Light bulb


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

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.

  • Light bulb socket & main control boardIf 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

    27oct: BKOK, replacing the light bulb is not simple, and requires a T15 security bit. Our microwave bulb blew this week, and sears on-line was not helpful, so I took the cover off and removed the bulb and the filament is blown. Here is what you need to do. Sorry, it's not easy. 1) remove the cover - this has 3 standard black phillips head screws, 2 on one side and 1 on the other. Then, there are 4 standard silver phillips heads on the back, plus two size 15 Torx screws that require a security bit to remove. 2) remove the 3 sided cover by prying the bottom and then pushing the cover towards the back of the unit to remove the latch keeping the cover secure to the front of the machine. 3) Now, there is a wiring diagram on the cover, use this to locate the bulb, but I will tell you it is on the top of the unit near the control panel. The white plastic connector has 4 wires going into it... Red, Yellow, Brown and Black. The bulb is secured with one screw and permanently attached to a trapazoidal base. The markings on my bulb say KEI, Korea, 125V,30W. 4) Remove the screw and lift the bulb assembly out and see if the filament is blown. The bulb is clear and so it's easy to see the filament. 5) I'm gonna go to local repair shop to see if they have replacements, but I usually go to AppliancePartsPro. They do have this bulb listed for under $5. , which is ok, but I hate paying shipping on such a small piece. Maybe I'll buy some other stuff. Good luck, it's not easy, and not a easy do-it-yourself bulb replacement. But if you are mechanically and electrically competant, it's not bad. But seriously, this is a lot of work to replace a light bulb. I'll take a picture and post that as well

    HOW TO CHALGE LIGHT BULB


    disconnect the oven from power supply. If the lamp of your microwave is in the most common location, you will need to open the oven by unscrewing the screws on the rear. You will see the lamp behind the control panel. remove and replace the bulb

    The hood light blew and I replaced it. It worked


    The cause could be anything from defective bulbs(least likely, to a bad bulb socket or vibration during operation. A voltage measurment at the bulb will tell you if it is getting too much.

    AFTER 12 MONTHS ON NO PROBLEMS IT WONT WORK. IT DOESNT GIVE ME DISPLAY LIGHTS OR ANY.


    most likely the internal fuse
    be soooooooooo carefull in replacing this , the capacitor inside the machine can store a huge charge

    1. Turn off all electricity to the microwave and unplug from the wall socket. Move the unit to a well-lit location to better see the appliance.
    2. Step 2 Usea schematic for the particular model of microwave being worked on tolocate the area containing the fuse to be replaced. Fuses can belocated behind the microwave door or behind a panel either on theinterior wall or an exterior panel. Often the fuse will be behind apanel located under the louver vents on top of the microwave.
    3. Step 3 Removethe panel according to the manufacturer's instructions. Use a screwdriver to remove screws and set aside for replacement.
    4. Step 4 Locatethe blown fuse and check with a voltmeter. This step ensures that theproblem with the microwave is indeed a blown fuse and not anotherissue. Check for current between fuse connectors.
    5. Step 5 Take the blown fuse to a local hardware or store such as Lowe's or Home Depot. Staff can assist in finding the exact replacement fuse for the model being repaired.
    6. Step 6 Placethe new fuse into the panel in exactly the same fashion as the blownfuse came out. Replace any panel using the removed screws and returnthe unit back to its proper location.
    7. Step 7 Plugthe microwave into the wall socket and turn on all electricity. Testthe unit by ensuring the clock and all other features function.
