Not too bad

Our Microwave Vent Grill was broken - and since I was ordering online, I figured I'd get the two filters as well. The Vent Grill was fairly easy to install. It was a little tricky getting it to fit in, but once in, it was just a matter of screwing in at the top.

The Filters were another matter. The FILTR-GRSE came out very easy, but what I didn't realize was when I ordered it, it only came in packs of 1. The Charcoal Air Filter came in packs of 2, so I assumed both did. Why, when you need two of each of these, do they sell one in single packages - and the other in packs of two? The Charcoal Air Filters were only replaceable by unscrewing the bottom of the microwave. The FILTR-GRSE were easy enough to just pop out.

Overall, not that bad of an install.

CustomerRoland from Plantation FL

The top front grille screwed in tabs had cracked

The trick is to align the bottom and top tabs first. This take a little coaxing and patience, but once these snap in, the tabs with the threads line up perfectly.

TIP: Thread the screws into the metal tabs while supporting the tabs with your hand BEFORE installing the grille, back them out, and then install. The threads were a little tight, and putting a lot of pressure on them while the tabs are in the slots risks breaking them off.

CustomerRichard from Edmond OK

Microwave vent cover was broken

Repair part delivered only a few days after purchasing on-line. The replacement part was the exact same as that on the original unit. Installation took about 1 minute involving 2 screws. Ordering was very easy.

This is a highly recommended parts store.

CustomerFrank from Templeton CA

Broken vent grill and cracked door panel

Vent Grill - Remove 2 screws on top to the far left and far right and pull out the grill. When installing the new grill, insert the bottom 2 tabs in their slots and then firmly but gently push down on the top of the grill to snap it in place, being very careful not to break the plastic tabs on top. Reinsert the top screws.

Door Panel - Remove 3 screws on the outside edge of the door where the latch is. Snap off the door panel by pulling away the outer edges, being very careful that the glass pane which is only glued to the door panel does not come loose and fall out. Unscrew and remove the door handle. Remove the glass pane by scraping off the silicon glue. A razor is handy for removing any residue. Reattach the glass pane to the new door panel, making sure that the Whirlpool logo is facing the right way. You may need to slightly flex the plastic mounting tabs that hold the glass pane. Apply silicon glue to secure it in place. After the glue dries, screw on the door handle and snap the door panel on the door by gently flexing the outer edges and pushing it in place. Reinsert the 3 screws on the outside edge of the door.

General Comments - Both of these parts have flimsy plastic tabs to hold things in place and unfortunately, because they fit rather snugly, you need to apply just enough force to snap them in place without breaking them. Also, do not tighten any of the screws too much as this can break the plastic or cause stress fractures later. It's an easy installation but you just need to be careful not to break anything.

Broken microwave vent

The old vent slipped right off because the tabs holding the screws were broken. It took just a few minutes to screw in the new vent. Also, I want to add that I only ordered the part on Friday and it arrived Saturday morning. I wish all repairs were this simple!

Needed to replace the front vent cover

I didn't have to remove the old cover since it cracked and fell off the microwave already. I simply snapped in the new vent cover, screwed in the 2 screws and I was done. Super easy.

CustomerCynthia from Oceanside CA

I broke the grill b/c I thought it snapped on and off, not.

I removed the two screws and took off the old grill. Snapped the new grill in place and replaced the screws. This model was not shown on the list but the part fit just fine. The part arrived in 2 days! I ordered the white one and at first didn't think it matched .. maybe my microwave was bisque or almond .. but after 15 minutes of scrubbing I realized it was white but just real dirty .. lol. Now the door opens without the grill falling off. Easy fix.

Part wasn't correct

The first part I had to send back because it wouldn't fit. You made it easy to return the wrong part. The replacement part also wasn't correct. I was able to modify it to work. Cut off the not needed tabs and screwed in. Thanks for having something that would work.

The tabs for the screws completly crumbled

I removed the two screws, removed the broken grill, popped in the new grill (after I ordered the correct color, did not get the biscuit color I thought I had ordered the first time) replaced the two screws....I was good to go. Strange that the tabs in the first place just fell apart...but reading others, find this seems to be a common problem. Simple as pie.
