I was very surprised to find that the parts for repair were still available after more than 10 years use. I replaced the bulb light sockets because they had become brittle after 10 years of use. I replaced the wiring harness because it had become discolored at the light socket connection end. The harness still worked but I feel safer having a new one. I also found the GE parts site very easy to navigate and order parts from. Replacement parts were installed by using only a philips head screwdriver and removing/reinstalling 14 screws.
