If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

How do i get into door to replace spring smh9207st microwave ?

You must remove & disassemble the door (I know, duh! :) ).

DISCLOSURE--I haven't replaced the spring, BUT, I did disassemble the door to get at the display board and in so doing, did see the spring/latch assembly. So, I can help with getting the door apart, but not the replacement of the spring itself, but from the looks of it, is should be pretty easy.

Total time: 1 -2 hours, 4 ice teas and lunch.

2. Remove the grill atop the unit; 2 phillips screws. Gently slide the grill to the left to unhook it from the unit. This reveals the screw holding the right side cover.
3. There are wires connecting the door to the MV. Reach inside and find the connector; it will separate with some squeezing.
4. The door will come off easily by lifting up at the hinge (be careful: there are cheap plastic parts around here).
5. Lay the door upside down. Remove the screws holding the handle on.

There are 2 plastic pieces between the metal handle and the door glass. They will probably fall to pieces when you take the handle off. Yes...this is the quality of plastic manufacturers use. PRESERVE THESE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, EVEN IF THEY ARE BROKEN. If you need to replace them, they are probably available and cheap. Or try and keep them,

Now the door can lay flat.

6. Now you have to get the plastic trip out. Some suggest a thin putty knife, or similar. Get it in-between the trim and the metal on the inside edge of the trim and the plastic of the door on the other side; there are simple tabs that hold it in. You're just gonna have to carefully feel around until you get an edge up. Then another. Once you get it going you'll be OK.

Once the trim is off, you should be able to get to the spring and do the replacement. If not, you may need to remove an additional piece of the inner door, held on by 4 screws and tabs you need to pry at with putty knife/flat screw driver. It was some hard work getting it off without breaking bending stuff and required some finger strength and stuff to prop it open on one edge while I worked on another.

Give the parts a good cleaning. Reassemble in reverse.

Cleaning tip: Scrubbing bubbles works great for cleaning icky kitchen grease, although it can leave a film (but it gets the grease!). Follow up with windex (but use a windex-dampened paper towel on plastic to prevent scratching)

I removed an outdoor light fixture on my garage to replace with a new one. It has a plastic box mounted in the brick .I disconnected the white and black wires and noticed the ground wire just lying in...

If your old light was all plastic, as I suspect it was, there was nothing to ground. Your new light evidently is all or part metal. Fasten all the green/copper wires together and make sure the metal bar inside, if one, is also connected. Use a wire nut to make the connections. My preference is to attach a separate wire to the metal mount bar and then fasten all three ground wires together using the wire nut.

I hope this helps you ... Thank you for your interest in

How do I remove the waffle grate plates from my Waring Waffle Pro? Can't find my manual.--Frank Davis

Here is how you need to replace or bring out the plates.

Make sure you are unplugged from the wall before doing anything or you will get shocked. You do not need to take the bottom cover off the base. You do not need to take the top plate apart (they super glued one screw in the top plate (lid), you'll strip out the screw head trying to remove it anyhow). All you need to open is the bottom plate, it has 4 screws in it you will see when you open the lid, these screws are not super glued and will come out. 2 on each side in the back, 2 in the center of the front, long screws go in the back, short in the front.

There are 2 white wires, 1 black wire, 1 green wire that run up the neck of the waffle maker to heat the top and bottom heating elements. The 2 white wires are neutral, the green wire is a ground, the black wire is power.

This black wire runs from the electronic control board in the base of the unit, up the neck in the rear, through a thermal fuse, to the bottom element then jumps up to the top element. All you need to take apart is the bottom plate, the part you pour the batter into. It has 4 screws you will see when you open the top plate up, take those out and you are going to find the black wire is covered by a white rubber like tube about 3 inches long. In the center of this rubber insulation there is a metal clip with a single screw. Take that screw out, pull off the metal clip and slide (don't cut) the rubber like insulation back.

You will find the black wire is crimped onto a silver metal bullet looking component. This component is called a "thermal fuse", its designed to fail at 240 degrees C. Its obviously a design flaw and the thermal fuse is under rated for the actual heat within the device. Its also a one shot fuse, so when it blows it kills power on the black wire from going to the top and bottom plates, thus no heat. It is not resettable.

I didn't even cut mine out (Waring is very skimpy with their wire, they don't leave you even a hint of extra wire to work with). I just tightly twisted the bare metal wire on each side of this component like a bread tie leaving the blown fuse in place. Then be sure to slide the rubber like insulation back over all of the bare metal so it is covering the black wire on both sides. If you don't it will short out and blow your house circuit breaker when you turn it on.

This thermal fuse was probably a requirement of the UL Listing. Its over kill, everything in there is metal so if it over heats in that area there is nothing flammable to burn. If a run away temperature occurs the wire itself will melt, short out and trip your house breaker. There are stacks of these units brand new with this same problem anyone reading this is having, the thermal fuse is under rated, the fix is simple

Thank you for contacting

Can't get handle off to replace

I am not sure if I can picture the problem but I do know that if they put it together, it can be taken apart. I usually fall back on that. It just takes a lot of studying how the thing is put together. If they put the glass in, it can be taken out. And as a last resort, i would just call the store where I got it or else type into your search engine something like the following---- (your brand of microwave and the model) disassembly of door--------or------replace handle on my (brand and model). Ought to give some answers.

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

The outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, and a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

The door will not latch

The latch head (with hooklike projections) have a spring to keep it pulled down. If the latch head can be easily pushed up and falls back freely, then the monting tab on the back of the latch head is broken and it will have to be glued or replaced. The new part is better. To get to the door screws inside, you have to remove the choke cover, as shown in the photo. You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at
