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

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

Microwave runs when door is open


Hey friend, thanks for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire microwave is running when the door is opened. I have identified a few possibilities could be the control panel or your door. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend having a professional come and properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt

What are the Reasons why One touchy door open button is sticking on FGM0205KBB microwaves


Good afternoon friend, thank you for the post!

I understand that you are stating the door open button is continuing to get stuck on your Frigidaire microwave. I would like to ask some additional questions to make sure I can provide additional assistance. First, which button are you referring to that is sticking? When I pulled up your model FGM0205KBB, I do not see a door open button. Could we verify the model number is correct? Once I have that information I look forward to assisting you. -Matt

Frigidaire gallery otr microwave vent not working


Hello Lori Wilson - Thanks for your post! Generally speaking, the vent is not very strong. Try to place a single paper towel on the underside of the microwave. With the vent on, it should suction the paper towel to the bottom of the microwave. If not, I personally recommend contacting the installer to verify that the vent fan is installed properly and the exhaust outer is correct.

Frigidaire microwave not heating over the range


Hello

Try to cook something simple such as microwave popcorn. If the unit does not light up or turn on, check the outlet with another appliance to make sure the outlet is functioning correctly.


Check the fuses or circuit breakers in you house. If the outlet does not work after testing it with another appliance, try to plug the microwave in a different outlet.


Check the hinges and door hooks to make sure the door is closing properly. Look to see whether a small piece of food is clinging to the door, preventing it from closing all the way. Check the release mechanism and the rotating plate to make sure they can move freely as well.


Plug in the microwave and start it a the bag of microwave popcorn inside. If the lights go on but it is not producing heat, listen and try to hear whether the unit sounds the way it usually does. If it does not, there might be problems with the circuit board. This will need to be repaired by a certified Frigidaire professional.


Check the display that shows the time and power. If the display is flickering but it does not alter the operation of the microwave, it is not a problem. If, however, the lights flicker and your food is not heating, there may be a problem in the microwave cabinet.


Listen for buzzing sounds. If there is a buzzing sound and no heat is being produced, you may have to get a new magnetron, power diode, or high-voltage capacitor. These can be purchased from a Frigidaire retailer.


Look at the handle on the door. The most common complaint about all models of the Frigidaire microwave, according to Consumeraffairs.com, was cracked or broken door handles. Frigidaire will replace faulty handles while the oven is under warranty. In many cases, they will replace the handle even after the warranty expires for a "reasonable" amount of time.

How to remove door from ge advantium 120 microwave. i broke the handle off the microwave and have another on order. now i find that i have to take the face off to install the new handle.GE


The door handle can easily be replaced on MOST microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement

The average cost for a replacement handle usually runs about $20 - $40. Replacements (if required) may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.
The door handle is a simple repair that can be done with the door in place, or removed. And, you do not have to uninstall the oven if this is an over the range model.

It would help, however, to know the number of the microwave oven you are referring to. All ovens are not designed the same and are assembled in different ways. What I have provided you with is the basic information that applies to most ovens. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Can I replace a 1.3 cu ft otr microwave with a 1.5


Brackets can remain the same throughout a particular brand for several years but will also change every year at times. Same year and same brand, I would say yes. Different year of manufacture or different brand name I would say, no it will not fit the existing brackets. If you have a particular brand in mind and have the model number of the existing OTR, it is usually possible to search out installation instructions for both at the manufacturer's website. You could then compare to see if they will match up. The two screws through the upper cabinet floor into thr top of the OTR can vary, within a particular brand even in the same year of manufacturer.

We had sevseral boiling pots going underneath the over the range microwave without the exhaust fan on while also cooking in the microwave, we saw sparks in the microwave and it went dead. now nothing...


The main power fuse inside the MW may have been blown from the steam shorting out the circuitry. If so this fuse probably can be replaced. Lowes has replacement fuses.
