DAMPER ASSEMBLY

This is an exhaust damper assembly for a microwave, which is also known as a microwave vent damper.

You will need to uninstall your microwave from the wall to access the exhaust damper. Once you have gained access to the damper, simply slide the old part out, and slide the replacement part in. This is an OEM replacement part that is sourced directly from the genuine manufacturer.

I first removed the top plate above the microwave door (3 screws), then I removed the plate containing the buttons and clock. The microwave has 3 relay switches and they are in a little holder.
