I took the old one out and put the new one in. I want to take this time to tell you that I have repaired a few of my appliances with very little difficulty and a much lower price than Kitchen Aid charges. One was a Micrwave vent, knobs on a stove top, little rubber knobs on the bottom of a grate of my cook top which was triple the cost from what I paid to Parts Select and the water seal on a dishwasher. Thing wear out and need to replaced; however most of these things can be repaired by the consumer.

I actually followed one of your previous buyers who had the same issue as I. Replacing the grille vent is easy. The door was just a little harder as I wanted to make sure I did not break the glass. Unscrewed and popped off the old pane and snapped the new one in place and put the screws back in. On a side note your site was very easy to use and easy to find the parts I needed quickly.

First -- and this was the key to success -- I watched a couple of Youtube videos on "Replacing a microwave door handle". As one video suggested, I placed a large towel underneath where I was working (over the stovetop) to catch any falling parts but this proved unnecessary. Once I removed the two screws from the end of the door, the inside of the door pried off easily with a screwdriver. It did want to drop quickly though, so be ready to hang onto it. The handle was attached with two screws (which I reused, no problem). It took a few minutes to re-insert the inside of the door into the frame, but once that's done, you just re-install the two end screws and you're finished.

My old handle broke and I needed a new one.

Don't order the two screws. They are common screws you probably have in your garage.

After unhinging the microwave door, be carefeul taking the door apart. Do it over a kitchen counter covered by a towel padding. It came apart suddenly and half of it fell on the floor, but didn't break.

replace charcoal filters and grease screens and clean top exit ports

Removed old grease screens by sliding sideways and then pulling out of the grooves. (helps to have rubber gloves as the grease is slippery). Put pressure on the back of the charcoal filter rim and allow side closest to you to drop down slightly so you can get a fine flatblade screwdriver under and pop the filter out of the holder. Works same on both sides. Install new charcoal filters after cleaning the holder edges with soap and water and drying. Make sure charcoal filter is in the second set of holder grooves and snap in place. Replace new grease filters with the pull tabs down and facing the center. Slide the grease filter into the holder grooves a little further back than normal and (using the pull tabs) pull the filter back the other way until flush with the opening and in place. The top exit ports are removed by taking out 4 screws;however, two of them are attached to spring clips on the underside and it is easy to break off the tiny plastic ridges underneath. The other screws come out easily and the entire exit port piece can be removed and cleaned. To reinstall just snap exit port back in place and replace screws. If you have broken off the slender plastic ridges you can sometimes turn the screww a partial turn and engage what is left; if not you may have to put some rubber grommets or pieces to support the bottom and keep pressure on the exit port piece which is not locked by only two screws.

PartSelect had the turntable I needed at the best price. Ordering was easy, but best of all, the part was delivered next day. I was able to insert the new turntable plate into the microwave and it was good as new.

Vent Grille is plastic & keeps breaking

First I removed the two screws from the previous grille. When the part came-no screws were included. Second, the plastic hole that was pre-drilled was not open enough so I had to make it open so the screws would fit. Your part fit just great and we are defintely satisfied. I have had to replace this vent grille 2 times-don't think I will have to do this again. Thank you

The vent grill kept falling off because plastic tabs had broken off.

I got my 5 foot step-ladder and Phillips screw driver and removed two screws that were already there. I discarded the two metal clips because new metal clips are already inserted in the vent grill. I lined-up the vent grill on the microwave and screwed in the two screws. It's a perfect fit.

I'm a 62 year old woman, and if I can do it - anyone can. The vent grill arrived two days after I ordered it.
