First unplug microwave. Check to see if there is a cover in front of the bulb that can be removed with a screwdriver normally philips. If not, you must remove the entire top cover for access to the bulb housing.You will have to remove side screws if any, and just the rear screws that hold the top cover on, remember you may find that some if not all may be torc screws.In this case you will need the correct tool.Usually a T20 tamper driver.After you remove the top cover you can find where the bulb cover is and replace the bulb.CAUTION:ALWAYS BE CAREFUL TO KEEP HANDS AWAY FORM THE HIGH VOLTAGE SECTION. Sometimes the high voltage capacitor will not discharge on its own and will retain voltage plugged in or not.

I have a kenwood microwave model GJ/SS25. The display does not illuminate but when you shine a torch into the display I can see the numerals very faint. Everything else works

I would be guessing that the display is liquid crystal from your description that a torch will show the numbers up. I would be therefore assuming that the display board would need replacing. You have to be very carefull if you intend opening the cabinet as there is a large capacitor in all microwaves that holds a charge which is capable of killing a person. Even when its been unplugged for days and longer. This can be discharged by shorting the capacitor terminals as long as you dont touch them. Go forth but dont come fifth.

Where can I get a manual for a kenwood microwave GJ ss25?

Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

How do i change the light bulb on a Kenwood Ken GJ/SS25 microwave

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.

Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 microwave

My Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 Microwave / oven / grill has recently developed a problem. Every time I close the door the turntable starts rotating, even when I'm not using it. It doesn't make a noise, and doesn't seem to be going into any cooking setting, and the light doesn't come on, but it turns until I open the door, when the light comes on and the turntable stops turning. This has only recently started happening, and nothing else seems to be wrong with it, Is this safe or should I get rid of it and buy a new one. The guarantee has expired so repair may be cost prohibitive.

I have recently bought a Kenwood Microwave model KEN GJ/SS25. I notice that the turntable does not revolve. Should it? Regards John Hamon

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

For parts and service, you should contact Kenwood at the number in the owner's manual.

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

Kenwood microwave (KEN GJ/SS25) heating doesn't work but grill works

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya:
