Question about GE JVM1790 1000 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven
GE Spacesaver microwave jvm1790 interior light went out. Instructions, please, on how to replace the light.
Very easy to replace...at least on my JVM1790. Remove the top vent....the long plastic thing that runs along the top of the MW. Two screws on top of the micro. Behind the charcola filter (if you installed one) is an access area to the bulb. remove one screw and the entire assy comes out. Simply R & R the bulb.

While your owner's manual shows you how to change the cooktop lamps, it does not address the internal bulb.
This is because the oven must be taken down from the wall. This is much easier if you still have the installation instructions, and should be considered a two-person job for safety.
You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
Once the oven is out of the wall, the outer cover must be taken off, then you'll see the lamp in the holder on top of the oven chassis.
The exploded view which shows the lamp (drawing ref # 283) is here. You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.
The halogen lamp is part # WB36X10344 or you can get a generic replacement at grocery stores, hardware stores, or places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's. If you prefer, you can order it ahead of time here.
You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
