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:

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.

The owner's manual says:

grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb
cover, and is replaceable. Remove two 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.

Cooktop light: The cooktop light bulb is located on the
underside of the microwave oven, and is replaceable. Remove
bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace bulb,
close bulb cover, and secure with screw.

To remove the grille, see my video at microwavecontrol.com.

FGMV205K cover removal


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know how to remove the cover on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV205K. There are two different covers that you are able to remove for access to two different light bulbs.

If you are trying to change the Microwave Oven Light for inside your microwave:

    1)To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

    2)Remove the louver by removing the three Hood Louver Screws.

    3)Push in the upper tabs and pull the louver away from your appliance.

    4)Remove the light bulb and replace with a new 20 watt light bulb. DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

    5)Close the Oven Light Cover by carefully pushing into place. Push the louver back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and change to hood Louver Screws.


    If you are trying to change the light bulbs underneath your Microwave:

      1)To replace light bulbs, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

      2)To open Light Cover, remove the screw on the light cover.

      3)Replace the light bulbs with new 20 watt light bulbs. DO NOT USE BULBS LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

      4)Close the Light Cover and secure with screw removed at step 2.

      If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

      -Best Regards-

    ·First, disconnect power to your microwave. This can be done by either unplugging it or at the circuit breaker panel.
    ·To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover (light cover may become very hot, do not touch glass when light is on).
    ·Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent watt bulb available from parts distributor or the manufacturer directly. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. Bulbs larger than 30 watts are NOT recommended.

You should try to at least find the same wattage. The light bulbs are not dangerous safety hazards if they are made to fit microwaves.

Light bulb


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

If your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.

  • Light bulb socket & main control boardIf your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction

    Light Bulb

    If the microwave light bulb is not working it is usually located behind the upper grille and behind an access panel, and above the lower panel. On counter top units you will need to remove the outer cover to get to the bulb. If that doesn't solve the problem check the on-off switch, and control board
