FGMV205K cover removal


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know how to remove the cover on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV205K. There are two different covers that you are able to remove for access to two different light bulbs.

If you are trying to change the Microwave Oven Light for inside your microwave:

    1)To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

    2)Remove the louver by removing the three Hood Louver Screws.

    3)Push in the upper tabs and pull the louver away from your appliance.

    4)Remove the light bulb and replace with a new 20 watt light bulb. DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

    5)Close the Oven Light Cover by carefully pushing into place. Push the louver back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and change to hood Louver Screws.


    If you are trying to change the light bulbs underneath your Microwave:

      1)To replace light bulbs, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

      2)To open Light Cover, remove the screw on the light cover.

      3)Replace the light bulbs with new 20 watt light bulbs. DO NOT USE BULBS LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

      4)Close the Light Cover and secure with screw removed at step 2.

      If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

      -Best Regards-

Bulb on ge microwave keeps burning out


Hi anything is possible being that you even replaced two different brands of bulbs. I don't think the wiring harness is the problem but like I said anything could be the problem. Might I make a suggestion. Why not replace both the left and right side bulbs with LED bulbs with the same base configuration. Maybe that just might be able to solve your problem. I would like to know if it does. It also seems that a lot of others are having the exact problem. Good luck.

Replace oven light bulb in FMV 156D



Hello Jim Rogosheske - To replace light bulbs, first I suggest disconnecting power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging. To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover. Replace light bulbs with equivalent watt bulb available from your manufacturer or a parts distributor that they recommend. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. However, it is not recommended to use a bulb larger than 30 watts. Close light cover and secure with screw that was previously removed to release cover. Be aware that light cover may become very hot. Do not touch glass when light is on.

FMV156DCC stopped working.


It may be a blown fuse or thermal cutout / thermostat on either the magnetron or oven cavity.

We have the basic FMV156 service manual and have uploaded it here to help you.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range grille and control panel assembly in under 5 minutes. Then you can access most of it for testing and part replacement.

When I close the door the microwave display goes completely out and the unit is not operable for at least 5-10 minutes, i thought it was the thermal cutout below the turntable (by the bulbs), but after...


Interesting...

If the display goes out immediately upon closing the door, but comes back on by itself later, that would be quite a mystery.

If you close the door then it goes out in a couple of minutes, then I would suspect that the oven is cooking anytime the door is closed, but the cooling fan is not running, leading to overheating and shutdown of the thermostat on the magnetron. Then when it cools down, the magnetron's thermostat resets and the unit powers back up.

You didn't mention your model number, but since you psoted this under Frigidaire FMV156, I'll take a chance that's it.

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here for free download to help you.
You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

If yours is a different model, please feel free to contact me directly with that model number and I may be able to point you to the service manual and give you free diagnosis help.

How to change inside bulb


Normal procedure is to remove case cover to access the bulb.

Usually several screws on the back and some partially hidden on the front to remove. Sometimes the screws require a Torx screwdriver.

Unplug unit and avoid touching any wires.

Replace bulb with exact type.
