Light bulb replacement

The light bulb needs to be replaced for the light on GE microwave model # jvm1650.  The bulb came out but separated from the base of the bulb.  Could you please tell me how the base can be removed?  Does it screw out, pop out, or anything of that nature.  So far I haven't had much luck getting it out.

    had the same problem--bulbs broke out of base, could not get them out. sprayed with WD40, and used needle nose pliers to work them loose--be careful, I chipped the plastic housing being a little too vigorous. If you have to, let it sit for a bit, so the WD40 can work. As always, disconnect the power first!!!!!!!!!

I had the same problem--tried to twist bulds out, and they separatd from the base. I sprayed both sockets with WD40, and worked them loose with needle nose pliers. be careful- I chipped the plastic housing working a little too vigorously. Let them sit a bit, so the WD40 can work. BE Sure to shut power off first!!!!

Of course, do unplug the oven first.

Another neat old trick is to lightly spray (or drip) the area between the broken bulb and the socket with WD40 or another lubricant then stick a carrot or potato chunk into the broken part and unscrew it.

But then you need to be sure the socket is dry. You can do that by wiping it off with high-grade alcohol or blasting it with air.

Then put the new bulbs in BEFORE you reapply power.

Yes it just unscrews.  Unplug the microwave first!  Then use some needle nose pliers and put them inside the base open the pliers to put pressure on each side of the base.  Now turn the base counterclockwise.  Let me know how it turns out.

JVM1340 lights not working


Hi,

Behind the top grill above the door is an access panel to change the light bulb. If the bulb is good but light still don't work, its possible the door switch is bad, but normally if the switch is bad the turn table won't work either. Most likely just a bad bulb part number you would seek is WB36X10003 this is not cheap for a bulb, you maybe able to get a replacement from a local lighting center near you. its a 40 watt, 130V bulb

Good Luck

I need to replace the bulbs in this microwave oven. Do you know where to find replacement bulbs?


If they are meant to be user replaceable, you can download the owner's manual here.

If not, you will have to disassemble the oven.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number
here.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Surface and night light bulbs


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the bulb you need is part #AP2029997, made by GE. You can also purchase these bulbs at any hardware store. They are the half sized small base, 40 watt bulbs. If you can't find 40 watt, make sure you use a lower wattage rating. If you have questions, or if the model number is incorrect, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
