    My Model No. is GE JVM1660 950 Watts

    Just completed my 1-yr warranty and have problem in changing the charcoal filter. Actually this is the first time I'm doing it. After unscrewing the 2 front screws I couldn't open the left side of the cover - the right side is also damaged while trying to pull it. Then I just stopped everything.

    Trying to find the new filter to replace.

This is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95. This is usually caused by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb or by the filaments shorting when the bulb blows. If you decide to send it for service, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Ge jvm1790wk convection/microwave oven exterior light bulb burned out...I can't read volts and watts on the original bulb and don't find the information in the manual, what do I buy to replace it?

The cooktop light is 120V, 40W max., part number WB08X10051.

That's all covered on page 27 of your owner's manual here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven or part numbers here.

To replace the inside light, you'd need to remove the oven from the wall, and take off the outer cover.

Cooktop Light / Night light

It is the control panel. You can actually just replace the circuit board on the control panel and it should fix this.

Microwave interior light

Very easy to replace...at least on my JVM1790. Remove the top vent....the long plastic thing that runs along the top of the MW. Two screws on top of the micro. Behind the charcola filter (if you installed one) is an access area to the bulb. remove one screw and the entire assy comes out. Simply R & R the bulb.
