SOURCE: Hole in plastic on inside of door

check the conductivity of the plastic with an ohmmeter by placing the probes an inch apart on the plastic surface. If the resistance is large or infinity, the plastic probably performs no role in stopping the microwave radiation. If so, any epoxy probably can be used to close the hole safely. Make sure you don't use too much and if possible place tape over the repair and orient the microwave so the epoxy presses against the tape while drying to prevent it from oozing into any door hinge/close mechanism. Otherwise, a piece of microwave door glass from a broken unit can ge glued over the hole and should stop the radiation. You can check for leakage with test units but be very carefuly anyway.

Hopefully you didn't disturb the hinges to remove the door, since that will require alignment and testing to be sure it is not leaking.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

SOURCE: bulb replacement

NO,If you can get to the three phillips screws directly over the vent door then you do not have to take the unit down. Unplug the unit. Remove the top three screws over the center of the louvre and then carefully lower the vent louvre. (Lowering helps me get a better grip on the louvre assembly. Then you will slide the vent louvre assembly about 1/8" to the left and then it will pull straight back and out. In the center is an aluminum cover which has a phillips screw facing you. Remove this screw and the cover plate. The light bulb is directly to the left of the inside of the cover plate. You will see the metal tabs which hold it in place. Pull the bulb housing assembly straight out (to your right) as you face the microwave. Then you will locate your halogen 120V 20W bulb. I just received this from a fellow guest on fix it and I was able to fix my unit 10 mintes ago.Also another tip was to take the inside glass out when reinserting the bulb unit back in because it does get in the way. Good Luck

How do I clean the stainless steel interior of my electrolux icon microwave


Hello - Interior cleaning after convection, mix or broil cooking:


Spatters may occur because of moisture and grease. Wash immediately after use with hot, soapy water. Rinse and polish dry. Harder to remove spatters may occur if oven is not thoroughly cleaned or if there is long time/high temperature cooking. If so, you may wish to purchase an oven cleaner pad with liquid cleaner within it-not a soap filled steel pad-for use on stainlessor porcelain surfaces. Follow manufacturer's directions carefully and be especially cautious not to get any of the liquid cleaner in the perforations on the wall or ceiling or any door surfaces. Rinse thoroughly and polish dry. After cleaning the interior thoroughly, residual grease may be removed from the interior ducts and heater by simply operating the oven on 450 F for 20 minutes without food. Ventilate the room if necessary.


Interior cleaning after microwave cooking:


Cleaning is easy because no heat is generated to the interior surfaces; therefore, there is no baking and setting of spills or spattering. To clean the interior surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and warm water. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS OR SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil, use baking soda or a mild soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water. NEVER SPRAY OVEN CLEANERS DIRECTLY ONTO ANY PART OF THE CONVECTION MICROWAVE OVEN.

My dishes are dirty after the wash. The glasses have small particles dried on the inside. They are upside down. How does it do that? Thanks.


Thanks for using FixYa.

An answer for your question about your dishwasher could be that your jets or spray arms are clogged.

1. Please look inside the dishwasher for obvious obstructions and turn the spray arms to make sure they move freely.
2. Now look at the bottom sprayer and at the little holes. If you see food or stuff in any of the holes, use small tweezers to remove.
3. Also look in the bottom area for items which may be blocking the water delivery hole.
4. Finally, look at the top sprayer arm. Using a flashlight, look closely for food or other particles which may be clogging the holes.

Let me know if this helps or if you have questions.

Thanks again for using FixYa,

My radiators are getting warm when my heatings not on. Any ideas??


You can check your microwave for possible LEAKS and make sure there are no FOOD particles blocking the oven's fan system To check for leaks, place a DAMP paper towel around the door seals and place a glass cup of water in the microwave. If there are leaks of microwave energy you will find DRY or WARM areas on the paper towel. BE CAREFUL not to peer or watch the test, done on level HIGH for 1 minute. Microwaves may cook the vitreous humor (liquid in eyeball,) just like it would an egg. If the towel is dry or hot ANYWHERE after the test, TOSS the microwave. Your safety is not calculated by the cost of a new oven.Let me know how this goes; I have tested many older ovens and have found quite a few leaky ones.

Everything seems to be working except it won't heat anything it just suddenly stopped heating.


Did anything spill or blowup inside? Remove the glass tray and be sure all is clean and dry.
If something did blow up (food or liquid), find the small mica window on the inside, and carefully remove it, clean up, dry off in the cavity too, and replace it.
Try to use. This has fixed 3 different microwaves for me. Hope it helps you.

In the future be careful not to use too much liquid in exterior cleaning of the microwave. To recover what has been damaged that depends on the nature of the problem. If you had liquid seep inside the microwave during cleaning the best solution seems to be to unplug and stop using your microwave (to prevent any further shorting or electronic damage to the control panel. Give the microwave at least a couple of days to dry. If you can gently warm the affected area with a heat lamp or regular incandescent bulb of some kind, it may help to evaporate any liquid that remains. Be very careful not to melt anything by getting it too close or getting it too hot.
If this doesn't resolve the problem, it is possible that the control panel has sustained some damage and may need to be replaced... but only as a last resort.

I cleaned the vents on my over the stove micro wave (whirlpool), it was full of grease. I sprayed fantastic and the then cleaned. All was fine, but somehow now only the fan and light come on when I close...


The controls have gotten wet. If they don't dry out over time, you'll need a new keypad and/or control board.

I always recommend that users instead spray cleaner on a soft cloth then wipe the control panel.

And the grille can be removed and cleaned separately.

Also be sure to clean your grease filters regularly. The owner's manual will probably tell you to remove them and clean them in a sink with warm soapy water.

If you're using a charcoal filter, it must be replaced (not cleaned) every six months or so.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
