Question about Microwave Ovens
Manufactured July-2001. Unit is an odd install in a basement with NO CABINET above (it is mounted directly to the ceiling). If I have to remove it to replace MAG, then it's a giant pain in the rear end, so I will just put a new unit if that's the case. I would much rather repair (replace mag) via faceplate only. I CAN SHUT OFF POWER for repair. please advise
There is no way u can replace mag without removing micro and placing on desk !
There r screws on the side and or behind the outer cover.
The mag maybe ok but the transformer or a common fuse , or rectifier gone bad .
Can to take a picture front and side of the micro location ?

The cooling fan is a must!
Otherwise, the magnetron will be ruined, and that drives up the repair cost.

Remove the face plate above the door. You will see two bolts where you can use a screwdriver to turn them (unlock them). Those bolts go all the way to the back of the microwave. Once you have turned them (you do not need to remove them), you will need to remove the one - three screws that come in from the cabinet above. You may have to jar it loose if it still stuck.

the top vent exhaust grill has two screws facing down-remove these. remove plastic vent. inside you will see a solid wire tringle assy. turn and pull this release.
warning if you have granite counters or tile, place plenty of material under it to stop the impact if oven gets away from you

There are indeed two springs that "cross" each other, and they must be both be replaced to ensure full strength.
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.
