Bulbs can be had locally in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Or you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

On Prestige Combi Microwave the bub is on the control panel side. First remove the cover, Philips and torx required to remove screws on the back. *** MAKE SURE MAINS PLUG PULLED OUT ***

Looking at at the magnetron unit, find a black oval shape between it and the control panel with two wires plugged in, there are two bend strips holding the bulb holder in (this is directly behind the vent holes on the right hand side of the microwave oven), straighten them and extract holder with bulb, swap bulb with same rating and reverse the operation and re-assemble.

Check your owner's manual.

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

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for Electrolux and Frigidaire here.

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

If the owner's manual doesn't cover it and there's no obvious cover on the side or rear, you'll have to remove the outer wrapper.

See these files:

The light is sometimes located on the right side in the air duct attached to the magnetron or on the top of the oven cavity.

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

Some 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 links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

Built in microwave counter top lights not working


Did you replace bulb yourself if so it may look a good bulb with filament complete but if you have touched the glass part of bulb with your fingers it can knacker the bulb.
Also the switch membrane panel traces the circuit from both the switch membrane and the lighting circuit to the power circuit board. So, I know that both the lights and the switch membrane have a common terminus on the power circuit board. Since the circuits from both sources lead to a common point,

GE JVM1640WB004 light bulbs break off when trying to replace them


GE uses a bulb that includes two flat pins. It looks like a bulb and removable socket, but it isn't. Just a way to cost you more. The bulb is removable from the top where it's mounted, and removed from the hole that it sticks vertically down thru. 1. You have to remove the unit cover to get to the bulb. 2. You have to unplug the connector to remove the bulb. 3. You have to squeeze two plastic pins, to extract the bulb from its location. This is not a common bulb; good luck finding one.

The light is not on in the microwave when I open the door


Depending on the model, you might NOT be able to replace the bulb yourself.

With many microwave appliances the bulbs are located in a secure area away from the cooking area of the machine. If you look inside the oven, you should see an area that looks like a grill of sorts. This is most likely where the bulb is located and might not be readily accessible for you to replace unlike a conventional oven light bulb is.

Verify first where the bulb is located. If it is located in an enclosed area of the oven, you might need to call for onsite service from Whirlpool to replace the bulb. Most likely this is the case. And you should ask yourself:

1- Is the unit in warranty still?
2- If YES, then call Whirlpool Service to have it worked on
3- If NO, then ask yourself, how much do I really need a light, because to have someone come out and service the unit will cost about $100+ USD to get it working again.

I know this is not what you wanted to read as a solution, but it might be the only thing to do. There is no listed part number for a replacement bulb therefore, it is a service installable part only.

Hope this helps you out.

Cheers,

Keith

Replace the bulb in Panasonic microvave Model nn s 768ba


Hi all,

I have just replaced the bulb in my Panasonic NNA873 Dimension 4.

Please be careful,although it was an easy job, there is a capacitor inside which stores heavy loads of power and will release the electricity into you if you touch it!

YOU CANNOT REPLACE THE BULB FROM INSIDE THE MICROWAVE....... DO NOT REMOVE THE CARDBOARD-STYLE COVERING WHICH IS ATTACHED WITH ONE SCREW INSIDE THE MICROWAVE ON THE RIGHT.

To replace bulb will take 5 minutes.

UNPLUG microwave. Remove the outer cover by unscrewing about 6 screws (ordinary phillips) don't lose them into the workings.......

Bulb is located on the right side, nearer to the front. You cannot see the glass of the bulb, only the black plastic end piece, as the bulb sits upside down and vertically. Best if you check out what a T170 looks like on the internet, then you will know what you are looking for. For my Panasonic I needed a T170 (but be careful, they have different ends, some are straight, some right angled - mine was right angled - check before you buy and no, I don't think you can get them from any ordinary supermarket etc!!). Do not touch the bulb when replacing as the oil on your fingers will shorten its life.

Old bulb can be removed by taking out one screw and then pulling off the connectors - there is a little tab to push down to ease them off.

Then simply replace bulb!

When putting cover back on make sure all the tabs on top and sides go inside not outside casing.

Good luck. This is an easy job, just don't poke around anywhere else.

Replace light in overrange GE microwave


Advantum 120 over range microwave - with burned out interior bulb: Remove top fron grill cover -- held byu 2-3 screws on top. Remove sheetmetal plate that lies parallel to top of unit, just to the right of the square plastic porting on the far left of the unit. The sheet metal plating is about 12" wide and 8" deep and is shaped like 2 overlapping rectangles. It is held in place by 1-2 screws. (I don't recall if you needed to remove other plastic grid on right front -- I did, but I was still searching for the bulb). The bulb is located about 5" from the left side and about 2" in from the front, covered by a small sheetmetal box. THe bulb looks like the little halogen bulbs used in low-voltage outdoor lights - but is slightly larger - DO NOT REPLACE WITH THAT KIND OF BULB). Remove the one screw holding the box, unplug the bulb and find a replacement. Can't tell you where to get a bulb -- that's what I'm doing next. Good luck.
