If you go to the following website and enter the model number of your microwave, you will get some diagrams and parts lists for your microwave, if they have them, and they usually do:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/
You can identify the part in the diagrams, and the parts list will have the number. You might check with an appliance repair shop first to see if it would help to buy a new part.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Sometimes with Dell laptops, the keys on the keyboard gets stuck or damaged or fells off the keyboard. There are many different ways to repair your broken keys. Just put your mind to it and you will be able to repair it yourself.

You can place an order to replace your broken key or you can repair it you have all the parts intact.

You should have a key cap, 2 or more retainer clips (plastic pieces), which goes under the key cap.

Following is the installation guide to replace and repair Dell laptop key.

To install your key on your laptop keyboard, start out by observing your metal plates on the keyboard.

Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard.The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.

Here you can see that it has one large metal hook at the top and two metal hooks at the bottom.

Take the larger plastic piece and observe that it has two larger sticks at the bottom, two holes at the middle and two shorter sticks at the top. The bottom sticks are going to go into the bottom metal hooks. The smooth part faces away from the keyboard.

Take the smaller plastic piece and observe that it has a small bar at the bottom, two sticks at the top and two sticks at the middle. The sticks in the middle are going to go into the middle holes of the larger piece and the bar is going to click on to the top metal hook. The smooth part faces away from the keyboard.

How do I replace the turntable motor?


Roger, lay your microwave on it's back after taking your turntable plate out of the microwave. Looking at the bottom plate you should see in the middle an area that covers your motor that should be square, a rectangle, or a circle. There usually is also a screw that is just screwed into the bottom plate. Around the middle part, whichever shape it is, there will be a series of small holes with a thin piece of metal going between the holes, get a pair of side cutters and snip the thin strips of metal and that will give you access to the motor when they are all snipped out. To replace it you usually just have to turn the plate 180 degrees and use that screw to hold it back in place. Hope this helps.

Microwave lights, clock, and everything works except when you press start, it just counts down like its cooking, but the microwave is actually not on. No hum as usual or plate rotating. It just counts...


Hi, one of the most common reasons why the turntable won't rotate is that the microwave isn't clean. The turntable guide and carousel can get sticky, preventing the turntable from properly moving. If you have built-on food particles or liquids, fill a bowl with 2 or 3 cups of water and 1 tsp. of liquid detergent and lemon. Run the microwave for about 3 minutes. Clean the microwave with a cloth, including the base of the turntable, guide, carousel grooves and microwave base. Your microwave turntable won't rotate if the grooves on the base of the turntable do not sit right on the carousel. Also, check the position of the turntable guide. Place the guide directly under the turntable. Remove the turntable, and then reposition it into the carousel grooves.
Motor The carousel motor is located beneath the base plate of the microwave. If the carousel isn't turning at all, check the motor. Disconnect the microwave from the power source, and remove the turntable, guide and base plate. Try turning the motor to see if it's just stuck. If it doesn't turn freely after a few seconds, examine the motor to see if it's burned out or corroded. Use an ohmmeter to see if the motor has continuity. If not, you must replace the motor.
Bushings The drive bushings are plastic components that sit underneath the cooking plate. Remove the plate, and examine the bushings. Use a magnifying glass if necessary to see if any debris is caught in the plastic. Clean the bushings, and reinsert the plate. Turn the microwave on to see if it rotates. If the bushings are extremely worn or if some of the plastic is broken off, you need to replace it, which is a complicated repair for consumers. Contact a service technician for assistance.

Replacement of the Cover Inlet plate inside the microwave, this is part # 8184604. I have the part, I just need to know what to do to replace it. Thanks,


Hi


To locate the inlet cover, look towards the interior side of the microwave next to the microwave display. The inlet is typically located near the back of the microwave, in the middle of the wall.
Unplug your microwave from the electrical outlet and remove any food or containers.

Wipe the inlet cover, typically located on the right side of the microwave in the middle of the wall, with a damp cloth. The cover must be kept clean or it will not protect the microwave.

Dry the inlet cover with a soft towel.

Leave the microwave door open for several hours to air out the inlet cover.

Examine the inlet cover for wear and tear. If the cover has too much damage in the form of scratches or holes, it may need replacement.

Remove the inlet cover, if desired. Insert a putty knife under the plastic nail that holds the inlet cover in place. Pry out the nails and set them aside. Pull out the micro plate in front of the inlet and set it aside. Remove the inlet plate.

Install a new inlet plate. Slide the new inlet cover into its place. Replace the nails back into the side of the microwave by aligning them with the holes of the side.

Hi:
The plastic piece is wedge shaped with a machine screw that runs down the middle. Your battery has a ridge that should lock under the edge of your metal battery tray, so the plastic wedge should force the battery back towards the edge of the metal tray.

Don't turn the dishe


there are 3 things that can be wrong 1st the stepping motor under the plate could be broken the motor is made up of lots of plastic gears to get to it you will have to turn the unit on its side so you the bottom of the unit remember to take the plate out 1st in the middle of the base of the unit you will see a panel where the motor is this needs to be cut out to gain access to the motor this will have 1 screw holding the motor in place 2nd and while you have the motor out you need to look at the coupling thats the part that the plate sits on as you remove the motor it will fall inside the oven pick it up and look to see if it has a split in the side as when the motor turns if the coupling has a split in it the motor wil just turn inside it 3rd the motor may not be getting any power from the pcb but u will need a test meter for this so try 1 and 2 thn if tht doesnt work it will need to go into a shop

Convection microwave turntable does not turn. Makes a clicking noise.


Try removing the turntable plate, and then lift up on the roller assembly that the plate sits on. These roller assemblies are usually made of plastic, and often times the center "axle" (the part that goes down into the hole in the bottom of the microwave) breaks or cracks. If it looks like this piece is cracked or broken, just take it down to an appliance repair store (or just write down the model # of your microwave and bring it with you). Replace the roller assembly, and you're good to go.

You can also find these roller assemblies online pretty easily as well, and they're usually under $10 USD.

Good Luck.

I have a GE Profile JVM1790 microwave that needs to be installed. However, it will sit in front of a 3/4" thick granite backsplash that I would rather not drill holes through. Would it be safe to mount...


The front weight hangs from the cabinet above the microwave, the rear weight needs support also. It is intended to be fastened to two studs. If the granite does not go all the way up to the cabinet above, install a wood spacer, the same thickness as the granite, then extend the wall plate, at the corners, with some flat stock aluminum strips, available at most hardware stores. Fasten the aluminum strips to to wall plate with short machine screws. - If the granite goes up to the cabinet bottom, shim out the bottom frame of the cabinet to the face of the granite and use the same aluminum flat stock to extend the wall plate up to the necessary location.

Hole in plastic on inside of door


check the conductivity of the plastic with an ohmmeter by placing the probes an inch apart on the plastic surface. If the resistance is large or infinity, the plastic probably performs no role in stopping the microwave radiation. If so, any epoxy probably can be used to close the hole safely. Make sure you don't use too much and if possible place tape over the repair and orient the microwave so the epoxy presses against the tape while drying to prevent it from oozing into any door hinge/close mechanism. Otherwise, a piece of microwave door glass from a broken unit can ge glued over the hole and should stop the radiation. You can check for leakage with test units but be very carefuly anyway.
