There is no repair story to share, I simply replaced the tray. However, I was very impressed with the speed that the tray arrived. I placed the order in the afternoon and the next day it was at my door waiting. This was the fastest delivery that I have ever experienced - at no extra charge. Also, the price of the tray was about $30 cheaper than ordering from Sears.

I ordered a glass microwave cooking tray to replace one that shattered over the Christmas holidays. Tray was sent out in a few days, but received in broken condition. After notifying PartSelect, another tray was sent out immediately. Everything went well and the folks at PartSelect were supportive and resonsive.

Installing a glass tray is no big deal, but finding it and at a price that didn't make me choke was a trick! I did that with you guys and I really appreciate it! Customer Service was amazing as well. The first shipment took quite a hit and the tray was broken. My response from you about my problem was quick.....and on a Saturday. I had another tray by Tuesday! Thanks!

One of the lenses was broken and a light bulb was burned out.

  • Customer: Michael from Grand Prairie TX

Using a #2 Phillips screwdriver and removed the screw that retains the lens frame around the broken lens. I also did the same to the opposite side (whose lens was fine but the bulb had been burned out for some time). With my fingers I pryed up the frame clips that secure the lens in place, removed the pieces of the broken lens, and replace the lens with one of the new lenses I had ordered. Although the bulb on this side was still burning, I replaced it with one of the two I ordered anyway. When I removed the bulb that was burned out, the glass separated from the bulb's base. However, I simply put on a set of tight fitting leather gloves and used my ring finger to apply pressure inside the base and it soon began to twist and then came out. This takes a little manual dexterity, but is very doable. If it were too tight, you could take a large "easy-out" tool (like the one to fit a 3/8" - 1/2" hole) and it would remove the broken base in short order. I had also ordered a second lens, but the lens on the burned side was simply dirty, so I cleaned it, put it back in place and saved the new one for a rainy day. By the way, BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THE LIGHTS ARE SWITCHED TO THE "OFF" POSITION BEFORE DOING ANY OF THE ABOVE. Also take care to clean the glass on the bulbs with denatured alcohol and handle them with clean cloth gloves or a tissue so as not to allow any oils to be on the surface when they are switched on. Body oil will immediately create a hot spot which will shorten the life of the bulb by at least 50% if not more.

As suggested, I placed a towel over the stove. Only had 3 main screws to remove from bottom of microwave. Dropped the bottom and changed the sockets and light bulbs. After replacing the bottom tray, I put the new glass light lens in. The clips on glass holder bent back like a photo frame-really easy. Turned on the lights and was done.

My son had to replace the bulbs because the screw that holds the bulb shield was so tight that I couldn't remove it. It was too difficult for me to do it myself.
