Question about GE JVM1860 Microwave Oven
I'm trying to replace the over light inside this mounted microwave from GE. Unfortunately, the manual mentions that you should take out the grille to access the light, but my oven has the Active Vent that is enabled whenever the microwave is in use and effectively blocks the vent and grille that I believe I should access according to the picture. Any other recommendations on what I thought would be a simple task?
Both bulbs on my jvm 1860 only turn on to high beams, i replaced them and they do the same thing. i have replaced the bulbs at various times and never had a problem. Any suggestions as to why the bright lites <light> go on but the night lite mode will not work?

Not sure as microwave manuals often will not discuss this due to consumer safety concerns, but here is some info from a good source on Microwave repair:
"You would think that something like replacing a light bulb would be trivial and self evident. Unfortunately, not always so with microwave ovens. Light bulbs may be typically located in any of 3 places:
These are typically not your usual vanilla flavored appliance bulbs either.
Bad connections are also possible but not that likely."
Remember, while you can do some repairs on your microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, follow the above link and take note of the safety instructions.
