I would think that you can find that info either in the owners manual or right in the area where the light resides. Usually there is a sticker there with the info you need. Best wishes!

Tip

Change lightbulb in Advantium SCB1001 KSS01


I was also told that I would have to pay a technician to come out to replace the interior light bulb in my Advantium speedcook microwave, but after reading the instructions from the tip below, I was able to take care of it myself.
I ordered the parts online and , after unplugging and removing the unit from the cabinetry, I was able to follow the instructions as suggested by UNCLEMOE.
The only difference was that there were many more screws holding the cover in place. I removed all of the screws around the top and sides at the front edge of the microwave as well as the screws along the bottom of the sides and around the top and sides of the back panel. There is one additional screw that must be removed before the cover can slide back. This screw is on the right side of the microwave in a silver dollar sized indentation.
Oh, don't forget not to touch the halogen light bulb with your bare hands to avoid shortening the life of the bulb.

It's crazy that GE should expect customers to pay a technician $100 each year to replace a simple lightbulb, but thanks to FIXYA.com I was able to do it myself in about 40 minutes with a little help to lift the unit.

as a side note, one of the screws was in so tight that the screw was stripped in an attempt to remove it. A little thing called GRABIT and a power drill took care of that problem in no time. check it out at 4GRABIT.com

I think the problem is just coincidental to the lamp replacement.

i would say there is grease or food debris on the turntable support or turntable motor coupler.

The service manual is here and you can order parts from the Pros here.

Light bulb in oven went out


Remove the top grill by removing two screws in the top. Pull the top of the grill out towards you as the bottom has pegs on it. About 6 inches from the left is metal cover that you just squeeze with your finger tips to remove. This exposes the bulb.

Replace Microwave Light


Apparently there's a flaw in the design. My light has gone out/ been changed roughly evry 9 months. No longer under warranty and cost to have someone come in and replace is outrageous. Light bulb is located on top of the oven. You need to remove the top to get at it. Looked fairly easy.

Absolutely. That's why they make shop bulbs to use in one's portable garage work light and garage door opener.

Slamming the door of a microwave is never good idea!

Another factor is touching the new bulb with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

You are describing the little bulb in the front. The speedcook light is a different bulb

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.
