Donna, I would use crazy glue or similar strong glue. I think it should be safe but read instructions.

Light bulbs in built in microwave have come apart when we tried to unscrew them for replacement. How can we get the broken end of the light bulb out of the sockets?

Most Samsung microwaves use a bulb and bracket assembly that is meant to be replaced as a unit, not disassembled (see image). If the bulb base was secured using epoxy or some other means, it may not be possible to remove without damaging the bracket.

That said, you can try traditional methods for removing broken light bulb bases. Remember to always unplug the fixture/appliance, or shut off and mark the breaker serving it, before working.

A cut potato or carrot can sometimes be pushed onto the broken glass left in the base, to provide a handle for unscrewing the base. On smaller bulbs, I have successfully used the eraser on the end of a pencil.

If the bulb was really stubborn, I would probably try filling the base with a hot glue gun, then pushing a screwdriver into the soft glue. Once the glue hardens, turning the screwdriver should unscrew the bulb base (if it is at all possible).

As you may have discovered, pliers and the like tend to just break off small pieces of the broken glass bulb.

How to repair cracked plastic rim on outside of door? Is it safe to use crazy glue?

Yes, crazy glue is safe -- suggest letting it dry 24 hours before using oven. The heat could generate eye-watering fumes.

I covered the plate with 'heavy duty aluminum foil' thinking it was safe for for microwave use, then I saw a sparkle inside while turning. I stopped it, took off the aluminum cover, turned the microwave...

The food is safe as long as the food has not got oxidized aluminium on it.
Microwave energy is very high and will melt metals!
As long as it is not arcing any more there should be no problem.

IMHO this is an expensive microwave and it is pretty poor that the door mechanism is so weak considering that it gets constant stress from opeing and closing the door and especially since the part that breaks is integral to the expensive control panel. I have the same problem with my microwave after only 2 1/2 years of use. After some fiddling I got it apart as follows. Remove the three screws that hold on the top grille (above the door) on and lift off the grille. Turn off the power to the microwave at the switch panel. Remove the two screws above the control display that are now visible after removing the top grille. Do NOT pry this panel off, slide it upwards to unlatch the hooks and lift it off carefully. There are a lot of wires which you will have to unplug (note their locations although none of the plugs are interchangeable) and separate the panel from the microwave. You can now check the latch itself and open the door by putting your finger under the lift latch and genly pushing upwards. If the door won't open the problem is in the latch mechanism which can be removed by taking out the two screws on the inside of the case an unplugging the many wires (note locations, a couple of them can be plugged back in the same place). If the problem is the same as the one I had it is in the actualy release button assembly where one of the brackets are broken. You will either have to replace the whole display & control panel or glue the bracket back together. I'm in the process of trying to glue it with epoxy but I can't vouch for how reliable the repair will be. Remove the screws that secure the control panel metal reinforcement and unplug the flat cable then remove it carefully. If either of the plasting pivot brackets moves it is broken. With the metal plate removed the problem should be obvious.

Broken turntable support

Microwave-safe epoxy would be better than super glue, which will will emit fumes.

You would be better off getting a new one if it's truly available.

Tritronics ( shows it as part # M0R0282 (no rollers included) and the rollers are part #

M0R0272. You rrollers may work if they're okay.
