Following the instructions from prior PartSelect folks for this part (thank you for great instructions), I removed the door from the microwave (first had to remove the fan vent grill above the door (2 Phillips screws), then I carefully removed the back plastic door frame using the thin puddy knife to carefully pop it off. Removed the first 2 screws on that are visible. Removed the inner door frame (was the most difficult part of the process to do without breaking the front panel frame) to expose the inner 2 screws. On our microwave, the front panel was also cracked, so I removed and replaced it (very simple), attached the new handle to the front panel with the inner screws (Phillips 2) and then popped the inner door back in, screwed in the last 2 screws and attached the back plastic door frame. Reattached the vent fan cover and the door. A bit more complicated than originally thought, but overall not bad. Charlie C

PartSelect had helpful repair instructions on-line which made the repair easier and faster. Unfortunately, there were other problems with the oven that immediately blew the new fuse I had just installed. It was then determined that additional repair would most likely cost almost as much as a new microwave.

Because the microwave is old and the bulbs, I believe, had never been changed I carefully tried to unscrew the bulb. However, when I went to unscrew the bulbs the end of the bulb broke off and remained in the socket. I used a few different tools then remembered that sometimes a raw potatoe can be used to unscrew the remainder of the bulb, but to no avail. Finally had to unscrew the whole underside of the microwave to remove the broken bulb. May I suggest that you have the socket face away from the wall to screw in the bulb instead of the socket pointing toward the wall. You need to know yoga just to manuver the bulb into the socket.

We were remodeling our kitchen and installing new custom Kraftmade cabinets. The microwave had to be removed to install the new cabinet above the stove, during the process of taking the microwave down we forgot to take the inside pieces out of the unit, the door popped open and the tray fell on the floor and broke. I ordered a new one, by the time the cabinets were in the tray was here and we reinstalled the microwave.

Removed 5 screws from the bottom of the over the range microwave to expose the light sockets. Removed the 1 screw holding the socket, disconnected the wires. Attached the wires to the new socket, Put in the bulb, reattached it with the screw. Repeated on the other light... It took about 20 minutes and now the lights work just like they should :)

Difficulty in removing front panel

The inside door trim is easily removed by inserting the handle of a small spoon at the space at the door hinge and then sliding it alone to top to remove the plastic clips. The outside door panel is more intense. You will be able to see the plastic clips that hold the plastic panel to the door and will be able to force the clips away from the metal door frame. However there are locating pins that stick through the metal door. These may have swollen because of heat, use long nose pliers to squeeze and push through the metal door, May take 2 people, 1 to release the clips the other to push the locating pins through the metal frame. With the front pane off there are 4 screws that hold the handle to the front panel.

The order was easy and promptly received. I lowered the cover by removing retainer screws underneath. Simply lowered it and removed the broken glass and replaced it. The bulb was broken and the base of it was stuck in the socket. I didn't bother to remove it because the socket was brittle. I disconnected the socket by unplugging the wires, removing the retainer screws,and removing it. I replaced it with the new one. Screwed in the bulb. I replaced the cover and it was done. Ps: I used an Hitachi cordless screwdriver, which greatly helped when doing this alone.

rotiserre plate stopped turning after fire mishap

  • Customer: Kevin from Ft Thomas KY

after one of the kids set the time to 10min instead of a minute for quik mac & cheese, the extreme heat from the small, yet intense fire melted the shaft of the motor drive and also melted the plastic coupling that goes between the motor and the glass plate. With a pwr screw driver it took maybe 10 min. The coupling slides upward inside the microwave itself. This type microwave is also a range hood. There are 5 screws that hold the bottom panel on,(which also holds the charcoal filter for the vent fan. After removing the 5 screws remove 2 elec. connectors allowing you to set the panel aside. The motor has 2 screws and thats it. Swap motor & reinstall panel and coupling then check operation.
