I presume the info is not in the owner manual---Google the model number with "replace lamp (or bulb or light) to see what you can find.

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

    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.

    Can't figure out how to replace light bulb for model #721.66319


    Sears Parts Direct lists the microwave, 72166319500 , as using the lamp, 6912W3B002L. This is available for $6.49 here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-72166319500/0582/0123245/50026833/00004?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= .

    Unplug the microwave and wait a bit before starting to replace the bulb. To change the bulb, you first need to take off the entire cabinet (remove 4 screws on the back of the microwave and lift the part up). Then see the parts diagram on the page given above. There are 2 screws that hold the switch and bulb assembly to the frame of the microwave. I believe you should be able to pull the bulb housing down from the middle of the assembly and then push the unit up after replacing the old bulb with the new bulb. However, the bulb housing may have two screws holding it in place.

    I hope this helps.

    Replacement of microwave lightbulb


    Can you supply a make and model number? Most microwaves have fairly easy access to the light bulb from the back. Some even have a panel with a screw or few to access it, while others need to be taken apart more dutifully. If the microwave still functions as normal with the only issue being the light, then the chances are the bulb has blown, and yes, it shouldn't be a terrible issue to replace it.

    How to replace light bulb


    You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

    If they don't cover replacement of the bulb, you'll have to take the cover off the oven.

    ALWAYS unplug the oven before removing or installing light bulbs, or a surge can occur, requiring circuit board repair.

    Light bulb has gone, can't see where it is located or how to change the bulb


    Do as follows. Do not connect the microwave oven to mains while doing the following activities. Even the accidental switching ON will harm you from the microwaves. Open the top cover by unscrewing side screws & the screws at the back. Lift the top cover by tilting upwards from rear end. Remove the wave guide of magnetron & there you will find the bulb. Wave guide is rectangular small ducting (pipe enclosure) to guide the microwaves from the magnetron.

    Hello & Welcome to FixYa

    To replace the light bulb first remove the screws located on the vent grill at the top of the microwave, tilt the grill back and then pull away to remove. After this open the light cover , you have to remove the screws so that you can discard the old light bulb and then replace it with a new one. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    That's covered on pages 35 & 36 of your owner's manual.

    If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download it here.

    Cooktop Light/Night Light

    On models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
    EMO4000, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
    40-watt incandescent bulb (WB36X10003), available
    from your GE supplier.

    On models JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and
    JVM3670, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
    20-watt halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from
    your GE supplier.

    To replace the bulb(s), first disconnect the
    power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
    or pull the plug.

    Remove the screw at the left edge of the light
    cover and push on the right edge of the cover
    to open.

    Be sure the bulb(s) to be replaced are cool
    before removing. After breaking the adhesive
    seal, remove the bulb by either gently turning
    (for models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
    EMO4000) or pulling straight out (for models
    JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and JVM3670).

    Replace with the same size and type bulb.

    Raise the light shield and replace the screw.

    Connect electrical power to the oven.

    Oven Light

    Replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt, 20-watt
    halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from your GE supplier.

    To replace the oven light, first disconnect the
    power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
    or pull the plug.

    Remove the top grille by taking out the screws
    on top of the grille that hold it in place and
    sliding the grille to the left (opening the door
    makes grille removal easier).

    Next, remove the light cover.

    On some models, the light cover is located
    in the center of the top opening. Remove the
    screw that secures the light cover and lift the
    cover off.

    On some models, the light cover is located at the
    left of the top opening. Lift the cover off.

    Pinch the clips that hold the light socket in
    place and lift the socket out.

    Remove the bulb from the light socket by
    pulling straight out. Replace with the same size
    and type bulb, then replace the light socket and
    cover.

    Replace the grille and screws. Connect electrical
    power to the oven.

    GE microwave JES 2251 SJ02 Light bulb that illuminates oven interior burnt out. Have correct replacement bulb (I think!). Can I remove oven cover and replace light bulb while keeping a good distance away...


    sTEVE, THE CAPACITORS HOLD A CHARGE EVEN AFTER THE SYSTEM IS UNPLUGGED. A good rule of thumb would be to allow at least 48 hours for the capacitors to discharge before even getting nea them. Then, yes, you can replace the bulb. Thanks

    Light won't go on; Model MMV1153WB-O


    You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

    Enter it as MMV1153WB0 (no dash, zero on the end, not "oh")

    Or just get it here, to be more exact.
    On page 4, it says:

    "Installing/Replacing Filters and Light Bulbs
    ■ Grease filter: Grease filter is on the underside of microwave
    oven. Clean monthly. Slide the filter away from the tab area,
    and drop out the filter. To reinstall, place end of the filter into
    the opening opposite the tab area, swing up the other end,
    and slide it toward the tab area.
    ■ Charcoal filter: The charcoal filter is behind the vent grille at the
    top front of the microwave oven. The charcoal filter cannot be
    cleaned, and should be replaced about every 6 months.
    Remove 2 screws on the vent grille, tilt the grille forward, lift it
    out, and remove filter. To reinstall, place the filter into its slotted
    area – wire mesh side up, replace vent grille, and secure with
    screws.
    ■ Cooktop light(s): The cooktop light bulb(s) is(are) located on
    the underside of the microwave oven, and is(are) replaceable.
    Remove bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace
    bulb, close bulb cover, and secure with screw.
    ■ Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent
    grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb
    cover, and is replaceable. Remove 2 screws on the vent grille,
    tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and
    replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure
    with screws."

    HINT: Unplug the oven before removing or installing the bulbs, or you may need this service.
