First, disconnect the power to the cooktop, range, whatever the appliance is. Then…

  • If it’s a range, there is usually a couple of screws that hold thefront of the top down, remove the screws, lift the front of the top andpull it out from the back hinges. Install the new top, make sure thereare no loose wiring.
  • If it’s a cooktop, you may have to lift the cooktop out of thecabinet to replace the glass. Ha! Where is the promised simplicity?!Ok, ok, it’s a little more difficult than replacing a top on a range,but still pretty managable. After making sure that the power to thecooktop has been turned off, open the cabinet and look up. There shouldbe a couple of brackets that secure the cooktop. Remove the brackets,carefully lift the top and set it on the counter top (put a towel onthe counter top first). It gets easier… replace the glass top (makesure there is no loose or exposed wiring), set the cooktop back in thecounter, secure it with brackets as was before, and double check yourwork.
You can find the complete instructions in the service manual. Very likely you'll need the foam tape to seal the new glass top.

I have been given a A24003 Akai microwave oven & it's not warming foods up... how do I use it?

Here are some general instructions for akai microwaves and it looks like their microwaves will not function unless the clock is set first, so that would be a good start. However, If you have the power level set to High, and you can microwave a glass of water for 2 mins, yet it still comes out cold, then the microwave itself is faulty and not cost effective to repair. Let me know if you have any further queries on this, and good luck :-)

I don't know how to replace the charcoal filter on my Frigidaire FMV157GC microwave. There's also food between the grate and the glass on the microwave door. Help !

This is billed as the Use & Care Manual for the Frigidaire FMV156DC Microwave Oven:

Not sure it is the correct one but you will find instruction for cleaning the exhaust filters on page 19.

Below is the Use & Care Manual for a model direct from the Frigidaire site:

This is more helpful as on page 20 it includes illustrated instructions for removing the charcoal filter to change the oven light. Disconnect from power, remove the ventilation grate at the top to access the charcoal filter, slide back and lift to remove. With the grate removed carry out any required cleaning.

The plastic film inside the window on the door is pulling away from the glass. Does this consttute any danger. Does it or the micrwave have to be replaced? Other than that the microwave works perfectly.

The film stops food particles and steam from entering the part of the door that is difficult to keep clean. That is all it does.
No danger just difficult to clean.

Microwave is not heating up the food and the instructions i have are rubbish. I don't know if it's broken or if one of the kids touched someting which is causing this problem.

One way to be sure if maybe the kids changed some setting or if it is broken is -
Unplug it for 20 minuets to clear any settings..
Then plug it back in..
If still does not "heat the food" - it is broken..

Turntable wheel under glass tray broken

If the microwave comes with a roller ring to rotate the glass turntable then I would recommend that it needs to be used when the microwave is operating, as the turntable rotates the food so it can be heated evenly.

I would recommend checking with your local Panasonic repairer he may have access to a new roller or even a second hand one to tide you over.

Broken turntable

The owner's manual is online at:

You can contact Emerson at their number in the manual for a replacement.

I always suggest that people place food (especially popcorn) off-center on the tray (not in the middle) because the heating is better, plus the extreme heat is not always applied to the same spot in the tray each time.

Food placed in the middle will not cook as evenly.

Good luck, and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Same goes for me. I can get most of the trim off but not the area near the hinge. ! It will cost $100 for GE to come out, and I already own the new handle. Come on GE tell us the secret.
