That's covered on pages 35 & 36 of the owner's manual here.

Cooktop Light/Night Light

On models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
EMO4000, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
40-watt incandescent bulb (WB36X10003), available
from your GE supplier.

On models JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and
JVM3670, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
20-watt halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from
your GE supplier.

To replace the bulb(s), first disconnect the
power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
or pull the plug. *

Remove the screw at the left edge of the light
cover and push on the right edge of the cover
to open.

Be sure the bulb(s) to be replaced are cool
before removing. After breaking the adhesive
seal, remove the bulb by either gently turning
(for models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
EMO4000) or pulling straight out (for models
JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and JVM3670).

Replace with the same size and type bulb.

Raise the light shield and replace the screw.
Connect electrical power to the oven.

Oven Light

Replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt, 20-watt
halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from your
GE supplier.

To replace the oven light, first disconnect the
power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
or pull the plug.

Remove the top grille by taking out the screws
on top of the grille that hold it in place and
sliding the grille to the left (opening the door
makes grille removal easier).

Next, remove the light cover.

On some models, the light cover is located
in the center of the top opening. Remove the
screw that secures the light cover and lift the
cover off.

On some models, the light cover is located at the
left of the top opening. Lift the cover off.

Pinch the clips that hold the light socket in
place and lift the socket out.

Remove the bulb from the light socket by
pulling straight out. Replace with the same size
and type bulb, then replace the light socket and
cover.

Replace the grille and screws. Connect electrical
power to the oven.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

* If your control board was damaged (lights won't come on, won't go off, fan or turntable not working right) after a cooktop light bulb blew or was inserted or removed while power was on, see here.

Replace the light bulb, if that is not enough , check contact to lamp holder.

If microwave is not working at all, check also door switch , fuse, and control panel.

How do i change the bulb in the daewoo KOR6N35S?


Most microwaves require the removal of the case to get to the bulb. There's usually 6-8 along the back and sometimes 4 under the microwave along the side of the case.

GE over range microwave JVM1870SK03 stops working approximately 3-4 minutes into heating cycle


<--- I'm happy to help you. Yes, it's overheating and the magnetron's thermostat is opening to protect the magnetron until it cools, then it turns power back on.

It could be due to a failed or unpowered cooling fan motor. Have your cooktop lights gone out recently?

When a cooktop bulb goes out, a surge may occur if the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

I repair boards in such cases.

It may instead be a dirty filter.

If the unit is set to recirculate, it will use a charcoal filter, which should be replaced every 6-12 months.

If it's not set to recirculate, then the grease filter may just need to be washed.

Or your ductwork may be blocked by an animal nest or debris. The entire duct and the outside vent / flap must be clear.

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

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

My GE Profile Jvm1870sk03 microwave built oven does not work. There is power, the clock, timer works. If I press the button to heat the clock shows it's going on but there is no heating process go


Most likely door switches. Companies these days use switches with small 3/16 terminals and they tend to get hot and make the switch go bad. When I replace them I put in a 20 amp rated switch with 1/4 inch terminals, and a short section of better wire to the switch. If you make better connections it stops the wires from getting hot and the switch will last a long time.

Beware of this place, microwavedisplay.com. Of late, some are seeing very long turn around times. They don't respond to emails or answer the phone. See http://www.whoila.com/blog/?p=725 for some recent experiences.
