The vent grille simply went into place (door open) and I put in the two screws that hold it in place. For the two light fixtures, I had to remove five screws and let the hinged bottom plate on the underside of the microwave drop down. That provided access to both light fixtures. One screw to remove and each fixture (a socket really) unplugs and the new one goes in its place - along with a new lamp. It was fairly intuitive.

Very easy to replace the light socket. Unscrew screws under microwave to lower the base. remove screw at rear of light socket. Unplug power to socket. Plug wire into new socket. Replace new socket into base and replace serew. Hold base plate up to microwave and replace all screws. Do yourself a favor, if replacing one of the lights, go ahead and do both. Shipping cost is the same for 1 or 2 bulb sockets.

Used my hands, fitted coupler in place-it only fits one way, pushed until it snapped into place. I was unable to access the piece that broke off as it had fallen through the hole. I left it there. The turn table is now working as designed. This repair took less than five minutes. Buying the part, even with the shipping and handling, and replacing it myself was a much less expensive than buying a new microwave.

Installation of the damper was effortless but removing the microwave, cutting holes vertically through an overhead cabinet then installing ducting with a ninety degree bend, through another cabinet, and then through outside wall consumed most of the time and effort.Your service, packaging, and timely (next day!) were extremely helpful.

Fist I removed the 5 screws under the microwave. Then I dropped the panel and accessed the socket. I removed the socket by removing the one screw and disconnecting the wires. Replaced the wires on the new socket, installed the new bulb and reattached with the screw. replaced the panel with the 5 screws and I was done. Easy

Opened the microwave oven door, unscrewed two screws which held the control panel on, then I removed two of the door switches (each had two screws), and then used the continuity tester to see which one was not operating. It turned out to be the secondary door switch, replaced it and to my amazement, the microwave worked. I have never repaired an appliance before but I didn't want to replace our over-the-stove built in microwave. It was the best day ever when it was working again! The hardest part was getting myself to try the repair.

I stupidly called the appliance repairman to fix the vent grill, he quoted me 278 dollars to order part and install it. I said it's a plastic piece, I thought maybe 150 bucks to fix it. He said, the part is more than 150. I said no, and suddenly it dawned on me to look for the part myself, not sure why it took me this long to figure that out, anyways, I found the part on this site for 98 and dollars, screwed it in my self and voila! All fixed, I was so happy and so glad I told that guy NO! I will do what I can on my own from now on!

Watched How to repair a Microwave that turns on when the door is opened Video on the web. From this took a shot at the switch was the problem. When I removed the switch it was defective. The small button was in and when you turned the switch upside down the button would drop back into position. Ordered a switch for $25.oo , installed it and the microwave is working fine.
