Question about GE JVM1540SMSS Microwave Oven
I never got a manual with this and I need to change the light bulb and I can't figure out how to open the thingy that houses the light bulb. Thanks.
Usually, you have to remove the outer case after pulling the power cord and wait for maybe 10 minutes to make sure the HV power supply has discharged itself. The lamp should be plainly visible at this point. Be sure to use the same wattage lamp as the original. Good luck!

Replacement of the
lamp should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!
this only if you are competent.
But here is a basic method if you are
mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.
The lamp is sat in a housing and its
position is adjacent to the vent holes that it shines through.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity.
Remove the microwave cover. Purchasing a new replacement lamp will be useful as it will give you an idea of what it looks like. Locate the dead lamp remove the lamp and fit the new one. Replace the covers. Plug it back in and try the lamp by opening the door.
Hope this helps.
