Question about Microwave Ovens
When I hear of light bulbs not lasting, the first thing I suggest is to measure the voltage level of your power line at a few sockets in the home. They should measure 110-125V AC.
Measuring between ground and the larger terminal of the outlet should be virtually zero volts, and from ground to the smaller terminal should be 110-125V AC.
If these readings are off, please reply back with details. In some cases, a loose neutral can occur, causing voltages to vary at dangerous levels.
OTHERWISE, I would suggest making sure you get good quality bulbs. Sadly, since we handed over our manufacturing base to China, the products we get in return are barely adequate.
I would visit a home center like Lowe's or Home Depot (as opposed to a grocery store or dollar store or Wal-Mart) and see if they have more rugged bulbs. You're likely to find good ones with guarantees.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
