The squrriel cage fan does not run when the unit is operated. If I turn the fan on with the switch it runs but is hitting something. I am unable to determine how to remove the cabinet so I can gain access to the fan so I am hoping you can help me. This is an expensive microwave The squirrel cage fan is hitting something which I believe is the reason so repairing it is certainly worthwhile
Thanks for any help.

Answer R. F. Tanner,
To remove the cabinet of the unit you will need to pull the unit down from installation. Once down you will need to remove the air grill. Once removed you will remove the screws around the back of the unit that hold the cabinet. Once removed you will slide the cabinet forward slightly to remove. This will give you access to the squirrel cage fan. This fan is the ventilation fan and will only come on when selected to come on.
