Question about GE JVM1660 Microwave Oven
Purchased new GE JMV1660 spacemaker m/w oven from hom depot April 2005. Both bulbs recently burned out. When I removed the original 40w bulbs the glass bulbs they simply twisted off, leaving the metal bases still screwed into the light sockets. The bakelite socket holder insulation crumbles to pieces from the slightest touch. I can remove the metal lamp base but the socket holder insulation is no longer there. Is it safe to replace the bulbs with the insulation missing?
Otherwise the unit has performed very well and is in excellent condition.
In effect (given the unit is wired correctly) without insulation on the socket, you have an exposed neutral wire in your oven -- this is certainly not as dangerous as an exposed hot wire, but does present risks. I recommend replacing the light sockets -- you'll sleep and cook a lot better.
