How to change the inside bulb in a ge spacemaker microwave that has a top vent fan


My Spacesaver bulb replaces from the top. You have to remove 2 screws that hold the upper vent cover. W/ cover off you will find a phillips head screw about the center that holds the bulb cover. Remove the cover screw & lift up & remove the cover, then replace the bulb, the cover & screw then put the vent cover & it's 2 screws back. There may be some variance but they are all similar.

GE JVM1640WB004 light bulbs break off when trying to replace them


GE uses a bulb that includes two flat pins. It looks like a bulb and removable socket, but it isn't. Just a way to cost you more. The bulb is removable from the top where it's mounted, and removed from the hole that it sticks vertically down thru. 1. You have to remove the unit cover to get to the bulb. 2. You have to unplug the connector to remove the bulb. 3. You have to squeeze two plastic pins, to extract the bulb from its location. This is not a common bulb; good luck finding one.

How do i remove the plastic cover to change the light bulb in GE Microwave


Hi, I have a ge modle jvm1631 and mine has two scerws in the front of the cover (can be hard to see in dim light) on some modles you might have to have door open and screws will go in from bottom of cover. Then there is a filter inside that you take out and remove a metal plate that covers bulb.

GE Spacemaker Micro/Oven Need to change (inside) light bulb on model #JVM1490SH02 Serial # TH901044K. Where is the bulb located?


While replacing the cooktop light can be done by accessing the cover on the bottom of the oven, replacing the cavity light will require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover.

The installation instructions are very handy in this case, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
