broken door handle

  • Customer: ED from Santa Clarita, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 8 of 9 people found this instruction helpful
First i pick up all the tools that I thought would be needed for the door handle replacement. I looked at the exploded diagram online, but did not know how to remove the inside panel to expose the handle mounting screws? I did not want to break any more plastic parts by pulling to hard on the old weaken parts. I have 30 years experience repairing office and banking equipment but never took a microwave apart.. Next I read two reviews by two different women explaining how easy it was to take off the inside panel with a butter knife---yes a butter knife. The knife worked great and I never would have used a knife. Everything just unsnapped from there on. Thank You to those women.

After finding the part on PartSelect, ordering it online, receiving it quicker than expected -- it took me 5 minutes to unscrew the bottom cover of the microwave, take off the old motor, replace with the new motor, screw the cover back on and test the WORKING cooking tray drive motor.
Very impressed with the efficiency of PartSelect. It's web page was easy to navigate. Thanks.

When opening door, the microwave would turn on

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 8 of 9 people found this instruction helpful
I've been fixing and taking things apart since I was a kid. I hoped that it was a bad switch in the door. Got out my test meter and check the 3 different switches. All 3 tested good, but one was a bit hit and miss. It would work if the microwave was on its side and wouldn't when it was set flat. I found the switch online and installed it. Took care of the problem.It was a whole lot cheaper than buying a new microwave. Thanks! Bill Brown, Fridley, MN

All electrical worked (fan, lights, control panel) door switch was broke. Pulled the oven out. Took out two big screws from the cabinet above. (be careful not to drop oven)Set the oven on kitchen counter. Took off five screws that held the vent cover. Removed vent cover. Took out one screw that held the control panel. Lifted, turned and slid the panel into the space below so I could get to the upper door switch. Replace door switch and re-assemble.

Removed the 1 inch plastic frame on inside of door, gave me access to 1 set of screws. The problem I encountered was, getting to the set that holds the handle to the door.I didn't realize the metal frame held the outside with flexible hooks, therefore once u snapped them off, the outside with the handle on it HIT the floor glass and all!
Fortunately it didn't break. Supporting the outside is most important.

I removed both sockets from the microwave and when your part arrived, I installed them both including the new lights. The work perfectly and it was very easy to put them in. I also appreciate the speed of delivery and your concern for my feed back on the product. I have you number in my contact list and should I need another part, I'll check with your first.
thanks you

The replacement of the light no problem, the reason the light broke; problem. The original was glued in (for transport i think) and simply trying to unscrew it out (in a very tight slot) it broke; be careful or you’ll be buying a new $20 bulb (with shipping and handling).

Light Socket replacement

  • Customer: Jill from Arlington, TN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 6 of 7 people found this instruction helpful
I was told by 2 different appliance technicians that the crumbled/melted light socket could not be replaced which meant replacing the entire microwave (expensive!). Other posters on your sight described the repair steps and I gave it a try. The hardest part was probably figuring out which switch in the fuse box belonged to it (now marked clearly). It was a simple matter of unscrewing the bottom panel of the microwave to access the socket, pulling the crumbled/melted unit off and shoving the new one on. I can't believe the repairmen didn't want any part of even giving it a try.

Turntable no longer went around

  • Customer: Kent from Mesa, AZ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I followed the instructions provided by others on-line who had done a similar repair. I removed a handful of screws, disconnected the wires from the old drive motor and connected them to the new drive, replaced the screws that held the drive motor in place, and those that held the bottom housing in place, and I was done. Literally took less than 10 minutes. If I had known earlier how easy it was, the microwave would have been fixed much earlier.
