Question about GE JVM1660 Microwave Oven
The bulb should be squeaky clean prior to installation. If any oils from the skin get on the bulb (or grease from cooking) that will shorten its life considerably. Always use the hood fan when cooking on the stovetop to prevent buildup of grease or moisture inside the microwave controls or cooktop lights. It might be that the door is being slammed while the bulbs are on - that can shorten their life, too. You might visit a home center (Home Depot or Lowe's, etc.) and see if they have any higher quality non-Chinese bulbs. Always be sure to disconnect power from the microwave completely before removing or installing the bulbs. Failure to do so can damage the control board. We repair a lot o control boards because of this type or failure.
