You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If your manual does not cover it, then it's not meant to be changed by the user.

In that case, you would need to remove the oven from the wall, take the outer cover off, and find and replace the bulb.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Also at our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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

How to change the hood light


By hood light I assume that the light you want to replace shines from the bottom of the unit, not the light inside the microwave. If so check out he Disassembly video on this site: Maytag Microwave Light Bulb Not Working

GE 1800 XL not heating, no power, except fan works and clock also


Hello :

It could be bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

or it could be problem with the control panel .


good luck .

please rate !

Have a Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave. Light bulb


no, no, no,,,its far to dangerous for you to open up the case of your microwave to change a light buld,,,
dont even think of going in there,,,
inside your microwave there are 1000,s of volts stored up in a capacitor if you tuch it you could kill yourself
have you ever seen a police stun gun working,,
it realy hurts you,,,,,
inside your microwave is the stun guns big brother
it dont just stun you,, it could kill you,,,
thats why you dont go inside it ok,,,
the light buld can be changed from inside the case normaly if it cant be, then drop it in the shop for a repair or use it with out a light in it,,
dont try and kill yourself just for a light buld

The vent fan and surface light do not work


1. Check your circuit breaker for this m/w. Reset it.
2. Microwaves usually have 20A fuse inside. It could be broken.

After changing a blown oven light, the clock works but nothing else turns on, including the fan, light, microwave


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.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Where is the light bulb located?


Unscrew the vent at the top of the microwave(2 phillips head screws)
inside to the right you'll see another screw holding a metal panel. Unscrew this and take the panel off and you'll see the bulb, which will unscrew counter-clockwise
