Switch,Micro

This microwave door switch provides power to the various components in the microwave when the door is in a closed position, and interrupts power when the door is open. This door switch is approximately 1 1/2 inches long, and has 2 metal prongs called terminals that extend from its body. If your microwave will not turn or heat properly, there could be an issue with the door switch. You can check the switch for continuity using a multi-meter. With the actuator button depressed, you should see continuity between these terminals. If there is no continuity the switch will need to be replaced. NOTE: Before you begin this repair, first make sure your microwave is unplugged, and that your capacitor is discharged. A capacitor stores large amounts of electricity even when your microwave is unplugged.

Lamp,Halogen

This is a halogen lamp, or light bulb, for a microwave. The microwave light should illuminate the inside of the microwave while the door is open and while the appliance is running. If the light bulb does not illuminate, you may need to replace it. This part is sold individually. It is a common wear part and does not have a standard light bulb base, so consider ordering a spare. This part is made of clear glass. If the glass on the existing light bulb is broken, you may need to use a pair of needle nose pliers to remove it. Be sure to handle the broken part with work gloves and disconnect power to the appliance before changing the bulb.

Problem was due to a faulty door switch. Replaced with a new switch and the microwave now works fine! Only thing that was tricky was that LG uses the hex screws with a peg in the middle to keep the microwave cover on. Had to use a small screwdriver and pliers (on the screwdriver) to unscrew the screws. read more
