If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will 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.

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

The inside light bulb that works when the door opens and food is cooking is burned out, I have the new bulb but don't know where to replace it.


Brand and model would help but I'll guess at this. If micro is a wall hung unit over the range, you usually need to remove the top grill assembly above the door. Then look inside directly above the area where the bulb is located. You should see a metal cover with usually 1 screw in it to remove. Once screw is out that metal plate usually pulls forward and upward to reveal the bulb and socket. Replace bulb and reverse procedure to assemble.
If the micro is a counter top model---the complete outer case usually needs removed if you don't see a small access door by the bulb. Remove all screws around back edge and any screws in the side panels---then lift back edge and pull outer case rearward to remove.

When unplugging it for half a minute or so (this should reset all settings) won't help, it must be defect. When you are convinced you did press the right buttons and you are in the correct program you don't need to unplug. But for that you have to be sure it is not switched to oven. In 30 seconds it won't be warm enough to heat your coffee

CUP HANDLES GET TO HOT WHEN I WARM COFFEE.


It is your cup. The handle density or moisture content of the handle is causing the mwave to heat it. The rest of the cup contains a liquid (coffee?) that is absorbing any heat generated in the body of the cup. Use a different cup!
