Question about GE Profile Advantium SCB2001KSS Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven
I found a description of how to replace the bulb on an Advantium, but it's not the same model as mine. The instructions I found were for an under-the-cabinet advantium that has exterior screws that allow you to remove the grill to get to the lightbulb. Mine is a built-in unit (model SCB1001KSS) that has no apparant way to remove the control panel to get to where I believe the bulb sits. I imagine you need to pull the unit out, but that won't be too easy. I'd appreciate any help.
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!
