Question about Microwave Ovens
My interior light bulb in my GE JE1590sc001 convection microwave is burnt out and I cant locate it to replace it. Please help with diagram or instructions. Thank you!
You can locate it by looking inside the cavity for an area that is perforated.
If this area is not a panel that can be removed, replacing it may (often) require removing a few sheet metal screws along the rear edge of the unit; rarely is the housing held on with more than that.
With the screws removed, lift up on the rear edge and pull toward the back.
DO NOT LEAVE IT PLUGGED IN!
Also, because there are components that may keep a charge (capacitors) for hours, I would recommend letting it sit unplugged overnight before removing the housing.
The bulb may be either a cylindrical type such as many sewing machines use or a smaller version of a standard bulb.
Neither of which anyone ever has at home, of course.
Any of the large 'home improvement' stores should have these 'made in China' bulbs at an inflated price.
