is that it?
hello

To remove the charcoal filter, disconnect power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel or pull the plug. Remove the top grille by removing the screws on top of the grille that hold it in place and sliding the grille to the left (opening the door makes grille removal easier). Slide the filter towards the front of the oven and remove it.

To Install Charcoal Filter To install a new filter, remove plastic and other outer wrapping from the new filter. Insert the filter into the top opening of the oven as shown. It will rest at an angle on 2 side support tabs and in front of the right rear tab. Replace the grille and screws.
