Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
The sockets for the bulbs that illuminate the stove under the microwave are both cracked and I think the wires for both sockets are exposed. After replacing one bulb, sparks and a blown fuse resulted from re-connecting the power. Do I have to remove the microwave from the way and take it in to shop to have these sockets replaced? Or, how can I get new sockets in place w/o removing the entire microwave?
This may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.

Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
Be sure to unplug the microwave before you remove or install the bulbs, or the control board (or you!) can be damaged!

You should be able to take the screws out of the bottom plate and remove it. Then you should be able to get to where you need.
