I got a new oster microwave as a gift. When I set it up, do I remove the foil covered type cardboard right side panel inside the microwave? It covers a hole. I am not sure if I need to remove it or not.
Model # OM1101NOE
I just bought an oster micro and was wondering if the cardboard/foil looking piece on right side should be removed before use?

hi suzanne. If the glass tray in your microwave doesn't turn, it may be due to a broken drive motor. Most units have a round glass turntable which has a motor driven coupler and roller guide turning the tray. To access the motor, first unplug the microwave and remove the bottom panel.
It is supposed to run on and will stop on its own as long as the door is closed. The purpose is to remove steam and condensation, plus smells from the cooking cavity and cool down the magnetron (the part that emits the microwaves).
Unplug microwave, remove top," several screws" look to the right where the keypad control board is, now look down where the printed circuit board is, fuse should be near by clipped in, pop fuse and replace with same current rating, assemble before testing, "lethal voltages present"
After six months I just figured it out. Push the cook by weight button in and hold it until the clock function comes on. Turn left for hour and right for minute. Figured this out by holding the cancel button in and a child lock came on, I didn't know how to release it so I reversed the process by holding it in and it cleared. I tried it with the cook by weight, which has a small clock icon next to it and voilla.
The lamp is located under the stainless top cover of the microwave which unscrews from the back and sides, the bottom corners in the back have special torx screws which are meant to thwart you from removing them but a pair of locking pliers does the trick. Then under the cover on the top of the microwave there's a black elliptical shaped base with only 1 screw holding it down, that is the lamp. Pull the female spade connectors from the lamp, unscrew it and take it out. Oster has about the worst customer service around so i have not verified that they will sell a replacement lamp but if you can find a 20W 120V replacement with spade connectors that will do.
