Just open the top cover and find the location of the bulb , it may be in the right side near the control panel. Remove the bulb and get a similar bulb with the same rating from any electrical shop and fix it

Hi, The bulb has blown on my Russell Hobbs microwave, and the manual say to call out a technician! I don't have a top cover to open so can't replace it myself, and my manual doesn't show how to replac


The "top cover" is the wraparound sheet metal enclosure. It has to be removed to replace the lamp. The attaching screws often are special and require a special tool for removal. Se sure power is disconnected before beginning removal! Once inside, there are high voltage points to avoid while replacing the lamp. Reverse the procedure to reassemble the enclosure.

Hi i have a Russell Hobbs HOB CJ/AL28 Microwave.the microwave has stopped heating things up.Oven part works ok.Any suggestions would be most help.


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARRAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Bulb blown. How do I change it?


Hello there :
first you will need to remove all of the screws off the back edges and the sides next turn over the microwave over and there will be 6 or 8 screws that are on the bottom edges remove them now turn over the microwave and using a flat tip screwdriver look at the seam and you can use the screwdriver to get the cover to start moving towards the back andd then once it is loose it will lift off
Now you will see the bulb towards the fromnt of the microwave simply replace the bulb and test it the microwave if it works reassemble the microwave and you are done ok ?
I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

you should try a local wal-mart or even radio shack as these bulbs are somewhat common in many small appliances. Also, you may check at a local appliance repair shop.
