Question about Kenmore 63693 900 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven
The internal light bulb in the microwave is out. Can you tell me how to get to the bulb to replace it. I know you take the exhaust grate off the front. After that I am at a loss. This seems to be a very reoccuring problem with this model. Any ideas on how to keep this bulb from going out so often? Thanks, Stan
Forget about doing it yourself. You have to remove the entire cover to do it. After removing almost all of the screws, I found that two of them require a special tool which only appliance repairmen have. It looks like it would take a "star" screwdriver, but it is a special star with a hole in the middle. I ended up taking mine to a repairman. Then he had to special order the bulb because it is molded into a plastic base, not a screw-in bulb.

You can enter your full actual model number at either the GE or Sears parts site listed below and get exploded view diagrams and parts lists. On many newer ovens, they have to be removed from the wall so you can remove the outer cover to replace the bulbs on top of the chassis, in the rear, or near the hood openings. This is a safety measure to protect the customer from line voltage and high voltage. It's important to have clean and dry hands when you handle the new bulb, especially if it's a halogen type.
