Since the owner's manual doesn't address it, and if there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb, some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

The outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed.

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.

The light no longer comes on.


The owner's manual (online here) does not address it, so it is not intended to be changed by the user.

You would have to unplug the unit, remove the outer case, and located the bulb, usually on the right side in or near the air duct in front of the magnetron.

You can take the bad bulb to a grocery store, home center, or big box store to match it up.

Trying to locate microwave for odd size built in


It or any other counter top microwave can be placed into a "cubby hole" type of installation, as long as there is enough space on all sides of the unit for ventilation, as specified in the owner's manual.

(Yours is here)

Plus, there must be an opening for air flow.
