The bulbs are not the problem, the problems are from either the wiring of the bulbs or the switches of the bulb, but to be precise, the problem is from the wiring on the bulbs, the bulb are not ell wired, there are conflicts on the wires somewhere that is the bulb go off intermittently.

I will suggest you get a good electrician to help trace all the wires, or see that the wires/cables are good enough and capable to power the halogen lights. Am quite sure, the problem is from the wiring, they will need to check from point to point to locate where the bridging is from.

Take care.

Over the Range Light Stopped Working

It is a good chance that the bulb (s) have burned out. I would think they would last longer than that but things are not as good as they used to be. Unplug the microwave before removing the bulbs. Especially if they are the screw in type. GE usually has two bulbs in there and they could be the halogen type that just plug in or the screw in type.

Both oven lights out

Are you buying hi quality oven grade lamps for this purpose that'll take the intense heat inside an oven? I wonder if they're halogen or tungsten filament lamps. Defective solder, frosty joints and/or ring fractures on lamp driving areas of a circuit board ARE indeed capable of causing problems with lamps.

Should halogen light keep going on and off when cooking

I wouldn't think that is typical of operation...
at what interval? (time wise)
Could be the bulb is loose, there is dirt around the connection, the bulb may be on the way out (how old and used is the bulb?)
Best regards

My GE oven isn't lighting but the electrics work...What should I do? Please help

Bulb required: Manufactured by Aglaia for GE, 130V 35W Halogen bulb

There is a grille above the door and clock/cooking controls that extends the width of the unit. You need to remove this to get to the light receptacle. With the power to the unit off (unplug if you have access to it), get on a chair with a Phillips head screwdriver. Look down from the top and you will see two screws about 6" in from the ends. If you don't see the screws, open the cabinet doors above the unit (mine were blocking the screw heads). Remove the screws and set aside. Pull girlle towards you at the top being careful not to break the tabs at the position where the screws you just removed are located. After the tabs are out the grille should lift up (there are three hook-tabs along the bottom). Set it aside. Over toward the right you will see a smaller vertical grille. Just to the left of this there is a void with a Phillips head screw facing you. Remove the screw from the receptacle tab. Lift up the receptacle tab on the right. When the receptacle is clear on the right, move the receptacle to the right to release it from the tabs on the left. Lift the receptacle up until it clears the housing it just came from. Pull it gently toward you, rotate it bottom-toward you, and you will see the bulb to be replaced. My bulb was lightly held in using white silicone and removed easily by pulling it in the direction it was pointing. A word of caution about Halogen bulbs: When handling new bulbs be careful not to get any grease on them and handle them with clean cotton gloves or a clean t-shirt. Grease and oils from even clean hands will cause the bulb to burn out quickly. Replace the receptacle being careful to make sure the electrical wires are not pinched by the receptacle housing. Replace the screw; replace the grille; return power to the unit. You're done!

Lamp Halogen ranging in price from $8.10 to $10.71.

Need to replace halogen bulb that illuminates Advantium interior

Mine is installed also, and I've had to replace the bulb twice. I wised up the second time and installed an access hole where I can pull my microwave out about 6" and access the bulb. I use a 35 watt 120v halogen bulb, with a GY 8.6 base, Lowe's part number 15797. If your's is different, the specs will be stamped on the metal beside the reflector when you remove the sheetmetal. You have to remove the microwave completely from the cabinet and remove the sheetmetal case that surrounds the entire unit. You can then access the lamp socket by looking in from the top. The first time, I took out the reflector with the socket. The bulb can be replaced by removing the two small screws adjacent to the socket on top of the reflector. My access port is a hole cut into the top. I cover the hole with a piece of sheetmetal and two sheetmetal screws. Seems to work just fine. If you do decide to cut a hole, do so with the metal enclosure off and away from the microwave to avoid getting any metal shavings into the machine!
Regards! --W/D--

Please help Fan not working in Neff U1451

Hi, the fan is one part and the bulb another. They are not connected. If the bulb isn't working simply unscrew the bulb lens and replace the bulb. About the fan motor, sometimes they cease up because the build up of grease at the back of the oven. You can try to remove the insid back plate that covers the element and fan, and try to rotate the fan manually. Try to clean it and test again. Last resource, it needs a new fan motor.
