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.)

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.

Removed the 2 screws at the inside of the microwave door-can't miss them, removed the handle. I think it took more time to clean the area around the handle on the front of the door than it did to replace it. Anyway, held the new handle in place and re-attached the 2 screws and it was done.
