• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

Ok I figured out how to remove the old door.
I opened the door and with a small right angle pick closed the cams on the open side and pressed the little button near the hinge a the same time to make it latch. Then just pulled the other side open, door is off!
On the new door make sure one side of the door cams are open and the other side are closed. Put the door on the side with the open cams. I think I had to mess with the buttons near the cams to get it to latch then Using the right angle pick I opened the cams on the other end of the door and then closed it. Door is on!
Now I need to figure out how to adjust it.
