Hi, do you still have this microwave? For the case you want to throw it away: may I kindly ask you to leave the mounting frame to me? I do posess the same machine (bought with my kitchen in 2001), built in my kitchen board. When we moved last year, the workers who teared down the kitchen furniture, broke a part of the frame. Since than, I have asked in many places if it is possible to buy this part of the frame, but only found one shop. There I was told that I have to buy the complete frame, and it is so expensive that I flinched from buying it. So my idea is that I will pay you for the frame, if you agree with this.
Please contact me for further information. Thanks in advance!

I have whirlpool oven akz451/ix/01. My element is square when I look for a new one they are all round ?? Will this work in my cooker ??

whirlpool service center /agent will have a correct element for your unit
the shape is probably for a more even heat distribution in the oven as it will cover the floor/ top area of the oven better

Change light in whirlpool gold accubake system upper microwave oven

If you need to replace the bulb for the interior cabinet, you'll need to remove the two screws that holds the upper grille in place with a Philips screwdriver.

Access to these screws are from on top of the microwave.

Once you remove the grille, you should see a white plastic cover with a release tab; pop the open and you'll have access to the bulb compartment:

Watch the following youtube video- the instruction phase of removing the grille and access to the bulb compartment starts at 2:40

1. my microwave oven is switching on. 2. Time is also displaying. 3. The porblem when start the plate is not rotating. I am getting sound as usual.

The most likely problem is going to be the plastic drive hub on the floor of the microwave that the plate fits into in the center of the plate.It's broke and cant turn the check it remove the plate and use a screwdriver and pop that hub out by putting the screwdriver under the hub and pop it up,in the part of it thats hidden till it comes out will probably be cracked. If that hub is ok the motor it fits into is the next potential problem.
