I understand that you want to know how to remove the cover on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV205K. There are two different covers that you are able to remove for access to two different light bulbs.
If you are trying to change the Microwave Oven Light for inside your microwave:
1)To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.
2)Remove the louver by removing the three Hood Louver Screws.
3)Push in the upper tabs and pull the louver away from your appliance.
4)Remove the light bulb and replace with a new 20 watt light bulb. DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.
5)Close the Oven Light Cover by carefully pushing into place. Push the louver back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and change to hood Louver Screws.
If you are trying to change the light bulbs underneath your Microwave:
1)To replace light bulbs, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.
2)To open Light Cover, remove the screw on the light cover.
3)Replace the light bulbs with new 20 watt light bulbs. DO NOT USE BULBS LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.
4)Close the Light Cover and secure with screw removed at step 2.
If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.
Here is how I fix this problem in case someon is still looking for an answer:
1. Turn power to hood off at electric panel
2. Remove light diffusers - these are the round glasses under hood covering the light bulbs. Turn the light diffuser counter clock wise to remove
3. Remove the burned out light bulbs
4. Install the new light bulbs
When faced with the total unavailability of replacement parts, its time to get creative, and make your own diffuser cover. Flat ones can be easily made - find anything plastic that's semi-translucent (like a plastic milk bottle), and cut it with a utility knife. I have also used a utility knife to cut a polystyrene diffuser cover originally intended for a 2-ft x 4-ft suspended ceiling fluorescent light fixture. In case the diffuser cover you make wants to burn when placed close to a light bulb, replace the bulb with a CFL (compact fluorescent) bulb, which run MUCH cooler than incandescent light bulbs. Old lampshades can be cut and used, but may need to be ironed flat. The major advantage of lampshade material is that it can be folded over at the edge once or twice, which will fill space - and possibly hold the cover where a plastic sheet might be too loose. You'll know that your efforts have met with success when you can easily remove your ne diffuser cover to replace the light bulb.
If you have 120VAC on the center contact of the light socket, and a working fan, but the bulb won't light...the most likely cause would be a disconnected neutral wire (white) in the light wiring inside the hood....assuming everything else is wired correctly.
If you're comfortable with further electrical testing...let me know, and I can describe a detailed procedure to check the status of the neutral wire. Otherwise, you may need the assistance of someone familiar with electrical troubleshooting or appliance repair.
