Vent grille was broken and exterior door panel was completely cracked and part of it had fallen off.

I actually followed one of your previous buyers who had the same issue as I. Replacing the grille vent is easy. The door was just a little harder as I wanted to make sure I did not break the glass. Unscrewed and popped off the old pane and snapped the new one in place and put the screws back in. On a side note your site was very easy to use and easy to find the parts I needed quickly.

Replace vent grill and filters.

I went online and found the manual for this appliance and used the instructions, which were very helpful. The filters just pop out and the new ones fit right in. No tools were needed. For the vent grill, it was necessary to move the metal tabs back and forth a few times manually before they were properly placed in order to take the two screws, which hold the grill in place. I then loosely tightened the screws (so as not to crack the plastic grill)with a Phillips Head screwdriver. When my husband got up from his nap he was pleased to see the job completed without his help.:)

Customer: DIANE from ROUND ROCK, TX

The vent grill kept falling off because plastic tabs had broken off.

I got my 5 foot step-ladder and Phillips screw driver and removed two screws that were already there. I discarded the two metal clips because new metal clips are already inserted in the vent grill. I lined-up the vent grill on the microwave and screwed in the two screws. It's a perfect fit.

I'm a 62 year old woman, and if I can do it - anyone can. The vent grill arrived two days after I ordered it.

Vent grille is plastic & keeps breaking

First I removed the two screws from the previous grille. When the part came-no screws were included. Second, the plastic hole that was pre-drilled was not open enough so I had to make it open so the screws would fit. Your part fit just great and we are defintely satisfied. I have had to replace this vent grille 2 times-don't think I will have to do this again. Thank you

The original part had fallen off and broke when it hit the floor.

Removed two screws to that held the old bracket. Installed new part and replaced the screws. Very simple. About 10 minutes. The part cost about $38.00. A repairman charged my neighbor 100 + dollars for the part and plus installation for the exact same thing. I highly recommend Partselect.

Broken tabs

We took a chance on the less expensive black Whirlpool vent grille as I found online that it would fit our stainless steel Kitchenaid microwave. My husband was able to pry the stainless cover off the broken grille and snap it onto the new black one. Then just screw in the top screws to secure. We are very happy with the stainless/black of the new setup. It goes very well with the stainless/black of the cooktop and oven.
