The repair was very easy, however the bulb was not the same as the original one. The original bulb had a bright setting and a low setting, but the replacement bulb was only the low setting bulb. There was no bright and dim operation. The switch on the microwave had the duel settings.

With microwave still attached under the cabinets, I removed 2 screws for the top grill and then one screw for the bulb cover plate. This provided access to the bulb. The replacement bulb was a simple plug-in.

The best part of this experience was the exploded parts diagram on the PartsSelect web site which allowed me to easily locate and order the correct part.

Opened light panel and replaced bulb. Very, very easy.

I am concerned, however, that this bulb does not emit the same amount of light as the one i replaced. The item number is the same, however, so I am perplexed at this bulb efficiency.

I followed the instructions in the owners' manual on how to access the bulb. Installation was a breeze. I couldn't believe how fast I received the replacement bulb from PartSelect. I ordered it on line one afternoon and Fedex delivered it to my front door before 9:00 A.M. the next day. Awesome service.
