Problem would come and go. Found service schematic inside unit. Perform all the suggested tests. One possible solution was the primary interlock switch shown on the schematic and a check found the switch stuck. It would free up some times but would stick again in the open position. Ordered switch which was a simple plug in unit.

1. Removed cabinet screws (10-15?). 2. Removed cabinet. 3. Removed top interlock switch which actually was not defective. The press clip connection appeared as if it had been arcing for quite some time and the corrosion created resistance sufficient to prevent the current from getting through the switch. 4. Replaced switch anyway but broke plastic retaining clip despite every effort not to do so. Reset broken clip with super glue. 5. Reassembled cabinet and appliance is in good working condition.

I thought that if I went one more time to visit my son, and the microwave tray was still gone (due to their having broken it), I would just order the part MYSELF!! So, that is what I had to do. They have been without this for at least 3-4 months........ Well, it was sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after I ordered it! Easy, easy, easy..........thank you!

removed old covers which were cracked and dirty.
the repair part looked exactly like the original but did not fit correctly. i had to do some changing of the size to make it fit. it does not clip in place as it should but we are living with it as it does cover the light bulb. the grease filter is perfect

The cover to my lamps both broke.

After reading on-line about other Amana microwaves, that said the arching was probablly due to dirt or grease & I knew it wasn't dirty, I decided to try the sandpaper recommended to clean the carbon from the wall where the shelf holder had burned several years ago. This caused the remainder of the clip to become loose. I then took a sharp knife & popped the clip out which left a neat square hole which your shelf holder popped right into. The filters were an afterthought because I didn't want to pay shipping for only a $2 item
