How do I replace the lightbulb in the microwave and what light bulb do I need to purchase?


to replace the bulb in microwave ovens you will have to take the outside case off the unit as the bulb placement is not accessible from inside the oven
when you get to the bulb take it to an appliance repair shop and they will have a bulb

Tip

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.

Lg lmh2016st microwave shorted out after changing lightbulb now doesn't work


We see and repair this a lot. The problem is on the controller assembly.

There is a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Arcing sparking to carousel wheel. have 8 year old GE advantium 120 microwave oven. Was working just fine with a burnt out lightbulb but when I replaced the over head lightbulb it started to arc to the...


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

Cuisinart microwave CMW-100. How do I change the lightbulb?


You need to remove the cover from the oven. Pull the plug first! Remove the Philips Screws. There are two special screws that are meant to prevent your proceeding further. No standard driver will fit these screws. You can remove them with small pliers gripping the outer edge of the screw and turning counter clockwise. If you are not familiar with capacitors, get somebody who is familiar. The light socket snaps in. Unsnap it. The lamp is taped to the socket with cellophane tape. I have never removed the lamp nor do I know the number. Do not plug in the oven with out the cover!!!!!
