On this model, you have to remove the outer cover of the oven, then you'll find the lamp in the socket mounted on the air duct above the magnetron on the right side of the oven.

The DMO24S is essentially a rebranded Sharp model R-530E, so its service manual (here) will tell you how to disassemble it, but the proper part numbers are found in the DMO24 parts list here.

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

At that last link, when looking for Dacor parts, you have to search by part number only.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

How to change a lightbulb in a model nn-656ba panasonic microwave oven


I may be wrong on this model, but most microwaves need the top/side panels removed to get to the. Light. Afer removing the screws raise the back a couple of inches then slide cover towards the rear in order to slide the top potion out of its retaining clips. They do sometimes get stuck with food etc.

Tip

I can not believe I have to jump through these hoops just to change a feaken...


The folks at GE told me you need a technician to change this bulb. Phooey, I say. It was a piece of cake. Save $ 100 and follow my instructions. I did it. I would imagine most GE microwaves would be similar.

Here's how to do it. I bought this bulb (part # WB36X951) from PARTSTORE.COM for $ 18.58 total (that's bad enough). Got the bulb within a few days.

This model GE microwave, is a stainless model with stainless inside and grilling element.

The bulb is located directly behind the front control panel (on the right), but you need to remove the stainless cover to get to it. Naturally, unplug it first. You'll need one those star bits (not sure what size), a philips head won't work. There's four of those sneaky screws on the rear. Remove those screws and the cover slides off. VOILA! It's magic! The bulb, you'll see, is sealed to a base, but it has as double slide contact. Undo this before removing the bulb. It's snapped into a little fixture. Remove the old bulb and snap new one in. Replace the contact leads and that's it.

The cover is a little tricky to get back seated properly. Along with the sneaky star screws, this is another attempt to discourage consumer servicing. Make sure that the cover is flush with the back before replacing the screws. You're done.

I for one, am tired of this type of this type of rip-off and scamming. I hope this tips helps many and saves some of you from paying a ridiculous service fee.

If this tip has helped you, let know. E-mail me at cdpays@bellsouth.net.

How do i change the lightbulb in my Zanussi ZCM32T Combination Oven


hi

two VERY important things... first, turn off the breaker (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. I don't know this exact model but, to remove the bulb, there should be a grill on top of the microwave, take that off and there should be a panel above the bulb inside, remove that and you should be able to reach the bulb now.
