    tHIS IS THE SECOND TIME IN SO THREE YEARS THAT THE BULB HAS BURNED OUT. THE FIRST TIME WE WERE STILL IN WARRANTEE AND IT TOOK THREE PEOPLE TO TAKE THE MICROWAVE DOWN, OPEN IT AND REPLACE THE BULB. MUST HAVE BEEN DESIGNED BY COMMITTEE, IT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN A GE ENGINEER. THEY ARE SMARTER THAN THAT.

    We too have been thru 2 bulbs in 3 years - two times under warranty and now we need to tackle the replacement ourselves. This is obviously a design flaw. After the GE repair man replaced it the second time, the light bulb was much dimmer - they must have reduced the wattage in an attempt to make it last longer. Frustrating...

    Poorly designed microwave. I'm also on my third lightbulb! I would not recommend the Advantium microwave.

    GE is telling me that the inside bulb is not under warranty....Is it or not, our Microwave sca1001 booklet says it is but the repairman said it was not and would cost us $69 for trip cost plus $85 for labor plus bulb.



    From what it seems to read in the manual, this part is covered but he said no so I had to cancel the workorder.

    Also, do not touch the new bulb with bare skin. The oils from the skin will greatly reduce its life.

Light bulb in oven went out


Remove the top grill by removing two screws in the top. Pull the top of the grill out towards you as the bottom has pegs on it. About 6 inches from the left is metal cover that you just squeeze with your finger tips to remove. This exposes the bulb.

I have a GE microwave. Model # JVM1870BF02 and the interior light is not working. I see a circular disc in the roof inside the oven but, can not seem to slide it and remove to replace the light bulb. Can...


THAT DISC ACTUALLY HOUSES THE ANTENNA FOR THE MICROWAVE ENERGY. NO NEED TO GO INTO THAT. TAKE OFF THE FROM GRILL AND IN THE MIDDLE THERE IS A METAL COVER WITH ONE SCREW. TAKE THAT OUT TO ACCESS THE BULB.

Replace Microwave Light


Apparently there's a flaw in the design. My light has gone out/ been changed roughly evry 9 months. No longer under warranty and cost to have someone come in and replace is outrageous. Light bulb is located on top of the oven. You need to remove the top to get at it. Looked fairly easy.

Broken Bottom Latch Pawl GE Advantium 120 Microwave


You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.
