Kovi for Model Number MH7140XFQ-1

ANSWER Mike, Here are the basic instructions from the service manual, but you can try to do the repair without removing the door. " Removing the Door and Door Disassembly 1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power. 2. Remove the air grille. 3. Remove the 1 T-10 Torx® screw from the top hinge of the door. 4. Lift the door up and off the other hinge to remove the door. 5. Place the door face down on a protective surface. (All removal procedures assume the door is face down with the handle to the left.) Choke seal removal: 1. There are 4 tabs on the top edge, 3 tabs on each side and 5 tabs on the bottom edge. 2. Use a putty knife to open the gap between the door frame and the choke seal. 3. Locate each tab and use a flat blade screwdriver to gently lift the choke seal and release each tab. Place the screwdriver in the slot directly beside each tab and lift from there. 4. Only lift enough to release each tab all the way around the choke seal to avoid bending and possibly breaking the choke seal. Inner door removal: Beginning at the bottom left corner, work your way across the bottom edge to release 4 tabs. Release 3 tabs on the right edge and 2 tabs on the left edge. Gently lift the inner door from the bottom edge to release the 4 clips along the top edge. Handle removal: 1. Remove two screws from the door bracket that secure the handle to the front of the door. The handle can be replaced without regard for orientation of top and bottom. Outer glass removal: 1. Press the 5 tabs at the top edge of the outer glass that secure it to the door frame. 2. Lift the glass at the top left corner just enough to slide the glass to the left and up from under the tabs on the right and bottom edges." Good Luck and Thanks
