I removed the door, by taking off the grill at the top. Then, take the puddy knife and screw driver and pry the facing off of the door. Please remember to be very careful because this is a sensitive piece. This is the most difficult part. It is a piece of cake after this. This should take about 15 minutes from beginning to end.

bulb and reflector assembly replacement

  • Customer: Joseph M from Northville, MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

When trying to replace the light bulb for the underneath night light, I damaged the female receptor plug by not inserting it gently and straight on, and thus couldn't insert the bulb. So, I had to replace the receptor which is part of a the reflector assembly with the small attached plug cord. Once I was able to unscrew the glass cover and move the existing reflector panel aside to see how it fit together, it went well and is now working fine. One hint in replacing bulbs is to order the correct one, since there is another bulb for the interior light for the microwave which uses a different bulb. Be sure to order the correct one. Also, push them in gently but firmly right on center.

Took item from sealed box and removed protective bubble wrap. Placed tray in microwave, aligning tray with turntable sprockets. Perfect fit, perfect match! And the part arrived in three days and was very competitively priced. What more is there to stay? Will use PartSelect for other replacement parts. No brainer!

When trying to run, intermittently, the light would come on but the tray wouldn't rotate or cook. When the door was open, the tray would intermittently rotate.

I pulled out the unit and found 2 interlock switches that are depressed when the door closes. After cycling the door open/closed I found that one of the switches occasionally would stay depressed. The repair was easy (after I took off the panels so I could get to the switch) I simply removed 2 screws that attached the interlock switch assemblies to the main unit. Then I popped out the defective switch and popped in the new one. This did indeed fix my problem.

Bottom door latch was broken. Microwave was dead.

Read instructions and viewed video. Project would have been very difficult without the instructions and video. Step 1 removed vent grill at top to microwave, by removing two scres. Step 2 removed microwave door by lifting. Step 3 used a one inch plaster knife to separate the plastic interior cover of the door. The video was most helpful. Use the thin blade of the plaster knife to locate snap locations of the plastic cover. Step 4 removed broken latch by applying slight pressure to the outside. Observed the attachment of the 'spring'. Step 5 installed new latch and spring. Step 6 reinstalled interior plastic cover. Step 7 install door. Step 8 install vent cover with two screws. Step 9 test unit.

My son said order it. It came a day later. Very cool. He took the door off and up to his room. No idea what tools except most likely a screwdriver. I asked him how did it go. He said it's good. Nice...
