Product Description

To access the exterior lightbulb, the bottom panel of the microwave will need to be removed. It is secured in place with screws, so will require a Philips screwdriver to remove it. Screw the new light bulb directly into the light socket. If this is the first time you have replaced this light bulb, the old light bulb might be held in place with silicone. This silicone will need to be cut off using either a utility knife or dental floss before removing the light bulb. Once this silicone and old bulb has been removed, the replacement bulb can be screwed in its place.

Replacing cooktop light… Do I remove the silicone piece ? OR leave it attached? Will silicone fall off when you use dental floss to unattached from old bulb?

Hello Patricia, thank you for contacting us. According to our research, there is no need to remove the silicone piece. Just use a string of dental floss to remove the old bulb, part number FIX2376034, and replace it with the new one. The silicone will not fall off during the disassembly process. We have also found a relevant video to assist you. We hope this helps!

The handel to my microwave had come off
I had some cracks in the front panel of my Microwave and the handle had come off when I tried to open the door. So I ordered the front panel and the handle for my microwave. I preyed off the front panel by placing the the screw drivers flat end under the lip of the front panel and gently prying it away from the metal door in a few seconds the panel was off. I got the screws off the old door handle and placed the new handle and took the glass from the old panel and attached it to my new front panel then placed the end of the panel at an angle starting at the end with hinges and pressed firmly with my hand also with the door open you can place you fingers around both the frame and the front panel to squeeze together and it will fit in place. Pretty easy for a amateur. The light bulbs I just replaced them one by one
