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.

took out several screws dropped down the panel under the microwave and unscrewed the bulb and put the new one in. It was a simple job.

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.

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.

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.
