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.

If you don't have your instructions, please reply back with your brand and model number.

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 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 the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Bulb gone in microwave oven compartment


Most models have a slide plat that covers the lamp. Other require you to remove approximately four screws and slide the entire panel out. Your owners manual will sometimes tell you how to replace a lamp for a microwave cabinet.

How do I replace the oven lamp in a Sanyo EM-G471?


If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

While your exact manual may not be online, there are several Sanyo manuals here, and one may be close enough to help.

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. Other models are similar. It's at http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

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.

Loose Light?


MOST MICROWAVE OVENS TODAY HAVE TO HAVE THE OUTER SLEEVE REMOVED TO ACCESS THE SIGHT BULB.
THIS IS DONE BY REMOVING ALL THE SCREWS ALONG THE BACK EDGE OF THE SLEEVE AND PULLING UP AND
BACKWARDS ON THE SLEEVE. SOMETIMES THE BULB ISN'T LOOSE BUT THE FILAMENT IS DANGLING IN THE LIGHT BULB AND OCCASIONALLY MAKES CONTACT WHEN IT IS BUMPED. THE BULB WOULD NEED REPLACED.
