You have to remove the screws from back and bottom and pull top of microwave off. Then you will have access to the bulb. Don't worry, you won't break anythiing

Changing the lamp in microwave of GE model pt970srss


If it is at all like a plain microwave oven, you will have to remove the screw for the cover to access the insides and likely will find that the light is not a simple screw-in bulb but a sealed package with a spare of spade terminals on top. It may be held in by one or more screws.
It is possible that this could be like a new conventional oven where you have to remove a light cover inside the cavity to access the bulb and change it

Magic Chef microwave MCO160UW stopped working after trying to change the lightbulb.


First thing to do is unplug it and take a pair of needle nose pliers and get the base of the old bulb out and replace it. Microwave ovens have a lot of things wired in 'series' which means that is one switch,bulb or any thing else in the circuit goes out then the circuit cannot complete it's path and will not let the other parts function. It is a safety feature that is built into them. As in many things I think they over do the safety features but they didn't ask me when they built it. LOL! Try replacing the bulb and let me know how it works.

Changing interior light bulb on GE jes1289sk


I have had this trouble before but with a different model. There may be a plastic screen inside the microwave that will just pop off exposing the bulb. Now all you will need to do is to find out what type of bulb you will need to change the other bulb. I hope this made things easier on you.

How to change inside bulb


Normal procedure is to remove case cover to access the bulb.

Usually several screws on the back and some partially hidden on the front to remove. Sometimes the screws require a Torx screwdriver.

Unplug unit and avoid touching any wires.

Replace bulb with exact type.

Light bulb burned out in microwave oven


Most likely you're going to have to dismount the microwave and remove the outside cover to get to the bulb. This is a fair amount of work but is not rocket science. I'm not famliar with your particular microwave, but it's probably that way. If it's any comfort to you, light bulbs are usually not covered by warranties or service contracts.

It won't hurt to run the microwave without a bulb.
