How do I check or replace a fuse in my Sharp R 1850A convection/microwave?


Unplug the microwave first.
Then carefully remove the exterior panel on the right of the unit.
The screw is at the top under the front grille/vent..
Behind this cover near the bottom there should be a ceramic fuse.
Carefully remove it and test it with an ohm meter for continuity.
If there is no continuity replace the fuse.

How do i get the air vent cover off, so I can clean grease from the top.


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are trying to the air vent cover off your Frigidaire microwave, model# PLMV169DC, so you are able to clean the grease from underneath the top cover. Please follow these instructions:

1. Disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.
2. Remove the louver mounting screws.
3. Pull the louver away from the unit.
4. Change the charcoal filter.
5. Carefully push the louver back into place and replace the screws removed in step 2.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Samsung Microwave SMH9187 error message (?) 5E


You can do this without removing unit from wall. First unplug unit. Next remove the two screws on the top of the unit closest to the front. These screws simply keep the up facing vent in place. Next slide the vent to the left (plastic latches on bottom hold in place) to allow vent to be removed. You should now see a single screw above the control panel. Remove it then open the microwave door. Gently slide the control panel up which will disengage the plastic latches on the panel sides. Suggest if you are going to remove the controller and replace take a picture before removing it so you know exactly how to reconnect all the wires.

How does this microwave exhaust system work. The installer did not use any duct work, so is the exhaust internal somehow? There is no grill on the exterior for exhaust


The exhaust fan appears to intake through a louvered vent in the bottom rear of the microwave case and output through a grease filter near the top front center of the case. You may be able to see some vent holes along the top of the case though these might be obscured by the manner in which the microwave was installed. You should be able to pop off the front panel that runs above the door but you'll need to consult the owners manual for specific instuctions.

Cheers.

How do you clean the vented area at the top


Two screws on the top of the grill can be removed, then the grill pulls straight off.

Caution - I broke the tabs on the grill where the screws hold metal tabs - $98 for a new grill!

Cheers.

Fan and light buttons pushed in, how do i install new buttons.


I just fixed mine. Same problem.

  1. remove the top vent (like replacing filter) w/ 2 or 3 screws on the top of the unit
  2. Remove the one screw on the top of the clock/control unit.
  3. Remove the clock/control panel by sliding up then out
  4. See circuit board at the bottom for the 3 switches. Hopefully it just popped out of place.
  5. pop it back into place and re-assemble
  6. if it's broken, you'll have to find the replacement part here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/
  7. If the actual buttons (black plastic) are broken, you have to replace the whole plastic housing for the electronics. Probably a big project and/or you'd replace the whole bit for hundreds of dollars, but even still, it's a pop-out, pop-in.
Good luck,

-tj

How to remove the vent above the door for cleaning


Sometimes they may be dirty and will respond to cleaning, but in some cases, the actual plastic may yellow and the only remedy is to replace it.

The manual just says to take the two screws out, but doesn't refer to their being anything unusual. I would assume they're small Philips.

But if you're unsure of what kind of tool to use, can you post a photo of the screw head and maybe we can tell.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Clean vent


The vent (also known as grill assembly in GE literature) comes off after removing the two screws at the top of the unit and gently sliding the entire assembly to the left about an inch. This will allow the vent to be cleaned of grease, hair, etc., as well as giving some access to the areas behind the vent.
