Removed one screw, slid frame out and removed broken glass. replaced bulb. The hard part was slidding the frame back in place and starting the screw. We were very surprised at the fast delivery of the parts, thank you. The sad part, a few days later the glass broke again. We are trying to get to the people at GE to solve our problem. We feel like that will not happen, we just do not have the time to stay on hold on the phone waiting for someone to solve our problem. Will reorder glass.

Took the front panel off, played with the switch while it was plugged in to verify the switch was bad. I actually was able to tweak the switch just right to keep the microwave working while the part was being delivered. When it came it was just removing two small screws and replacing. Very easy.

Handed the part to my son. He unscrewed 5 screws in the base of the microwave, it dropped down. The light mechanism was clearly in view. With the exception of some corrosion on the old piece, it was simple to remove and replace, put back together, screw back up and all worked fine.

door handle broke off flush with door.

Needed to jam another screw driver in to the plastic on the other side so I could unscrew the screws and get the old plastic sleeves out of the door. Once I got those out, the repair took all of five minutes. Beats buying a new microwave.

Light bulbs wouldn't come out of socket

I ended up breaking one bulb trying to remove a burnt bulb for replacement. We then tried removing the other bulb and it wouldn't come out either. I googled the problem and found PartSelect and an explaination of the problem. Heat from either the stove or the bulbs had fused the bulbs into the sockets. Comments on the problem explained that you just remove the bottome pannel (we had seven screws), unplug the old sockets, insert the new and new bulbs and reattach the panel. It was quick and no problems to correct. We did discover the microwave was on its own breaker, make sure to disconnect or cutoff power to the microwave before you start.

Microwave appeared to work. Fan worked, timer worked plate rotated. It just didn't heat the food!

I purchased the fuse and 3 door switches from PartSelect. Replaced the fuse first but that did not solve the problem. Then I replaced the 3 door switches and problem solved!! So fuse only cost $5.00 so glad I have a new fuse in there as well. To see how to replace door switches see videos on utube!!

Ordering was easy! I used the model # on micro and found the diagram which told me exactly what I needed to fix it! It arrived in 2 days from when I ordered and all I really had to do was uncrew the old tap screws using a needlenose plier to hold sheered off end of plastic mount and phillips head to unscrew and then re install new handle! So easy! I didnt even need to wait for my husband to get home!

This repair was easy and could be done by anyone. If you undertake to do this replacement, remember to slowly bend the medal tabs back that hold the lens. Handled roughly these tabs could break off.

We removed the screws, they were broken so we needed pliers to hold one end of the screw while we twisted the other end.
After that we simply screwed the new handle in.
I ordered exactly what I needed, the new screws were separate. But I looked at the pictures of the parts and made sure I had the correct parts to finish the job. I did. The parts were there in 2 days and we had the microwave fixed before Thanksgiving.
