It's pretty simple as long as you have an offset phillips screwdriver...

Of course, be sure to disconnect power to microwave and be sure not to touch the new halogen bulb with fingers.

STEP-BY-STEP:
First, remove upper vent panel and remove inner filter (same directions for just replacing inner carbon filter):

Then, remove inner plastic grille (2 screws) and final screw on left side of metal "air duct" - here's where you'll need the offset screw driver (and a little patience!):

Then, you can gently lift the sheet metal panel, find the light housing, squeeze and remove/replace :)

That's it...just replace bulb and reverse for reassembly. Be sure to keep track of screw locations there are various sizes/lengths used.

SOURCE: Turntable

Remove the glass table and watch the drive spindle to see if it is turning when the unit runs; just put a cup of water so the magnetron is not without load, they can be damaged otherwise.
If it doesn't turn, gently try to turn the spindle with your fingers.  If it turns manually, then the motor has failed. If it doesn't, then some foodstuff has managed to freeze the spindle.
In the latter case, pull the plug from the wall, use some foaming cleanser (it's less wet) and try to get some under or around the spindle. Let it soak overnight, then try to turn the spindle with your fingers again.  If it's now free, mop up and remove as much of the remaining cleanser as you can, leaving the table out, put a cup of water or preferably a bowl with more volume, in the unit, let it run for some minutes to try to dry the rest of the cleanser out.
Put the table back in to see if it will now turn.
If this doesn't work, it will be necessary to replace the motor.  Since this is a unit I don't know, I can't predict if it is a DIY project or not and the dealer may ask an unrealistic price for the replacement.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

You might have set the child lock. Look in the manual. It is on P.36 in my manual.

Looks like my GE Advantium microwave just shorted. Working fine, I hit the MicroExpress option and all power lost. Can I hit a reset button?


That is very unfortunate and I don't believe it is anything to do with what you did, just bad luck.

Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

I have a GE Advantium Oven that just suddenly quit working...no signs of life. Could it be a fuse and if so, where is it located on the unit and where can I find one to replace it?
