Charcoal Filter

PartSelect Number PS1957304

The charcoal filter, used in microwaves, removes food odors from the air. If your filter is damaged or you notice strong odors coming from your microwave, it is best to replace it. This part is metallic and measures about 12 inches wide and 6 inches deep. The tool required for this repair is a Phillips screwdriver. First, remove screws at the top of microwave to access the filter. Next, remove the old filter and insert new filter by pushing it all the way back, so the edges connect to the two tabs. The front edge of the filter should rest at the bottom of the cavity. Do not forget to replace the grill after installing new filter. Remember to unplug your microwave from the power source before installation process.

Fire in microwave melted several parts

Remove the filters and use a Torx driver to remove two screws holding the motor. The wires on on the motor are held in place by a plastic clamp that must be pried open on one side. That's all it takes to replace the drive motor. Everything else that makes the turntable spin lifts off from inside the microwave.
