Replaced the sockets, lens and bulbs. The first time the new bulb was touching the lens and the heat broke the lens and burnt out the bulb. The second time I adjusted the socket so that the bulb does not touch the lens.

Impressed by how quickly the parts arrived after the order was submitted. Two days.

Thank you.

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.

Had to use a hammer and small screwdriver to remove some of the old plastic. If I had a small drill that would have worked better. Once I got that off is was easy to unscrew the old screws and replace the handle. It fit perfectly.

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.

Opened a beer. Removed the old handle. opened the next beer. Installed the new handle which was a perfect match. opened another beer. Sat down to rest.
The part was very easy to locate and order and even easier to replace. Although the beer part was not essential it certainly had it's benefits.

Many thanks for your great resource!!!

Underneath Light On Microwave Would Not Come On.

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. Mary
