Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

2 Answers

I have the GE profile spacemaker microwave oven installed over my stove. One of the lights burned out on the left lower portion of the unit. I removed the screw, lowered the metal cover, and tried to pull the old light bulb out. It broke off at the neck. I tried to get a plier to pull out the remaining piece, but there isn't enough room to get any leverage with only the left side cover pulled down. Any suggestions?

You could try the potato trick. Take a small to medium potato. Cut off an end of the potato. Press the cut end into the broken lightbulb and unscrew the rest of the bulb out.

When the base adhesive dries out the glass bulb can separate from the base. What I usually do is to get a needle nose pliers and put one of the points directly under the edge of the base and bend it so that you can put the tips of the pliers onto more of the surface of the base and simply turn it out of the socket. Needless to say make sure that the unit in unplugged before you attempt this. This usually works quite well for me. Good luck, Marty

One surface light bulb on GE Profile microwave keeps burning out


I have the same problem. The left one burns out within a couple of hours use, the other one lasts a couple of months and is then gone. This pattern has repeated over 8 years. I replace them every now and then and then just go without until I get the urge again to fix it. Maybe smaller lower wattage lamps are worth trying...
