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.

How do I replace the inside light on my R-520 ks Sharp Microwave


I don't know the exact model but most MWs have a plastic panel that pops off easily. Some, however you must take the cover off the MW oven. Just a tad more difficult.

Went to warm up a food item and after 3 seconds the microwave shut off like the circuit breaker tripped. time face went blank, light inside does not light up and stove top lights do not light. circuit...


You have a fuse behind the screen panel. You have screws inside the microwave holding the panel. you have 1-2 at the bottom. You may also have to remove the vent. It has 2-3 screws which will be inside the vent. These can be removed from the front. Once these are removed the panel will pop off and you will see the fuse The fuse can be bought at a radio shack. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE MICROWAVE! Good Luck

Microwave lights up plate turns something hums inside but the inside of the microwave never produces heat.


Sounds pretty normal but the inside is not supposed to get hot - only the food is.

Try heating a half glass of water for 1 minute if it gets hot... its working - if not then the actual microwave generating device inside has probably died.
In that case buy a new microwave oven as the cost of parts and labour to repair is usually more than cost of buying a new one.,

Have a Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave. Light bulb


no, no, no,,,its far to dangerous for you to open up the case of your microwave to change a light buld,,,
dont even think of going in there,,,
inside your microwave there are 1000,s of volts stored up in a capacitor if you tuch it you could kill yourself
have you ever seen a police stun gun working,,
it realy hurts you,,,,,
inside your microwave is the stun guns big brother
it dont just stun you,, it could kill you,,,
thats why you dont go inside it ok,,,
the light buld can be changed from inside the case normaly if it cant be, then drop it in the shop for a repair or use it with out a light in it,,
dont try and kill yourself just for a light buld
