Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

While your model is not there, a similar model will be shown, and those views will help you.

I think the problem is just coincidental to the lamp replacement.

i would say there is grease or food debris on the turntable support or turntable motor coupler.

The service manual is here and you can order parts from the Pros here.

the clear rubber is from the factory to keep the bulb from turning you need to cut this before you can replace the bulb . thats why the first bulb broke . there is no trick to getting them out , see if there is a glue strip on the broken bulb that if you chip off it will then turn . just be carefull what ever you do . ge thinks there microwave will die before the lights burn out ! it screams of there trust in there products . good luck
