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.

I have a Ge jvm1790sk and while the microwave is running there is no internal light how do I replace it?


Unplug unit before entering.

The light bulb is behind the air vent at the center top of the microwave. Remove two screws at the very top front of the microwave and pull the vent cover forward at the top. Sliding left is sometimes necessary to release the bottom tabs of the vent cover. The light fixture will be behind this cover.

Good Luck. Reverse the above process to reassemble.

Light, fan and timer work but microwave does not


Microwaves are pretty much a non repair item. It will cost you more to fix than it would to replace.

I have a GE microwave. Model # JVM1870BF02 and the interior light is not working. I see a circular disc in the roof inside the oven but, can not seem to slide it and remove to replace the light bulb. Can...


THAT DISC ACTUALLY HOUSES THE ANTENNA FOR THE MICROWAVE ENERGY. NO NEED TO GO INTO THAT. TAKE OFF THE FROM GRILL AND IN THE MIDDLE THERE IS A METAL COVER WITH ONE SCREW. TAKE THAT OUT TO ACCESS 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.

How long does it run before it fails? Does it look like the display is getting scrambled characters? I'm leaning toward a bad magnetron, but it may be more or less than that. If you can give more details and especially the actual full model number (as opposed to the model name Advantium 120) that would help. Thanks!
