SOURCE: Replacing bulb for microwave

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.

You should be able to download your owner's manual from Panasonic.net by choosing your region & country, then Support.

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.

You should be able to download your owner's manual from Panasonic.net by choosing your region & country, then Support.

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 to change the light bulb on a rival 0.7cu ft digital microwave oven”


Generally on Microwave ovens you need to get the hood off. It will be screwed on with philips screws at the back. The bulb should be easy once that's off. Obviously make sure it's unplugged and has been so for 10 minutes.

With the full model number, we could have looked up what an F9 code means on that model.

Usually it's a failure in the inverter circuit.

Rival Microwave Model RGM41101 will not heat


If the lead and the plug are ok and the panel lights up, do not attempt any further repairs of inspection. A microwave is an extremely dangerous appliance and should only be serviced by qualified persons.

Light


Wesee (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, whichwe regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

Thislight failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filamentshorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without firstunplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such afailure on the controller.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly.
