Used butter knife to remove inner plastic strip to get to hidden screws. Dropped spring used on retaining hook to keep door closed, took 15 minutes to find. Had problem putting door back hinge supports. Had to remove fan cover and loosen top support to raise high enough to get door back on supports.

After closing door the display panel must be tapped on to keep the unit operating.

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.

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.

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.

Once I read more on Partselect about how others had removed adjacent parts, I found it extremely easy. I had previously thought I would have to remove the microwave from the cabinet prior to repair, but once I looked at Partselect's expoded view of the microwave, it all became clear and took me longer to clean up than the actual repair.

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!!
