I need to find a picture of parts for a Quasar microwave oven so that I can look at a part to see if it is broke. I am trying to fix this myself by ordering the part. I don't know anything about appliance repair but I believe I can do anything when I put my mind to it. At first I thought it was the handle but after comparing a picture of a new handle with my handle I realized that it is not the handle, it is the white plastic piece that the handle pushes up, from looking at it in my microwave with a flashlight it looks like a piece of the plastic has cracked off, I looked in the bottom inside of the microwave and there was a couple broken pieces laying on the bottom but nothing that was white, the pieces on the bottom could have been left there by my son-in-law during a previous repair he did on the handle. Does anyone know where I can see a picture of parts? I don't have the manual but hate to order one of the part is not shown in it. yes, I am a girl and I am just trying to save money on a repairman when it seems like a very simple fix, any help would be great.

Unfortunately it is not possible to find parts pictures for this brand. I found the web site were you can buy the service manual: http://www.servicemanuals.net/r...nd=110&model=MQ9998W
It might help you with repair advices.
What kind of a microwave it is?
A counter top or build in?
How old is it?
Microwaves today are absolutely inexpensive. A counter top microwave you can buy for much less then a hundred bucks and an over the range for a little bit more then $200. Is it worth to fix the old one?

I second Gene's submission that you may be plugging a leaking dike and you'll run out of thumbs. Also be advised that microwaves often have very well hidden and inaccessible interlocks that will wear out and make the unit inoperative. This is intended to protect users from exposure to hazardous RF energy. If the interlocks fail, the manufacturer may have figured the radio gaskets or shielding integrity are no longer serviceable either and the unit needs to be retired. Microwaves are like aircraft engines; making it work is not the goal. Fail-safe is the requirement.
