Product Description

Vent Grille - Black Specifications

The vent grille, used in microwaves, mounts on the top of the appliance and covers parts inside the microwave without blocking off airflow. Instead, the vent allows air to pass through the slats. If the vent is blocked or damaged, it is best to repair the vent grille. To repair, first remove the screw that holds the grill tabs with a Phillips screwdriver and clean the vent area. Next, install new grill into the appropriate tabs and make sure to secure the screws to prevent it from falling. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacture for installation instructions and accurate guidance. Remember to unplug appliance from power source.

Replaced vent grill and grease filters
The repair was simple and easy. It required a Phillips head screw driver only. I Removed the vent grill and replaced it with the new grill there were only two screws that needed to be removed then refastened. Total five minutes. I also replaced the grease filters which took about a minute total time. I do many of my own repairs to my home and appliances .I've found your service parts delivery prompt and precise.

Vent grill broke when attempting to remove it to clean, previous owners had broken several tabs off
Removed the old grill. Then loosened the screws on the top of the microwave. Popped the grill in place and tightened the screws. it looks great, works perfectly, and we don't have to replace the unit that we were afraid might be the case.

thanks so much for providing these parts that saved us from buying a new microwave oven.

I had several broken appilances broken with parts to be replaced.
I had ordered the parts from Part Select and came with in a week. I ahd a Whrilpool microwave that had a door panel and vent grille that needed to be replaced and that was rplced with ease took less that five minutes to do. My Maytag refridgerator had it kickplate grille replace along with the pivot block that took all of about two minutes. The longest job that took about 5 minutes was my Whirlpool glass oven door that needed to be replaced, but that was pretty ease to replace also with an extra hand from my son. I just didn't want to break another glass door or I would have done it myself plus I was teaching him how to do self reparts.

Existing tabs on plastic vent grill had broken off
Removed screws holding the broken grill tabs with a phillips screwdriver
Removed broken grill and all broken tabs that fell into the vent area
Cleaned area where the new grill was to be placed
Inserted new grill onto the appropriate tabs and tightened the screws

BE CAREFUL as the tabs on the grill are thin and fragile when you insert the new grill don't force it into the slots, I used a knife as a way to slide the grill into place.

Broken vent cover
Unscrewed the remaining pieces of bracket slipped in new vent cover and attached with the two screws. Very easy since the web site showed where the vent attached. I saved over $60.00 doing this repair myself!

Vent grill was broken by a clean freak
Didn't realize this part had two tabs with reinforced screwholes in it. Those obviously had snapped off at some time in the distant past, and I had always removed the grille for cleaning carefully and washed it by hand and replaced it. The clean freak moved in and took this out WEEKLY and all the other tabs were eventually cracked and made the grille unusable; it kept rattling and falling out. When I got the replacement I noticed the broken tabs and replaced the item in a few minutes after removing the debris of five or six tabs and finding a Philips head screwdriver for the apparent screws (in fine shape, they were!) and tab remnants. Good fit, looks like new. Now hopefully the clean freak won't find my screwdriver next week.
