I first removed the top plate above the microwave door (3 screws), then I removed the plate containing the buttons and clock. The microwave has 3 relay switches and they are in a little holder. The holder was too difficult to remove so I just removed the bottom switch and replaced. The microwave started right up.

Replaced clock control by removing surface burner control knobs and plastic nuts, and then the cover over the oven control. Two screw hold the clock in place, after removal and disconnecting the plug-in you can reinstall the new clock control. The Heat Sensor inside the oven will also need to be replaced. It is located inside the oven and attached with two screws; the back of the oven will need to be removed to unplug. Reverse removal procedure and turn the power back on to the stove.

Broil element wasn't working...

  • Customer: Kevin from Alexandria VA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

I pulled my unit out of the wall and noticed that the insulation around the top broiler element was a bit brown. Closer inspection revealed that the element had shorted somehow to the oven itself and caused the element to become non-functional. I tried measuring the resistance first, and it was within typical values for the other elements, but I decided to replace the element anyway.

I ordered from PD and the part arrived just a few days letter by regular shipping. I undid the screws holding in the element, undid the wire connectors and replaced the broken element with the new one. The element worked like a charm and I was back in business for cooking.

Cracked oven door inner glass

Repair was quite easy, as long as you have the instructions for removing the door. The screws that hold the bottom of the door to the fixed hinge are placed into the side of the hinge assembly after removal; this holds the door at a 45 degree angle for easy removal. After that, just place the door on a flat surface and dismantle the door from the inside. The inner glass is contained in a metal frame with another piece of glass; this frame comes apart easily using the clips in each side. The door assembles easily after the glass is replaced; just take your time and give yourself enough room to lay out the parts as you go. Good luck!

was told buy a repair person to check the door micro switches as it was a common problem. removed the top plastic air grill to get access to the screw that holds in place the control cover. After unplugging the unit, i took out the (2) screws that held in the switches and removed them (3). One switch was a bit melted so i tested it with a 12 volt battery and it was bad. Ordered a new one from Part select and got it fast . Works great .

After unplugging the unit remove the control face buy removing the screws. All three door switchs are on a bracket on the left. Remove the two screws holding the bracket in place and pull out. Disconnect the wires from the three switches and test each switch indivually to determine the bad one. I used a multimeter set on ohms.Replace the bad switch with the new one and replace all the wires. Reassemble the unit and you are good to go.

I ordered the part based on the parts list provided. The part arrived by mail 2 days after I submitted my order by email. True to the word in their website, they mailed the item the same day I placed the order.

It took approximately 20 minutes to remove the damaged hinge and replace the new one. No problems at all and I was extremely pleased with the rapid arrival of my order. I had studied the door and the hinge placement in advance and knew exactly what was needed. The only tool I used was a screwdriver. I removed the plate on the side of the door...lifted out the damaged hinge...replaced it with the new hinge...replaced the plate covering the hinge parts and replaced the door on the oven. An easy fix....

The hinges were worn out and the door would not close.

I removed the door with instructions from the owners manual, printed out the door parts diagram from your web site to determine how to take door apart to replace old hinges with the new ones, what took long was cleaning the door glass surfaces while I had the door apart being carful not to break the glass, do not use a green pad to clean the dirty film from cooking on the glass surfaces I did and it left scratches on the glass. I used alot of common sense and reversed the takeing the door apart process to put is back together.

Had to reference original owner's manual for instruction(s) on how to remove oven door. Used several "YouTube" videos to reference oven door design (Oven door glass is actually several layers of glass.) After completing about 30 mins of research and finding the right square drive bit, the repair went smoothly and without complications. The biggest challenge was researching and understanding what part(s) were needed and how to replace them. It seemed liked a lot of work doing the research however it sure beat a $350 repair bill. It cost me $90 and about 1 1/2 hours of total time. Oven works better than ever, thanks parts select for the part(s) and diagram(s) ...

Microwave would not turn on

To determine which switch was bad, I removed all three switches from microwave. I used a D-cell battery taping two pieces of wire to the POS and NEG ends. Tape the POS end of wire to a flashlight bulb's bottom tip. Tape or twist the NEG end to the bottom of the switch. Connect another piece of wire to the top of switch and touch the side of the flashlight bulb with the other end of the wire; the bulb should come on. Depress the red button on the switch and the light should go out. The switch is good if this occurs. If light does not come on or the bulb does not got out once the red button is depressed, the switch is bad. Now you have determined which switch to order for replacement.

sparking from wave guide cover

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Disconnected the power cord, removed the outer cover, shorted the two terminals of the high voltage capacitor with the blade of a screw driver with well insulated handle (very important to prevent a bad shock!!),;removed the plastic fan housing for access to the grounding screw and capacitor housing, installed the new capacitor with the reverse of the above steps (but don't reconnect the power cord yet!!}
Now, the most important step of all, reach inside the oven and remove the mica wave guide cover, clean the oven walls thoroughly and clean the inside of the wave guide with clean cloth and water, sand to bare metal any carburized spots on the exit of the wave guide, cut out any carburized spots on the mica cover, replace the clean cover , or order a new one if necessary. It is OK to use the microwave without the cover while waiting for shipment of the replacement mica cover, but be absolutely sure there will be no food spatters on or near the wave guide opening.
