This should be a very easy fix. I assume you are talking about the plastic vent grill on the top of the oven above the door. There should only be a couple of screws holding it in from the top. The grill then should tilt out from the top first then from the bottom to remove. Since you said that it had fallen off, it sounds like the tabs where the screw holes are have broken off. This is a common problem. You can buy the part by ordering from the manufacturer, or from most repair websites. All you need is the model number from the microwave. Good luck.

I have a GE Microwave Model # JVM133OBW. The interior light went out. How do I replace it?

Typically you remove the vent cover just above the door that goes all the way across the top of the unit. There are 2 or 3 phillips screws in the front of it, or on top. You take out that plastic vent grill and look behind it. There is another screw in the center that holds down the panel the light bulb is held in. So, remove that screw and lift up on the panel holding the bulb. Make sure you unplug the Microwave before you take out the bulb. Sometimes the glass will seperate from the base and the wires inside will twist together and blow up your circuit bosrd. SO UNPLUG FIRST!!! On that top grill some have the screws on the Top of the unit, but you just have to find the screws that hold that top front grill in place. Some of the grills have to slide to the side a bit to come out. I am sorry I do not have exact instructions on YOUR machine. But it really is not that difficult. It could be a screw in type bulb or a small push in Halogen. Good Luck

I have a Panasonic Dimension4 Microwave/Convection (the genius) and the push button door opener malfunctioned I think the bolt in behind fell off and it is disconnected and is it fixable thank you

Unfortunatley Panasonic has discontinued a lot of those parts. All of those pieces are plastic. I have actually repaired a few of those release buttons and levers by modifying them and puttng a bolt where the plastic tab or nub sticks out. Basically it is a pivot point and it has to be in the right spot and supported. One hint, I have NEVER had success with any kind of super glue or plastic cement on that kind of plastic they use in there. Thats why I modify it and bolt in something to make it last. Fabricated to fit. Not easy. It is a shame they dont still have parts for them they were such great machines. Sometimes the tabs on the ends broke off or sometimes it is the end of the lever that breaks. Have to unplug and take off outer cover and go look behind the front panel at the door parts. Good Luck!!

I have a Panasonic Microwave Model NN-SD277. How do you access the workings of the door opener button? It is broken so the door won't open.

You have to remove the outer cover, the plastic lift levers are behind the door open button / lever. Caution!, panasonic discontinued a lot of those and getting a replacement part can be hard at times. Dont waste your time trying to glue it. After watching people try to glue or epoxy those cheap plastic parts for so many years. I have to warn folks to not waste your time trying. .It will not hold!!!! Look online and try to find a replacement part somewhere. It will be one of two parts. the door open button you push, or the door open lever that the front button pushes against. If you unplug the unit and remove the outer cover simply look behind the front control panel and when you push the button to open the door you will see where it is supposed to lift to open the door. The broke part is your problem, may be a piece laying in the bottom.

Remove two screws on top at front in order to remove plastic front vent grill. Then the door lifts off pin hinges. Lay door flat on surface. Plastic trim snaps off with gentle prying (start at bottom middle and bottom hinge side). Then remove six screws holding notched metal section with door latch.

My mocrowave fell and the front plastic on the door broke. The inside is not affected. Is it safe to use the microwave

The front plastic bezel on the door does not provide any shielding from the microwave energy inside the cooking compartment. As long as that is the ONLY damage and you haven't compromised the door, door frame or protective gasketing around the door opening then you should be safe.
