Good Afternoon Howard, thank you for your post!

I am happy to assist you. I understand you are seeking the exterior dimensions on your Frigidaire microwave, FMV157GM. The unit itself has a width of 29-7/8 inches and the height of 16-1/2 inches. The unit has a depth of 15 1/32 inches. I hope this information helps to some degree. If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to reconnect.

Hello Derrick Baker - Typically no fan should come on without starting the microwave. There is one exception! For an example, if the microwave becomes too hot from something that is cooking on the stove below the microwave, the fan will come on and will cycle off once the bottom of the microwaves cools back down. If the fan is turning on when the door is closed, more than likely, a door switch as failed. At this point, I recommend connecting with a certified technician to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

Hello Scott Noble - If I was in your position, I personally will recommend consulting a certified technician first for an accurate diagnosis. Depending on what part(s) is damaged from the door, the microwave could possibly have faulty switches, door switches, or latch which only a professional can repair.

Hello blackchow - Try resetting the unit flipping the household circuit breaker off or unplugging it. Wait approximately ten minutes and return microwave. If it proves to be ineffective, the unit could possibly be experiencing a wiring failure, faulty control panel or magnetron or an issue with the power supply. Contact a professional to move forward accurately and to assist with the repairs.

To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

This repair can be done with the door in place, or you can remove it for easier access. If you decide the remove the door, simply open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Some doors have a small hinge pin that has to be removed in order to remove the door. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, I found a replacement door handle at repairclinic.com for about $25. Look for item #1381096.

Hi - Possibilities of the turntable not spinning are either it is turned off, damaged or the support itself is damaged as well. Confirm that the power supply is not faulty or defective. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
