Quite honestly I do not recommend that any untrained person open up a microwave. I've read about too many people get across the capacitor and be KILLED. It's not worth it. Buy a new one.
A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Have a GREAT DAY and GOD BLESS YOU.

Replace oven light bulb in FMV 156D



Hello Jim Rogosheske - To replace light bulbs, first I suggest disconnecting power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging. To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover. Replace light bulbs with equivalent watt bulb available from your manufacturer or a parts distributor that they recommend. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. However, it is not recommended to use a bulb larger than 30 watts. Close light cover and secure with screw that was previously removed to release cover. Be aware that light cover may become very hot. Do not touch glass when light is on.
