Part wasn't correct

The first part I had to send back because it wouldn't fit. You made it easy to return the wrong part. The replacement part also wasn't correct. I was able to modify it to work. Cut off the not needed tabs and screwed in. Thanks for having something that would work.

The tabs for the screws completly crumbled

I removed the two screws, removed the broken grill, popped in the new grill (after I ordered the correct color, did not get the biscuit color I thought I had ordered the first time) replaced the two screws....I was good to go. Strange that the tabs in the first place just fell apart...but reading others, find this seems to be a common problem. Simple as pie.

Vent was broken.

I, carefully, inserted the bottom tabs into the appropriate slots. I then rotated the vent piece up and into place under the top lip of the Microwave. Once positioned I installed the screws required to hold the piece in place. Very simple replacement. It gave me a chance to clean the grease behind the vent.

Plastic vent on microwave was cracked and would no longer stay on.

Removed the broken parts and screws and placed the new vent on and tightened screws. I am an 76 year old woman, so if I could do this, then anyone can! Surprisingly easy to install.

Microwave vent grill

I have been doing repair on things on my own for years, I am a retired prevenative maintenace supervisor.
While cleaning the microwave vent grill from being old it fell apart, so I ordered the part using the internet to find the a company that has the same part, the part didnt take long before I recieved it. It didnt take five minutes to install it, and it saved me cash in the pocket from someone else to do the work. wallen
