Hi

two VERY important things... first, turn off the breaker (power) to the unit, and second, do NOT touch the bulb with your bare hands (use thin gloves or rubber gloves), you don't want to get any thing on the bulb, like grease. I don't know this exact model but, to remove the bulb, there should be a grill on top of the microwave, take that off and there should be a panel above the bulb inside, remove that and you should be able to reach the bulb now.

Tip

I can not believe I have to jump through these hoops just to change a feaken...


The folks at GE told me you need a technician to change this bulb. Phooey, I say. It was a piece of cake. Save $ 100 and follow my instructions. I did it. I would imagine most GE microwaves would be similar.

Here's how to do it. I bought this bulb (part # WB36X951) from PARTSTORE.COM for $ 18.58 total (that's bad enough). Got the bulb within a few days.

This model GE microwave, is a stainless model with stainless inside and grilling element.

The bulb is located directly behind the front control panel (on the right), but you need to remove the stainless cover to get to it. Naturally, unplug it first. You'll need one those star bits (not sure what size), a philips head won't work. There's four of those sneaky screws on the rear. Remove those screws and the cover slides off. VOILA! It's magic! The bulb, you'll see, is sealed to a base, but it has as double slide contact. Undo this before removing the bulb. It's snapped into a little fixture. Remove the old bulb and snap new one in. Replace the contact leads and that's it.

The cover is a little tricky to get back seated properly. Along with the sneaky star screws, this is another attempt to discourage consumer servicing. Make sure that the cover is flush with the back before replacing the screws. You're done.

I for one, am tired of this type of this type of rip-off and scamming. I hope this tips helps many and saves some of you from paying a ridiculous service fee.

If this tip has helped you, let know. E-mail me at cdpays@bellsouth.net.

The Viking VMOS200 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-530E.

One or both of these service manuals should cover disassembly and location of the bulb:

Lightbulb on ceiling of oven went out. How do I


Hello :

1:Unplug the microwave oven from the outlet. Wait 20 minutes for the capacitor that is inside the microwave to discharge.

2:Unscrew all the screws around the casing by turning them counterclockwise.

3:Remove the cover by lifting off.

4:Locate the light bulb in the microwave. This will be located on either the right or left side.

5:Unscrew the light bulb by unscrewing counterclockwise. Some light bulbs are held into the socket by two notches; for these you will need to gently push on the bulb and turn counterclockwise to unsecure the bulb, then pull out of the socket.

6: Place your new bulb in the empty socket and secure by turning clockwise until tight, or if the bulb is one with notches on both sides, then guide the notches into the slot on the socket, push gently and turn clockwise until clicked into position.

7: Replace the cover and screw back on. You are now done and may plug back in the microwave.

Warning : Unplug the microwave before starting and wait 20 minutes for any residual electricity to be bled off from the capacitor.

Things you will need : Phillips screwdriver

good luck .

please rate !

Hello there :
first you will need to remove all of the screws off the back edges and the sides next turn over the microwave over and there will be 6 or 8 screws that are on the bottom edges remove them now turn over the microwave and using a flat tip screwdriver look at the seam and you can use the screwdriver to get the cover to start moving towards the back andd then once it is loose it will lift off
Now you will see the bulb towards the fromnt of the microwave simply replace the bulb and test it the microwave if it works reassemble the microwave and you are done ok ?
I hope this is very helpful for you
