Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven
GE Advantium 120 900 Watts Convection / Microwave
How do I fix the light inside this model unit? Is it necessary to take the microwave apart?
Hello, This is a repeat of a previous post I made some time ago. It is for your make/model, if it is built in....
Mine is installed also, and I've had to replace the bulb twice. I wised up the second time and installed an access hole where I can pull my microwave out about 6" and access the bulb. I use a 35 watt 120v halogen bulb, with a GY 8.6 base, Lowe's part number 15797. If your's is different, the specs will be stamped on the metal beside the reflector when you remove the sheetmetal. You have to remove the microwave completely from the cabinet and remove the sheetmetal case that surrounds the entire unit. You can then access the lamp socket by looking in from the top. The first time, I took out the reflector with the socket. The bulb can be replaced by removing the two small screws adjacent to the socket on top of the reflector. My access port is a hole cut into the top. I cover the hole with a piece of sheetmetal and two sheetmetal screws. Seems to work just fine. If you do decide to cut a hole, do so with the metal enclosure off and away from the microwave to avoid getting any metal shavings into the machine!
If, however, yours is an over the stove type, it may be possible to remove the front grille and replace the lamp.
