    I called Magic chef about this. They say you need to call a tech for that. What a joke. You just have to buy the special screwdriver.

    Yes, the light bulb died and we don't have the manual. There's no obvious way to do it. Does anyone know?

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.

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.

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.

Light Bulb Burned Out


The outside cover usually has to be removed to change the bulb. SImply unplug the oven and remove the screws on the back holding the cover on, and slide the cover to the rear. Replacement bulbs are often challenging to find.

How do i change the light bulb & where can i get the bulb


In most microwaves, the bulb can be accessed by removing the main cover. Unplug the oven, undo the screws that hold the metal cover, and locate the bulb. If the bulb is a standard screw type, it can be found at your local home center. If it is a specialty type, then you can try looking at repairclinc.com

The light no longer comes on.


The owner's manual (online here) does not address it, so it is not intended to be changed by the user.

You would have to unplug the unit, remove the outer case, and located the bulb, usually on the right side in or near the air duct in front of the magnetron.

You can take the bad bulb to a grocery store, home center, or big box store to match it up.
