Unplug your unit then you have to remove the cover from the microwave. Just remove the screws that are around and in the back if there are any. once you remove the cover you should have access to your bulb. Befor removing the cover just inspect the inside of the oven to make syre that ther is no access plate in there to remove the bulb. I hope this helps. Don,t forget to rate my answer, thanks.

How do you change the bulb inside this microwave oven


Most of the ovens have a fan vent which can be removed, normally the bulb can be accessed through that area. Hope it helps.

I need to change the interior light bulb in my Frigidaire over the counter microwave. The model # is FMV156DCA.


Good Morning Evelyn, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help replace the light bulb on your Frigidaire microwave, FMV156DCA.

    ·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.
    ·Close light cover and secure with screw removed in step 2.

    I hope this information proves to be helpful. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

GE Spacemaker Microwave lights flicker on then off


There must be a short in the wiring between the bulb sockets and the power supply or control board. Otherwise the short may be in the bulb sockets themselves.
I would test the connections to make sure the wires aren't loose and all solder joints are tight. If all wires look good, and bulb sockets are tight, then the problem may be faulty capacitor

Microwave PLMVZ169 GCB night light push button does not work. Replace the light bulb. Push button still does not work. The work light does when I push the night light it stays on. Just wondering how to...


Q - While trying to change the light bulb on the oven, the bulb broke. When it did, it threw the circuit breaker and the whole oven went out. After resetting the breaker, everything on the oven works except there is no power to either light socket. Any ideas or suggestions on what to replace?
A - You tried to change the light bulbs with the power still on.....tsk tsk!!
Hate to say this....but probably blew out part of the circuit on the smart board ( the brains behind the key panel you touch ) when the short blew. The light relay on the smart board may have been damaged but 9 out of 10 times when I check them, the board itself is damaged.
check out this problem.
please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.thanks,

Sharp microwave convection oven model R-930AK. the interior light stays on all the time and the only thing that I am really able to operate is the clock and enter some commands but can not get any...


You do not say how old this unit is, but if the microcircuitry in the door latch is damaged the oven may be unsafe. Service on microwave ovens is not cost effective. For problems other than replacing the light bulb, I would buy a new oven. The prices have become very reasonable and the newer ovens have great new features. I had a Sharp unit for years. I started having problems and replaced it recently with a 1100 watt larger oven for about 20% of the cost of the first one.
