You will need a T20 x 100mm Torx Wrench to remove the 4-5 security screws that hold the top "hood" on the microwave unit. I could not find the wrench at Home Depot or Lowe's but it was available at Harbor Freight tools. Its also found easily on the Internet. Its about $10 for a set of 5-10 different sizes.
After removing the screw, and removing the hood, the rest is pretty simple. The left side (looking from the rear of the unit) will be completely exposed now. Be careful not to touch the Magnetron, Transformer, and other wiring to the unit as everything is on this left side.
You will have to unscrew one screw on the top of the control panel that attaches it to the main unit. Once that screw is off, you have to carefully disconnect 3 electrical connectors on the circuit board, then you just have to pull the control board up and out, as there are a couple of latches on the bottom that hooks it onto the frame.
