It depends on the brand and model number.

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

You can download Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You should be able to download your LG / Goldstar manual here. If not, you can contact them via that page to order one.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

How to change the hood light


By hood light I assume that the light you want to replace shines from the bottom of the unit, not the light inside the microwave. If so check out he Disassembly video on this site: Maytag Microwave Light Bulb Not Working

FGMV205K cover removal


Good Afternoon Friend,

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.

      -Best Regards-

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs


My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.

The hood light blew and I replaced it. It worked


The cause could be anything from defective bulbs(least likely, to a bad bulb socket or vibration during operation. A voltage measurment at the bulb will tell you if it is getting too much.

Kenmore over range microwave oven / no power at all


Unfortunately, there is a good chance that when the bulb shorted out, it damaged the control board. The only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. The relays for the fan and the lights are part of the board. The power should always be disconnected when these bulbs are replaced or the board will be damaged. We would have an appliance repair person take a look to see what the deal is with the microwave.

GE MIcrowave model JVM1631BJ01 hood lights won't work


The part that controls that is goes through your control panel on your microwave. For the lights to come on to start with the door being closed switches have to be working right and when you press start the lights come one. When the microwave is through cooking and you open then close the door then the lights should go out. The logic IC on the control panel board that detects all these events is not being reset correctly. Unless you get a microwave tech to track down the component on the control panel circuit board it is not something that you could do on your own since it takes voltage and signal checks with the proper equipment and then some soldering and desoldering of the defective component(s). Good luck and God bless.

Hood lights do not turn off...


The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This is far less than a replacement circuit board, assuming it's even available anymore.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on.

Light socket is dead on my Maytag


Yes, this is caused by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb or by the filaments shorting when the bulb blows. This is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95. If you or a friend decide to send it to us, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Need replacement bulbs for over-range hood


These are 20W 120V bulbs with what's called the intermediate base. The new Panasonic part number is ANE6030540AP and you can get them at Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com or Vance Baldwin at http://www.vancebaldwin.com You should also be able to get them at local appliance parts stores, Lowe's (or similar) or even a large grocery store. You can also use Sharp part # RLMPT0003YBE0 from either of the above sites.
