Question about Maytag UXT5230AD Kitchen Hood
My on/off switch has broken and it is floating around in face plate cover. How do I remove the cover where the fan speed, and on off buttons are located on the front of the hood?
There is definetly somthing blocking the air from escaping, either the duct is blocked or the installer did not remove the metal plate which opens the fan up for it to be able to evacuate.

The spindle (called a turntable shaft) sits atop a small motor shaft from the turntable motor. You either have a weak turntable motor, stripped shaft (which allows the motor shaft to free spin when it has any weight on it), or both.
The turntable motor is located under the bottom panel of the microwave oven. You do not have to uninstall the oven for this repair.
First, unplug the unit, remove the glass carousel tray, and pull straight up on the turntable shaft to remove it. Next, locate and remove the series of screws along the bottom panel underneath the oven. The bottom panel will open exposing the drive motor. The motor comes out by disconnecting the connector plug and a couple of mounting screws.
If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you can view these parts at searspartsdirect.com. Locate items 11 (turntable motor) and 14 (shaft) under the "Cavity" heading. Other sites you may try are pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspros.com or repairclinic.com to see if you can find these parts any cheaper.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
