Tip

I can not believe I have to jump through these hoops just to change a feaken...


The folks at GE told me you need a technician to change this bulb. Phooey, I say. It was a piece of cake. Save $ 100 and follow my instructions. I did it. I would imagine most GE microwaves would be similar.

Here's how to do it. I bought this bulb (part # WB36X951) from PARTSTORE.COM for $ 18.58 total (that's bad enough). Got the bulb within a few days.

This model GE microwave, is a stainless model with stainless inside and grilling element.

The bulb is located directly behind the front control panel (on the right), but you need to remove the stainless cover to get to it. Naturally, unplug it first. You'll need one those star bits (not sure what size), a philips head won't work. There's four of those sneaky screws on the rear. Remove those screws and the cover slides off. VOILA! It's magic! The bulb, you'll see, is sealed to a base, but it has as double slide contact. Undo this before removing the bulb. It's snapped into a little fixture. Remove the old bulb and snap new one in. Replace the contact leads and that's it.

The cover is a little tricky to get back seated properly. Along with the sneaky star screws, this is another attempt to discourage consumer servicing. Make sure that the cover is flush with the back before replacing the screws. You're done.

I for one, am tired of this type of this type of rip-off and scamming. I hope this tips helps many and saves some of you from paying a ridiculous service fee.

If this tip has helped you, let know. E-mail me at cdpays@bellsouth.net.

Baumatic rangehood bah9005 the switch pushes in and the lights dont work , motor works when electrical switch at wall is on


Thank you for using FixYa. It sounds like there is obviously power getting to the rangehood ( the motor works) and I would suspect that it is just the bulbs that have blown.

I turned on the light of our wp rangehood and it popped; now i have no power to the microwave. i checked/reset circuit breaker, replaced lightbulb but i got nothing. it is 7 years old. how can i fix it?


First you need to replace any blown fuses. Consult the mini-manual / technical sheet hidden behind the grille or control panel.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Concerning the failed lights, we see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one year guarantee.


This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Where can i get the Dishlex ranghood filters that more than 20 years old ?


The following Australian site carries Dishlex parts. You will need to know the model number of your rangehood or the size of the filter. If you know the model number simply do a more specific search to narrow your choices.

HOW TO CHANGE VIKING MICROWAVE LIGHTBULB VMOS200


The Viking VMOS200 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-530E.

One or both of these service manuals should cover disassembly and location of the bulb:

Changed lightbulb


simply changing the lightbulb should not cause a problem like that. It sounds like you accidently shorted out two terminals during the process, which probably blew out the power board on the unit. I wouldn't trust it any further unless you were to take the entire unit apart and find the "blown up" component and replace the board that it's on. Believe it or not, it's not that hard a job if you're up to it.
