Yes, you should be able to match them up at a local hardware store, or home center.

But I'd recommend a non-Chinese type if you can them. They hold up better.

You can also find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and online part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

I have a Kenmore microwave mounted above my stove. The light that lights my stove is blown and I can't find the right replacement bulb. It has two little prongs that should fit into the unders

Are these little spot lights? About the size of 1/2 dollar round and maybe 1.5 -2 inches long? 2 prongs about 1/2 inch apart? Take one of those lights and show it to a local hardware dealer like "Lowes". There are may types and some are 12V some are 110V. Thats why I suggest showing to the local hardware guy.

The lightbulb cover on my whirlpool WFE361LVS wont unscrew, how do I get it off, I need to change the bulb

Most microwave ovens lamps' outlast the life of the microwave. So, most of them do not have access covers for the oven lamp. The lamp has to be replaced from inside the unit. Also, the newer units tend to use bulb assemblies rather than just a screw in type bulb. Call Whirlpools 800 help line or your local appliance parts store and have them look it up for you.

What replacement bulb?

I dunno ... what replacement bulb??? Is that question or a statement?

May I suggest you open the access panel if there is one or the oven cover if there is no access panel. Take the lamp out. There will probably be a number on it ... and that is what you want.

Find it at your local hardware store or appliance parts place ...or search it at

I need to know the size of the lightbulb for lighting the work surface below the microwave; they have them at my local hardware (Canadian Tire) but there are a lot of different sizes, I could not see the...

The bulb is a halogen (part number 53001905). You can view the bulb at Type in your model number and look under the "Base/Latch Board Assembly" heading for item 6. Although it does not list the size, it does list the type and part number. Your hardware store may be able to cross this number for you and find the bulb you need.

PS There is a better view of the bulb at Just type in the part number above and you will see a photograph. Are you in Canada? If so, you may enquire one of these sites also to see if they will ship to Canada.

Need to replace the surface light in GE JVM1490BD 003

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

Or you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Surface and night light bulbs

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the bulb you need is part #AP2029997, made by GE. You can also purchase these bulbs at any hardware store. They are the half sized small base, 40 watt bulbs. If you can't find 40 watt, make sure you use a lower wattage rating. If you have questions, or if the model number is incorrect, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Replace light bulb on Whirlpool GMC305PDS07 Microwave oven without a $150 service call. (The bulb does not unscrew from inside the oven.)

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

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

On 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, 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.

You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

See these links before proceeding:

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 locally 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.
