Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
The interior bulb of our new GE Spacesaver microwave has burned out. We have tried to access it following the instructions that came with it, but to no avail. Any suggestions or recommendations.
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 to check if you can access the bulb fromthere. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.
you may have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy,
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 Torx 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.
