Fixing a microwave yourself requires an extreme amount of safety awareness. Microwaves use high voltage and thermal radiation as normal parts of the operation. Careless handling, disassembly, and installation of microwave parts can result in injury or death. Be very careful when installing microwave parts. Do not deviate from the owner's manual instructions and recommendations, and above all, be sure to disconnect the unit before starting! Do not attempt to install microwave parts when you are alone in the house. If you should become injured or incapacitated, you will need assistance. Follow the safety precautions laid out in your owner manual and you can keep the safety issues to a minimum.
