It has to be opened up to be able to change the bulb , but there is a dangerous high voltage capacitor that you should not touch as it still will hold a charge

While changing the light bulb under the unit, the wire connected to the light bulb holder touched the metal housing and totally blew out the microwave so it doesn't work.


normally there is a glass fuse in the circuit where the power comes in
check that fuse/ replace if necessary
As silly as it sounds --turn the equipment of at the wall before you work on it as it might have been you that blew and not the fuse

How do I change light bulb under a 2009 ge microwave/model no.lvm1750dm1ww


The range top bulbs can be replaced by removing the screw that holds the glass and frame to the underside of the unit, they swing down, the bulbs usually screw in, the power needs to be turned off by way of unplugging the unit before replacing the bulbs, the interior cavity bulb can be replaced by removing the top grille and accessing the socket assy from the front.

I have a GE JVM 1870 over the range microwave with the active vent. The interior light is out which is a simply fix. How to I get to it?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Light bulb If your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.
  2. Light bulb socket & main control board If your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction.

I need to change the interior light bulb in my Frigidaire over the counter microwave. The model # is FMV156DCA.


Good Morning Evelyn, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help replace the light bulb on your Frigidaire microwave, FMV156DCA.

    ·First, disconnect power to your microwave. This can be done by either unplugging it or at the circuit breaker panel.
    ·To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover (light cover may become very hot, do not touch glass when light is on).
    ·Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent watt bulb available from parts distributor or the manufacturer directly. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. Bulbs larger than 30 watts are NOT recommended.
    ·Close light cover and secure with screw removed in step 2.

    I hope this information proves to be helpful. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

The light in my microwave went out. how do i replace the light bulb?


Some have a plate on the interior of the oven that can be removed for easy bulb replacement but if yours does not you will have to remove the entire outer covering to access the bulb. If you have a combination microwave/Range vent you will have to remove the entire unit from the cabinet, then remove the outer cover, replace the bulb and re-install the combination unit.

Replace light in overrange GE microwave


Advantum 120 over range microwave - with burned out interior bulb: Remove top fron grill cover -- held byu 2-3 screws on top. Remove sheetmetal plate that lies parallel to top of unit, just to the right of the square plastic porting on the far left of the unit. The sheet metal plating is about 12" wide and 8" deep and is shaped like 2 overlapping rectangles. It is held in place by 1-2 screws. (I don't recall if you needed to remove other plastic grid on right front -- I did, but I was still searching for the bulb). The bulb is located about 5" from the left side and about 2" in from the front, covered by a small sheetmetal box. THe bulb looks like the little halogen bulbs used in low-voltage outdoor lights - but is slightly larger - DO NOT REPLACE WITH THAT KIND OF BULB). Remove the one screw holding the box, unplug the bulb and find a replacement. Can't tell you where to get a bulb -- that's what I'm doing next. Good luck.

GE microwave interior light bulb replacement.


Your post has two distinct model numbers shown, so it's hard to be precise, but I'll try my best.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. Other models are similar. It's at
http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

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), too.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover.

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

If yours is an Advantium type, the following instructable should help: http://www.instructables.com/id/SZFF4WSF44XYT8X/?comments=all
