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

Once your over the range type is out of the wall, or if yours is a counter top model, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, and 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.

Hi i put a plate in which has a gold rim on it, Only for a few seconds ,has this blown the fuse inside the microwave? I have changed the plug fuse but no joy, The microwave is only about 1 year old


WORKING ON MICROWAVE OVENS IS DANGEROUS!!
That said, since you've already changed the fuse it's likely the magnetron has shot itself in the eye and died. If you want to press on and troubleshoot, here's an excellent troubleshooting guide:

Again, be sure to discharge any capacitors.

Power to back of oven going in and out of the oven but nothing happening not even the clock is coming on. please help.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. When microwave oven doesn't work at all, it means interior fuse inside the microwave has blown (usually a part inside the microwave makes this fuse blow). Sometimes a bad fuse holder inside the microwave cannot hold the fuse tight enough and the fuse will blow as well. If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work. It can also be due to a stuck or faulty door switch which might have blown the interior microwave fuse.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 microwave


My Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 Microwave / oven / grill has recently developed a problem. Every time I close the door the turntable starts rotating, even when I'm not using it. It doesn't make a noise, and doesn't seem to be going into any cooking setting, and the light doesn't come on, but it turns until I open the door, when the light comes on and the turntable stops turning. This has only recently started happening, and nothing else seems to be wrong with it, Is this safe or should I get rid of it and buy a new one. The guarantee has expired so repair may be cost prohibitive.

Cut out during heating


Possible causes include a blown fuse or high voltage diode. A bad magnetron or power transformer are also possible. I recommend taking the oven to a repair facility, or scrapping it & getting a new one. Do not attempt to repair this yourself, as microwave ovens have voltages present inside which are INSTANTLY LETHAL, & there are no user servicable parts inside.

Belling Microwave Problem


Apparently this one has a mechanical timer. That lack of electronic controls does lessen the complexity. I don't know about the specific regulations concerning British / EU microwaves, but I'm sure there's a fuse inside. In most cases, just replacing a blown fuse will not be the cure, unless one finds the reason it blew. What made it fail (if it did) is the real question. Loose fuse holder allowed excess heat? Shorted component or wiring? Or, is there a failure in the mechanical timer that's causing an open circuit connection? That can certainly happen. Also, a door switch may have failed. This is most commonly caused by opening the door while it's cooking, instead of turning the oven off first. I would suggest you contact Belling service: http://www.belling.co.uk//CMPage.aspx?pageid=130&subsectionid=85§ion=ContactBelling Good luck.
