Changing bulb in DeLonghi ED 8525S-SBD
This is merely an account of how I fixed mine - do this at your own risk. The oven is full of high-voltage items which include large capacitors which are not discharged when you unplug it from the mains. You can still get a life-threatening shock from the charge which is stored in these components. 
Therefore do not touch ANYTHING electrical except the bulb connectors.
1. Unplug the oven and place on a suitable surface 2. Remove the cover. This is held by five screws at the back of the of the machine. Three are along the top and are philips type and the other two are on the bottom left and bottom right corners and are star-grip. The cover must slide backwards first before coming off. 3. Find the bulb holder. It is located on the right of the oven as you look at it from the front. Turn the oven so that its right side faces you. The bulb holder is an oval black part with two electrical connections coming off it. It is about 6-7 cm long and 3 cm wide. It is mid way in the oven (from top to bottom) and a little towards the front. It is held to the oven frame with two bent metal prongs 4. Remove the electrical connectors by sliding them backwards. 5. Bend back the prongs and lift out the bulb holder. 6. The bulb in a 20W 240V oven lamp with a standard oven lamp screw-on fitting. 7. Replace the bulb. 8. Put the bulb holder back in place, bend the prongs back to secure it, re-connect the electricals. 9. Replace the cover and screws.

SOURCE: delonghi combi/micro bulb not working , how do i change the bulb

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

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.

Found the problem, there is a printed fuse link on the control panel pcb. I soldered a suitable sized copper wire to replace the burnt out link and all is fine now. It is also the fuse link for the turntable aswell. Thanks for your help though, L Smith

Delonghi microwave AC 930AMQ. I have lost the manual, so could you tell me where the light bulb is situated, and can I purchase one from any electrical store. Many thanks Dawn.


Hello Dawn,

You should be able to get a replacement bulb from a number of places, however here is a message I got off the internet.

To replace the bulb would involve the removal of casing and the use of special screwdriver, thus invalidating the warranty.

The bulb is usually run by one of the door switches, but in some cases they are run by a relay on the board.

I would suggest you look over our files on safety & door switches here:
