I can not believe I have to jump through these hoops just to change a feaken...


The folks at GE told me you need a technician to change this bulb. Phooey, I say. It was a piece of cake. Save $ 100 and follow my instructions. I did it. I would imagine most GE microwaves would be similar.

Here's how to do it. I bought this bulb (part # WB36X951) from PARTSTORE.COM for $ 18.58 total (that's bad enough). Got the bulb within a few days.

This model GE microwave, is a stainless model with stainless inside and grilling element.

The bulb is located directly behind the front control panel (on the right), but you need to remove the stainless cover to get to it. Naturally, unplug it first. You'll need one those star bits (not sure what size), a philips head won't work. There's four of those sneaky screws on the rear. Remove those screws and the cover slides off. VOILA! It's magic! The bulb, you'll see, is sealed to a base, but it has as double slide contact. Undo this before removing the bulb. It's snapped into a little fixture. Remove the old bulb and snap new one in. Replace the contact leads and that's it.

The cover is a little tricky to get back seated properly. Along with the sneaky star screws, this is another attempt to discourage consumer servicing. Make sure that the cover is flush with the back before replacing the screws. You're done.

I for one, am tired of this type of this type of rip-off and scamming. I hope this tips helps many and saves some of you from paying a ridiculous service fee.

If this tip has helped you, let know. E-mail me at cdpays@bellsouth.net.

I think the problem is just coincidental to the lamp replacement.

i would say there is grease or food debris on the turntable support or turntable motor coupler.

The service manual is here and you can order parts from the Pros here.

Change lightbulb


most times you have to take the outer case off (the stainless steel part) and then you can see all the wires circuitry etc. thats how you get to the light bulb. make sure you unplug the microwave first and do not touch where it says electric shock hazard it will shock you even if not plugged in

The Viking VMOS200 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-530E.

One or both of these service manuals should cover disassembly and location of the bulb:

Changed lightbulb


simply changing the lightbulb should not cause a problem like that. It sounds like you accidently shorted out two terminals during the process, which probably blew out the power board on the unit. I wouldn't trust it any further unless you were to take the entire unit apart and find the "blown up" component and replace the board that it's on. Believe it or not, it's not that hard a job if you're up to it.

CHANGING LIGHTBULB ON MICROWAVE


they should be torx # 15 0r # 20 this is not aifficult tool set to get unless the manufacturer put high security type torx and those have a small nipple in the middle of the screw so the tool has a small hole in the middle of the end. Good Luck
