Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven
It turns out that this is a very simple fix (JVM1790) that will cost a trip to walmart and 7 dollars (package of two 25W halogen light bulbs.) No you do not have to remove the microwave. This unit was smartly designed.
1. Unplug the unit, Unplug the unit, Unplug the unit, Did I mention, unplug the unit.
2. Locate vent on the face of microwave over the door.
3. Remove vent held on my 3 machine Phillips screws 2 on top one on left side. The top and sides should protrude out enough to be accessible.
4. Carefully remove vent plate (may take some moving around).
5. You will notice a phillip screw facing you holding on a base plate that is perpendicular to the screw. Remove this screw without losing it to the inside of the microwave.
6. Lift base plate and housing up and out, it is tethered by a 6 inch cord that will unplug carefully fish out and you will see the plug. I recommend that you unplug the housing so you have room to replace the bulb.
7. Go to Walmart, Home Depot or Lowes and buy a 25 to 40W 8 base halogen lamp. Lon-gated or short is irrelevant.
8. Do not handle the bulb with your hands as the oil from your skin will cause the bulb to prematurely burn out. We do like a premature burn outs, we would like our bulbs to last as long as possible. :).
9. Attach cord replace housing and plug and you are ready to heat up the old pizza for breakfast.

SOURCE: Interior Light
The interior oven light can be accessed in the following way:
1.Open door and remove the top grill via the 2 screws along the top edge.
2. In the interior light will be under metal plate with fasten by single screw. The halogen bulb is rated at 120V 20watt. Looks like a G-8 bulb with 8mm pin spacing with o.a.l. 1-5/8" long
