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

    That model number doesn't look quite right, but nevertheless:

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

    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.

    The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H Torx 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.

    That exact model number is not showing up, so you may want to check the tag on or in the unit and look here for parts.
    Most of the models in this class of ovens were not really made to be serviced, so GE only makes the turntable parts available.
    It also sounds like your bulb is an assembly - the socket and bulb and one piece.
    So your local appliance parts store should have a generic replacement for it. You should take the bulb.
    Be careful when disconnecting the leads.

    27oct: BKOK, replacing the light bulb is not simple, and requires a T15 security bit. Our microwave bulb blew this week, and sears on-line was not helpful, so I took the cover off and removed the bulb and the filament is blown. Here is what you need to do. Sorry, it's not easy. 1) remove the cover - this has 3 standard black phillips head screws, 2 on one side and 1 on the other. Then, there are 4 standard silver phillips heads on the back, plus two size 15 Torx screws that require a security bit to remove. 2) remove the 3 sided cover by prying the bottom and then pushing the cover towards the back of the unit to remove the latch keeping the cover secure to the front of the machine. 3) Now, there is a wiring diagram on the cover, use this to locate the bulb, but I will tell you it is on the top of the unit near the control panel. The white plastic connector has 4 wires going into it... Red, Yellow, Brown and Black. The bulb is secured with one screw and permanently attached to a trapazoidal base. The markings on my bulb say KEI, Korea, 125V,30W. 4) Remove the screw and lift the bulb assembly out and see if the filament is blown. The bulb is clear and so it's easy to see the filament. 5) I'm gonna go to local repair shop to see if they have replacements, but I usually go to AppliancePartsPro. They do have this bulb listed for under $5. , which is ok, but I hate paying shipping on such a small piece. Maybe I'll buy some other stuff. Good luck, it's not easy, and not a easy do-it-yourself bulb replacement. But if you are mechanically and electrically competant, it's not bad. But seriously, this is a lot of work to replace a light bulb. I'll take a picture and post that as well

    The Light needs to be replaced in panasonic microwave NN-S696BA. Where is the light located?


    If it is "user replaceable", your owner's manual will cover that.

    If for some reason you don't still have yours, you can download it here.

    If it's not mentioned in the manual, then you will have to do some disassembly to get to it. (It's not mentioned).

    Since that's a counter top model, you'll have to remove the outer cover.

    See these help files.
    http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/safety.txt
    http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/disassembly.txt


    Then you can take your old bulb to an appliance parts store, big box store like Wal-Mart, or a home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot to match it up.

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

    How to replace light bulb


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

    If they don't cover replacement of the bulb, you'll have to take the cover off the oven.

    ALWAYS unplug the oven before removing or installing light bulbs, or a surge can occur, requiring circuit board repair.

    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.

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

    Cooktop Light/Night Light

    On models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
    EMO4000, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
    40-watt incandescent bulb (WB36X10003), available
    from your GE supplier.

    On models JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and
    JVM3670, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
    20-watt halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from
    your GE supplier.

    To replace the bulb(s), first disconnect the
    power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
    or pull the plug.

    Remove the screw at the left edge of the light
    cover and push on the right edge of the cover
    to open.

    Be sure the bulb(s) to be replaced are cool
    before removing. After breaking the adhesive
    seal, remove the bulb by either gently turning
    (for models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
    EMO4000) or pulling straight out (for models
    JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and JVM3670).

    My ge microwave model jes1384sf stopped working and sure that the power is going to the microwave, But clock, timer and contol panel etc. nothing turns on. Is there anything can be done to find out what...


    You have a power fuse inside of the panel that supplies AC power to the panel as well as the klystron tube. This is generally a slow blow 15 amp Buss fuse. Since these fuses deteriorate over time and they are sized to just hold the requested amps (15) to prevent a possible fire. You will have to take the Panel apart and find the fuse, but be sure you flip the breakers as the panel has a High Voltage power section with large capacitors that can produce a nasty shock. Before touching any thing with the breaker power off, short the capacitors to ground to discharge them, then pull and replace the Buss fuse.
