First of all, be sure you have unplugged the microwave from the power. You can find exploded views of similar models (the PLMV168) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 These drawings can be very useful. A screen on the end? Sounds like a sensor. This makes me very very concerned, your desire to remove some part, but you're not sure what it is, and we have no background as to what the oven is doing wrong, etc. We have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk If I can be of further help, feel free to contatc me there.

FMV156DCC stopped working.


It may be a blown fuse or thermal cutout / thermostat on either the magnetron or oven cavity.

We have the basic FMV156 service manual and have uploaded it here to help you.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range grille and control panel assembly in under 5 minutes. Then you can access most of it for testing and part replacement.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Remove a door on a microwave


I wouldn't remove the door myself if I were you. If you just got the microwave, it should be under a return/replace policy, or a warranty. I would recommend returning the microwave and getting a sturdier one, as you don't know if the problem exists for all microwaves in that series, and most stores don't allow the replacement to be return/replaced.
