Question:

How many charcoal filters does it take and do you have a pic to show this, not the parts pic's but how to install. Mine only has one, but one person stated it has 2.

Answer:

Hi Frances, That is a good question. If your microwave only has one charcoal filter then just order one. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day.

Mounting brackets are fragile and plastic support is easily broken

Replaced the intake grille. The grille should be removed prior to cleaning. The entire part is plastic and easily broken so that the two tabs for the mounting screws are shattered and will not hold the part in place. If one attempts to clean the grille using only a moderate amount of pressure with a cloth the fragile plastic will break. The part is poorly designed. When the vent is removed to replace the charcoal filter, one may discover that the grille has already been broken in a previous cleaning operation.

Replacing charcoal filters

Remove two screws from Vent Grille, one on either side, and remove one screw inside Vent Grille on right side. Pull Vent Grille off exposing the two Charcoal filters. Remove the two Charcoal filters by hand and replace with new ones. Reinstall the Vent Grille and tighten screws. That's it. I'm not handy (ask my wife) and if I can do it so can you.
