Cracked front panel and door handle

  • Customer: James from Cloverdale, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 20 of 31 people found this instruction helpful
Used flathead screwdriver around the interior edges of the front panel to pry off the front panel. The handle comes with it and along with a glass panel inside. Pry off that glass panel and transer it to the new front panel and pop it back in. I removed the two screws from the cracked handle and used them to install the handle to the new front panel. But, before this I added a couple of plastic washers to hopefully distribute the load better against the front panel and maybe prolong the life of the repair. I cleaned the interior glass, since that's hopefully the last we'll ever see of it. Take the whole assy and just snap it back in place on the door. This $100 in parts probably saved me $600-700 for a new microwave / over-oven install charge.

Cracks in the outer door

  • Customer: Larry from Wichita, KS
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 15 of 16 people found this instruction helpful
Had to remove three screws, and then had to figure out how to get the outer door off. I was a little concerned, because I didn't want to damage anything else, but it came off after a little prying.
The reassembly was very easy
thanks to parts like they have saved me a lot of money in the last three or four months.
I strongly recommend that if you need a part for an appliance contact them and I know they can help you. They are the easiest company I worked with
thank you very much Larry

Cracked Door Panel

  • Customer: Michael from Plantation, FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 14 of 15 people found this instruction helpful
It was a rather easy job. Estimated time :30.

1. Remove the old panel-remove the three screws on the side of the door. Using a putty knife, separate the panel from the door frame. There are built in plastic clips that will separate when you gently insert and lift the the putty knife.

2. Remove the glass insert-place the damaged door panel on a flat surface. Remove the inserted glass from the old panel by pulling back on the plastic clips. The plastic glass retainer will lift out permitting access to the glass. The glass lifts right out.

3. Remove the door handle-remove the two screws that hold it in place. It will come right out.

4. Install the handle-line up the holes with the new door panel and tighten the screws.

5. Install the glass and glass retainer-line up the glass first and then install the plastic glass retainer to keep it in place. Be careful not to break the plastic clips.

6 Install the door panel-align the door panel with the door starting at the top. Go around the door until the panel is in place. Insert and tighten the three screws on the side of the door. That's it, your done!

I found the part number for the mount on the appliances company website. Once I had that I visited a few sites looking for part. This site was easy to use and priced right, so I ordered. A few days later the product arrived as promised and worked perfectly for the install.

Instead of telling you, i have question do you have any instructions on how to do the repair. It would have helped save time on the repair.

This job took longer then it should have, becasue I did not start right in the begining. I did figure it out quickly after the wrong start.

You were a big help in picking the right part to correct the problem. You should be able to help with the repair. Thank You

Unit Turned Itself On And Went Nuts

  • Customer: MARK from ARROYO GRANDE, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy

I suspected the key pad,as I had a similar problem years ago. I removed the vent grill and the screw at the top of the keypad. Lifted the keypad slightly and tilted it downward, unplugged the keypad, and put the new one in place. The tricky part here is plugging in the new ribbon and ensuring its on the correct side of the contact block. A credit card made this a lot easier. The new keypad solved the problem and the rest of the family no longer thinks our house is haunted. Thanks --- m. S in a. G.

Microwave Turntable Won't Rotate

I turned off the power to the oven at the breaker. I then removed the side trim pieces by removing the screws located behind the lower oven door. I removed the plastic trim pieces above and below the microwave oven and removed the control panel and slid it into the opening above the microwave. I located the two screws securing the microwave into the frame and began sliding it out. I had to disconnect a small wiring harness and two wires from the microwave that were attached inside the opening above the microwave. The microwave section was the easily slid out, turned on it's side where the turntable motor was accessed by removing the access panel. I pulled the old motor, checked resistance and it matched the new motor. I then checked the old motor by applying 120V to it and it ran FINE! I thought I had the wrong part, but decided to install the new motor anyway. I did, secured the access panel and replaced the microwave in the frame. I reconnected the wires and secured the control panel and tested the microwave...and the turntable works!

My husband unscrewed the three screws on the end of the door, popped the exterior door off and removed the old door handle to save the screws. He then attached the new handle to the new exterior door. He snapped it into place and replaced the 3 screws at the end of the door! NOW IT IS JUST LIKE NEW! Just a matter of minutes.

Just pry the cover off with a screw driver or other flat tool. Scrape offf the old silicone. There are two covers in the Kit. you just need 1. Remove the old clips for the roof of the microwave, put a bead of silicone on the new cover where the old was and secure the new cover with the push pins into the clips .

This is not easy to do. I done it before to replace a broken window and it was a real bitch. I considered buying a new door rather then do it again.All I wanted to do was tighten two screws that hold the handle.
I used the advice found on your web site from a person who did it using quarters and putty knifes to remove the choke and the door insert. Sounded silly but it works like a charm. I advise anyone who needs to do this repair to use that info on your web site. It will save lots of frustration. Be sure to have plenty of quarters and a few pennies.

cracked panel door cover

Very easy and fast. I wished that I could just replace the panel door instead of cleaning it everytime. It was easier and quicker to replace the door than it was to clean it.

Vent cover/grill had broken

The old grill had already been removed so the new one fit right in and it was only a matter of tightening the 2 screws to hold the new one in place. Simple. Looks great. No one will ever know it was broken.

display would show "Inch" and run thru 7,9,12 then start on its own. Also sometimes displayed "F2"

UNPLUGGED IT
Remove 2 screws on top of the unit holding the grille in- remove the grille
Remove the one screw at the top of the display and tilt the top of the display towards you.
At the bottom is a hinge that slides up to be removed- leave the screw in place.
The conector for the keypad is a ribbon connector that is attached to a black connector about 2/3 of the way up the circuit board- to release the ribbon cable the highest end of the connector has a plastic release clip that you can bend with your fingernail allowing the long edge of the connector topivot about the (lower) hinged end. Not hard to do just don't force it.
Do not remove any wires-remove the screws holding the circuit board on (2 I think) at the bottom.
The top of the circuit board is held in by sheet metal features in the housing- mine were a bit tough but its obvious how to remove it.
The keypad/exterior sheet metal & display assembly should be free now- support and place display up on a work surface.
To remove the current keypad CAREFULLY pry around the edge/junction of the ext sheet metal and the keypad. The keypad is held on with adhesive and will require some effort. Also the keypad extends slightly under the ext shett metal so it will be a pain. the goal is to start it peeling w/o damaging the sheet metal around it.
To remove the remaining adhesive (& paper) use denatured alcohol.
The new keypad is made to go under the ext sheet metal but it isn't possible to install it this way. I trimmed the edges of the new keypad so that it would drop in. You only get one try installing the keypad so make sure it fits before putting it in with the adhesive exposed.
YOU MADE IT!! Is Fixed !!
