Question about Daewoo KOC-925T Microwave Oven
I have been a mechanical electrical engineer for just under 30 years and am blowed if I CAN FIND A WAY TO GET IT OUT I think it is on the control panel side but when i remove the small fibreglass panel I can feel the bulb on what is like a chute no way will it turn,push in or anything else.Seems mad where it is but you can just get a finger and thumb upto it.
That mica panel is the waveguide cover, and what you're feeling in there is the magnetron antenna.
If there's no other removable cover inside the cooking cavity, (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.
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.
