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.

    Answer does not address my problem. Manual says to twist and remove the ceramic hook. Unable to do so with moderate strength. Reluctant to use a tool which could break the ceramic.

Has stopped working. light gone off at same time. plug fuse has not broke. any ideas ?


There is a fuse inside the microwave also.It is a ceramic fuse,usually 15A.It has to be replaced with another ceramic fuse of the same rating.Bear in mind,the fuse blew for a reason,so if it is the interior fuse replace it after a search for a fault.

Replace light bulb on the Neff H7871 combined oven and microwave.


The bulb is positioned at the top of the oven, accessible only from the outside. You'll need to pull off the top and bottom trim strips, remove the bottom trim strip locators, remove 2 fixing screws from the left edge of the oven (with door open), and the 2 fixing screws from behind the top trim strip. The oven should then just slide out. You only need to pull it out 6 inches or so to gain access to the bulb cover. You'll need a T20 driver to remove the cover, then the bulb unscrews as it has an SES fitting. Bob

Bulb gone in microwave oven compartment


Most models have a slide plat that covers the lamp. Other require you to remove approximately four screws and slide the entire panel out. Your owners manual will sometimes tell you how to replace a lamp for a microwave cabinet.
