Light Socket replacement

  • Customer: Jill from Arlington TN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I was told by 2 different appliance technicians that the crumbled/melted light socket could not be replaced which meant replacing the entire microwave (expensive!). Other posters on your sight described the repair steps and I gave it a try. The hardest part was probably figuring out which switch in the fuse box belonged to it (now marked clearly). It was a simple matter of unscrewing the bottom panel of the microwave to access the socket, pulling the crumbled/melted unit off and shoving the new one on. I can't believe the repairmen didn't want any part of even giving it a try.

Removed the 7 screws holding the bottom of the microwave cover, also opened the access covers to the lights. Damaged socket was easily replaced along with both bulbs and the broken lens, then resecured the covers. Top front cover was removed (2 screws) and the new filter was inserted, then the cover replaced. Very easy, about 15 minutes, without any injuries!
