Mr. Gonzales was a truck driver for a local dairy company in Chino Hills, California for over thirty years. He had lived in a five bedroom home with a huge back yard. Now that he was retired he wanted a smaller home with some amenities. His family found The Chino Valley Senior Condo Complex near his children's homes. The converted apartment now owned condominium had a working microwave but the stove top light did not work. It came with three level of light and none worked. The condo manager stated that all the inside repairs were the new owners responsibility. This post shows how to replace a simple microwave stove top light.
