Product Description

This is a grease filter for your microwave and microwave/range hood combination. If your exhaust fan is not circulating air properly, your grease filter will need to be replaced. This part sucks dirt and debris from the air while you are cooking, keeping the air in your kitchen clean. A dirty or old filter will affect the efficiency of your microwave, and could change the taste or smell of your food. We recommend changing these filters every 6-8 months, depending on usage. This part is made of aluminum and is about 13.5 inches long by roughly 6 inches wide. If there is visible damage to the filter replace it right away.

    (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
