I first read where someone had the same problem. Their solution was a burned-out fuse. I ordered a new fuse...installed it and that did not solve my problem. I revisted PartSelect and read how Marla (from Arlington, TX)solved her problem. I purchased a secondary switch and when it arrived, I made a copy of Marla's instructions and followed them to the letter. I installed the new secondary switch into the secondary space, put everything back together and the oven STILL DID NOT WORK. I had to take the latching panel apart again and test each switch to see if there was another bad one. I found that the third switch was burned out. So I took the new switch out of the second slot and installed it into the third slot. I tested the switches before reinstalling the latching panel. This time everything worked. So I put everything back together, reinstalled the microwave on the wall, tested it again, and everything worked perfectly.

Changing 2 lightbulbs is NOT ROCKRT SCIENCE. With a screw-driver, remove the under MW light lens, unscrew the 2 burned out light bulbs, and replace with 2 new quality light bulbs. Test out that both are lite and working as they should, replace the lens and you are done, Until you find out one of the new (made in Chins) light bulbs is burned out after about 6 hours of being lite, call the parts phonr number and order a new replace bulb.

Simple, simply lifted the old piece out of position and dropped the new piece in. A small part of the broken old piece must have fallen away and is still in the unit, but it has not gotten in the way of the new piece doing its purpose

Save the screws from your old vent grill, they don't come with the vent grill part! I got the new vent grill within 3 days with standard delivery and just line it up and screwed it in. So easy and it's back to new! I will Use partselect.com for any of my future repairs, very happy!

I used a small putty knife (a butter knife will work, too) to begin to pry off the inner plastic panel. The panel flexes. Gently pull up the panel and pull over the keepers at the top then do the same for the bottom and end. Then used the screw driver to remove one screw from each inside end of the door handle. Those two screws screwed through the metal interior door surround to the handle. Then the metal metal interior surround. Then unscrew the two screws that were hidden by the metal surround. Then reverse the procedure to attach the handle. The interior plastic piece simply snaps into place.

Microwave worked but oven fan came on when door was opened - should onlly come on when oven is operating.

Removed the microwave with the buit in housing from the cabinet. Removed microwave from built in housing. Removed outer cabinet giving access to remove control panel and smart board where switches are located. Removed control panel to get to smartboard. Removed smart board after disconnecting a few wires to allow easy removal. Individually removed and then tested each switch using multimeter. Found seondary Door Switch (bottom of smart board) operation to be intermittent (switch trip button extremely loose and rattle inside this particular switch) Ordered replacement part which came very quickly on standard shipping order. Put new switch on smart board and remounted, reinstalled control panel and reconnected various wire connectors previously disconnected. Then plugged in oven and tested for opertation - didn't work at all! But, after bleeding off capacior charge by removing connectors and discharging capacitor to ground, then reassembling control board and smart board into oven, then trying agian, it has worked perfectly ever since. Do not understand why capacitor disconnect/discharge was required but suspect this reset the control electronics. Easy fix and hope to get another 12 years out of this appliance which is used multiple times every day. Also have two other identical micorwave ovens, one is 20 years old, but these get used relatively infrequently.

One of the easiest repairs I've ever done, I have AHS, but it was way cheaper to replace it myself, took about 3 minutes and cost less than 50 dollars, remove 5 screws to take the bottom plate off, 2 screws that hold the motor on, unplug it And slap the new one in...very simple, think the wife could have handled this one, lol!

Simply removed five screws from the bottom of the microwave, removed two more screws holding the drive motor and unplugged the motor. We often have the initial urge to call an appliance repair shop, but this part was easily found on Parts Select.Serial numbers on the part had changed but their photo assured me they had the right motor.
