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.

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.

How do i get into globe compartment to change globe on a convection microwave


The cover has to come off the microwave to access the bulb. There are several screws around the back and sides. Remove these and the cover should lift off, revealing the bulb. For your own safety, make sure that the microwave has been unplugged from the outlet for several hours before attempting this repair.

What you need to do is remove the case of the microwave and you should be able see the globe inside the unit, make sure you discharge the high voltage capacitor before touching anything else. After that is done, simply remove the globe. Good Luck.

I have an Emerson microwave MW8119SB and the light doesn't work inside anymore. I just got it the end of 2008. Other than that it seems to be working ok but a light would be nice so I could see things...


Most microwave ovens are easy to change the light globe.

If you can get the cover off where the light is, you should be able to 'unscrew' the light globe itself.

Then simply go to an appliance repair shop and request a new globe.

Hint: Sometimes you can get a globe from an electrical store.

Smeg SA987CX error message E plus a high pitched continuous sound. Need to disconnect power to stop. This only seems to happen when I microwave. Does anyone know what is wrong and how to fix.


Sounds like the Magnetron in your Microwave has shorted out causing it to scream .. lol own purely none technical term .
Its actually a harmonic caused by the magnetron's anode resonating , usual fault caused by breakdown of the filaments , it is pretty much had it a new magnetron would cost almost as much as a new microwave . it may just possibly be the power supply with an oscillator fault but again that is a symptom of a serious power drain problem that also points to the mag ... sorry Regards Vortash

I have recently been given a Smeg microwave, product No, SA987CX, but I have no instruction manual and would like to know where I can find one.


I have looked and I can't find one either. You can mail Smeg in the UK at support@smeg-service.co.uk They may be able to point you in the right direction.

Need to remove this fitted SMEG FME24X Microwave


Hi there,

Thanks for the quick reply. As you said this has been mounted into a recess and surrounded like a picture frame.

I found some screws are very deep inside the recess and it has been obstructed by the grille/frame.

If you have any pics or any illustration, can you please forward it to me.

Thanks
