Remove screws and outer shell, then lift up and off the shell. You will now have access to the light bulb. If bulb is bad, replace it, if it looks good, test the wiring to the bulb with a voltmeter to determine if it is getting power.

When in use inside lite stopped working how to fix?


There should be a small door on the side of the microwave with a screw on it, just remove the screw and that should give you access to the bulb "unplug the microwave" If there is no door present, unscrew the top cover to access the bulb.

The lite dose not work inside how to you change


If the owner's manual doesn't cover it and there's no obvious cover on the side or rear, you'll have to remove the outer wrapper.

See these files:

http://wwww.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://wwww.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

The light is often located on the right side in the air duct attached to the magnetron or on the top of the oven cavity.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

Some use halogen lamps, in which case you must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

Was microwaving a hotdog on a paper plate covered by another paper plate and the microwave just kind of went poof and now nothing lites up (display) and it wont work. I checked the breaker it is on and...


Yes there is.

Unplug the MW.
Uninstall from wall mount (if installed that way.).
Remove outer cover by removing the screws at back and (possibly) bottom sides.

Locate fuse. Replace only with an equivalent type and amperage.

You can test the MW without reinstalling or putting the outer covering back on.

How do i change lite bulb in my microwave


If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

See these links before proceeding:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

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

Spacesaver XL1800 Nite Lite will not go off


The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we regularly 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 inoperable or stuck on.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site,
