Simply unscrew the bottom panel of the microwave device (it swings downward when opening - there are hinges on the back to protect it from falling down). Remove the old light socket (which is modular and is screwed in place)from the connectors and then replace it with the new light socket. That's it

Handle broke on microwave

The handle to my microwave came off in my hand. On inspection, I could see that the original worker had stripped the threads and/or split the handle on the bottom and super glued it as a repair. Either way, a substandard job had been done in configuring the original equipment. Once I had the part, I used a dremel tool and a very thin knife blade to sand and scrape the old super glue off the door--which took a while. Then it was a five minute job to put the new handle on using only a screw driver.

Microwave would not turn on

  • Customer: Prashant from Dardenne Prairie, MO
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

Microwave would not turn on. Lights and fan worked fine. Before the microwave stopped completely, it would turn the microware fan on even when door was open. I read the reviews and they were exactly the same issue that others were facing. Once I opened the front panel and got to the switches it was easy to figure out which switch was bad as it was the one that was soft (When clicking it). It was hard to take it out though (it seemed stuck). So, I used a plier to yank it out. I put in the new switch and everything worked just great! I would like to thank other comments that were left on the site to make my task much easier. Thank you (to the commenters on PartsSelect), you not only saved me money, but also ensured that I learn about the microwave more and give me the confidence that I could fix it.
