If your unit is set up to ventilate to the outside, there should be a metal grease filter, which should be cleaned in hot soapy water whenever it gets greased up.

It's important to be sure that your ductwork and outside vent flapper are clear, too. Animal nests can block them.

If it is set up to recirculate, it should have a charcoal filter in it, and those should be replaced (they cannot be cleaned) about every six months or so, depending on your usage.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts (including filters) by entering your full model number here.

Greetings. My Hoover Handy Plus + isn't holding its charge. Do the rechargable batteries need replacing? Regards

The batteries don't last long if they are on charge all of the time. I would repace them and only charge the new ones, when flat.

How do I replace the water filter on a Whirlpool refrigerator model #gd5shaxlbo2?

Along the front base of the refrigerator is a round screw off cap. Locate and turn to remove. Inside is the water filter. Grab the tab on the filter end and turn CCW to remove. You may have to push in while turning on some models. Insert a replacement filter and turn CW to lock in place. Reinstall exterior cap. Its that simple.
For assistance, you can refer to any of the following websites for an illustration of you appliance:
Enter your model number as "GD5SHAXLB02". The second to last digit is a "zero", vice the letter "O".
NOTE: You normally DO NOT have to turn off the water supply when changing out the filter.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Panasonic Microwave has no power

There is a 125V, 20 AMP line fuse inside the microwave. Its usually mounted on a small input line filter board at the point where the power cord enters the back of the unit. You will need to UNPLUG the microwave oven and remove the exterior case to access. The case comes off in various ways depending on manufacture and model. has some excellent exploded view parts illstrations you can use to assist you in component location and assembly.

If the model number is correct, the fuse is listed as item 55 in this parts illustration:

There are also a couple of thermal cut-outs listed as items 51 and 52. These can affect the operation of the oven as well, but usually are related to overheating something in the oven cavity. If you haven't overheated the oven cavity recently, its probably the line fuse. (Popcorn and Potatoes are notorious for causing overheat problems).

You can purchase repacement fuses for appliances at any hardware store. Just make sure the rating is the same as manufacturer installed fuse. You need to purchase a 125V, 20AMP, slow blow for best results.

To answer your question about the fuse blowing when the unit is not in use...Yes, this does occur. You may have experienced a minor power fluctuation such as a brown out over the night that could have caused the fuse to blow. Some components are more sensistive to variations in current than others.

Another possibility that I have to mention is roaches. This does not in any way insinuate you live in filthy conditons, or have an infestation. I just need to mention that insects (such as roaches) are attracted to electronics. Especially, where there may be food. Since their body composition is mostly made up of water, if they crawl across an electrical component, they could cause a short circuit and blow a fuse.

If you have any questions, or need assistance troubleshooting, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: Make sure you take any resistance readings with the microwave UNPLUGGED and the component under test isolated (removed) from the circuit.

Door repacement

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) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Then you'll see the hidden screw(s) you need to remove.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
