Super easy repair, getting the part was just as easy. I did a simple search with the model number and was able to verify that the part I was ordering was the correct one by using the many pictures and diagrams available.

BURNED OUT (and broken) LIGHT BULB

  • Customer: WILLIAM from BONITA SPRINGS, FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
With many thanks to those who posted their experience and advice replacing the bulb, I was able to remove 5 of the 6 screws holding the underside panel and remove the socket which contained the broken off base of the bulb and extract it with needle-nose pliers. I had broken off the glass portion of the bulb trying to unscrew it due to the awkward contortion of my wrist-hand-fingers trying to grip the bulb inside the tight recess the bulb is mounted in. After concluding that I needed more information, I did a web search for 'Hotpoint RVM1435' and found helpful advice at partselect.com telling me to drop the bottom panel. Good call! Thanks everyone!

Many months agoI replaced a bulb in the light and it did not work. After swapping bulbs with the light on the other side I determined it was not the bulb.

The cost for the replacement door handle is outrageous coupled with the overnight shipment I could have bought a band new microwave.

In any further repairs are required I'll deal directly with GE.

Door handle broke off.

First, I have to say I was amazed at how quickly we received the replacement part--it cam the next day and I didn't pay for extra shipping. Of course, this was a quick replacement part, since I only had to remove the two screws holding the old broken handle and install the new one. My husband couldn't believe it was already done the next day--we figured we wouldn't be able to open it for at least a week. Thanks! Also, it was easy to find the part on the website.

Handle broke - second time in the three years we have owned the house.

The repair took only a few ;minutes. Unfortunately it was the second handle I have replaced in the three years we have owned the house. It's an obvious design or materials problem and I see no way of lessening the force needed to open the door. Otherwise the microwave works very well.
