. I much preferred buying a $50. part over $250. to replace and landfill the unit. Also, the name Cover-Stir (or Stir-Cover), relates to the part function with ventilation.

Dirty/Rusty Window

  • Customer: Geoff from COLUMBIA MO
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 21 of 29 people found this instruction helpful
The metal screen in the door of my microwave was rusting and making my "window" look nasty. I was able to take apart the door w/o removing the microwave, peel off the old plastic seal and clean the nasty parts of the glass door. The rust still remains and may be a future problem. But for now, the cleaning was what the door needed and applying the new film was a simple as putting stickers on a gift bag.

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.

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.

I first pulled off the vent cover above door of microwave and was originally just cleaning grease and dust around my built in microwave. i never even new tthere was afilter inside the vent cover. The cover comes off by unscrewing a couple of screws and tugging gently not to break anything else that may be attached. slide out the filter. order another through this fast delivery and you pretty much do the reverse to place it back in.

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.

Replaced the diode (aka wire-vltge) in the HV circuit after removing cabinet cover using both the secure torx screw drvr & phillips head screw drvr. The hardest part of the job was finding the secure torx nut drvr tool on the internet & purchasing same.
