    I had the wrong "special driver" but a pair of pliars ( Leatherman) did the job.

    Thanks a lot. Chiken

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.

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.

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.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

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.

You must remove the outer cabinet from the Microwave to access the bulb. Remove every screw top, sides and bottom and slide the cabinet off.

How do i change the bulb on ag821azh microwave x2


follow this steps and use the VOM for fix it. God bless you

Light Bulb

If the microwave light bulb is not working it is usually located behind the upper grille and behind an access panel, and above the lower panel. On counter top units you will need to remove the outer cover to get to the bulb. If that doesn't solve the problem check the on-off switch, and control board

Main Control Board

If the microwave light bulb is not working check the light bulbs, sockets and wiring. If they are good the main control board might be defective.





Light Bulb Socket

If the microwave light bulb is not working and a new light bulb doesn't solve the problem, the light bulb socket might be burned out and need to be replaced.

My delonghi microwave mm821aan-x2 is not heating. the turnstable is working and the light too....is it a part i need to make it work?


Could be several things. Fuse blown to the magnetron circuit. Bad magnetron or fuse and HV diode blown to magnetron circuit. The fuses are only about $5 at www.mcmelectronic.com . If the unit is extremely old the magnetron could be bad but generally it is the fuse and HV diode. For the cost of the parts it would certainly be worth fixing if you have the ability. Let me know how it works out.

Delonghi EM821AAN-800watt The turn table has stopped spinning


Make sure the turntable guide is lined up properly and there is no debris caught in it. Examine the turn table bushing the tray sits on and make sure it is not worn or broken. Make sure the turntable is sitting down in the groove correctly. Lastly it may be the drive motor itself is bad. This is the small motor that turns the carousel. This motor is very difficult to replace and unless you are qualified you should not attempt this repair and leave it to a professional. This motor will cost from $40 to $75 plus the cost of having it replaced. You may want to consider buying a new microwave if this unit is over 5 years old. You could end up spending more to repair this one than a new one costs. Of course you can use it without the carousel.

The bulb is usually run by one of the door switches, but in some cases they are run by a relay on the board.

I would suggest you look over our files on safety & door switches here:
