Sparked at the coupler, burnt

Using the exploded parts view I removed three Philips screws from the lower plate (the screws are located on the front edge of the panel that holds the air filters). Slide the lower panel forward slightly and allow it to swing down. Remove the amphenol connector to the motor and hood lights by pressing the sides of the plastic clip and place the lower panel to one side out of the way. f you intend to clean the lower panel in a dishwasher remove all electrical components before doing so (bend back the clips holding the wires in place and remove the lamps, remove the Philips screws holding the lamp holders); note: these are the only screws with a short shoulder on them, make sure they go back in the same place to hold the lamp holder to prevent damage to the holder). Remove the Philips screw holding the turn table motor in place. Slide the entire motor assembly to one side to allow the motor shaft to slide off the coupler. With the oven door open, remove the old coupling by sliding it to one side to clear the retainer. Insert the new coupling and replace the motor making sure you align the motor shaft with the flat side of the coupling. If you have cleaned the lower assembly in the dishwasher or by hand make sure all parts are dry before reassembly (reinstall the lamp holders and the wiring assembly. Reconnect the amphenol connector (it can only plug in one way by nature of design). Slide the back of the lower assembly into the channel at the back of the oven and replace the three screws holding the lower panel in place.
Now you have saved your self the cost of a service call or possibly a new microwave you can use this as supporting evidence that you can afford the new 20" monitor for your PC. Test out the repair and make your spouse a cup of hot coffee or cocoa to brag on yourself and make your sales pitch.

The replacement of the light no problem, the reason the light broke; problem. The original was glued in (for transport i think) and simply trying to unscrew it out (in a very tight slot) it broke; be careful or you’ll be buying a new $20 bulb (with shipping and handling).

Light Socket replacement

  • Customer: Jill from Arlington, TN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 5 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
I was told by 2 different appliance technicians that the crumbled/melted light socket could not be replaced which meant replacing the entire microwave (expensive!). Other posters on your sight described the repair steps and I gave it a try. The hardest part was probably figuring out which switch in the fuse box belonged to it (now marked clearly). It was a simple matter of unscrewing the bottom panel of the microwave to access the socket, pulling the crumbled/melted unit off and shoving the new one on. I can't believe the repairmen didn't want any part of even giving it a try.
