Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to line voltages, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Smeg sa35mx microwave vibration noise when in use


The vibration can be due to either the transformer which is getting loaded when the magnetron is ON or it can be the vibration of the turn table - possible fault in the drive mechanism or irregular movement. If this is the transformer check the voltage and if it is heating up then it can be faulty , if not the mountings of the transformer can be tightened.
Also the turntable movement drive can be reset.

I have lost my instruction book for my Smeg microwave/oven which I have had approx three years. Nothing wrong with the appliance but I would like to change the clock and can't remember how to set the time...


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, and Installation Instructions as required.


I hope this helps.

I can not find a model number on my microwave but I know it is 800 watts/convection. Can you please tell me how to change the light bulb - I have removed the glass covering but cannot see how to access...


I would browse the manufacturers web site until you find your mode.
The bulbs are normally accessed from either an inspection cover in close proximity to the lamp or by removing the outer cover.
Hope that helps

SMEG SA35MX no longer heating. Light, fan & timer all still working but no heat. Approx 2 years old. Is there a fuse or other component I can replace myself ?


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Changing microwave light bulb


Check the owner's manual to see if yours is a model which allows access to the lights without pulling it down from the wall.

Accessing the lights on some models will require you to remove the oven from the wall.


If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

Many use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

I have recently been given a Smeg microwave, product No, SA987CX, but I have no instruction manual and would like to know where I can find one.


I have looked and I can't find one either. You can mail Smeg in the UK at support@smeg-service.co.uk They may be able to point you in the right direction.

Microwave light is burnt out


Accessing the internal light bulb on model KBMC140HSS bulb will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Whirlpool / Kitchenaid owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

These models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

GE microwave interior light bulb replacement.


Your post has two distinct model numbers shown, so it's hard to be precise, but I'll try my best.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. Other models are similar. It's at
http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs!

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there.

There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), too.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

If yours is an Advantium type, the following instructable should help: http://www.instructables.com/id/SZFF4WSF44XYT8X/?comments=all

Smeg Microwave Components


Generally speaking, light bulbs can be had from common sources such as department stores, home improvement stores, and hardware stores. Of course, I don't know much about what you'd call those places "down under and over a bit", but I'm sure the terms will translate well enough. *grin*
