I took the old one out and put the new one in. I want to take this time to tell you that I have repaired a few of my appliances with very little difficulty and a much lower price than Kitchen Aid charges. One was a Micrwave vent, knobs on a stove top, little rubber knobs on the bottom of a grate of my cook top which was triple the cost from what I paid to Parts Select and the water seal on a dishwasher. Thing wear out and need to replaced; however most of these things can be repaired by the consumer.

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.

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.

replace charcoal filters and grease screens and clean top exit ports

  • Customer: Frederick from Three Rivers, MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 208 of 410 people found this instruction helpful
Removed old grease screens by sliding sideways and then pulling out of the grooves. (helps to have rubber gloves as the grease is slippery). Put pressure on the back of the charcoal filter rim and allow side closest to you to drop down slightly so you can get a fine flatblade screwdriver under and pop the filter out of the holder. Works same on both sides. Install new charcoal filters after cleaning the holder edges with soap and water and drying. Make sure charcoal filter is in the second set of holder grooves and snap in place. Replace new grease filters with the pull tabs down and facing the center. Slide the grease filter into the holder grooves a little further back than normal and (using the pull tabs) pull the filter back the other way until flush with the opening and in place. The top exit ports are removed by taking out 4 screws;however, two of them are attached to spring clips on the underside and it is easy to break off the tiny plastic ridges underneath. The other screws come out easily and the entire exit port piece can be removed and cleaned. To reinstall just snap exit port back in place and replace screws. If you have broken off the slender plastic ridges you can sometimes turn the screww a partial turn and engage what is left; if not you may have to put some rubber grommets or pieces to support the bottom and keep pressure on the exit port piece which is not locked by only two screws.

Oven buzzed and no heat

  • Customer: Joseph from Saint Charles, IL
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 54 of 65 people found this instruction helpful
First took down the hood/microwave and removed the sheet metal housing.
I changed HV diode as it was the least expensive component and the first one that internet suggested and tested bad with a ohm meter. Didn't fix a thing.
Capacitor failed test with meter so I ordered and then replaced this.
Still no change so I ordered a new magnetron.
Now I have over $100 invested in a 9 year old oven but a new one is three times this so if my time is free I am still ahead.
The magnetron may be the first part installed onto the oven. To remove the old magnetron and install the new the top plastic vent hood moldings and motor had to be removed. Pretty straight forward but not a little amount of work.
The new magnetron did the job and the oven now heats like new.

My microwave began suddenly making a loud humming noise while cooking food.

  • Customer: Lindsay from Nampa, ID
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 110 of 235 people found this instruction helpful
My microwave began suddenly making a loud harsh humming noise while cooking food. I did not let it go on long enough to know if it cooked the food or not. I did some Internet research and learned that it was likely the Magnetron. The test for this was to run the microwave for at least a minute on the lowest power setting and see if the noise cycled on and off. It did, so I (actually, my wife) ordered the part from partselect.com using the model number. I was successful in replacing the part, and we are back to microwave popcorn and quick defrost for a price that was less than a service call, however, it was time consuming, required a large work area, and access to 5 out of 6 sides of the unit. So proceed at your own discretion

Caution:

The first thing in every set of repair instructions was to discharge (short-circuit) the capacitor, as it may store large (as in lethal) amounts of electricity even when it is not connected to a power source. I had never done this, but found these instructions:

“Discharging your microwave's capacitor is absolutely essential in preventing injury to your microwave, your tools, and yourself. A capacitor stores a large amount of electricity even when your microwave is unplugged, and it must be discharged before beginning any repair.
A capacitor is discharged by creating a short circuit between each of the two capacitor terminals, and between each terminal and the chassis. The chassis is the metal mounting (bare metal surface) of the capacitor. Read these directions thoroughly before you proceed.
With your microwave unit unplugged, touch the blade of a well insulated screwdriver to one terminal. Gently slide the screwdriver forward until it reaches the other terminal, holding it there for a few seconds. Be aware that this often results in a loud and startling 'POP'.
Repeat this procedure in order to create a short circuit between each capacitor terminal and the chassis (bare metal mounting plate surface). This same method can be applied to a capacitor having three, and not two, terminals.”
I had not run my microwave in over a week, and then while my part was shipping, left my microwave 'unplugged' for more than two days, and my capacitor apparently discharged itself, although I did go through the above procedure carefully and completely - just in case.
Step-By-Step:
1. You must remove your microwave from the cabinets - it is impossible to repair otherwise. This is best accomplished with 2 strong people - my wife and I made it work, but wished for another guy.
a. While supporting the microwave, remove the two screws coming down through the cabinet above.
b. Lift the rear of the microwave as much as possible, then tilt the front down - there is a clip high on the left side, as well as the hinge/clips on the bottom.
c. If you do not lift it off the wall all at once, you may have to lift the rear even farther to remove it from the hinge/clips on the bottom.
Important Note: Always beware of the microwave door, if it is bent or broken and cannot retain a seal, the microwave not function as a safety feature to keep from releasing microwaves.
2. Remove the vent cover on the top/front of the microwave - be careful, it's plastic.
3. Remove the vent cover and light panel on the bottom of the microwave - this is several screws and some simple wire clips.
4. Remove the "shell" (top and sides) of the microwave - this is several more screws on the back. Make sure to remove the plate that is holding the cord in place on the top.
5. Remove the interface panel by the screws on the top (which had been hidden by the vent cover) - the wires can remain attached, just slide it aside.
6. Remove the metal cover on the right side at the rear; this will expose the Magnetron and the Capacitor. Remember to immediately test and discharge the capacitor!

7. After you discharge the capacitor, remove the other cover plate and the support bracket - in case you haven't noticed, this is a time and space consuming operation.

8. You

Door handle broken

  • 55 of 74 people found this instruction helpful
First I tried to remove the inside choke cover on the door. After breaking it in three pieces, I knew we were in trouble. Once that is removed, you have to remove the choke to get to the screws that hold the handle in place. Try to remove the choke without doing more damage appears to be impossible. A call to my local appliance repair center confirmed that replacing the handle is almost impossible to do without damaging the door. They do not even attempt to replace one. By the time you replace the handle, you will need a new door and then you realized you would had been better off the replace the oven. And that what we will do. A four year old over-the-range microwave and no door handle. It is a shame, but you hear the same stories from others. I am in the food business and my company uses commercial microwaves. We replace handles on these units with no problems, so I assumed I would do the same for my home unit.
As my local service center replied, "those doors were never intended to come apart." And I agree, and certainly not in one piece. Anyone need a handle for a Whirlpool m/w?
