Default Kitchen Aid Microwave door spring
Model Number: KEHC309 JSS4   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I ordered replacement torsions springs for this microwave unit - the right hand blue tip broke so I bought a replacement (4452396) and figured I might as well replace the other one (4452395). The problem is the door flops open with these new springs, there's enough spring tension (and I'm sure it's really a blue tip spring). Are the manufacturing tolerances sloppy on these things . . . wondering if I should return them and try my luck with another pair. I see from other posts these things are "problematic" for many . . . I also note that some are replacing the pair with two medium strenth springs (4451009 which is a yellow-tip right hand spring) -- have others found that's a better solution? is the spring tension comparable to the springs that originally came with the machine? what's the appropriate corresponding left hand spring to use with 4451009 if I try that route?

Thanks for any advice on this topic!
