Last week I removed the glass cover that was held in by one screw and removed the burnt out light bulb. I ordered the bulb and left the glass cover off until the bulb arrived. I had to wait until this evening to put the glass cover back on and fasten the screw because I have a window right next to the oven and the sun streaming in made it too difficult for me to see how to put the glass back in and replace the screw.

My microwave is built in above the stove which provides lighting and fans for my stove. The glass lens cover for the lighting was cracked in several places and the light bulbs had burned out. I taped the glass lens for removal so it didn't break apart due to the cracks Removed the one screw. .Both light bulbs broke away from the base sockets as I tried to unscrew them. I used electrical tape wrapping in reverse on a lightbulb (socket end) so it was sticky for a grip on the base, shoved it in the sockets and was unable to unscrew the broke off bases. So it was very successful and no repair man was needed.

Ordered and received two parts. Price was exceedingly high. $13.34 for a simple light socket and $7.05 for a 40W light bulb. The ;light bulb was received with a broken filament so was useless. Went to a local bulb show and bought a new bulb at a fourth of the cost of the Part Select website. As fpr installation, to reach the old bulb, had to take off the bottom of the microwave. Replaced the socket with the new one and put in the new bulb. Everything OK now.

Have a microwave that the light and sockets just broke in pieces so I ordered two sockets from this site . The fit perfectly and it was a breeze to install. Took out 7 screws and the plate dropped down, hooked up the little wire which was so simple and bingo I had lite again. I just wished the hold plate came down but it didn't but it was still very easy to install. Will continue to get my appliance parts from this company.

thank you for the video--very clear, responsible, applicable although the illustration was not exactly of our kind of light. the bulb was exactly like the one Hotpoint used in its microwave made in 1989! I will come back to you for parts in the future. (You have the model # from my original order.)

Ordering was easy! I used the model # on micro and found the diagram which told me exactly what I needed to fix it! It arrived in 2 days from when I ordered and all I really had to do was uncrew the old tap screws using a needlenose plier to hold sheered off end of plastic mount and phillips head to unscrew and then re install new handle! So easy! I didnt even need to wait for my husband to get home!

This repair was easy and could be done by anyone. If you undertake to do this replacement, remember to slowly bend the medal tabs back that hold the lens. Handled roughly these tabs could break off.

This repair can be don in under 5 minutes, easily !!
