CustomerRICK from CASEY, IL

Arm on door release button broke

First i removed the 3 phillips head screws from the back of the microwave,these hold the wrap around cover in place, then slid the wrap around cover off towards the back side of microwave, next from inside the microwave i removed 1 screw holding the front operating panel, this screw is located staight up from the push button towards the top of the microwave, I pulled the panel out enough to get the broken push button out, then i installed the new push button,then reinstalled the operating panel then the wrap around cover, very simple repair saved a lot of money by replacing the part rather than buying a new microwave.

Door release button broke on the inside of microwave so door would not open

Pryed face plate away from body and removed broken latch, replaced with new latch/release button (just sets in place) and pressed faceplate back into position. The beauty of all this is, I ordered this part on line, late on a Tuesday evening and had it in hand by Thursday afternoon!
Well done! Thank you!

Door release button

The part was delivered at 5 o'clock and by 5:30 the repair was done.

Remove 3 screws on the back. Remove the outer shell. Remove 1 screw behind the face plate and then lift off the front face plate (this does not have to be completely removed for repair.

Remove the broke part. I then cleaned the area to remove all grime.

The new part slids into place. At first I tried ti fit it between the support posts and realized that one post goes on the insid of part and the other outside.

Replace all pieces and your done.

CustomerBeth from Anacortes, WA

Broken door release lever/mechanism

First I had to remove the microwave from where it was mounted in a cabinet over the stove in the motorhome. Then I had to pry off the bottom part of the guard panel that surrounds the electronic face. Then the broken door release lever came out easily. It was easy to replace with the new one and then I tested it several time to make sure it worked correctly and it does. I then replaced the guard panel and returned the microwave back to it's cabinet in the motorhome. DONE
