There were globs of glue where handle was attached. Glue was brittle and chipped off rather easily. Ordered the new handle which arrived as the exact one needed and in 3 days with the lower cost shipping charge. The screws do not come with the handle but the old screws were still in the door and were removed easily with some needle nose pliers. Cleaned off appliance door and attached new handle in about 5 minutes or less. Used no new glue. A very easy repair.

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!!

Broken Light Socket

Turned the power to the unit off. Removed seven- (7) small screws from the base plate, not removing the rear screws. The plate dropped a few inches allowing me to get to the light socket. I removed one- (1) screw that allowed the socket to be removed. I then detached the two- (2) electrical leads. I now installed the new socket, replacing the leads and the screw along with a new bulb. I pushed the bottom plate back into the up position and replaced the seven- (7) screws. Turned the power back on and we were good to go.

Micrwave won't run - turntable turns backwards when door opened...

Most of the effort is simply getting the oven out of the built in enclosure and the sheet metal off. This take about 15 minutes then you have to remove the two screws (not handy location) that hold the door latch/switch assembly so you can remove the switch. I did this BEFORE ordering so I could test the switch (it was charred) and verify the part needed. WATCH OUT - some ovens use a normally open an some a normally closed version of this switch - you have to get the right one. I checked several suppliers that were showing the WRONG switch for my model. PartSelect had it right. Once I received the switch I had it on and the oven installed and running in less than 30 miutes. Working fine since then...

Took cover off, noted the two side by side switches easily visible and we hought one of these was responsible. Then son noted a third switch at the top of the plastic assembly which inserts at an odd angle. When it was inspected signs of a previous short showed up with burnt contact points. Reinserted at same odd angle as there were guide holes, closed things up and oven worked 100%. Great prompt service and great website!! We will use you again

had to use pliers to grab a nub of the plastic screw female that had broken off. Other than that, went easy. This is a product defect and not only should the part be free, but there should be a free retrofit repair.

Your part was here quickly and perfect.

Great job, thank you.

The repair was very simple. All we did was take two screws out and replace the handle and screw the new handle back on. That's it!!!
I thought the part was expensive but considering replacing the microwave it was well worth it!!

I went on the PartSelect page and found the model # for my microwave and ordered the handle. I thought I was going to have to wait for several weeks but it arrived in three days. The only glitch was that the plastic end of the broken handle was still attached to the screw and I couldn't get a grip on it in order to remove the screw...so I tried several different things... ultimately using a corkscrew to pierce the old piece of plastic handle thus allowing me to remove the screw and in two minutes I was able to replace the handle.
I can't believe it was that easy. Thank you.
