You can find helpful exploded view diagrams for the similar model M438 here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

The model M437 is not listed, but the M438 is, and it should be similar enough to guide you. Just don't count on the part numbers being the same.

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

I realize this is late but for other's here it is:
If you can get to the three phillips screws directly over the vent door then you do not have to take the unit down. Unplug the unit. Remove the top three screws over the center of the louvre and then carefully lower the vent louvre. (Lowering helps me get a better grip on the louvre assembly. Then you will slide the vent louvre assembly about 1/8" to the left and then it will pull straight back and out. In the center is an aluminum cover which has a phillips screw facing you. Remove this screw and the cover plate. The light bulb is directly to the left of the inside of the cover plate. You will see the metal tabs which hold it in place. Pull the bulb housing assembly straight out (to your right) as you face the microwave. Then you will locate your halogen 120V 20W bulb.

That model number doesn't look quite right, but nevertheless:

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Hello, i'm looking to replace my light bulb in my jenn-air microwave oven modeljmc8130dds. any help would be greatly appreciated.


The lamp is inside the oven so it is necessary to remove the cabinet but be aware that dangerous voltages are exposed even with power disconnected.

How do I replace light bulb on my Jenn-Air microwave?


Hi.

You will need to partly disassemble the oven by removing the outer cover held by screws (the cover part 2 on the first diagram). once there you will see the bulb hand side, located on the right (the bulb is part 6 in second diagram).

Before disassemblying the appliance disconnect power, by tripping circuit breaker or unplugging the power cord.

Here the replacement part for the model JMC9158AAS, listed in title: PS391758 .
Diagrams below are also for Jenn-Air JMC9158AAS.

If you have a different model, use the links listed here: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Here the diagrams. Click on the pictures to enlarge.

Diagram 1:

Diagram 2:

Unless you are a technician or a trained DIYer, better ringing the number listed on the owners manual to call service support. A badly assembled microwave will be dangerous for your health. The capacitor inside the microwave can also release dangerous discharge, take care and observe safety prescriptions while disassembling.

Regards.

Changing the lamp in microwave of GE model pt970srss


If it is at all like a plain microwave oven, you will have to remove the screw for the cover to access the insides and likely will find that the light is not a simple screw-in bulb but a sealed package with a spare of spade terminals on top. It may be held in by one or more screws.
It is possible that this could be like a new conventional oven where you have to remove a light cover inside the cavity to access the bulb and change it

Most microwaves are similar in design, and here is how for a GE, which will most likely apply to the Jenn Air:

This site explains the process:

To discharge the cap, you can touch an insulated screwdriver across it's terminals, but just avoid the contacts and you will be fine.

HOw do i replace the inside bulb?


Hi. I just told you, there is no acces for the bulb in microwaves. Bulb replacement is not supposed to be a user level maintenance operation. You will need to remove the microwave outer cover to replace the bulb.

Here again my instructions: How do I replace light bulb.

Changing microwave light bulb


Check the owner's manual to see if yours is a model which allows access to the lights without pulling it down from the wall.

Accessing the lights on some models will require you to remove the oven from the wall.


If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

Many use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

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