Most models have a slide plat that covers the lamp. Other require you to remove approximately four screws and slide the entire panel out. Your owners manual will sometimes tell you how to replace a lamp for a microwave cabinet.

The light has gone out on my oven.. Is it the bulb?.. Or is there a battery compartment?


The bulb needs to be replaced, or if the bulb is good, then the circuit needs to be checked.

How do i replace the light bulb in my maytag microwave oven. the bulb broke in the socket.


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.

Bosch microwave bulb


If there's no obvious cover or customer-accessible socket (and the owner's manual doesn't cover it), the manufacturer would prefer so.
It means that the whole outer cover or other panels would have to be removed to access the bulb or bulb assembly. In a bulb assembly, both the socket and bulb are replaced as one unit.

Panasonic 1100 watt microwave where is the light


Not sure as microwave manuals often will not discuss this due to consumer safety concerns, but here is some info from a good source on Microwave repair:


"You would think that something like replacing a light bulb would be trivial and self evident. Unfortunately, not always so with microwave ovens. Light bulbs may be typically located in any of 3 places:


  1. Oven chamber - it may be behind a mesh grill requiring a screw or snap to be removed. This is the easiest.
  2. Rear - the bulb may be in a recessed compartment accessible by removing a screw or two on the back of the oven.
  3. Inside - it may be behind a non-removable grille requiring the removal of the cover.

These are typically not your usual vanilla flavored appliance bulbs either.

Bad connections are also possible but not that likely."


Remember, while you can do some repairs on your microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, follow the above link and take note of the safety instructions.

HOw do i replace the inside bulb?


Hi. I just told you, there is no acces for the bulb in microwaves. Bulb replacement is not supposed to be a user level maintenance operation. You will need to remove the microwave outer cover to replace the bulb.

Here again my instructions: How do I replace light bulb.

Regards.

How do i change lite bulb in my microwave


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:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

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.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
