You can download Hotpoint / GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

It will cover changing the bulbs.

A circuit board failure can occur if a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or if the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (RVM1425XX##) here.

How to change the light bulb


What kind of microwave oven is this? A counter-top model or an over-the-range microwave? Do you have a brand and model number? And which light bulb do you want to replace - the cavity light bulb, or the bottom light(s) of an OTR microwave?

I need to change the interior light bulb in my Frigidaire over the counter microwave. The model # is FMV156DCA.


Good Morning Evelyn, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help replace the light bulb on your Frigidaire microwave, FMV156DCA.

    ·First, disconnect power to your microwave. This can be done by either unplugging it or at the circuit breaker panel.
    ·To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover (light cover may become very hot, do not touch glass when light is on).
    ·Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent watt bulb available from parts distributor or the manufacturer directly. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. Bulbs larger than 30 watts are NOT recommended.
    ·Close light cover and secure with screw removed in step 2.

    I hope this information proves to be helpful. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

I have to replace microwave light bulb. It's GE counter top Microwave JES1142PSE model. I hace opened the microwave and have located the bulb,but could not unscrew.I don't know needs to be pul


That exact model number is not showing up, so you may want to check the tag on or in the unit and look here for parts.
Most of the models in this class of ovens were not really made to be serviced, so GE only makes the turntable parts available.
It also sounds like your bulb is an assembly - the socket and bulb and one piece.
So your local appliance parts store should have a generic replacement for it. You should take the bulb.
Be careful when disconnecting the leads.

Can,t turn the over the stove lighting on


Replace the bulb. If that doesn't work, the "Membrane switch" under the plastic film control panel is damaged. There is no good way to fix them. Contact hotpoint to see if they still have replacement panels available for this model. If not, either live without the light or replace the whole microwave.

I have a Hotpoint Counter Saver Plus Microwave model RVM1435wd. The turntable does not rotate. How can I fix it?


If your turntable is not going around you may have one of two problems: the coupler under the glass tray may be worn and in need of replacement or the turntable motor needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Hotpoint Counter Saver Microwave not working


Please do not try to service. its dangerous to play with the internal parts of a Micro Wave. Most counter tops are pretty inexpensive buy a new one if the warranty is out.

Bulb out help


The Bulb is always accessible from inside the oven. The grate will come off in one of three ways. Disconnect power cord first.
1. Secured with screws. Screws should be visible.
2. Grate itself unscrews. Should be in counter-clockwise direction.
3. Grate held in with clips. Should pull straight out with a wiggle.
The bulb itself should unscrew in a counter-clockwise direction. Take it in as a sample when purchasing replacement.:::Spiceweasel.au

Hotpoint RVM1425BA-003 Microwave Oven Stovetop Light Does Not Work


The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inopoerable or stuck on.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and

disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
