How to change the internal light?

Hi Tony
Well, if the manual says nothing then I'd give it a go yourself.
Not sure about your particular unit. So.... it's up to you....
I found that my light was simply covered by a plastic lens plate. I flexed it slightly and it opened up. Others have a single screw to remove so that the lens moves to one side.
Then I reached inside and turned the bulb & remove it.
It was a low wattage bulb rated at the same voltage as the AC wall voltage. But it's often stamped on the side. Just match up the same base type and specs.
Is this your Microwave

Sharp R1480 OTR microwave night and work light won't turn on

Check you are getting 115 V with the bulb in circuit (safest way to test this is to solder a couple of bits of wire to one of the bulbs so you can access the terminals with the bulb inline (be careful), and then measure voltage across it.) The load imposed by the bulb may be causing the power supply to go into a protection mode - usually only if bulb is shorting, but may be a problem with the power relay. If there is a problem with the power supply, through the control board relay or otherwise, this will tell you for sure. Otherwise, if there is definitely the right voltage to a good bulb, then it will light. Check that the bulb is definitely making contact well, and make absolutely sure you have the correct bulbs for 115v, not the 220/240v ones. If this gives you no luck then please ask again with details of what you found. Hope this helps :)

Hi I have a siemens inno-wave HF17055GB Microwave and the plate turner is not turning, otherwise it seems to be working? help please

Replace the motor. The teeth in its gearbox have probably been damaged when trying to turn the plate by hand.

The light does not work in the microwave of a built in GE oven/microwave combo, model JKP61G001BG. Where is the bulb and how do I get to it


Two VERY important things... first, turn off the breaker or unplug (power) to the unit, and second, do NOT touch the bulb with your bare hands (use thin gloves or rubber gloves), you don't want to get any thing on the bulb, like grease. To remove the bulb, there should be a grill on top of the microwave, take that off and there should be a metal panel above the bulb inside, remove that and you should be able to reach the bulb now. Make sure you pay attention to how the bulb is positioned and install the new bulb the same way. Please contact me if you need any more help.

Panasonic bulb nn a753

First, get the bulb part #F612E4W00AP or equal. Next, you should find a few screws around a plate in the unit through which the light shows through. Carefully remove them and the glass lens. When replacing the bulb, be sure it is in securely.

Jenn-Air Microwave turntable not working, microwave works

It's probably a cracked coupler or a weak, slipping motor.

Where is the light bulb located?

Unscrew the vent at the top of the microwave(2 phillips head screws)
inside to the right you'll see another screw holding a metal panel. Unscrew this and take the panel off and you'll see the bulb, which will unscrew counter-clockwise
