It looks like this one was not designed to be replaced by the consumer, so you would have to remove the oven from the wall, take the outer cover off, then replace the "holder assembly" which is a lamp holder, lamp, and lead wires.

It is HOLDER ASM part number WB36X102 drawing "INTERIOR PARTS (2)" reference number 1207.

To remove the oven from the wall, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

If you misplaced yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts here.

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

Has stopped working. light gone off at same time. plug fuse has not broke. any ideas ?


There is a fuse inside the microwave also.It is a ceramic fuse,usually 15A.It has to be replaced with another ceramic fuse of the same rating.Bear in mind,the fuse blew for a reason,so if it is the interior fuse replace it after a search for a fault.

I would imagine that like most you will have to take of the outter shell of the unit and it will be accessible from there. Should be about 8 screws.

The light in my microwave went out. how do i replace the light bulb?


Some have a plate on the interior of the oven that can be removed for easy bulb replacement but if yours does not you will have to remove the entire outer covering to access the bulb. If you have a combination microwave/Range vent you will have to remove the entire unit from the cabinet, then remove the outer cover, replace the bulb and re-install the combination unit.

My GE Advantium Microwave first had the cook top light go out. I replaced the bulb and it worked for about a week. The control panel went haywire, and then the interior light went out. I have replaced...


In this case, you have to check the control panel. There might be wire connections and contacts that loosens. The bulbs inside the oven is connected to a switch that that only functions once the oven is in closed position.

Replace interior light on a model 8921


To replace the interior light, remove all screws holding case together. There are screws on the back at the top, down the sides, and possibly underneath. Once all screws are removed, slide the outer case off and you will then be able to access the bulb.

Interior Light


The interior oven light can be accessed in the following way:
1.Open door and remove the top grill via the 2 screws along the top edge.
2. In the interior light will be under metal plate with fasten by single screw. The halogen bulb is rated at 120V 20watt. Looks like a G-8 bulb with 8mm pin spacing with o.a.l. 1-5/8" long

Get these bulbs cheap at http://www.1000bulbs.com/120-130-Volt-G8-Base-Halogen-Light-Bulbs/
