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.

If you don't have your instructions, please reply back with your brand and model number.

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.

If you don't see a removable panel inside the cavity, yes, it will have to get nekkid. Obviously, pull the AC plug first; there are potential very dangerous uninsulated points inside. 

It shouldn't be too tough, there are normally only 5-8 screws along the edge of the back panel to be removed, then lifting the back edge of the housing should free it from the front lip and it should slide off. Sometimes, finding one of the compact bulbs is more work than the replacement of it.

You can find owner's manuals (which would cover any user-replaceable lights if present), installation instructions, and parts list, which have helpful exploded view diagrams here.

HOW TO CHANGE THE LIGHT BULB for a Miele M636EG


You have to remove the outside cabinet to get access to the lamp but in doing so bear in mind that you will be exposed to dangerous and potentially lethal voltages, even with power disconnected.

Miele M625 lightbulb replacement


If the owner's manual doesn't cover it and there's no obvious cover on the side or rear, you'll have to remove the outer wrapper.

See these files:

Often on a unit whose bulb is not meant to be replaced by the customer, the light is located on the right side in the air duct attached to the magnetron or on the top of the oven cavity.

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

Miele m638ec microwave oven hi the unit started acting strangely and then suddenly had a dead short resulting in the mains tripping. i have sent it to miele, who have just returned the unit today,...


Mate - send the unit back to Miele- thats poor service on their part, the stirrer fan must be running to be effective.

No its not a common fault - I would think the unit was not serviced properly.

Start button intermittent eg press many times (maybe 20) to start


Problem identified as plastic pushbutton on control panel, solution: interchanged with turntable on/off button (nevrer used). Had paid Miele €115 call out (for person who knew nothing about microwaves), Miele operate a closed shop. Local repair service say Miele will not supply parts, Miele designated repair agent will not repair microwaves, Miele will only send "engineer" to customer, no drop off facility. Was forced into buying new microwave oven from Miele as only way of recouping callout charge. Subsequently had a go myself with above positive positive result - now have a spare microwave cooker.
