If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

If you don't have your instructions, please reply back with your brand and model number.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

CANT FIND LIGHT TO CHANGE IT


Changing bulbs on microwave ovens is usually from the outside of the cabinet. You will find a small door in the location of the light, with either one or two screws. They are the only two screws that aren't security screws!

How do I change the lamp in my Kenwood Simplicity microwave?


The lamp is accessed by removing the outer cover of the microwave oven. Hazardous voltages are exposed by removing the cover. Remove the lamp and install the replacement.

How do i change the light in my MS-133SE GOLDSTAR MICROWAVE


Replacement of the lamp should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

But here is a basic method if you are mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.

The lamp is sat in a housing and its position is adjacent to the vent holes that it shines through.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity.
Remove the microwave cover. Purchasing a new replacement lamp will be useful as it will give you an idea of what it looks like. Locate the dead lamp remove the lamp and fit the new one. Replace the covers. Plug it back in and try the lamp by opening the door.
Hope this helps.

The oven lamp is accessible when the whole outside cover of the oven is removed. The lamps these days are a special bulb and would be available from a TV repair place or a appliance repair centre.Take the old lamp in with you to pbtain the correct part.

LG MS194A Not lighting up and heating up


It is probably a bad door switch (upper or lower) or one of the switch mounts is damaged or misaligned.

Since you are in PNG, you'll have to find parts locally or maybe via Stokes in Australia.

LG MP- 1482s INTERNAL LIGHT CHANGE


Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

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.
