This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Remove 4 screws holding plastic vent between microwave and oven. Take off plastic vent. Remove two metal clamps at bottom of stainless panel (one screw on each clamp). Open door, remove two screws (recessed) at top of door that hold stainless panel (careful as panel is only connected by these screws and is heavy and door will spring shut without the weight of the panel...even with only one good spring) and put stainless door panel aside.From bottom of door, remove two screws holding black plastic panel and put plastic panel aside. You should see the broken spring- remove it and replace with new spring. Note - hook the "lower" half of spring (the end with the U hook) first, then wedge/slide the other end until it hooks into slot.Put parts back together in reverse order.

Found a way to remove screw. Proceeded to insert new spring and tried to assemble but had same problem to put screw back in. No normal tool was able to fit in and could not remove vent. Finally able to engage screw and finished reassembly.
Used the instructions I wrote up the last time. Printed them off, and still works like a charm.This makes third time the spring has broken - last two times it has been the right side spring. Not the best designed microwave door. But at least with PartSelect having the part, and with PartSelect keeping my original instructions on the website, the repair is easy.
I followed the instructions that were posted for a do-it-yourself on the part. The instructions were spot on. One addition that I have to the online instructions is that I have a wall mounted microwave and had to remove the trim before starting the instructions. Additional instructions for wall mount are:1. Remove one screw each side from inside the door to loosen the vertical trim.2. Remove the vertical trim on each side.3. Remove the 2 screws holding the bottom trim and remove the trim.4, Follow the remaining instructions
