Bulb Finally went out

Used an apex bit unscrewed the fittingand down came the light cover. Pulled the old bulb out and had to use a flashlight to line the prongs up to install the new one. Whileeverything was down used an oven cleaner to degrease and clean EVERYTHING. You wouldn't beleive how much grease and debris will accumulate in 5 years. And I only fry bacon once in a blue moon. All in all it was simple to order, clean, and repair.

After removing the over-the-range unit (no small feat!) I had to figure out how to open the case (good puzzle!). Capacitor had already discharged, so it was very easy to reach in, pop the old fuse and install the new one! As per your advice, I found out I was a "28%-er"! Upon re-installation, the microwave "sprang to life"!! Thanks, "Part Select"!! I was already shopping around for a new machine! (Now if you could only tell me an easier way to re-mount this heavy beast over the stove!!!)

I removed the injured turntable driver . . . had lost one of its three legs due to some sort of uber-thermal meltdown! As a result, the microwave turntable was turning a bit, stopping, turning a bit more, stopping . . . I was concerned I wouldn't be able to find such a tiny little part, but voila . . . PartSelect had what I needed. Other than the cost (it's just a tiny piece of plastic!) and s/h . . . I'm happy to have a fully functional microwave back! I simply popped the new turntable driver into place and replaced the glass turntable and plastic ring.
