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.

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.

Simple. The parts came instantly. The glass was too big so I had it cut to size. I unscrewed the fixture with a screw driver replaced the bulb and slipped the glass cover into the frame and screwed the whole assembly in.

The handle had been glued on previously, and broke off when I grabbed it. The glue had traveled into the holes where the plastic extends into the door for the screws to grab, so getting the screws and broken phalanges out was not easy. Using needle nosed pliers and an awl to scrape out the old glue worked, but it took some time.
Once I was able to get the screws loose and pop out the broken bits, the new part fit perfectly and is working like new.

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!!
