    How do I change the Light Bulb?

    Microwave is working, but suddenly the inside light is not. I removed the exterior top strip, but the light bulb is not visible, so I cannot determine if it is burned out or otherwise malfunctioning. On the upper left, to the left of the filter, there is a recessed area where the bulb should be - probably - but there is a black piece about 3" by 1.5" that is blocking that area, and I can't get it out to see if the inside light is back in that cavity. Should I risk damaging that block piece by pulling is vvv

    I've the GE Spacemaker Microwave model. The interior light bulb burnt out and I tried to find a way to replace the bulb, but I couldn't get to it. I've called GE and they told me that I need a technician to come and fix it for $99.00.
    There is like a small window on the top interior of the microwave, I took it out, but the part is blocked and I cannot get to the bulb. GE told me that its in the back of the micro which I don't think so. Besides the microwave is attached to the wall. Any help would be appreciated.

Unscrew the vent at the top of the microwave(2 phillips head screws)
inside to the right you'll see another screw holding a metal panel. Unscrew this and take the panel off and you'll see the bulb, which will unscrew counter-clockwise

On my Spacemaker JVM163, I unscrewed the two top screws for the vent. After the vent was removed, I found a plate covering the light bulb. The plate removed easily by moving the plastic clip to the left. The light bulb has been replaced, and works well.

If there is not an access panel inside the cooking area (cavity) or on the back, then the outer cover will have to be removed to access the lamp. For help on that, you can find my safety info and disassembly text files by doing a search on Yahoo for this term: microwave oven disassembly.txt

Microwave interferes with TV

Take one fluorescent light-bulb -- not connected to anything -- and a darkened room. Start the microwave, and see if any emissions from it activate any of the fluorescent materials inside the light-bulb.

I went to change a light bulb, light bulb pulled out of threads. Tried to remove threads and without turning power off and shorted something out. Underneath lights and fan will not work. The microwave...

I would say you have blown a fuse on the unit. As you now have found out, that's one of the reasons why you unplug any electrical equipment before working on them. You will have to take the outer cover off the microwave and locate where the fuse is. It is most likely on the back of the main PCB or possibly inside a plastic sleeve or mounting near where the cord enters the unit.

Riccar microwave oven RM 700N Light no longer works - can't figure out how to get to the bulb to replace it.

1 Unplug the microwave oven from the outlet. Wait 20 minutes for the capacitor that is inside the microwave to discharge.
2 Unscrew all the screws around the casing by turning them counterclockwise.
3 Remove the cover by lifting off.
4 Locate the light bulb in the microwave. This will be located on either the right or left side.
5 Unscrew the light bulb by unscrewing counterclockwise. Some light bulbs are held into the socket by two notches; for these you will need to gently push on the bulb and turn counterclockwise to remove the bulb, then pull out of the socket.
6 Place your new bulb in the empty socket and secure by turning clockwise until tight, or if the bulb is one with notches on both sides, then guide the notches into the slot on the socket, push gently and turn clockwise until clicked into position.
7 Replace the cover and screw back on. You are now done and may plug back in the microwave.

GE MIcrowave model JVM1631BJ01 hood lights won't work

The part that controls that is goes through your control panel on your microwave. For the lights to come on to start with the door being closed switches have to be working right and when you press start the lights come one. When the microwave is through cooking and you open then close the door then the lights should go out. The logic IC on the control panel board that detects all these events is not being reset correctly. Unless you get a microwave tech to track down the component on the control panel circuit board it is not something that you could do on your own since it takes voltage and signal checks with the proper equipment and then some soldering and desoldering of the defective component(s). Good luck and God bless.

Where is the light bulb located?

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. Other models are similar.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and for many brands by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

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 your over the range type is out of the wall, or if yours is a counter top model, 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.

TO BIGDEEL

Do you mean your internal cooling fan or the hood / vent / exhaust fan?

If it's ther internal cooling fan, do not use the microwave or the magnetron will overheat and be damaged or destroyed.

Light bulb

If you are comfortable with taking the cover off, Unplug the microwave, usually there are 2 philips screws on the top back, 2 on the right back and 2 on the left back edge cover. Sometimes, their might be a screw on the bottom but you will notice this right away if there are or not if the cover doesnt come off.

Then located the light bulb. You should be able to see the opening from inside the microwave where the light bulb is located.

Once you locate the bulb, then there are usually 2 types, type 1 screws in and the other type is a bayonet type, which you push down, and then twist. You should be able to figure this out.
Sometimes there is a plastic cover that is placed around the bulb to kinda help focus the light towards the inside of the microwave.
Once the bulb is out, then take it to your local hardware store and see if they can match it up. You might want to call first to see if they carry them before driving all over the place.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
If i have helped you with you question, then please remember to post a feedback and a rating.
Thanks.
