Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

This is my mom's unit. She was attempting to change a burned out light bulb (The undercounter lights) on the bottom of the cabinet. She must have blown a fuse or something as now neither bulb works. I replaced the bulbs with new ones and they still don't light. The microwave works, and the interior light does as well. Just the under cabinet lights are out. I tried to trace the wires back, but was having trouble doing so. Is there a fuse or circut board that got "fried"? Need help!!!

How do i change the bulb on ag821azh microwave x2


follow this steps and use the VOM for fix it. God bless you

Light Bulb

If the microwave light bulb is not working it is usually located behind the upper grille and behind an access panel, and above the lower panel. On counter top units you will need to remove the outer cover to get to the bulb. If that doesn't solve the problem check the on-off switch, and control board

Main Control Board

If the microwave light bulb is not working check the light bulbs, sockets and wiring. If they are good the main control board might be defective.





Light Bulb Socket

If the microwave light bulb is not working and a new light bulb doesn't solve the problem, the light bulb socket might be burned out and need to be replaced.

NN-L728BA light bulb burned out where is it and how to replace


Usually if you remove the outer cabinet, by removing the screws from the back side, and those along the side or underneath along the side, the bulb is exposed for removal. Simply reverse the process to put cabinet back on.

With some models you need a security torx bit with a hole in the center.

How to replace burned out light bulb


You need to remove the top cover to access the bulb. That is the only way on most microwaves.

How do I change a burned out light bulb


The cover has to come off the microwave to access the bulb. There are several screws around the back and sides. Remove these and the cover should lift off, revealing the bulb. For your own safety, make sure that the microwave has been unplugged from the outlet for several hours before attempting this repair.

How do you change the light bulb on an electrolux built in microwave ?


It is indeed straightforward but it requires removing the 4 phillips head screws that hold the trim kit on. Then you need to remove it from the cabinet (along with unplugging the cord.) Once that is done you will need to remove the 4 black phillips head screws along the bottom part of each side, 2 phillips from the left rear and 2 security T20 screws from the right side. I found that removing the 2 screws holding the bracket on the capacitor and the front allowed me to move the light housing enough to get to the bulb. In my case the bulb had unscrewed itself. I am not a big fan of the engineering associated with this model or the labor that assembled it.

We have a Jenn Air Microwave Over our built in oven. The light is burned out. How do we replace it? it is a jmc 7010ADB. Thank you Jan G


Mine is JMV8166BAS over-the-range model, and yours may be similar. Disconnect electric source (pull plug, or turn off circuit breaker).
1. Locate and remove 2 Phillips head screws on top projecting from cabinet/wall,etc,
2. Carefully & slowly, slide entire front vent 1/4" towards your left simultaneously pulling toward you.
3. Remove vent filter, if any.
4. In very center maybe beneath filter space, locate approx.4" width aluminum colored metal cover, possibly held in place with Phillips head screw.
5. Remove screw, exposing small light bulb.
6. Gently pull back on bulb, replace with identical wattage, 120V bulb from big box or appliance store.
7. Human touch may shorten life of bulb, so carefully push wire prongs into plastic bulb inlet socket using whatever allows you to grip bulb in the limited space.
8. Reverse 5 - 1 for reassembly. Before replacing vent assembly, notice the small notched angle clips on the bottom before aligning to microwave unit, as these were slightly tricky on my unit when inserting & sliding assembly 1/4" toright.

Where is the light bulb on JES738WJ GE microwave oven? I need to change it as it burned out. Thanks.


Took cover off unit to expose bulb. However, was not able to remove bulb by pulling, or unscrewing. Guess the entire bulb "unit" must be replaced.

GE microwave interior light bulb replacement.


Your post has two distinct model numbers shown, so it's hard to be precise, but I'll try my best.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. Other models are similar. It's at
http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

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), too.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover.

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 yours is an Advantium type, the following instructable should help: http://www.instructables.com/id/SZFF4WSF44XYT8X/?comments=all

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
