It snaps in place by lifting the plastic cover. Then when you replace push it in then down. It has two tabs one on each end.

Thaw out the defrost drain in the freezer. It has frozen over and the defrost water has nowhere else to go except on your floor.

SOURCE: Lights staying on

You need to replace the door switch, as it is allowing the interior light to stay on, but also it's keeping the fridge section circulating fan from coming on, and that is what is really causing the interior to heat up.

It's located in the top hinge plate cover and you can test for faulty operation by removing the switch and connecting or disconnecting the wires together to see if your light goes out and the circulating fan starts to run. If so, the switch needs to be replaced.

The part number is #6600JB3007K and costs about $8.00. You can order it from several online sellers or at www.searspartsdirect.com

Here's a diagram of your fridge and the parts list with pricing.

How do I replace the lights in my freezer


Turn off the power to the refrigerator/freezer by flipping the appropriate switch in your breaker panel. Alternatively, unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet.
2
Open the freezer door. Remove any items from the shelf directly under the light shield, then remove the shelf.
3
Press down on the top, front edge of the light shield until the locking tabs slip out of the slots. Swivel the light shield downward slightly to release it. Pull the shield out of the freezer compartment and set it aside.
4
Turn the light bulb counterclockwise to remove it. Insert the GE replacement bulb into the light socket and twist it clockwise.
5
Reattach the light shield by sliding it into place. Gently push the tabs into the original slots.
6
Insert the shelf into the freezer and reload it with the frozen food removed earlier.
7
Close the freezer door. Restore power to the refrigerator by flipping on the breaker or plugging it into the wall outlet.

Do you have plastic replacement shield for light bulb for GE Exhaust Hood - Model JV347 0XIAA - Serial GS867119C ?


I'm betting 60 watt is much higher than the wattage recommended generating way too much heat in the confined space under the plastic shield. There should be a sticker in the bulb compartment listing the maximum wattage recommended.

Can you please send me the directions to change the light bulb in my Kitchenaid Microwave Oven model # kemc308kss01?


Hi, just follow the instruction below...

1. Essentially, open the oven door and remove the plastic vent strip between oven and microwave (4 screws). There will be 2 screws under that which secure the microwave unit to the frame. Remove those...

2. Open the microwave door and remove the plastic vent shield at the top (3 screws). At that point, the microwave unit will slide out from the frame as describe above. The light is to the rear of the large silver pad (I removed mine to facilitate reaching the light). If you look at the parts diagrams online, it will be obvious what to look for. I have the light out and sure enough, OSRAM 64405S....
Took me maybe 5 minutes to remove...

Take care

How the heck do you replace a simple lightbulb in the refrigerator of a ge ss double door? Very irksome that something that used to be so simple many people now have to ask for help.


I just looked at mine... it's a GE Profile as well and what I see is a plastic cover with the two temperature dial settings and the light behind the plastic cover. Once I removed everything from the top shelf, I simply reached to the back and under the plastic cover at the bottom and I was able to grab the light bulb and unscrew it with ease. It may look more difficult than it actually is.

Have an installed GE Microwave jvm1870 with a burned out oven bulb. Have replacement bulb but can not see how to get to the old bulb to replace it.


From the owner's manual:

Cooktop Light/Night Light

On models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and EMO4000, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt, 40-watt incandescent bulb (WB36X10003), available from your GE supplier.

On models JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and JVM3670, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
20-watt halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from your GE supplier.

To replace the bulb(s), first disconnect the power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel or pull the plug.

Remove the screw at the left edge of the light cover and push on the right edge of the cover to open.

Be sure the bulb(s) to be replaced are cool before removing.

After breaking the adhesive seal, remove the bulb by either gently turning (for models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and EMO4000) or pulling straight out (for models JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and JVM3670).

Replace with the same size and type bulb.

Raise the light shield and replace the screw.

Connect electrical power to the oven.

Oven Light

Replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt, 20-watt halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from your
GE supplier.

To replace the oven light, first disconnect the power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel or pull the plug.

Remove the top grille by taking out the screws on top of the grille that hold it in place and sliding the grille to the left (opening the door makes grille removal easier).

Next, remove the light cover.

On some models, the light cover is located in the center of the top opening.

Remove the screw that secures the light cover and lift the cover off.

On some models, the light cover is located at the left of the top opening.

Lift the cover off.

Pinch the clips that hold the light socket in place and lift the socket out.

Remove the bulb from the light socket by pulling straight out.

Replace with the same size and type bulb, then replace the light socket and cover.

Replace the grille and screws.

Connect electrical power to the oven.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

There is no light in the fridge


Remove a plastic shield and replace the bulb. There is a special appliance bulb that will last longer than a regular bulb. Check for the correct size and wattage.

Is the Advantium Mod: SCA1000HCC03 the same as the SCA1001SS?


They are indeed the same bulb, a 10W halogen. Care must be taken not to touch the lamp, as the oils from the skin will shorten its life. In many recent models, the oven must be removed from the wall (a two-person job due to safety concerns) and the cover must be removed. The manufacturers consider this a "technician-only" type job to lessen their liability. You can find helpful exploded view diagrams of both ovens and order the bulbs here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
