That must be some microwave!
I suspect it is a washing machine.
The kick cover is usually pushed on with poppers or clips. Gently ease it off from one end and you will see how it is fixed.
Hope that helps.

Microwave oven front panel not working


The contacts behind the panel get dirty and greasy and can stop working. Remove the front panel use a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol to clean the contact pads on the back of the plastic front cover and the contact pads on the circuit board. Reassemble and it should work. WARNING! Microwaves have very high voltages in them more than 4000V that can easily kill. Make sure its unplugged from the power supply, let sit for a few hours to make sure the caps are discharged and DO NOT touch any of the high voltage lines or capacitors inside the unit, work only on the front panel.

How do I open it up to look for a blown fuse to circuit breaker?


When you remove the front control panel you will see the two fuses in the next internal section. Below are instructions for removing control panel:

You can do this without removing unit from wall. First unplug unit. Next remove the two screws on the top of the unit closest to the front. These screws simply keep the up facing vent in place. Next slide the vent to the left (plastic latches on bottom hold in place) to allow vent to be removed. You should now see a single screw above the control panel. Remove it then open the microwave door. Gently slide the control panel up which will disengage the plastic latches on the panel sides. Suggest if you are going to remove the controller and replace take a picture before removing it so you know exactly how to reconnect all the wires.

How to clean the filters?


The only filter that you can clean are the ones on the bottom of the unit...but if they have never been cleaned it is better that you replace them. As for the carcoal filter, that cannot be cleaned it will have to be replaced. To gain access to this filter you need to remove the top panel across the front of unit. Two screws hold this panel on and once they are out you may have to slide it to the side slightly to remove.

I am getting an F7 error on my LG LRG30355ST Range. The panel is responsive to the Cancel/Off and Start buttons, but none of the other buttons appear to work. The burners still work, but I am unable to...


It means the keypad detects an electrical short. It's the equivalent of holding your finger to a number button for more than 40 seconds. It will cause an error. You have to remove/clean/repair whatever is causing the short. Try cleaning the front keypad with isopropyl alcohol. If it doesn't work, remove the front panel with a 1/4" socket wrench and T15 torx screw driver. Remove the LED/clock board with philips driver. Then clean the entire back of the keypad panel with ispropyl alcohol. Allow the alcohol to dry completely or use a hair dryer to dry the alcohol completely before plugging in stove again. I did this with my stove and it fixed the problem.

How do you get the front vent off to clean it. My microwave was manufactured in July 1993 and is an under the counter type?


Usually the manufacturer will provide a way for you to be able to remove it IF they would want you to (e.g. for cleaning purposes). If there's no instruction label for that, then don't.

Always check your manual for cleaning instructions. I found a manual of the same model and you can use as a reference for cleaning your unit.

My krups xp7200 is leaking water from the bottom. How can I open it to check the problem? thanks


You need to unscrew 4 screws in the front, three on the top (underneath the lid where you put the cleaning tablet), one inside the coffe container at the top, and pull gently, but firmly the little black nob inside the coffe container, that you use to adjust the coffee grinding, straight up. Then you can remove the coffee container on the top, and unscrew one screw underneath this container. Also, remove the two screws from the holes beneath the water container. NOW, you should be able to pull the front electronics off, and pull the main cover backwards, away from the front panel. You may have to bend it a little to get it completely off, but it is not a problem. Good luck! :)

Faceplate of door by lower L/H hinge cracked. How do I remove the door to replace the Faceplate?


Front doors are attached inside the microwave at the top and bottom of the oven cavity. Top case has to come off using, likely, security torx screw drivers.
Remove the top hinge.
Remove the bottom hinge.
Door falls off.
Replace the front panel of the door.
Reinsert the lower hinge with the door, close and latch the door.
Holding the door firmly to the microwave, tighten the door hinge. Replace the top hinge.
(On some units, both hinges need to be installed at the same time. Use masking tape to hold the lower hinge - makes it easier.)

Sharp R-24ST Microwave - Sticking START button


I had the same problem some years ago, and in my view it is caused by a design fault. There's a circuit board behind the front panel with tiny tactile switches that get pressed by the front panel buttons. But the **** design is that the switches aren't located behind the buttons, so the "engineering solution" that Sharp has used is to mount each of the buttons on a framework so that a sticky out bit from the button presses the appropriate switch. The problem is that the framework is made of plastic and so will eventually give way. Some 5 years ago I opened up my microwave and repaired the framework. When it went again yesterday, it was too far gone to repair. I could purchase a spare button panel from one of the spares suppliers, but for some GBP 8 or so.

Wanting an instant solution, I went a bit further. I removed the switches and soldered short trailing leads to their contacts. I glued (with epoxy) the switches back onto the circuit board so that they were directly behind the buttons, and then soldered the trailing leads from each switch back to the original switch locations. This meant redrilling the holes for one switch as the original holes were now obscured. I then cut off the three buttons from their framework (it was just the Stop, Start and Power level buttons as we never use the others) and trimmed off any projections to make them flush on the back. I filled the hollow of the button with modelling clay, and then expoxied a thin (2mm) layer of rubber on the back. When re-assembled, the buttons simply float in the hole in the front panel, but don't fall out as the switch is just behind them. They now work better than ever before, as they're pressing directly on the switch, rather than indirectly.

For disassembly (from memory), I removed the six or so screws holding on the main steel cover (at the sides and on the rear). There was one screw inside the casing securing the front panel assembly which, when removed, allowed the front panel assembly to be removed by lifting slightly and then pulling out. Disconnect the cable connectors (taking care to label where the yellow & red power connectors go. On the front panel assembley there are two circuit boards on top of each other. Remove the top one and the connector from it to the bottom one. The bottom circuit board is screwed in with 4 screws. Once the bottom board is removed, the button panel lifts out and you're ready to consider whether you're up to my repair method or whether you want to order a new button panel.

It may have taken me a while to complete this, but it gave me the satisfaction of a repair with no parts required, and the confidence that it will last, and can be tweaked if required. So my R24ST lives again!
