A special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Some folks just use a hammer to tap and loosen the screw, then a small flathead screwdriver can be used to remove the screw, as shown in the photo.

Another creative solution is to use a hacksaw or a Dremel tool to carefully cut a slot in the head so a flatblade will fit it.

My JE1590 BH 02 is only 5 years old and we are having door issues. The door will not open, unless while pushing the door button you also hit the door. It seems the latch is not functioning correctly. ...


Door catches.

One of the latches may be bent/misaligned and is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. When a new door lever is in place, the door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.

The light bulb assembly (bulb and socket are all one piece) is part number
WB36X951.

It is located on the air duct assembly where the door switches are mounted.

You can see an exploded view diagram here.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb assembly.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

See these links before proceeding:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H 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.

If you're not able to find the bulb assembly at your local appliance parts store, you can order one here.

Changing light bulb in microwave oven


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

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.

On this model you need to remove the outer cover.

The bulb mount will be located on the right side next to the side wall of the cooking cavity.

It's above the damper door assembly as shown in the attached drawing.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

The bulb should be available at local grocery stores, hardware stores, and places like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.

Sorry, but you can't get a manual without the model number. You can find help locating your model number here.

If the manual doesn't address how to change the bulb, or you don't see an obvious bulb cover, then you'll have to remove the outer cover.

Be sure to unplug the oven first.

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

The type of screw attaching the casing is called a Torx Tamper Proof screw. You need a Torx Tamper Proof Screwdriver to remove the screws. These screws and screwdrivers come in various sizes. I think the size you need is T20H.
