Left light socket was damaged beyond repair

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.

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.

Left light inoperable

Ordered and received two parts. Price was exceedingly high. $13.34 for a simple light socket and $7.05 for a 40W light bulb. The ;light bulb was received with a broken filament so was useless. Went to a local bulb show and bought a new bulb at a fourth of the cost of the Part Select website. As fpr installation, to reach the old bulb, had to take off the bottom of the microwave. Replaced the socket with the new one and put in the new bulb. Everything OK now.

Remove old light sockets and replace in microwave over stove

Have a microwave that the light and sockets just broke in pieces so I ordered two sockets from this site . The fit perfectly and it was a breeze to install. Took out 7 screws and the plate dropped down, hooked up the little wire which was so simple and bingo I had lite again. I just wished the hold plate came down but it didn't but it was still very easy to install. Will continue to get my appliance parts from this company.

Turn table motor was noisy and lights were blown

I was very surprised to find that the parts for repair were still available after more than 10 years use. I replaced the bulb light sockets because they had become brittle after 10 years of use. I replaced the wiring harness because it had become discolored at the light socket connection end. The harness still worked but I feel safer having a new one. I also found the GE parts site very easy to navigate and order parts from. Replacement parts were installed by using only a philips head screwdriver and removing/reinstalling 14 screws.
