Hi, Most covers just snap in place. If there are no screws visible, try popping the cover with aa flat blade. If you need more assistence, get me the model # so I can look your model up.

Thanks
Vic

Interior lite is out, dont know where the bulb is unless its in the rear compartment


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.

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 to change the interior light bulb in my Frigidaire over the counter microwave. The model # is FMV156DCA.


Good Morning Evelyn, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help replace the light bulb on your Frigidaire microwave, FMV156DCA.

    ·First, disconnect power to your microwave. This can be done by either unplugging it or at the circuit breaker panel.
    ·To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover (light cover may become very hot, do not touch glass when light is on).
    ·Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent watt bulb available from parts distributor or the manufacturer directly. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. Bulbs larger than 30 watts are NOT recommended.
    ·Close light cover and secure with screw removed in step 2.

    I hope this information proves to be helpful. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

perhaps if you were to take a good picture and post it we would have a better idea, as I can not imagine a metal cover over the bulb unless it is some sort of heat shield .

There are 2 screws holding the primer bulb cover down. Simply loosen and remove old bulb and replace with the new one. Make sure you have the right size bulb. There are 2 or 3 different sizes.

Good Luck!

Can't get the glas cover off the interior bulb


If you cannot remove cover with normal finger force, then spray with WD40, and grip cover with a pair of vice grips with a cloth wrapped around the jaws, and try turning it that way.
If it will still not come off, then your only option is to break it, and replace bulb, but make sure you can get a replacement cover first.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Interior light switch not working


check for power at the bulb socket with a test light, making sure your test light has a good ground, then touching the probe to the power terminal of the bulb socket, having the door open or the switch on. if power is there then check to make sure you have a ground at the socket by hooking the test lite to power then touching to the ground terminal of the bulb socket. you must have both ground and power to make a bulb light.

Your post has two distinct model numbers shown, so it's hard to be precise, but I'll try my best.
