I thought that if I went one more time to visit my son, and the microwave tray was still gone (due to their having broken it), I would just order the part MYSELF!! So, that is what I had to do. They have been without this for at least 3-4 months........ Well, it was sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after I ordered it! Easy, easy, easy..........thank you!

All the electrics worked on Amana microwave EXCEPT for the cooking function. Inspected the control board and found the upper switch on the door interlock was burnt. Installed new switch in minutes and everything now works fine. Unfortunately, had to purchase expensive two switch "kit" although only one switch was kaput. PartsSelect mailing was SUPER fast. Thanks for looking, Scott

After unplugging the microwave and removing the screw, I removed the old bulb and put in the new one!! I made sure it was in securely and the difference in the light was awesome! I use this light when I bake bread and let it rise inside the microwave, but DO NOT turn it on. The heat from this light helps the bread to rise properly!!

Microwave worked intermittently

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The door was not engaging the micro switches properly no doubt from 10+ years of wear. The upper switch removed fairly easily but take care not to tweak the plastic brace too much or it will snap. The lower one was the tricky one. After much examination I noticed that the trick to remove it was underneath the brace. Take a butter knife (no joke) and insert it just under the old micro switch and gently press down twisting the micro switch every so slightly til it releases. The replacements snap back in with no trouble. The microwave is working much better now, though not perfect.

Motor quit working but light and timer still worked.

Since others reported similar problems and it was just the fuse we tried that first. That wasn't the problem so we ordered the Door Interlock Switch Kit. Shipping was very fast! Our microwave had 3 switches. My husband asked how to know which one to switch. I read that one person just did process of elimination. Luckily ours worked on the first change out! So happy to have stumbled across this site and not have to buy a whole new microwave.

It wasn't so much a repair as a replacement. If I had only found PartSelect earlier! I made the huge mistake of ordering a replacement from Sears - since that's where I bought the microwave. The pictures on their website are blurry - it's VERY difficult to tell which plate is the right one. Of course the one I got wouldn't work, so I had to send it back. Except that it didn't come from Sears, it came from a totally different vendor and I have no idea if they will honor the return with a refund, because of 'restocking fees'. Oh well. I found PartSelect, and the rest is all good. Your website is great. I found the right plate immediately - the pictures are clear and you can SEE what you're getting. The turn-around time between ordering online and receipt of the plate was phenomenal! SO QUICK! Thank you, PartSelect for making it so easy for me! Y'all are the BEST!!!! Jerel

remove 4 screws from top, front louvered panel snaps out. remove 1 screw from top of keypad, keypad pivot's forward and can be removed. There is a white mounting bracket inside left. Remove two screws, one top and one bottom, bracket lifts up and out. 3 sets wires are attached, mark them with masking tape, top, center, bottom and pull out plugs. They can only attach one way. Using a very small screw tip, lift plastic latch from switch, it rotates out and is removed from the pivot pin. reassemble in reverse order after switches are replaced

Burned out bulb.

Did have a difficult time getting the old bulb out as it broke off in the socket. We disconnected the microwave to retrieve the broken bulb with a needle nose tweezer and then installed the new bulb in seconds. The plate glass cover was then placed back. Ended up vacuuming the ceramic stovetop due to broken chips of old bulb when being retrieved. Thanks for the prompt arrival of the new bulb. Hope it will last as long as the other bulb of 5 yrs.
