Can we used the microwave withough this part
Hi Mario, thank you for your question. You should not run your microwave without the Stirrer Fan Cover. This part helps to protect from sparking inside of your appliance. I hope this helps!

My stirrer fan cover had a quarter-sized burn/bubble in it. I ordered a new one. When I took out the old fan and cover, I noticed a quarter-sized black mark/burn on the inside-top of the microwave, above where the silver fan is placed. Is this microwave still save to use with a new stirrer fan cover? There is no hole in the microwave, just a black mark.
For model number je1860wh002
Hi Eric, usually these black marks are just cosmetic, as long as there is not actual physical damage it should be fine. If you are very concerned you can try contacting a technician to come take a look directly and inspect the microwave. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!

We burned something in microwave while cooking. Can't get rid of smell. Can still smell burned smell coming out of it. How can i remedy this.
For model number Jvm1540lm4cs
Hello David, Thank you for the question. You can try to fill a bowl with 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon white vinegar. Microwave it for 4-5 minutes and leave it with the door shut for 10-15 minutes. Steam will loosen smell-causing detritus stuck to the walls. After the waiting period, remove the bowl and wipe the inside of the microwave down with a paper towel.Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

The fan cover in the top of the microwave had a melted spot.
I used a flat screwdriver blade to push out the rivet. Then used the screwdriver to loosen the fan cover and gave it a little twist. It came out with no problem. There was some grease build up on the aluminum fan, so I cleaned it. I placed the clean fan into the new fan cover and put it back in place in the microwave. There are several notches to match up, and then I gave it a slight twist to secure the notches. Then, the new rivet was put into the hole and pushed to make it secure. Finished!

Plastic cover had quarter size hole burned
Use a butter knife to pop small plastic pin out and turn to remove. Used the metal pinwheel from old one and placed it back up in the microwave. Never heard of this being possible, but it seems to happen per the website and many other comments.

Stirrer fan cover was melted
This repai me couldn’t have been simpler! I noticed that the stirrer fan cover on our microwave had melted areas. My husband suggested we just buy a new microwave. As the handywoman of the family, I searched online to see if it was a fix that I could handle. I ordered a part for less than $20 and fixed it in about 30 seconds! All I had to do was pop out the plastic screw, put the fan in the new cover, and pop it back into place!
