1 Answer

Replacing the interior lamp inside the microwave on the top.

Hello, I am looking to see how you replace the interior lamp on a GE Progile Advantium 120, model: SCA-1000-Hbb. Can I replace the lamp without taking the complete Microwave/convestion off the wall. I thought there was a way to replace the interior lamp without taking the complete microwave down off the wall. Thanks.

Yes, Bobby, it can be done. Before you begin, though, go to Home Depot and look in the tool department. There, ask for a "Husky Pro #66604". It's a 1/4" and 5/16" drive 90 degree ratchet that's about 4 inches long. While you're there, pick up a #2 1/4" drive phillips screwdriver bit. You'll use both of these to do the light. Both for about $12. UNPLUG YOUR MICROWAVE! Stand on a small ladder in front of the Microwave (MW), remove the 2 screws that hold the vent louver in place and remove the louver. You'll now see a black plastic grill (just above the door handle)remove the 2 screws with your new tools and remove the grill and the metal box that covers the relay. Now remove the 2 screws holding the horizontal metal panel that the box was sitting on. Now gently lift that panel up, (don't try to remove it) and you'll see the lamp. It's the one with 2 white wires going to it and a shiny metal cover over it. Place your index finger on the back of the cover of the lamp and gently pull toward you and lift at the same time. This will release the catch and allow you to pull it all the way out to get to the lamp. There ya go! Simple!

How to change nightlight bulb on ge advantium 120 oven


Advantium - Interior Light Operation While Microwaving

The Advantium 240 oven interior (cavity) light will illuminate anytime the door is open. However, due to the dark tint on the oven door, there is not a light on while cooking since the food would not be visible using the interior lamp.
Food may be viewed during a microwave cycle by pressing the Microwave/Oven Light pad.

One of the Upper Level Speedcook lamps will come on for 5 seconds. The Microwave/Oven Light pad can be pressed up to 5 times during a microwave cooking cycle. The limit of 5 times is to prevent excessive heat on microwave cookware from the Speedcook lamp.

The Advantium 120 oven cavity is illuminated anytime the door is opened and while the unit is in the microwave only mode. As a result it will not have the Microwave/Oven Light pad.

My GE Advantium Microwave first had the cook top light go out. I replaced the bulb and it worked for about a week. The control panel went haywire, and then the interior light went out. I have replaced...


In this case, you have to check the control panel. There might be wire connections and contacts that loosens. The bulbs inside the oven is connected to a switch that that only functions once the oven is in closed position.

Light inside the microwave is out.


Hello, This is a repeat of a previous post I made some time ago. It is for your make/model, if it is built in.... Mine is installed also, and I've had to replace the bulb twice. I wised up the second time and installed an access hole where I can pull my microwave out about 6" and access the bulb. I use a 35 watt 120v halogen bulb, with a GY 8.6 base, Lowe's part number 15797. If your's is different, the specs will be stamped on the metal beside the reflector when you remove the sheetmetal. You have to remove the microwave completely from the cabinet and remove the sheetmetal case that surrounds the entire unit. You can then access the lamp socket by looking in from the top. The first time, I took out the reflector with the socket. The bulb can be replaced by removing the two small screws adjacent to the socket on top of the reflector. My access port is a hole cut into the top. I cover the hole with a piece of sheetmetal and two sheetmetal screws. Seems to work just fine. If you do decide to cut a hole, do so with the metal enclosure off and away from the microwave to avoid getting any metal shavings into the machine! If, however, yours is an over the stove type, it may be possible to remove the front grille and replace the lamp.
Regards! --W/D-- feel free to rate this solution! Thanks!

Replace Microwave Light


Apparently there's a flaw in the design. My light has gone out/ been changed roughly evry 9 months. No longer under warranty and cost to have someone come in and replace is outrageous. Light bulb is located on top of the oven. You need to remove the top to get at it. Looked fairly easy.

Advantium 120 Keeps running


I've got this problem also.
The interior light on the oven died. We replaced it. Since replacing it the light stays on and the turn table turns.

Looking at the diagram, the "main relay" is what powers both. My guess is that it's stuck in the "on" position. Solution will be replace the relay.

Long term fix may be bigger relay.

Oven Halogen Lamp


It's pretty simple to replace the light without having to remove the oven from the wall...as long as you have an offset phillips screwdriver...

Of course, be sure to disconnect power to microwave and be sure not to touch the new halogen bulb with fingers.

STEP-BY-STEP:
First, remove upper vent panel and remove inner filter (same directions for just replacing inner carbon filter):

Then, remove inner plastic grille (2 screws) and final screw on left side of metal "air duct" - here's where you'll need the offset screw driver (and a little patience!):

Then, you can gently lift the sheet metal panel, find the light housing, squeeze and remove/replace :)

That's it...just replace bulb and reverse for reassembly. Be sure to keep track of screw locations there are various sizes/lengths used.
