SOURCE: Lighting Problem

We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

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: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Changing microwave light bulb


Check the owner's manual to see if yours is a model which allows access to the lights without pulling it down from the wall.

Accessing the lights on some models will require you to remove the oven from the wall.


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 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.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

Many use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

Trying to replace a light bulb on an amana microwave


The lamp on this model is an assembly - bulb and socket mated together.

It is mounted in an air duct on the right side of the oven near the magnetron.

You'll have to remove the outer cover to get to it.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order the bulb by entering your full model number here.

Need to change bulb inside Amana radarange RR1220


There is an access / cover panel on the back of the oven.

It's shown in the exploded view here.

Please unplug the oven from the wall first.

Then use a 1/4" nut driver or socket to remove the screw in the end of the lamp cover.

The bulb is behind the cover, and should be readily available at grocery stores, home improvement centers, hardware stores and big box stores like Wal-Mart.

Light bulb change


If the solution below does not work, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may 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.

If you don't have your instructions, please reply back with your brand and model number.

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.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, and a special driver (such as a T20H Torx 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.

Amana AM6177 Microwave


Interior light bulb is located behind the grill, above door. It requires removing 3 or 4 screws to remove grill. I have same problem. I pulled out bulb, it looks like it was glued in some type of foam material. There are two pin connectors at the mounting. but I can't see how they fit into bulb.
