Delonghi AC930AMQ Microwave, Interior Light Bulb

Hi, not sure if it's a simple job or not, I have a Delonghi AC930AMQ Microwave and the interior light stopped working, so I opened the microwave up and found the bulb had burnt out, so I replaced it with another bulb from the oven which was the same type and i know works, it didn't work, so i checked the contacts of the lamp holder and pulled the center contact up to make sure of a good contact with bulb, still no luck, then i checked with a meter and  there is no neutral only about 12 volts between live & neutral but live to earth reads 240 volts, any ideas?
Thanks
L Smith

    I had the same problem and done the same as you said with the soldering.
    The light now works but my problem now is that when I switch the microwave on it blows the fuse in the plug (not the microwave) and trips the main house switch this has happened twice now any ideas???

    many thanks Trisha.

Found the problem, there is a printed fuse link on the control panel pcb. I soldered a suitable sized copper wire to replace the burnt out link and all is fine now. It is also the fuse link for the turntable aswell. Thanks for your help though, L Smith

The bulb is usually run by one of the door switches, but in some cases they are run by a relay on the board.

I would suggest you look over our files on safety & door switches here:

I need to change the interior light bulb in my Frigidaire over the counter microwave. The model # is FMV156DCA.


Good Morning Evelyn, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help replace the light bulb on your Frigidaire microwave, FMV156DCA.

    ·First, disconnect power to your microwave. This can be done by either unplugging it or at the circuit breaker panel.
    ·To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover (light cover may become very hot, do not touch glass when light is on).
    ·Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent watt bulb available from parts distributor or the manufacturer directly. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. Bulbs larger than 30 watts are NOT recommended.
    ·Close light cover and secure with screw removed in step 2.

    I hope this information proves to be helpful. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

Interior light bulb burned out


make this test and fix it. GOD BLESS YOU


  1. Light bulbIf your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.
  2. Light bulb socket & main control boardIf your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction.

How to replace interior light?


more than likely the outer cabinet will need to be removed. also, some microwaves do not have a simple screw-in bulb; instead use a bulb/socket assembly...just for fyi.

Microwave light bulb out


This is simple, and "FixYa" technical staff has clearly not looked at our model.

Take off the vent across the top (three long screws) to expose a single screw over the keypad.

Remove the single screw, and the whole keypad consile will lift up and off, likely hanging by a plastic tab/support on the bottom.

Now you can twist the light bulb plug to remove it from the support structure, change the bulb, and replace all that you've done.

Simple.

GE microwave interior light bulb replacement.


Your post has two distinct model numbers shown, so it's hard to be precise, but I'll try my best.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. Other models are similar. It's at
http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

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), too.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover.

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

If yours is an Advantium type, the following instructable should help: http://www.instructables.com/id/SZFF4WSF44XYT8X/?comments=all

Interior Light


The interior oven light can be accessed in the following way:
1.Open door and remove the top grill via the 2 screws along the top edge.
2. In the interior light will be under metal plate with fasten by single screw. The halogen bulb is rated at 120V 20watt. Looks like a G-8 bulb with 8mm pin spacing with o.a.l. 1-5/8" long

It's pretty simple as long as you have an offset phillips screwdriver...

Of course, be sure to disconnect power to microwave and be sure not to touch the new halogen bulb with fingers.

STEP-BY-STEP:
First, remove upper vent panel and remove inner filter (same directions for just replacing inner carbon filter):

Then, remove inner plastic grille (2 screws) and final screw on left side of metal "air duct" - here's where you'll need the offset screw driver (and a little patience!):

Then, you can gently lift the sheet metal panel, find the light housing, squeeze and remove/replace :)

That's it...just replace bulb and reverse for reassembly. Be sure to keep track of screw locations there are various sizes/lengths used.
