Old rotary-timer microwave. Model number worn off. Unplug and discharge capacitor voltage. Remove 3 Phillips screws to slide-back, and off the sheet metal cover. Remove front, control panel retaining screw (inside, top of control panel frame) with small socket (8 mm?). Lift up and pull out panel clearing retaining plastic tabs. No need to disconnect wiring. Wiggle new button in place with pivot tabs resting in the mounting slots. Check door action before reassembling and returning to service. Local parts supply estimated 10 days to order part. Ordered from PS Friday night...received Monday. Great service!
