How do i replace smh9207st buttons


If you mean the 4 silver buttons on the lower right of the unit controlling the lite and fan, then see the instructions below...However, if you mean the control panel buttons in the door surrounding the clock display, then you and I are in the same boat. But I digress...

0. UNPLUG THE UNIT
1. 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.
2. Remove the screw holding the cover in place; you can now pull it away from the unit. You must disconnect the wires/plugs from the back. Take a photo for reference. One plug will remain: this belongs to the buttons in question.
3. Set it on a soft cloth to prevent scratching. Remove the screws holding the circuit board in place and the remaining plug; remove the board, then remove the metal tray/box underneath the board.
4. The PCB with the buttons is now visible. There are tabs holding it in place; gently pry them off and the board, a thin plastic shield and the buttons should come free.

Now you can clean/replace the buttons and/or the membrane buttons. 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)

Need to replace turntable drive motor. g.e. model jvm1533wd002


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven. In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

At our site, we have a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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

Sharp 1470 over-the-range microwave - no power on panel


Did you unplug any wires when you took it apart?

Otherwise, I would think one or more of the connectors got unplugged when you removed the control panel.

Another thing that can happen on these models is a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under thebottom edge of the switch. It's usually the top door switch.

You can find the wiring diagram at our site here.

After you look into this, if you still need help, please write back with more details.

Be sure the oven is unplugged.

There are two Phillips head screws on the very top of the outside of the cabinet above the vent.

When they're removed the vent grille just snaps out.

Panasonic - convection/microwave oven door is stuck shut spring will not open same -dinner in oven help


What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be
removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

I have the F2 error code and bought the switch membrane. Now I have the panel off but it appears the staneless steel cover is glued to the plastic inner panel and I did not want to pry it off and damage...


It would help for me to know your model number, but I'll tell you what I know generally.

Often the metal cover is held in place on the plastic control panel frame by several bent metal tabs which are visible from the rear side of the plastic frame.

You may have to remove your circuit board from the frame to see them and bend them straight so the metal cover can be removed.

The drawing below should clarify this.

I have a new Advantium Oven, and while I had guest here, someone heated a tomato based food in the microwave without covering the dish. Food particles have popped into the steel webbed covered light...


If a plastic scrubber won't clean it, then when it's dry, you may be able to place duct tape or packing tape over it, press and rub it firmly, and remove the tape. It may remove much of the debris.

A can of compressed air (in the computer section of Wal-Mart, for example) may blast out the bits.

If it resists all efforts, it may be necessary to take to the outer cover off, peel off the plastic light cover sheet, do the cleaning, then install a new light cover sheet.

No one at Delonghi will help, nor will Argos where product was bought. I just want to know if my microwave is safe (bought in May 2006) - the inside of the door (looks like a plastic covering) is bubbling...


There is a fine metal mesh / screen inside the door assembly.

If any of the holes in that screen are damaged or enlarged, then leakage is possible.

If the bubbling / deformity in the door keeps it from shutting fully and flatly, then leakage is possible.

If the bubbling / deformity in the door allows moisture to collect on or near the screen, it may lead to rust, which can damage the screen and lead to leakage.

Please feel free to contact me directly (especially if you include a few photos of the door) if you need more help.

Door Latch mechanism is broken


Normally on over the range models, you would unplug the oven from the wall, remove the 2 or 3 screws holding the top grille in place, remove the screw at the top of the control panel frame, then CAREFULLY lift up and out to remove it.
If it is a counter top model, you need to remove the outer cover before remoing the control panel frame.

If you can give us the full model number from the sticker, we might be able to give you more specific help.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
