Replaced the sockets, lens and bulbs. The first time the new bulb was touching the lens and the heat broke the lens and burnt out the bulb. The second time I adjusted the socket so that the bulb does not touch the lens.

Impressed by how quickly the parts arrived after the order was submitted. Two days.

Thank you.

Then lower the lens bracket, bend the 4 tabs holding the
lens, remove and replace the lens and screw the brackets back in place.

the top screw is plainly visible, the bottom screw is not and may give pause. If you remove the plastic ring, on the interior face of the door, it will give access to the bottom screw for the handle. While you have the handle off, remove the backing plate for the handle, on the front of the door by pulling outward, gently until it pops off. Then you can slide the front glass panel out and clean it. {CAUTION: do not spray any cleaner on the exposed glass with the mesh on it, it will be impossible to remove any liquid and will cause fogging when you replace the outer glass panel}. Replace clean glass panel, and handle backing plate, make sure it snaps in fully so the screw holes line up properly. Screw on new handle, replace plastic ring and you are back in business.

I looked at what others ahd said about the repair and just followed their instructions. Just took off the top screw of the handle, used a butter knife to pry off the plastic cover around the inside door and took off the bottom screw of the handle. Put the new handle on and put the screws back and pushed the door frame back in. Very easy to do and took very little time.

BURNED OUT (and broken) LIGHT BULB

  • Customer: WILLIAM from BONITA SPRINGS FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
With many thanks to those who posted their experience and advice replacing the bulb, I was able to remove 5 of the 6 screws holding the underside panel and remove the socket which contained the broken off base of the bulb and extract it with needle-nose pliers. I had broken off the glass portion of the bulb trying to unscrew it due to the awkward contortion of my wrist-hand-fingers trying to grip the bulb inside the tight recess the bulb is mounted in. After concluding that I needed more information, I did a web search for 'Hotpoint RVM1435' and found helpful advice at partselect.com telling me to drop the bottom panel. Good call! Thanks everyone!

UNDERNEATH LIGHT ON MICROWAVE WOULD NOT COME ON.

MY SON=LAW DID REPAIR BECAUSE i AM ELDERLY AND IT WAS NECESARY TO REMOVE THE BOTTOM PLATE OF THE MICROWAVE WHICH I WAS UNABLE TO DO. THE MICROWAVE WAS INSTALLED IN 1987 AND I BELIEVE THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME TO REPLACE THE BULBS. WHEN MY SON REMOVED THEM THE BULB WAS DIINTERGRATED. THAT'S HOW OLD THEY WERE. ONCE HE WAS ABLE TO REMOVE THE UNDERNEATH PLATE THE REPAIR WAS EASY EXCEPT FOR REMOVING THE OLD BULBS. I THINK THAT I COULD HAVE DONE IT MYSELF BUT HE WAS AVAILABLE AND I AM SURE IT WAS DONE MUCH BETTER. ALL IN ALL THE PARTS)BULBS) WERE CORRECT AND EVERYTHING IS WORKIIN FINE. THIS IS A GOOD PLACE TO ORDER REPLACEMENT PARTS. IN FACT I AM GOING TO ORDER A NEW CHARCOAL FILTER. HE TOOK THE LABEL OFF THE OLD ONE AND I AM ORDERING THE REPLACEMENT. AFTER ALL 1987 MAY HAVE BEEN A GOOD YEAR, BUT TIME FOR A NEW ONE.
