Question about GE JVM1490 Convection/Microwave Oven
In my GE Spacemaker JVM1490, I have replaced the bulbs several times - even if I don't touch the bulb at all, they seem to burn out all too often. Anyway, my current problem is this: Last time I pulled the bulb out, one of the bulb's leads broke off in the socket. I cannot reach the end of the broken lead with pliers - nothing protrudes from the opening. So I've been living without the light, but it's annoying. Do you recommend replacing the socket and is that something I can do alone, or is this a service call? I haven't attempted to unscrew anything - I'm worried that it'll be hard to put back together if I try. Any suggestions gratefully received - thank you.
Be sure to disconnect the oven from the power line before removing or installing bulbs or working on it.
