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.

    Light won't go on; Model MMV1153WB-O


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

    Enter it as MMV1153WB0 (no dash, zero on the end, not "oh")

    Or just get it here, to be more exact.
    On page 4, it says:

    "Installing/Replacing Filters and Light Bulbs
    ■ Grease filter: Grease filter is on the underside of microwave
    oven. Clean monthly. Slide the filter away from the tab area,
    and drop out the filter. To reinstall, place end of the filter into
    the opening opposite the tab area, swing up the other end,
    and slide it toward the tab area.
    ■ Charcoal filter: The charcoal filter is behind the vent grille at the
    top front of the microwave oven. The charcoal filter cannot be
    cleaned, and should be replaced about every 6 months.
    Remove 2 screws on the vent grille, tilt the grille forward, lift it
    out, and remove filter. To reinstall, place the filter into its slotted
    area – wire mesh side up, replace vent grille, and secure with
    screws.
    ■ Cooktop light(s): 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."

    HINT: Unplug the oven before removing or installing the bulbs, or you may need this service.

    You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

    I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites. Hope this covers it.

    Lightbulb on ceiling of oven went out. How do I


    Hello :

    1:Unplug the microwave oven from the outlet. Wait 20 minutes for the capacitor that is inside the microwave to discharge.

    2:Unscrew all the screws around the casing by turning them counterclockwise.

    3:Remove the cover by lifting off.

    4:Locate the light bulb in the microwave. This will be located on either the right or left side.

    5:Unscrew the light bulb by unscrewing counterclockwise. Some light bulbs are held into the socket by two notches; for these you will need to gently push on the bulb and turn counterclockwise to unsecure the bulb, then pull out of the socket.

    6: Place your new bulb in the empty socket and secure by turning clockwise until tight, or if the bulb is one with notches on both sides, then guide the notches into the slot on the socket, push gently and turn clockwise until clicked into position.

    7: Replace the cover and screw back on. You are now done and may plug back in the microwave.

    Warning : Unplug the microwave before starting and wait 20 minutes for any residual electricity to be bled off from the capacitor.

    Things you will need : Phillips screwdriver

    good luck .

    please rate !

    Majic Chef cabinet mounted microwave oven model VM11B-8P


    On the electronic control board, the circuit trace will open like a fuse if the light bulb power becomes shorted. If you or someone knows how to use a soldering iron, this can be repaired.
    1. Remove the top grille. (Two screws on top)
    2. Remove screw above button panel. Push up on panel to remove.
    3. Remove circuit board from panel. Look on reverse side for a burned, open circuit trace.
    4. Repair circuit trace everything should work again....
