Question about Goldstar MV-1526 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I have a 1985 Goldstar microwave oven model #ER6510. It still works beautifully but the light bulb has burned out and I don't see "HOW" I can access it to change it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi amyates:

Although I am so tempted to tell you to chuck it and buy something that is actually younger than I am, I found the part you would need. Apparently, not many people carry parts for microwaves from the 80s. How weird.

http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-er6510-%3d%3dc253

It costs about $14 without shipping. I talked to an online rep and he said that if you place an order, the tech guys will be more than happy to tell you how to take out the old and install the shiny new one.

If you aren't hip to the idea of having to rely on tech guys, I found manuals... but... since the microwave is, erm, vintage, its far more difficult to find one for free.

I found one service manual that has the instant gratification appeal since it is a download, but it runs around $16. You can find it: http://www.servicemanuals.net/ServiceManual/GOLDSTAR/6510/pos1/results.aspx

This guy doesnt post his rates, but it seems like hes just a collector and would probably charge much less. http://www.analogalley.com/m_goldst.htm

Hope this helps!

GE PEB1590 microwave oven. Interior light burned


Remove the screws from around the rear of the oven and slide the cabnet off to the rear. You should be able to access the bulb from here.
WARNING: any time you work on a microwave you have to be careful of the capacitor. Unpluge the microwave and discharge the capacitor with a large screwdriver with a plastic handle.
Be careful.

Light bulb going out


Unplug your unit then you have to remove the cover from the microwave. Just remove the screws that are around and in the back if there are any. once you remove the cover you should have access to your bulb. Befor removing the cover just inspect the inside of the oven to make syre that ther is no access plate in there to remove the bulb. I hope this helps. Don,t forget to rate my answer, thanks.

Light bulb for Goldstar MV1526w


Your best bet is to remove the old one and match it up at the store.

You can usually find them at local appliance parts stores, home centers and home improvement stores, as well as places like Wal-Mart.

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

If you'd rather order it first, call Goldstar / LG at 1-800-243-0000 (M-F, 7am-8pm CT, Sat 8-5 CT) and choose the appropriate prompt from the menu or visit http://www.lgservice.com.

My microwave stopped working and I'd like to try and fix it myself. Any suggestions?


Because microwave leakage can be hazardous and high wattage is present, limit your microwave repairs to light bulb changes if the light bulb is easily accessible. For other repairs, call a qualified technician to make repairs on a microwave oven. If it doesn't work and the light doesn't go on, be sure it is receiving power.
