I bought the microwave on sale at Sears. the glass cooking tray was missing. It was to be ordered but after 2.5 months I had not received it so called Part Select and received the tray within 5 days! Ironically, the original one arrived the same day. I would recommend PartSelect for their prompt and very courteous service.

Unplugged Microwave, Removed vent cover (2 screws on top of microwave, then slide cover to the left, then forward) Removed control panel (1 screw at top of panel) then removed the two screws that hold in the door switch assembly. (these you will only see by opening the microwave). Located lower door switch, removed connecting wires, and pulled switch by releasing small plastic tab which held it in. Put new switch in place, reconnected wires, then reconnected door switch assembly. Reconnected control panel, and then put the vent cover back on. Tested microwave and it no longer runs when the door is open. Super easy fix, and was done in under 5 minutes.

It was a over the range microwave It had to be removed off the wall. Once down I removed the bottom plate and then removed the touch control panel. Per the instructions in the user manual tested the transformer it was ok. Next tested the capacitor it tested bad and also the diode tested bad. The parts were ordered from you. The parts installed easily. Reassembled the microwave and tested. Unit no longed tripped the AC breaker and worked heating some water. Installed the unit back above the range.
