How do i gain access to the bulb to replace it?


I assume you're talking about the light that is inside the microwave & not the cook top light. Unplug unit. Normally your microwave will have a plastic or metal panel on the top front or back of the unit. (The bulb is not always changed from the inside of the unit.) Simply remove the few screws that hold the panel on & remove it. This should give you simple access to the bad bulb. Replace bulb then reassemble. Some free standing units require the entire outside enclosure be removed.

How do I change light bulb


Lamp replacement requires removal of the outer cover to gain access. There can be dangerous voltage exposed inside even with power disconnected so extra caution is advised.

Can you give me instructions on replacing the interior light on a GE Monogram Advantium 120 Micro Wave Oven. thank You


I have not worked on this model:

Normally the way to change the light is to remove the interior access panel OR ... (if no access panel) remove the oven cover to get access to the lamp. Two screws on each side and 6 or 8 on the back side. Lift and tilt and slid the cover from the front interlock seam and set it aside. DON'T TOUCH the silver can you see on the side. Find the lamp, remove and replace and put the cover back on.

Allow 15 minutes to do this job. Get a replacement lamp where appliance parts are sold.

Thanks for your question

How do i remove the cover to change the light bulb inside?


The bulb is positioned at the top of the oven, accessible only from the outside. You'll need to pull off the top and bottom trim strips, remove the bottom trim strip locators, remove 2 fixing screws from the left edge of the oven (with door open), and the 2 fixing screws from behind the top trim strip. The oven should then just slide out. You only need to pull it out 6 inches or so to gain access to the bulb cover. You'll need a T20 driver to remove the cover, then the bulb unscrews as it has an SES fitting. Bob

How to change the light bulp inside the oven?


Bulb replacement is not straight forward on this model, it requires the oven to be removed & stripped to gain access to the interior lamp... I recommend replacement by a Siemens engineer.

Light replacement


Hi, Remove the 2 screws in the grille, the grille pulls straight out (with the door open is a little easier). Then above the light is a cover plate which is removed by the two screws on the plastic frame. You will see a little tab that allows you to lift that cover plate out gaining access to that bulb. As always you should be safe and turn off the power before you repair any electrical device. Good Luck!

GE microwave interior light bulb replacement.


Your post has two distinct model numbers shown, so it's hard to be precise, but I'll try my best.

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

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. Other models are similar. It's at
http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs!

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there.

There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), too.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

If yours is an Advantium type, the following instructable should help: http://www.instructables.com/id/SZFF4WSF44XYT8X/?comments=all

Interior light gone out


There is usually a little window inside that might remove with screws, or even snap in. That should allow access to the lamp. Check the manufactures website under product support for more info.

Replacing interior light bulb in m/n 63694


On many recent models, it is necessary to remove the mircowave from the wall, then remove the cover to change the cavity bulb. They suggest that only an authoirzed servider replace them, in order to avoid liability. You can enter your actual, full model number (63694 is not enough) and get helpful exploded view drawings and order parts at http://www3.sears.com (the three is correct). Do not handle the bulbs with bare skin, it will shorten their lives. Use a clean dry cloth or gloves.
