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.

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.

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

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.

How to change the light bulb


What kind of microwave oven is this? A counter-top model or an over-the-range microwave? Do you have a brand and model number? And which light bulb do you want to replace - the cavity light bulb, or the bottom light(s) of an OTR microwave?

Replacement of microwave lightbulb


Can you supply a make and model number? Most microwaves have fairly easy access to the light bulb from the back. Some even have a panel with a screw or few to access it, while others need to be taken apart more dutifully. If the microwave still functions as normal with the only issue being the light, then the chances are the bulb has blown, and yes, it shouldn't be a terrible issue to replace it.

How to use the Tesco mtg06 microwave grill?do not have instruction manual


The oven may be used purely for microwaving or simply as a grill for cooking such things as toast. The radiant or quartz grill may be used in a variety of ways. You can use microwaves that have grill functions to roast foods, for baking purposes or for grilling food such as bacon or sausages on the racks. Some models also allow you to use both the oven and grill together, and you can produce fantastically presented meals by using the grill to brown off your dish after cooking. The grill will often have low, medium and high settings for you to choose from, letting you control how brown your food is. By using a microwave with a grill, you can prepare great meals or snacks in a fraction of the time that it would take if you used a conventional oven and grill. Microwaves are particularly convenient, as you don't have to keep checking on the food or stand over it as it cooks.

I have a MTG06 combination microwave oven and grill that i purchased from tesco. i broke the glass turntable and need a replacement, where can i get one other than from tesco Thanks


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps

Bulb blown. How do I change it?


Hello there :
first you will need to remove all of the screws off the back edges and the sides next turn over the microwave over and there will be 6 or 8 screws that are on the bottom edges remove them now turn over the microwave and using a flat tip screwdriver look at the seam and you can use the screwdriver to get the cover to start moving towards the back andd then once it is loose it will lift off
Now you will see the bulb towards the fromnt of the microwave simply replace the bulb and test it the microwave if it works reassemble the microwave and you are done ok ?
I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
