Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Im am trying to find the lightbulb thats underneath the microwave cannot find the bulb or how to install it...
If your GE microwave DOES NOT HEAT, then the magnetron is probably shot - I have a GE Profile Spacemaker microwave that had this problem....if you are a bit handy, you can do the repair yourself AND GE will ship you a replacement magnetron for FREE, as it is covered for 10 years under the warranty.
See this web site for instructions: http://hubpages.com/hub/GE-Spacemaker-Microwave-Magnetron-Warranty-and-Repair
Hope this helps...saved me several hundred dollars!!!

I had a small fire in my sister & brother-in-law's microwave, now there is no digital clock and the microwave will not come on at all. Please tell me there is a reset button somewhere or something that I can fix, they are not speaking to me now. I can not afford to buy a new microwave...PLEASE HELP ME IF POSSIBLE!
Thank you to anybody that can assist me. Renee

After searching GE's site high and low I finally found some pitifully basic instructions which I've elaborated on here.
Bulb required: Manufactured by Aglaia for GE, 130V 35W Halogen bulb GE #WB08X10051 or equivalent.
There is a grille above the door and clock/cooking controls that extends the width of the unit. You need to remove this to
get to the light receptacle. With the power to the unit off (unplug if you have access to it), get on a chair with a Phillips
head screwdriver. Look down from the top and you will see two screws about 6" in from the ends. If you don't see the
screws, open the cabinet doors above the unit (mine were blocking the screw heads). Remove the screws and set aside.
Pull girlle towards you at the top being careful not to break the tabs at the position where the screws you just removed are
located. After the tabs are out the grille should lift up (there are three hook-tabs along the bottom). Set it aside. Over
toward the right you will see a smaller vertical grille. Just to the left of this there is a void with a Phillips head screw facing
you. Remove the screw from the receptacle tab. Lift up the receptacle tab on the right. When the receptacle is clear on
the right, move the receptacle to the right to release it from the tabs on the left. Lift the receptacle up until it clears the
housing it just came from. Pull it gently toward you, rotate it bottom-toward you, and you will see the bulb to be replaced.
My bulb was lightly held in using white silicone and removed easily by pulling it in the direction it was pointing. A word of
caution about Halogen bulbs: When handling new bulbs be careful not to get any grease on them and handle them with
clean cotton gloves or a clean t-shirt. Grease and oils from even clean hands will cause the bulb to burn out quickly.
Replace the receptacle being careful to make sure the electrical wires are not pinched by the receptacle housing. Replace
the screw; replace the grille; return power to the unit. You're done!
To find the bulb I Googled "General Electric WB08X10051" and "Lamp Halogen WB08X10051" and found options ranging
in price from $8.10 to $10.71 ($13.50 with GE).
