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.

Interior bulb out in microwave oven (built -in)


It all depends on that all-important model number. So without that, we can only give a broad, generic answer.

The first step is to unplug the oven before changing bulbs!

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. It's at http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph, except to unplug the oven.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

See these links before proceeding:
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/safety.txt
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/disassembly.txt

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 (or 20A ceramic fuses) can be had locally in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

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

I need 3 light bulbs for this model


You did not indicate the brand and model number of your microwave.

Many use a regular 40 Watt oven bulb as a replacement.

Simplest is to remove one light bulb and take it to a retail outlet that has a lighting department and make sure your purchase the same type to replace all three.
