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 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.

Removed the 2 screws at the inside of the microwave door-can't miss them, removed the handle. I think it took more time to clean the area around the handle on the front of the door than it did to replace it. Anyway, held the new handle in place and re-attached the 2 screws and it was done.

Right hand surface lamp burned out. It apparently fald up and broke the glass cover. I wne on line when I found out the only local deaaler was some miles away and more expensive.

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.

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!!

First I removed the two screws that held the handle on. Then I laid the handle down in the way it was on the microwave to be sure I didn't put the new handle on up side down. It appeared only one way to put the handle on. The screws were a little difficult to screw in all the way. First time doing something like this and I was afraid I'd break the new handle. So I had my son to help. No problem once the handle was attached properly. Thank you so much for the quick delivery. The handle works perfectly now.
