GE Spacemaker Micro/Oven Need to change (inside) light bulb on model #JVM1490SH02 Serial # TH901044K. Where is the bulb located?


While replacing the cooktop light can be done by accessing the cover on the bottom of the oven, replacing the cavity light will require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover.

The installation instructions are very handy in this case, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb 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.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

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 (and 20A ceramic fuses) can be had locally in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Microwave light bulb out


This is simple, and "FixYa" technical staff has clearly not looked at our model.

Take off the vent across the top (three long screws) to expose a single screw over the keypad.

Remove the single screw, and the whole keypad consile will lift up and off, likely hanging by a plastic tab/support on the bottom.

Now you can twist the light bulb plug to remove it from the support structure, change the bulb, and replace all that you've done.

Simple.

Microwave heats bowl but not food


First of all, you must be sure you are using a microwave safe container. If it is not marked as such, it is not.

Try heating a cup of water in a clear glass container. If it still does not work right, your stirrer may be bad.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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.

Microwave interior light


Very easy to replace...at least on my JVM1790. Remove the top vent....the long plastic thing that runs along the top of the MW. Two screws on top of the micro. Behind the charcola filter (if you installed one) is an access area to the bulb. remove one screw and the entire assy comes out. Simply R & R the bulb.

TO BIGDEEL

Do you mean your internal cooling fan or the hood / vent / exhaust fan?

If it's ther internal cooling fan, do not use the microwave or the magnetron will overheat and be damaged or destroyed.

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), too.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover.

Burnt bulb in GE JE1590sc001 convection microwave


You can locate it by looking inside the cavity for an area that is perforated.
If this area is not a panel that can be removed, replacing it may (often) require removing a few sheet metal screws along the rear edge of the unit; rarely is the housing held on with more than that.
With the screws removed, lift up on the rear edge and pull toward the back.

DO NOT LEAVE IT PLUGGED IN!

Also, because there are components that may keep a charge (capacitors) for hours, I would recommend letting it sit unplugged overnight before removing the housing.

The bulb may be either a cylindrical type such as many sewing machines use or a smaller version of a standard bulb.
Neither of which anyone ever has at home, of course.

Any of the large 'home improvement' stores should have these 'made in China' bulbs at an inflated price.
