The manual will probably not tell you how to do it, due to liability concerns.

More and more manufacturer's have chosen to stop providing an easy access panel for this.

Instead, you'd have to remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

If it's a built-in unit, it would possibly have to come out of the wall mount, too.

With a brand and model number, we may be able to give you more specific advice, along with important safety tips.

How do I change the light bulb in a JES 1451 ?


On this model, it's not meant to be a user serviceable part.

You would have to remove the outer cover, and then the light bulb is located on the air duct attached to the magnetron on the right side of the innards.

You can find helpful exploded views and order the bulb assembly from the Pros here.

Enter your full model number from the tag with suffix and no spaces.

See these help files on safety and disassembly first.

I have a Hotpoint 1425 over the counter microwave. I am having trouble replacing the two bulbs.


You can download Hotpoint / GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

It will cover changing the bulbs.

A circuit board failure can occur if a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or if the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (RVM1425XX##) here.

Changing light bulb in microwave oven


If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
