The vent grille, used in microwaves, mounts on the top of the appliance and covers parts inside the microwave without blocking off airflow. Instead, the vent allows air to pass through the slats. If the vent is blocked or damaged, it is best to repair the vent grille. To repair, first remove the screw that holds the grill tabs with a Phillips screwdriver and clean the vent area. Next, install new grill into the appropriate tabs and make sure to secure the screws to prevent it from falling. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacture for installation instructions and accurate guidance. Remember to unplug appliance from power source.

Vent Grille

Part Number 391973

This white plastic vent grille mounts on the top of the microwave above the door, and covers components inside the microwave while allowing airflow through the slats. If the door on your microwave will not close properly, the vent grille could be at fault. If you notice that the vent grille is discolored, cracked, or broken, or if the mounting brackets on the grille are damaged or broken, you should replace the part. To replace the part, you will only need a Phillips head screw driver. Make sure this part is compatible with your microwave before ordering. This part does not include the screws used to mount it to your microwave.

Existing tabs on plastic vent grill had broken off

Removed screws holding the broken grill tabs with a phillips screwdriver
Removed broken grill and all broken tabs that fell into the vent area
Cleaned area where the new grill was to be placed
Inserted new grill onto the appropriate tabs and tightened the screws

BE CAREFUL as the tabs on the grill are thin and fragile when you insert the new grill don't force it into the slots, I used a knife as a way to slide the grill into place.

I had several broken appilances broken with parts to be replaced.

I had ordered the parts from Part Select and came with in a week. I ahd a Whrilpool microwave that had a door panel and vent grille that needed to be replaced and that was rplced with ease took less that five minutes to do. My Maytag refridgerator had it kickplate grille replace along with the pivot block that took all of about two minutes. The longest job that took about 5 minutes was my Whirlpool glass oven door that needed to be replaced, but that was pretty ease to replace also with an extra hand from my son. I just didn't want to break another glass door or I would have done it myself plus I was teaching him how to do self reparts.

The grill that was in place was sagging onto the microwave door

We visited our daughter and son-in-law for Thanksgiving. They asked if I could fasten it so it would stop sagging onto the microwave door. As I looked, I found the screw fasteners were both broken out and the grill was just resting in place. While Thanksgiving dinner was being completed I looked online, found the replacement part and ordered it. The amazing delivery... Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday. It only took a couple of minutes to get the step stool and screwdriver. Then I completed installing the replacement grill.

Plastic tabs broke and the grille fell off.

Removed the screws holding the broken tabs and thought the new vent grille would click right into place. I had quite a bit of trouble getting all the tabs lined up to click into place, but was finally able to do it. Then I just used the old screws to secure the new grille.
