Question about LG Microwave Ovens
You may need to replace the light bolb
Posted on Jul 18, 2008
Assuming everything else is working, then I would assume the bulb is out.
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.
If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
If you don't have your instructions, please reply back with your brand and model number.
Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.
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.
