Question about GE JVM1490 Convection/Microwave Oven
I'm having a problem figuring out how to change the iside light. There is inside the compartment a hatch on the right side, with one screw holding it in. Is this where the iside light is to be found??
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
If that's not enough, here is my standard reply on this subject:
Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, 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.
You can get them for many GE models here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/
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.
