You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If the manual doesn't cover it, you'll have to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover to get to it.

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

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

Interior light burned out


Microwaves have their own type of bulb. Find an appliance parts supply to find one. Perhaps anywhere bulbs are sold if you bring the old one with you. You should be able to access the bulb easily. Some microwaves have an access door on the outside near where the bulb is at. You may require a screwdriver.

Light has burned out. How do you replace it?


The cover has to come off the microwave to access the bulb. There are several screws around the back and sides. Remove these and the cover should lift off, revealing the bulb. For your own safety, make sure that the microwave has been unplugged from the outlet for several hours before attempting this repair.

GE PEB1590 microwave oven. Interior light burned


Remove the screws from around the rear of the oven and slide the cabnet off to the rear. You should be able to access the bulb from here.
WARNING: any time you work on a microwave you have to be careful of the capacitor. Unpluge the microwave and discharge the capacitor with a large screwdriver with a plastic handle.
Be careful.

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...

Interior Microwave doesnt come on..Burned out?


If it doesn't have a door you have to remove the cover. Its likely a special microwave bulb and the socket will have to be replaced with the bulb. the bulb is built onto the socket.
