Product Description

The grease filter in your microwave range hood is used to trap dirt and debris from the air that result while cooking. A clogged and dirty filter can decrease the efficiency of your microwave, can cause the exhaust fan to not circulate properly, or can change the taste and smell of your food. Depending on how often you cook, the filter should be replaced every six to eight months. This grease filter is a genuine OEM part that measures approximately 13.5 inches by 6 inches and is made of aluminum. This part is sold individually.

(2)-Repairs: Replaced Grill Vent, & replaced both 'grease' & 'charcoal filters
Grill vent: Cleaned area 1st. / Grill vent snapped in, and screwed in (2) screws. "Easy does it"! (otherwise you'll break the thin plastic tabs on top of the grill vent.) / Top of vent has (4) screws, so I put a touch of red fingernail polish on the (2) screws that hold grill vent in place, to identify which screws to remove-when I want to clean the inside again. / The grease filters slide out by pulling L-to-R & R-to-L. / The old charcoal filters are removed by pushing filter to REAR of unit, with front of filter dropping down to remove. Replace by doing the same thing to install the new filters.

Contractor didn't install the charcoal filters when house was built in 2003. One grease filter was bent at original installation by contractor.
Removed existing grease filters following instructions in the operating manual. Extreme care is required as the filters are not much thicker than tin foil and will bend very easily. The tab that you use to pull or push on the grease filter during installation is not designed to be pulled down like a pop-top on a soft drink can. Rather just use your fingers to pull or push on it without trying to bend it down. Bending it down in order to grasp it better will easily ruin the outer aluminum frame which was the original problem. The charcoal filters go in very easily without any particular "trick" to the procedure described in the operating manual.

Replaced the charcoal and grease filters and the fan vent grille
The old vent grille was already off so it was easy to place the new grille in place and tighten the screws. The only hard part about the filters was using the screwdriver to pry them a little in order to grab them to take out.

Change Grease Filter and Charcoal Filter
Slid grease filter to side and popped out then slid charcoal filter to rear and took screwdriver and popped down and out of channel. Pushed new charcoal filter into slots and slid grease filter into channel and pulled tab toward middle of frame to lock in place. Took 3 minutes to do. Very Easy
