How to change light bulb

We need to change the bulb in the Amana microwave Model AMV5206BA. We have followed the directions in the manual, but the vent cover does not tip forward or lift out.

    I looked at the online manual, and it says to slide it to the left, my manual that came with the microwave does not give that information. I now have it fixed. Thank you for your help.

    You have to pull out on top of cover to release it and when it is free from unit lift up to get it out,if you notice that the metal casing above it is bowed down then inside upper cabinet there are two large phillips head screws in the bottom of cabinet < support screws to hold microwave up > loosen them,don't remove just loosen them and cover will come off ,< if these screws are to tight then metal will be sandwiched against cover not allowing you to get it off properly>.

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.

Can't figure out how to replace light bulb for model #721.66319


Sears Parts Direct lists the microwave, 72166319500 , as using the lamp, 6912W3B002L. This is available for $6.49 here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-72166319500/0582/0123245/50026833/00004?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= .

Unplug the microwave and wait a bit before starting to replace the bulb. To change the bulb, you first need to take off the entire cabinet (remove 4 screws on the back of the microwave and lift the part up). Then see the parts diagram on the page given above. There are 2 screws that hold the switch and bulb assembly to the frame of the microwave. I believe you should be able to pull the bulb housing down from the middle of the assembly and then push the unit up after replacing the old bulb with the new bulb. However, the bulb housing may have two screws holding it in place.

I hope this helps.

Changing microwave light bulb


Check the owner's manual to see if yours is a model which allows access to the lights without pulling it down from the wall.

Accessing the lights on some models will require you to remove the oven from the wall.


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 owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

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

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

Trying to replace a light bulb on an amana microwave


The lamp on this model is an assembly - bulb and socket mated together.

It is mounted in an air duct on the right side of the oven near the magnetron.

You'll have to remove the outer cover to get to it.

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

Light went out in Amana Radarange Microwave.


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

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 can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.
