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.

Were these instructions helpful?
removed electrical wires, unscrewed holder, inserted holder, attached wires, added bulb, and put cover back on.
Unscrewed bottom of unit; dropped it down. Replaced bracket, scocked and bulb. Easy job with the right parts.
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.
I used the internet and your directions to complete the repair. It was easy!
removed the bottom plate from microwave and replaced parts
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.
Thankfully I found this website and was able to understand how to find the part I needed and then install it. One you remove all the screws on the bottom the area where the socket goes is revealed, 2 screws to replace it, then you're done. I have light again, thank you!
Screwed in new bulb.
Tyring to get bulb out i ruined the light socket. Unscrewed the bottom cover of microware. Took out screw holding light socket, removed wires to socket with pliers, intsalled new socket. It was a piece of cake and the part was a perfect match.
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.
pluged wires back on ,placed lamp holder and bulb back and replaced screws
I asked a handyman at the local fitness center about repairing it and he refered me to your website where I found an exploaded drawing showing the parts I needed and how to get to them. It was great and very easy.
