Question about Microwave Ovens
Model WM 101 M, Goldstar Microwave Oven. The Lamp is not budging, is it a screw in type OR push-in type? Thank you, Ken
It may be a whole assembly - the bulb and socket all in one.
Or the bulb may be tacked in with hot glue. If so, heating it up with a hair dryer will help loosen it.

Replacement of the
lamp should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!
this only if you are competent.
But here is a basic method if you are
mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.
The lamp is sat in a housing and its
position is adjacent to the vent holes that it shines through.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity.
Remove the microwave cover. Purchasing a new replacement lamp will be useful as it will give you an idea of what it looks like. Locate the dead lamp remove the lamp and fit the new one. Replace the covers. Plug it back in and try the lamp by opening the door.
Hope this helps.
