Re: light is out

If the owner's manual does not address it, then it is probably not meant to be replaced by a non-professional.

If it is not accessable by a panel hidden by the vent grille, then the oven will have to come down out of the wall so you can remove the outer wrapper.

FGMV205K cover removal

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know how to remove the cover on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV205K. There are two different covers that you are able to remove for access to two different light bulbs.

If you are trying to change the Microwave Oven Light for inside your microwave:

    1)To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

    2)Remove the louver by removing the three Hood Louver Screws.

    3)Push in the upper tabs and pull the louver away from your appliance.

    4)Remove the light bulb and replace with a new 20 watt light bulb. DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

    5)Close the Oven Light Cover by carefully pushing into place. Push the louver back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and change to hood Louver Screws.

    If you are trying to change the light bulbs underneath your Microwave:

      1)To replace light bulbs, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

      2)To open Light Cover, remove the screw on the light cover.

      3)Replace the light bulbs with new 20 watt light bulbs. DO NOT USE BULBS LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

      4)Close the Light Cover and secure with screw removed at step 2.

      If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

      -Best Regards-

I need to replace the cooktop light bulb-mmv5208ww

You should try to at least find the same wattage. The light bulbs are not dangerous safety hazards if they are made to fit microwaves.

How do you replace the internal oven light?

You need to first unplug the microwave. Then if you look at the back/bottom, there are screws/bolts holding on the outer metal cover on the microwave. Remove all screws that you find on the outside and the outer panel will come off and give you access to the light bulb that you can then replace. Let me know if you need any more help on this.

Hello William,

I see you got back to me and I dowloaded the manual, but not sure how to repair this microwave, the inside light is burned out

and the display numbers do not light up correctly, as if some of the pixels are burn out. So I need to know what I need to replace ( LCD panel)? where is the bulb located and how do you remove and replace it, It should be easy once I know what and where to go
