Re: changing light blub of oster microve oven

The lamp is located under the stainless top cover of the microwave which unscrews from the back and sides, the bottom corners in the back have special torx screws which are meant to thwart you from removing them but a pair of locking pliers does the trick. Then under the cover on the top of the microwave there's a black elliptical shaped base with only 1 screw holding it down, that is the lamp. Pull the female spade connectors from the lamp, unscrew it and take it out. Oster has about the worst customer service around so i have not verified that they will sell a replacement lamp but if you can find a 20W 120V replacement with spade connectors that will do.

  1. Every microwave I've seen has a fuse in the 110 VAC line. Remove the cover or access panels and look for a ceramic or glass tube fuse with metal end caps. Replace with the same value, which is often 20 Amps.

Hello - This may or may not be specifically for your model, however these are generics instructions that I found.

To replace the light bulb to the over the range microwave you will need to follow the steps below:

1. To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.

2. Remove the vent grill mounting screws.

3. Pull the vent grill away from the unit.

4. Remove the charcoal filter by pushing it inwards, then turn and pull it away from the unit.

5. Open light cover located behind filter mounting by carefully pulling up on the front edge.

6. Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent 30 watt bulb available from part distributor. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers.

7. Replacing the microwave oven light cover by carefully pushing into place. Replace the charcoal filter. Push the vent grill back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and replace the vent grill mounting screws.

Lights fan and carosel do not work

tricky one. common denominator to all parts not working could be open neutral track at back of the circuit board, or possibly a relay not switching correctly.Need testing equiptment for that.

Just stopped working.

First, Enlist the help from a friend. Second,unplug cord and remove the screws going through cabinet into microwave. Third, tilt microve down and pull off mountind plate. Forth, remove microwave from shell. (Caution even though unplug, capacitor store electrical charge) As you are looking at the front of the microwave, the fuse holder will be directly above and behind the touch key-pad. Remove with an inexpensive fuse puller found at your local hardware store. If you found any of these suggestions helpful, please rate my solution. D. Lange
