There should be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It has wiring, schematics, and troubleshooting info.

Yours will be found as JE1540WV02 (instead of 002) here: http://www.tinyurl.com/gv383

GE Spacemaker Micro/Oven Need to change (inside) light bulb on model #JVM1490SH02 Serial # TH901044K. Where is the bulb located?


While replacing the cooktop light can be done by accessing the cover on the bottom of the oven, replacing the cavity light will require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover.

The installation instructions are very handy in this case, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

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

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. Other models are similar. It's at
http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

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), too.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

In some over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Replace Blub GE Microwave oven Model 1540


On my Spacemaker, access for bulb replacement is on the top of the chassis, which is under the top/side cover. From a diagram I looked at, it appears that yours is similar. If so, you have to:

1. UNPLUG the microwave and then remove the three retaining screws that you'll find on shelf or cabinet above the microwave. Get help; the front of the microwave will be heavy when the screws come loose from the top.

2. Rotate the front of the microwave down a little and lift the rear up about a half-inch. At this point, it is free from the rear mounting plate. Set the microwave on a suitable work surface.

3. Remove the top/side cover piece. To do this, remove all the small screws on the top, the back, and the bottom edges on each side. Then slide cover back about an inch and lift it off.

4. In the middle section of the top of the chassis, you'll then see a cover above the location of the bulb. Lift it up to get access to the bulb.

It's a lame design for an over-the-range unit, but that's the way it is.

Here's a link to a diagram of what it looks like after you get the cover off: http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=jvm1640sj&searchTerm=img_00115013i05&RefineSearch=0&imgMfg=GE

GE microwave interior light bulb replacement.


Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
