Hello - This may or may not be specifically for your model, however these are generics instructions that I found.

To replace the light bulb to the over the range microwave you will need to follow the steps below:

1. To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.

2. Remove the vent grill mounting screws.

3. Pull the vent grill away from the unit.

4. Remove the charcoal filter by pushing it inwards, then turn and pull it away from the unit.

5. Open light cover located behind filter mounting by carefully pulling up on the front edge.

6. Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent 30 watt bulb available from part distributor. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers.

7. Replacing the microwave oven light cover by carefully pushing into place. Replace the charcoal filter. Push the vent grill back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and replace the vent grill mounting screws.


Note: DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 30 WATTS.

How do I replace the lightbulb in a Frigidaire Microwave Model FFCE2278LS?


Good Evening Gary, thank you for your post!
From the information you have provided you need to replace the lightbulb inside of your Frigidaire microwave. I have researched your microwave and you are unable to disassemble your microwave in order to replace the lightbulb. In order to provide you with a proper resolution I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional technician for repairs. This will help you avoid unnecessary part purchases or personal injury. -Matt

Tip

I can not believe I have to jump through these hoops just to change a feaken...


The folks at GE told me you need a technician to change this bulb. Phooey, I say. It was a piece of cake. Save $ 100 and follow my instructions. I did it. I would imagine most GE microwaves would be similar.

Here's how to do it. I bought this bulb (part # WB36X951) from PARTSTORE.COM for $ 18.58 total (that's bad enough). Got the bulb within a few days.

This model GE microwave, is a stainless model with stainless inside and grilling element.

The bulb is located directly behind the front control panel (on the right), but you need to remove the stainless cover to get to it. Naturally, unplug it first. You'll need one those star bits (not sure what size), a philips head won't work. There's four of those sneaky screws on the rear. Remove those screws and the cover slides off. VOILA! It's magic! The bulb, you'll see, is sealed to a base, but it has as double slide contact. Undo this before removing the bulb. It's snapped into a little fixture. Remove the old bulb and snap new one in. Replace the contact leads and that's it.

The cover is a little tricky to get back seated properly. Along with the sneaky star screws, this is another attempt to discourage consumer servicing. Make sure that the cover is flush with the back before replacing the screws. You're done.

I for one, am tired of this type of this type of rip-off and scamming. I hope this tips helps many and saves some of you from paying a ridiculous service fee.

If this tip has helped you, let know. E-mail me at cdpays@bellsouth.net.

HOW TO CHANGE VIKING MICROWAVE LIGHTBULB VMOS200


The Viking VMOS200 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-530E.

One or both of these service manuals should cover disassembly and location of the bulb:

Light no longer working


Most microwave ovens I have worked on the procedure is...
UNPLUG the microwave.
Remove the screws (along the bottom sides and the back of the oven) holding the the outer cover to the unit.
Remove the outer cover and the lightbulb will be visible.
Unscrew the bulb and head to the hardware store for a replacement.
Reverse above procedures.
Hope this helps.

How do i change the lightbulb in my Zanussi ZCM32T Combination Oven


hi

two VERY important things... first, turn off the breaker (power) to the unit, and second, do NOT touch the bulb with your bare hands (use thin gloves or rubber gloves), you don't want to get any thing on the bulb, like grease. I don't know this exact model but, to remove the bulb, there should be a grill on top of the microwave, take that off and there should be a panel above the bulb inside, remove that and you should be able to reach the bulb now.
