Change light in whirlpool gold accubake system upper microwave oven


If you need to replace the bulb for the interior cabinet, you'll need to remove the two screws that holds the upper grille in place with a Philips screwdriver.

Access to these screws are from on top of the microwave.

Once you remove the grille, you should see a white plastic cover with a release tab; pop the open and you'll have access to the bulb compartment:

Watch the following youtube video- the instruction phase of removing the grille and access to the bulb compartment starts at 2:40

How do i change the bulb in a brother hi speed cooker microwave . It is about 30 years old and works very well


If no access from the front you will have to get at it from the back. Remove the back covers, the light socked will probably be held in place by a few screws or clamps. remove the entire assembly as one unit, replace the bulb and re-install.

How to change light bulb in microwave?


Found this post on another fixya-type site: below is the link..
Here's a repeat of Kai's instructions so you don't have to scroll down. I just replaced mine and it was a snap. Just a few Phillips screws and a few tugs. No need to pull the unit completely out as you can access the bulb after it's about half way. No need to disconnect any wiring harness except pulling the bulb out of its socket. I used the 10w (G4 12V) replacement bulb from Home Depot at $6. The light is a bit brighter but there've been no problems with fuses.


1) Turn off power to the unit
2) Open the lower oven door
3) Remove the side trim screws and pull the trims down and out.
4) Remove 2 screws on the sides of the control panel.
5) Open the Microwave door. Remove the 3 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the microwave. You can then remove the Air Vent Cover by pushing the control panel up and pull out slightly at the bottom.
6) Remove the 4 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the lower oven and remove the Air Vent Cover. (You may have to remove the left under side bracket of the Microwave door temporarily just for the Air Vent Cover to clear the screw of the bracket. Re-secure the side bracket of the Microwave door panel as the front panel may fall)
7) Remove the 2 screws which held the Microwave unit in place behind the Air Vent Cover on step 6.
8) Wiggle the Microwave unit out about half way to expose the light bulb unit on top center
9) Wiring to the Control Panel will prevent you from pulling the Microwave unit out any further. And you don't want to do that as the unit may fall. Space is cramped, but working carefully with pliers you should be able to release the springs which held down the light bulb unit and change the bulb.

It "popped" a circuit breaker


NORMALLY THERE ARE SCREWS TO REMOVE TO ACCESS A PANEL TO REMOVE THE LIGHT BULB. IF THERE ARE NOT, THEN THE EXTERIOR COVER MAY NEED TO BE REMOVED TO ACCESS THE LIGHT BULB. THIS EXTERIOR COVER HAS SCREWS.
MAKE SURE YOUR CIRCUIT BREAKER IS OFF BEFORE YOU TRY TO REPLACE THE BULB.

Need to change burned-out light bulb in microwave ... no visible way to remove old one?


Basically you will need to slide the microwave out of the oven shell to gain access to the top side of the microwave, then it's a simple swap. To do this, you will need to remove the side rails * screws, pull the entire oven forward. Remove 2 screws holding the control panel at the top and remove both the plastics vents above and below the microwave. The remove 4 screws, 2 on each side that hold the microwave to the shell. Next you need to pull the microwave forward from the shell like in the picture part way out. Mine was tight and took more force than I expected so I was not sure if I got all the screws or not. It was eventually persuaded. Make sure the power is switched off and don't pull the entire oven on top of you. Have fun._509.jpg

GE Profile convection with light bulb burning out


Multiple possibilities.
  • Being used as a night lite. (continuous use)
  • Not using a light bulb designed for use in a oven.
  • Inexpensive bulb. (very low lamp hour rating).
  • Oven door slamming.
  • Over voltage condition.
  • (My favorite) Light bulb swapping Gnomes.
Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.

Jenn-air microwave light bulb


This is an older (Mfgr. May, 1987) microwave oven. Functions perfectly, works an looks good to this day, just no light inside. I searched a couple of websites looking for parts for this unit and appliancepartspros.com provided schematics of the product that I own. From those drawings, it was determined that the microwave oven will have to be slid out of the cabinet above the built-in oven in order to change a $2.37, 40W light bulb. Just a handfull of scrws retaining the oven and exhaust baffles and I'll get it out (onmce the New Year's Eve hangover disappears). The engineer who designed a system like this must have been on an Acid Trip. I haven't looked closely at newer microwave ovens, but I'd have to believe changing a crummy light bulb would have to be made easier than this during the preliminary engineering phase of design.
