SOURCE: Emerson microwave light out

There is a way but.... you will have to remove outer cover generally held on with screws at rear and under microwave be sure the oven is unplugged and when you take cover off there is a capacitor in there thats holds a charge stored even when oven is unplugged so dont touch nothing except the light bulb would prefer if you dont have much electrical experience to take to repair shop or have someone do it who has a little electrical knowledge hope this helps

SOURCE: Emerson Microwave stopped working

Have 1 of 2 choices, the main fuse or the control board for the front switches and clock. primary of the small power transformer has opened. Unplug the unit and take case off and measure the fuse with an ohm meter. if u read 1 ohm or less then fuse is good. then measure across the main power plug tips. If read open then the power transformer is bad. Need to replace the board as not sure if transformer is available.

SOURCE: my emerson mwg9111sl microwave runs but does not

assuming the micro responds to whatever setting you set on the controls, that is: time, temp, & on/off , then the problem most likely is in the magnatron energy portion. Of this portion, the biggest problems are the hi-volt diode and hi-volt capacitor, or the connections to them (sometimes arc and burn to the point of failed contact). CAUTION: there is 2000volt stored energy in this circuit and it will shock you very much if you do not de-energize it; simply unplugging the unit will not deenergize this portion of the circuit. You must short the terminals of the capacitor with a metal object that has an insulated handle. If you get a reasonable spark from this shorting, then the capacitor is probably ok, and the diode (black rectangle attached to one terminal of the capacitor) is the culpret. However, if the diode is bad, the capacitor may not charge up and you think it is bad (when in fat it is not). You need a capacitor tester or you need to remove the capacitor and have it tested, so also the diode tested. If these test ok, then you either need the power transformer or the magnatron. The tranformer and magnatron are expensive to by as lone parts; better to find a discarded micro and salvage these parts (they are very interchangeable to a greater degree).
Or, go to a appliance repair place after you have checked out your unit and tell them that you need these parts tested . I'm sure they will have some salvage parts to offer you. Goodluck, Macgivor

How can I unscrew the burned out 20w oven lamp from it's holder so it can be replaced.

Does it appear your can remove the window/cover that is over the bulb? If not, the back panel may need to be removed which can expose you to electrical shock especially if you are not trained to do so. I would imagine the cover should be able to be removed (unplug first) so the bulb could be replaced without disassembly.

When replacing the bulb in an Emerson, Microwave. Model mwg9111sl. Can you replace the bulb or the socket and bulb?

Your owner's manual is here.

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.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

See these links before proceeding:

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.
