You can find and order them easily by entering your full model number from the tag in or on the unit and also find helpful exploded view diagrams here.

Also, your owner's manual should cover that, and they usually have the GE part number inside. You can download them here.

Note that these are likely halogen bulbs, so do not handle them with bare skin. The oils on the skin will reduce their service life.

If after replacing the bulbs, they still won't work, won't shut off, or you have trouble with the fan or turntable, the filaments may have shorted, causing a surge which damaged your control circuit board.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.


At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and 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.

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

Door drops down 1/8' when open. To close need to


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, there is no adjustment. More than likely the door pivot and/or hinges are worn. They can easily be replaced, however. The part numbers are as follows:

Door Pivot - 8184922
Upper Door Hinge - W10114255
Lower Door Hinge - W10114254

You can find these parts at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the model number and locate items 6, 8, and 13 under the "Door Parts" heading.

If you have questions about this repair, or have a different model number, please post back and let me know so that I may be able to provide better assistance. I hope this helps you.

The bulb is a halogen (part number 53001905). You can view the bulb at searspartsdirect.com. Type in your model number and look under the "Base/Latch Board Assembly" heading for item 6. Although it does not list the size, it does list the type and part number. Your hardware store may be able to cross this number for you and find the bulb you need.

PS There is a better view of the bulb at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the part number above and you will see a photograph. Are you in Canada? If so, you may enquire one of these sites also to see if they will ship to Canada.

Need to replace the surface light in GE JVM1490BD 003


Bulbs can be had locally in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Or you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Surface and night light bulbs


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the bulb you need is part #AP2029997, made by GE. You can also purchase these bulbs at any hardware store. They are the half sized small base, 40 watt bulbs. If you can't find 40 watt, make sure you use a lower wattage rating. If you have questions, or if the model number is incorrect, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

If the lamp socket has power (and it's the right voltage) and the replacement lamp is the correct one and tests good, then the trouble is in the socket. It may have been damaged when the original lamp went "poof." Check for damaged contacts (burnt or broken off). Also, make sure you're seating the lamp correctly in the socket. If the bulb is a push-and-turn ("bayonet") type, you may be facing it the wrong way and it's not going all the way in.

Clock works fan turn on but no airflow and time cook, reheat and surface lights do not work


Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

Whirlpool microwave model # MH6150XLQ


Yes, there is. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number, you will find the fuse listed under the "Interior Parts" heading as item number 14 (part #815174). You can find appliance fuses much cheaper at the local hardware store. Just make sure it is the correct type and rating (refer to the fuse in the appliance for the information - these are usually a 120V 20A fuse). The reason I mention this site is because they provide excellent part drawings and provide part numbers. There should also be a wiring diagram located behind the control panel to assist you in troubleshooting. Please go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature if you require further assistance. I hope this helps you.
