I had been dealing with a broken vent cover and burned out light for several months. I should have fixed it much sooner if I knew how easy it was. PartSelect.com had pictures of everything I needed and after reading the repair stories I was able to disassemble the pieces necessary and clean them before reinstalling. Very fast shipping also. The vent grille attaches easily with a couple screws. It's weakest point is the plastic tabs which will break and then gravity puts the grill in the doors ways. The light bulbs can be accessed with a hinged glass door (one screw) but be careful they are very fragil and can break off. If they do unplug your unit, get a pair of needle nose pliers and slowly unscrew the rest of the bulb. If you wanting room or you want to clean the grease off, I recommend removing the whole bottom cover from the microwave (7 scews and 2 wire harness clips).

The pastic vent grill above the built-in microwave was broken.

Loosened but did not remove screws that held up microwave over range,removed grill on top by loosening screws that held grill in place.removed small mesh grill on right side of microwave, this gave me access to capacitor ,diode is connected from one lead of capacitor to a metal plate ground,Disccarged capacitor to ground by shorting terminals to ground using a thick insulated screwdriver.Since the diode was screwed to the top of the metal plate I cut it out with a pair of side cutters .I then connected the new diode to the capacitor with my long nose pliers and groonded the other end to a more accessible part of the metal grounding plate.I then replaced all parts in reverse order.Works like a charm.

Unplug the microwave. Then remove the six screws that hold the lower panel which has the light bulb cover and a couple of vent filters. The light bulb sockets are on a fixture that is connected by a quick connect electrical connector. Disconnect that and the whole panel is free to access the bulbs. My bulbs were very fragile and trying to twist them out resulted in the glass twisitng loose with the base still in the sockets. I needed to use a needle nose pliers to remove the bases and then I replaced the bulbs and put every thing back together

With a phillips head screwdriver I removed the screws, which were screwed to the then non-existent grille, at the top of the grille holder, GENTLY popped the new grill into place and replaced the screws. It took about five minutes. As a housewife, I feel that doing these little repair jobs around the house saves my husband time and aggravation. It was all very simple, and I got the ordered part in two days. Fabulous!

After removing the over-the-range unit (no small feat!) I had to figure out how to open the case (good puzzle!). Capacitor had already discharged, so it was very easy to reach in, pop the old fuse and install the new one! As per your advice, I found out I was a "28%-er"! Upon re-installation, the microwave "sprang to life"!! Thanks, "Part Select"!! I was already shopping around for a new machine! (Now if you could only tell me an easier way to re-mount this heavy beast over the stove!!!)

The opening was very tight

It was supposed to be a very easy replacement, but when inserted the legs in the bottom openings, the legs at the top didn't enter the opening.If insert first the top legs then the bottom legs could not go in. Tried to put a little force when turning grill to enter the top legs with the screws support. Finally very carefully put first the top legs, entering horizontally, and then giving a little push (forcing) the bottom legs in. This was not supposed to be this way, because I could had brake the bottom legs clip.

The lady in the Nova Scotia call center should get all the credit for being able to identify the part I needed from only the very limited information I was able to give her. Employee of the month for her. She also had such a great can do attitude. Lawence Baier

Cracked handle

Well, to get to the screws for the handle, the door "choke" had to be removed, which was difficult, until I read that you need a putty knife. But I had already tried to take the old one off, and it was brittle & cracked, so I also had to purchase the "choke"/frame. Once the parts arrived (within 3 days!), installing them was easy, but then I had a problem with the door. It wouldn't shut correctly, which made the microwave shut off intermittently during use. So I had to determine which of the latch catches had the sensor. (It was the top one.) I tried adjusting it without any disassembly, but it fell out & down inside the oven. So I figured out how to get that part of the oven open. I had to remove the upper grill and the touch panel. Once those were out, it was easy to retrieve the latch catch & install it correctly. I reassembled the oven, and now everything works fine. This oven was manufactured for Sears by Whirlpool over-14 years ago, and has been very reliable, so I'm not complaining. Interestingly, I looked at new microwaves and found a Maytag model (also made by Whirlpool) almost identical to the one I have. I examined it and found that the door, touch panel and grill are almost identical and use the same parts as mine!
