Question about LG LRM1230W Microwave Oven
PLEASE CAN YOU ADVISE ME HOW TO CHANGE THE LAMP IN MY LG 1428 S MICROWAVE OVEN. tHE MANUAL JUST SAYS CHANGE THE GLOBE BUT DOES NOT TELL YOU HOW TO OR EVEN HOW YOU CAN TEST THE UNIT. i WILL REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.
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.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
