SOURCE: Replacing the interior lamp inside the microwave on the top.

Yes, Bobby, it can be done. Before you begin, though, go to Home Depot and look in the tool department. There, ask for a "Husky Pro #66604". It's a 1/4" and 5/16" drive 90 degree ratchet that's about 4 inches long. While you're there, pick up a #2 1/4" drive phillips screwdriver bit. You'll use both of these to do the light. Both for about $12. UNPLUG YOUR MICROWAVE! Stand on a small ladder in front of the Microwave (MW), remove the 2 screws that hold the vent louver in place and remove the louver. You'll now see a black plastic grill (just above the door handle)remove the 2 screws with your new tools and remove the grill and the metal box that covers the relay. Now remove the 2 screws holding the horizontal metal panel that the box was sitting on. Now gently lift that panel up, (don't try to remove it) and you'll see the lamp. It's the one with 2 white wires going to it and a shiny metal cover over it. Place your index finger on the back of the cover of the lamp and gently pull toward you and lift at the same time. This will release the catch and allow you to pull it all the way out to get to the lamp. There ya go! Simple!

SOURCE: lamp broken

Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to line level (mains) voltage, 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 should be able to find replacements lamps by taking the old one to a local home improvemeant center or department store or an applaince parts store.

It's pretty simple to replace the light without having to remove the oven from the wall...as long as you have an offset phillips screwdriver...

Of course, be sure to disconnect power to microwave and be sure not to touch the new halogen bulb with fingers.

STEP-BY-STEP:
First, remove upper vent panel and remove inner filter (same directions for just replacing inner carbon filter):

Then, remove inner plastic grille (2 screws) and final screw on left side of metal "air duct" - here's where you'll need the offset screw driver (and a little patience!):

Then, you can gently lift the sheet metal panel, find the light housing, squeeze and remove/replace :)

That's it...just replace bulb and reverse for reassembly. Be sure to keep track of screw locations there are various sizes/lengths used.

I have an amana convection/microwave model acm1580as that needs a lamp replaces. I bought replacement lamp and after practically tearing appliance apart I located burnt out lamp. Now I don,t know how to...


Hi, since you have located the burnt lamp, all you need to do is to unscrew the burnt lamp and replace the new one by screwing it in.....
You only need to unscrew to remove the lamp and if you cannot remove by unscrewing because it is stuck in, then you need the assistance of an electrical tech to help remove with his pliers....

How do I replace light bulb


Replacement of the lamp should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service. The lamp is a special size!

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

But here is a basic method if you are mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.

The lamp is sat in a housing and its position is adjacent to the vent holes that it shines through.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity.
Remove the microwave cover. Purchasing a new replacement lamp will be useful as it will give you an idea of what it looks like. Locate the dead lamp remove the lamp and fit the new one. Replace the covers. Plug it back in and try the lamp by opening the door.
Hope this helps.

Here is info from another person having that problem on fixya.

I had to go down to an appliance parts shop in PHX to get the lamp after I had taken the microwave out of the corner cabinet and disassembled it. Found the light bulb toward the right front top corner after taking the frame all apart. It was a pain but it's done !! BTW, I'm a female licensed electrician and GE told me over the phone that I would have to call a service tech to come replace the lamp (about $200). I searched the websites for the part number to get the lamp (it wasn't printed on the lampbase), searched for local appliance part stores and found the part number (WB36X10131) to pick it up. The "cavity" lamp cost me $8.65 then the cost of the gas (about 40 miles) to get it but my micro was back up and running before Thanksgiving dinner --just in time to make Lean Cuisine !!! HAHA Thanks for your reply Guru !! Have a great weekend !! Julie

Light inside microwave does not work


First, Unplug the microwave. Remove the top housing or cover from the unit by removing just the screws holding the cover on.Most of the screws will be philips head.Sometimes manufactures will use quarter inch hex or torc head screws.From the rear of the cover, lift up and pull back to remove.CAUTION:BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH ANYTHING IN THE HIGH VOLTAGE SECTION.You can then locate the lamp and replace it.Always use the same wattage lamp when replacing.Remember, when reinstalling the top cover, you must slide the top and side guides into place located at the front inside cover. Use two people if possible, it makes it alot faster.Then reinstall all screws.Do not overtite.Then your ready for use.
