I am looking for a part that covers the fan Inside the microwave. It is round. I believe it is metal. With this cover missing I am having sparks inside the microwave when I run it. What part do I need?

Hello Christine, thank you for your inquiry. The inside fan cover( fan stirrer cover) is PS12071371. It is white, round and between 6-7 inches round. We do have a photo on the site. We hope this helps.
How do i get to where the fuses are. I have the Microwave off of the wall and need to check them. Do i need to take the shell off?

Hi Lynn, thank you for contacting us. According to our research, the fuse is attached to the noise filter. To check the fuse, you may need to access the noise filter. We have found some relevant instructions to access the fuse. These instructions may not be of the same exact model, but will help you with the process. Disconnect power to the microwave. Un-thread the screws securing the grill. Open the door and slide the grill to the left and lift it up. Remove the bottom panel by un-threading the mounting screws. Disconnect the wire harness and release the wires from the retainer. Remove all the screws securing the cabinet. Release the energy stored in the capacitor by touching both the terminals of the capacitor simultaneously using insulated plier. You can see the noise filter there. Release the noise filter by removing it from the mounting pins. Check the fuse and follow the same instructions backwards to install it again. We hope this information helps!

I first removed the top plate above the microwave door (3 screws), then I removed the plate containing the buttons and clock. The microwave has 3 relay switches and they are in a little holder. The holder was too difficult to remove so I just removed the bottom switch and replaced. The microwave started right up.
Removed the 3 screws to drop the lower panel and, removeed the turn table plate and ring. Then removed the 2 screws holding the motor, the 2 wires attached to the motor and removed the old motor.Replaced the new motor in the reverse order. DO NOT FORGET TO UNPLUG THE MICROWAVE FIRST.
was told buy a repair person to check the door micro switches as it was a common problem. removed the top plastic air grill to get access to the screw that holds in place the control cover. After unplugging the unit, i took out the (2) screws that held in the switches and removed them (3). One switch was a bit melted so i tested it with a 12 volt battery and it was bad. Ordered a new one from Part select and got it fast . Works great .
