SOURCE: Samsung Bio Ceramic Microwave lamp fused.

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 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.

You can order specific Samsung parts here.

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

They do have a fuse. They also have thermal cutoffs and possibly a thermal flame sensor fuse. the main fuse would be near the control panel the thermal flame sensor is usually near the back of the cavity usually on the left side on the outside of the cavity.

Fuse on a Samsung smh918st


Unplug microwave oven, remove top, go to the keypad control board, follow wires to main circuit board, look for a silver rectangular capacitor, short across the two points with a screwdriver, look for a clipped in fuse near by, pop out and replace with the same current rating.
