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.

All one has to do is use a screw driver to remove the screws, one per lens.
Then lower the lens bracket, bend the 4 tabs holding the
lens, remove and replace the lens and screw the brackets back in place.

While the handle was an expensive part, it was far, far cheaper than buying a new Microwave. Wrestling with opening the door (no release) was NOT an option!!!

The switches are not the problem! The problem is in the tolerences of the latch housing. I have ordered two new housings (Upper & Lower) and will see if the tolerences are closer. If not I will try epoxying a shim to the plate that operates the microswitches. The other option is to file the mounting slots of the housing to allow adjustment, which would be iffy,keeping them from moving with use. The exploded drawings really need to be clarified. The scale is way too small. It was extremely difficult to pick out the individual parts of the mechanisiam.

BURNED OUT (and broken) LIGHT BULB

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

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!
