First I removed upper front grill by removing two Philips head screws on top and pulling off. This exposed the Philips head screw which holds control panel in place. After removing screw I pushed up on panel and it came off to expose fuse. With needle nose pliers I removed old fuse and again with pliers held new fuse in position. With the help of a bladed screwdriver, I pushed new fuse into holder, then replaced panel, screw and grill. This took less than 15 minutes even as one of the wires on control panel pulled out of connection and took some time to locate where to reconnect, otherwise was an easy fix

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.

It was just a matter of setting the glass tray on the turntable in the microwave, so there is no story there. However, I am properly impressed with your service. I ordered the plate one day and had it the next. Outstanding!

I disconnected the power. Took off the front panel that was held together by two screws. Reviewed the schematic that was inside. Located the switches, saw which lead was burnt. Unscrewed the two screws that held the switch in place, cleaned the connector, and put the switch in and connectors back. Powered the device, tested for cooking/heating functionality. It worked, Closed the front panel

Removed 4 small star head screws from back of microwave, lifted body off, removed blown fuse and replaced with new one (found where cord enters). This model is stainless inside and out and I like it a lot. It is also sold by Daewoo and a few other manufacturers.

My son-in-law took the handle off. We saw the problem (Maytag put two tiny plastic posts that crack about once a year. This was the 2nd replacement in 2 years.) When the new part came in my 15 year old grandson put it on easily. This is a no-brainer!

Found info on how to replace handle here. Couldn't have done it without that information! We popped out the black trim on the inside of the door and removed the spring to access the bottom screw. From there it was pretty much easy to see where ever thing fit. Had difficulty getting the tabs clipped in the front of the door.

Door handle snapped off where screws attach

I pondered getting both the inside and outside parts but went with the outside only. Prying the gasket loose went very easily, and removing the latches went easy too (to expose the bottom screw. I found the inner handle base broken but glued it together, not worrying too much because the real attchment to the door is done with the outer handle screws. I can see why the handle broke in the first place because the screws went in with a lot of torque necessary. I suspect that this weakened the posts so I lubricated the screws and backed them in and out so as not to stress the posts. I think all that is necessary is the outer handle, if you want to save some money. Everything snapped back into place easily and it is done after listening to the wife complain for almost 6 months. Part Select is a great site for appliance repair.
