Burned out (and broken) light bulb

With many thanks to those who posted their experience and advice replacing the bulb, I was able to remove 5 of the 6 screws holding the underside panel and remove the socket which contained the broken off base of the bulb and extract it with needle-nose pliers. I had broken off the glass portion of the bulb trying to unscrew it due to the awkward contortion of my wrist-hand-fingers trying to grip the bulb inside the tight recess the bulb is mounted in. After concluding that I needed more information, I did a web search for 'Hotpoint RVM1435' and found helpful advice at partselect.com telling me to drop the bottom panel. Good call! Thanks everyone!

Light bulb was burnt out and lens was broken

Unscrewed the lens, it hinged down, then I could remove the frame. Pulled old bulb out and replaced with new one. Replaced broken glass in frame. Reset hinge into the holes and swung it up into place. Screwed it in.

Very easy!

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.

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.

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
