Took the front panel off, played with the switch while it was plugged in to verify the switch was bad. I actually was able to tweak the switch just right to keep the microwave working while the part was being delivered. When it came it was just removing two small screws and replacing. Very easy.

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!!

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.

Removed the screw from the broken piece. Put the new handle in the proper location and screw it tight to the door. It is like new now and my wife is very happy to have it ready for the holidays.

When the handle broke again, I had to remove the old glue. That part was the most difficult. After that, it was a snap to install the new part. I was a little afraid that I may have ordered the wrong part but there was a 30 day return policy so I went ahead and ordered it. My son was so proud that I had fixed it myself!

I ordered the part and received it within 2 days, despite my expectations of one week. My husband undid the screws, attached the new handle and screwed it in. It was that simple! And to think that I was ready to phone an appliance repair man!

Broken door handle needed to be replaced

The door handle on the microwave had broken at the bottom fastener, and several glue repair attempts had proved futile over time. After removing the existing handle, I needed to bore the existing hole a little, to remove glue and plastic remnants. So I used a 5/16" drill bit and bored the hole to a depth of about 1/8." Once this was done, I used the existing fasteners and attached the new door handle. No movement in the handle when the door is pulled.

Because of it's age and my memory of it's wall installation problems, I was extremely happy to find the parts. Merely popped the old "fried " support bracket out, snapped it the two replacement brackets and I was back in business with a "new" spark free appliance. Thanks ever so much! Smooth, "no brainer" installation! Extremely pleased with results!
