SOURCE: bulb replacement

I realize this is late but for other's here it is:
If you can get to the three phillips screws directly over the vent door then you do not have to take the unit down. Unplug the unit. Remove the top three screws over the center of the louvre and then carefully lower the vent louvre. (Lowering helps me get a better grip on the louvre assembly. Then you will slide the vent louvre assembly about 1/8" to the left and then it will pull straight back and out. In the center is an aluminum cover which has a phillips screw facing you. Remove this screw and the cover plate. The light bulb is directly to the left of the inside of the cover plate. You will see the metal tabs which hold it in place. Pull the bulb housing assembly straight out (to your right) as you face the microwave. Then you will locate your halogen 120V 20W bulb.

On this model you need to remove the outer cover.

The bulb mount will be located on the right side next to the side wall of the cooking cavity.

It's above the damper door assembly as shown in the attached drawing.

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

The bulb should be available at local grocery stores, hardware stores, and places like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.

SOURCE: change light bulb in microwave GE Profile

Please do not attempt to repair your m/wave, taking the cover off to find the lamp unit is very dangerous, their is still electrical charge in the unit even when its turned off, plesae take it to an approved engineer.

SOURCE: One surface light bulb on GE Profile microwave keeps burning out

I have the same problem. The left one burns out within a couple of hours use, the other one lasts a couple of months and is then gone. This pattern has repeated over 8 years. I replace them every now and then and then just go without until I get the urge again to fix it. Maybe smaller lower wattage lamps are worth trying...

A special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Some folks just use a hammer to tap and loosen the screw, then a small flathead screwdriver can be used to remove the screw, as shown in the photo.

Another creative solution is to use a hacksaw or a Dremel tool to carefully cut a slot in the head so a flatblade will fit it.

Lamp bulb is out


You must remove the outside cover of the microwave to change the bulb.

The light cover inside the microwave should not be removed. It is held in place with contact cement.

For disassembly help see:

Here is info from another person having that problem on fixya.

I had to go down to an appliance parts shop in PHX to get the lamp after I had taken the microwave out of the corner cabinet and disassembled it. Found the light bulb toward the right front top corner after taking the frame all apart. It was a pain but it's done !! BTW, I'm a female licensed electrician and GE told me over the phone that I would have to call a service tech to come replace the lamp (about $200). I searched the websites for the part number to get the lamp (it wasn't printed on the lampbase), searched for local appliance part stores and found the part number (WB36X10131) to pick it up. The "cavity" lamp cost me $8.65 then the cost of the gas (about 40 miles) to get it but my micro was back up and running before Thanksgiving dinner --just in time to make Lean Cuisine !!! HAHA Thanks for your reply Guru !! Have a great weekend !! Julie

The type of screw attaching the casing is called a Torx Tamper Proof screw. You need a Torx Tamper Proof Screwdriver to remove the screws. These screws and screwdrivers come in various sizes. I think the size you need is T20H.
