I used the internet and your directions to complete the repair. It was easy!
Simply removed screw, pulled down light holder, unfoled the metal tabs, took out the broken pieces and replaced the glass lens and light bulb.
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.
removed the bottom plate from microwave and replaced parts
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
Removed difuser (one screw), removed old bulb, screwed in new bulb, replaced difuser.
Simple. The parts came instantly. The glass was too big so I had it cut to size. I unscrewed the fixture with a screw driver replaced the bulb and slipped the glass cover into the frame and screwed the whole assembly in.
took out several screws dropped down the panel under the microwave and unscrewed the bulb and put the new one in. It was a simple job.
Just unscrewed the screw holding the lens, unscrewed the bulb and put the new bulb in. Simple
put towel down not to lose the seven screws to remove drive motor. two screws to remove drive motor.replace motor and screws ,works now.
Once on your web site it gave me a skematic of my microwave which showed me how the parts connected. I saw how easy it was and I saw what type of bulb it was I ordered the parts and it took less than 15 minutes to repair. Thank you so much for your site, It is now on my favorites list. Doug
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!
changed the bulb
