Disconnect power and remove cover. Hardest part was finding the proper drive for the two screw on the back/bottom cover. These screws are intended to keep end users from taking off the cover. Luckily I had a Sterling repairman with me and I borrowed his drive. Next take the two screws out of the switch housing. This housing will simple slide up and make it much easier to get the switch out. I tried to get it out without lifting the housing and I almost snapped off the plastic tabs. Of course don't forget to disconnect the wires from the old switch and replace when housing is back in place. Test it all before you reassemble. Make sure housing is in proper location, switch button is being depressed, oven works properly, etc...
Were these instructions helpful?
First got some general info from the internet, then removed control panel and saw that of the 3 switches the upper one had a faulty or broken clicker button and the other 2 were ok. So I ordered a switch from the site and got it in 2 days. installed the switch in maybe 15 minutes and put the panel back on and it now works fine. I did it myself, learned something and saved probably $ 150.00 bucks.
I unplugged the cord from wall outlet, so I would not get shocked. I unscrewed the two screws from above the door, and took off the bracket. Then, above the buttons was one screw holding it to the microwave. Remove screw and pull up on the buttons piece, and it comes lose. I let it hang. I unscrewed the door switches bracket (2 screws) and it came lose. I took The secondary door switch and monitor switch (look at both switches very carefully, there is a difference, where the wires attach to the switches.) are on the bottom(middle,and bottom.) and put back together in reverse order. All done! If by chance you open the door and turn table does not work. Replace the fuse behind the button piece. It works!!! All done
Open the door, remove the vent diffuser by removing the top two exposed screws. Remove the control panel by removing one screw now exposed from the removed diffuser, pull up on the control board to unseat, then remove the ground screw that keeps it tight to the switches so you can work more easily. The three door switches are easily accessible. Remove the two screws holding the latch bracket, pu the bracket out that's holding all the switches. Remove and replace the switches, then reassemble the microwave in reverse order.
