My large baffle only has one screw holding it. Can I keep the baffle and only get the two screws I need to reattach it and how do I get to the area to fix it?
Answer Hello Dee,
Unplug the unit and open the door. Remove the screws that secure the door hinges to the front panel. Remove the door and "twist" the top end of the front panel to release it from the retaining tabs. Tilt the main front out toward you and lift it off of the bottom clips. Now remove the two 5/16 inch hex head screws that hold the clips on that are holding the main top down. Once these are off, the main top can be raised.
The baffle should be completely removed for inspection. If the holes are stripped, the baffle 33002032 will have to be replaced so it can hold the screw. The missing screws will, by the way, be in the bottom of the unit so you will not need to order replacement screws 33002973 unless you cannot find them. If the baffle seems to be OK, since the screw came out once before, squirt a dab of silicone sealant into the hold before reinstalling the screw to hold the baffle in place. This normally prevents the baffle screw from backing out again unless the hole is "wallowed out".
