Question about Microwave Ovens
Right for this one, it is essential that you unplug the oven from the mains and leave it to dissipate any electrical current certainly for 6 hours. Once you have done this, you wil to get yourself a phillips head 6mm screwdiver and unfasten the screws on the back that hold the casing cover to the chassis. This will expose the enternal components, then all you simply need to do, is find the lightbulb, unclip this from the holder and then replace it with one of the same make and model. Fitting and re-assembly is as straightforward as it is taking the unit to bits.
go to http://www.google.com and type in GE Microwave lightbulb........this will get you the details about the bulb, and use the same google search to get your service sheet/ disassembly guide. Easy as 1,2,3.
Hope this works for you and please contact me here if you need further assistance in this or any other matter that is of a technical nature.

I need to change the bulb inside the GE Spacemaker microwave oven (JVM1490SH 01). I cannot find where the bulb is located and can't find a removable panel panel that would give me access and that's after having taken off the front grill.

I too had a problem with the "over the range" halogen bulbs on my GE Over the Range MW oven (model PMV1870DM3)> I could not get the new bulbs to seat in their receptacles. I called GE and while the service person was very nice, no real solution was offered up except to say that the adhesive is only applied at assembly so the the bulbs don't fall out in transport. By holding up a mirror I was able to see how the bulbs are held in place. To install the bulb, insert the two prongs into the ceramic holder and gently push the bulb 'in straight'. A spring loaded mechanism will open and capture the two bulb prongs. Hope this helps.
