OMG! I wish everything in life were so easy.....The cooking tray of our 15 year old microwave cracked and I swore it'd be impossible to find a replacement. That is until I discovered Partselect.com!!All I had to do was input the appliance brand and part I was looking for, and there is was. Thank you, Partselect.com!!

remove one screw from light and remove bulbs replace. I found the light plate had a lot of grease on rubber type washer for the glass cover. I cleaned it as best I could. The real trick was putting the screw back in when the Microwave is in with the hood Fan and the screw must go straight up and not miss the hole. I had someone hold the plate up and the screw went in. Your instruction book shows your filters and how to clean them. They are easy to and clean. What I found best is the lights they had been in for 15 years and the new ones are so much brighter. I now have an old set of filters that can be put in the dishwasher and used as a replacement when the new ones need to be cleaned.

All the electrics worked on Amana microwave EXCEPT for the cooking function. Inspected the control board and found the upper switch on the door interlock was burnt. Installed new switch in minutes and everything now works fine. Unfortunately, had to purchase expensive two switch "kit" although only one switch was kaput. PartsSelect mailing was SUPER fast. Thanks for looking, Scott

My wife was pushing a few buttons with her knuckle (hands were full)and the microwave just turned off. Just like we had blown a breaker. First I unpluged it. Then I removed the phillips screws of the front panel, and found and removed the ceramic fuse. 3 days later I received the new fuse in the mail, and put it in. I plugged the microwave back in and it works great.

I bought the stir cover replacement (package comes with 2) and two rivits (didn't fit). I pulled off the original cover and pulled out the rivits (easy peazy). The stir cover fit perfectly but the rivits were too big (and I tried everything to get them in but destroyed them in the process) so had to reuse the original rivits (thank heavens they didn't break). It took me more time because of the oversized rivits but the microwave worked great now.

Replacement of hood light bulbs

Unplug the microwave. Then remove the six screws that hold the lower panel which has the light bulb cover and a couple of vent filters. The light bulb sockets are on a fixture that is connected by a quick connect electrical connector. Disconnect that and the whole panel is free to access the bulbs. My bulbs were very fragile and trying to twist them out resulted in the glass twisitng loose with the base still in the sockets. I needed to use a needle nose pliers to remove the bases and then I replaced the bulbs and put every thing back together

The door was not engaging the micro switches properly no doubt from 10+ years of wear. The upper switch removed fairly easily but take care not to tweak the plastic brace too much or it will snap. The lower one was the tricky one. After much examination I noticed that the trick to remove it was underneath the brace. Take a butter knife (no joke) and insert it just under the old micro switch and gently press down twisting the micro switch every so slightly til it releases. The replacements snap back in with no trouble. The microwave is working much better now, though not perfect.

I didn't do the repair -- my husband did, said it was easy, had no problems what so ever! The new bulbs give a lot more light to the cooking area.

Motor quit working but light and timer still worked.

Since others reported similar problems and it was just the fuse we tried that first. That wasn't the problem so we ordered the Door Interlock Switch Kit. Shipping was very fast! Our microwave had 3 switches. My husband asked how to know which one to switch. I read that one person just did process of elimination. Luckily ours worked on the first change out! So happy to have stumbled across this site and not have to buy a whole new microwave.
