I tried to change the surface light bulb in my GE Spacemaker XL1400 microwave oven. I tried to unscrew the bulb and it came apart. I think the base of the bulb is stuck in the socket. How do I get it out and replace the bulb?

Try using a oair of needle nose pliers.{be sure to unplug first} depending on position of light you may need a pair with 90 degree end.

You could try the potato trick. Take a small to medium potato. Cut off an end of the potato. Press the cut end into the broken lightbulb and unscrew the rest of the bulb out.

Why would my microwave no longer heat or cook?


micro waves use a tube inside that generates micro waves and like a light bulb they eventually blow out. the tube is not considered replaceable and cheaper to just get new unit.

GE Spacemaker XL1400 Microwave - Lights wont cut off


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.

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 operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too, due to a shorted relay.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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

Surface lights


I also have had a problem with the glass part of the surface light bulb separating from the metal base when trying to change the bulbs under my G.E. Spacemaker Microwave.. I see someone used a carrot or potato but I had not seen this suggestion before I whittled one end of a wine cork small enough to insert into the metal part of the old bulb stuck in the socket. It also worked great and in no time I was able to get the old base out and replace the bulb. I'll save the cork for next time because it seems to happen to at least one of the bulbs everytime they need to be changed. DON'T FORGET TO UNPLUG THE MICROWAVE FIRST!
