    I have the same problem. Does this oven have only ONE bulb. When it went out I unscrewed the cover and unscrewed the lightbulb which exploded. I should have unplugged the microwave before doing this. Will any lightbulb work. Pls advise proper bulb to fit and hot to install/screw in.

    Need a source on Internet or in Charlotte, NC or Albemarle, NC for replacement bulbs under the microwave unit. The bulb base reads: SHD 130V 40W but the bulb is an odd shape and neither Lowes nor our local electrical supply store carry them.

Hi Mike.

Difficult to say on yours. You may try the following. On the back or side, if there is a little cover that's screwed into the panel. Otherwise browse around on the inside. Be sure to unplug the micro before checking. Once found be sure to replace with a microwave lamp and not a fridge lamp. There is a difference. Good Luck,JUS004

That model number doesn't look quite right, but nevertheless:

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.

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.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but 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 bulb assembly (bulb and socket are all one piece) is part number
WB36X951.

It is located on the air duct assembly where the door switches are mounted.

You can see an exploded view diagram here.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb assembly.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

See these links before proceeding:

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H 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.

If you're not able to find the bulb assembly at your local appliance parts store, you can order one here.

How do i replace the light bulb in my maytag microwave oven. the bulb broke in the socket.


The cooktop light bulb(s) is(are) located on the underside of the microwave oven, and is(are) replaceable. Remove bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace bulb, close bulb cover, and secure with screw. Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb cover, and is replaceable. Remove 2 screws on the vent grille, tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure with screws.

You should try to at least find the same wattage. The light bulbs are not dangerous safety hazards if they are made to fit microwaves.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

If your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.

  • Light bulb socket & main control boardIf your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction

    I have to replace microwave light bulb. It's GE counter top Microwave JES1142PSE model. I hace opened the microwave and have located the bulb,but could not unscrew.I don't know needs to be pul


    That exact model number is not showing up, so you may want to check the tag on or in the unit and look here for parts.
    Most of the models in this class of ovens were not really made to be serviced, so GE only makes the turntable parts available.
    It also sounds like your bulb is an assembly - the socket and bulb and one piece.
    So your local appliance parts store should have a generic replacement for it. You should take the bulb.
    Be careful when disconnecting the leads.

    How to halogen light bulbson my microwave JVM3670Sk03 I have changed one I know there is another one how do i change it please advice thanks anna


    That's covered on pages 35 & 36 of your owner's manual.

    If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download it here.

    Cooktop Light/Night Light

    On models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
    EMO4000, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
    40-watt incandescent bulb (WB36X10003), available
    from your GE supplier.

    On models JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and
    JVM3670, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
    20-watt halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from
    your GE supplier.

    To replace the bulb(s), first disconnect the
    power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
    or pull the plug.

    Remove the screw at the left edge of the light
    cover and push on the right edge of the cover
    to open.

    Be sure the bulb(s) to be replaced are cool
    before removing. After breaking the adhesive
    seal, remove the bulb by either gently turning
    (for models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
    EMO4000) or pulling straight out (for models
    JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and JVM3670).

    Replace with the same size and type bulb.

    Raise the light shield and replace the screw.

    Connect electrical power to the oven.

    Oven Light

    Replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt, 20-watt
    halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from your GE supplier.

    To replace the oven light, first disconnect the
    power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
    or pull the plug.

    Remove the top grille by taking out the screws
    on top of the grille that hold it in place and
    sliding the grille to the left (opening the door
    makes grille removal easier).

    Next, remove the light cover.

    On some models, the light cover is located
    in the center of the top opening. Remove the
    screw that secures the light cover and lift the
    cover off.

    On some models, the light cover is located at the
    left of the top opening. Lift the cover off.

    Pinch the clips that hold the light socket in
    place and lift the socket out.

    Remove the bulb from the light socket by
    pulling straight out. Replace with the same size
    and type bulb, then replace the light socket and
    cover.

    Replace the grille and screws. Connect electrical
    power to the oven.

    Replacing lightbulb in Sharp R953M combi microwave oven


    most microwave ovens built in the last 20 years do not have an
    access panel to the light bulb. you must remove the screws on the back of the microwave that hold the outer sleeve in place.
    Then pull upward and backward on the sleeve to disengage it
    from the front lip of the chassis. the light bulb should be close to the front of the microwave behind the control panel. Some lights
    are not unscrewable from the socket, but the socket and bulb
    come as an assembly.
