How do I replace the lightbulb in a Frigidaire Microwave Model FFCE2278LS?

I called the Service number and was told this requires a service call and can't be replaced by the consumer.

    Thank you for researching this issue. It's a shame that a lightbulb replacement requires a service call. I think we'll learn to get along without the light if that's the case. Gary

Good Evening Gary, thank you for your post!
From the information you have provided you need to replace the lightbulb inside of your Frigidaire microwave. I have researched your microwave and you are unable to disassemble your microwave in order to replace the lightbulb. In order to provide you with a proper resolution I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional technician for repairs. This will help you avoid unnecessary part purchases or personal injury. -Matt

How do I replace the light bulb ? \r\nI try to open in rear but saw 3 warning lables, plug I don't have tool to remove those screws. What can I do ? Please help thanks ian


There is no mention of lamp replacement in the manual. You should be able to access the lamp IF you unplug the oven and let is sit for 30 minutes or longer before removing the screws. Since there is no info on the lamp, it may be of a type that is not user replaceable (simple push in or screw in type), or is not readily available.

You may end up having to contact Samsung (number is in the manual) to obtain the lamp - or they may not wish to sell to the consumer - which would require a service man perform the work. You'll also need to buy the tool to remove the screws, too. Maybe you can live without the light.. or get it fixed or replaced entirely. A service call may cost more than it's worth.

Good luck!

My microwave turns on but the food isn't getting hot.


Sounds like a magnetron failure. This is the device that generates the microwaves that heat the food. It is connected to a lot of high voltage components and if you don't know what you are doing can really hurt yourself. Typically these parts short out and it needs to be replaced. The cost of replacing the magnetron come close to the cost of a new oven. Not usually cost effective to repair.

Smelled like something was burning and stopped heating. Turntable and lights work


March 2012 - GE does not support customers mad.gif

I have GE microwave with a failed Magnetron. It is emitting large sparks. Upon removing the magnetron I found that the sparks left residue where they are leaking from the cylindrical shaped piece on the end of the Magnetron.

The Magnetron is under warranty.

BUT

GE WILL NOT HONOR THEIR WARRANTY AND SEND A MAGNETRON.
GE HAS SENT OUT HUNDREDS OF MAGNETRONS TO CUSTOMERS - SEARCH ONLINE TO SEE THIS IS TRUE.

I called GE PARTS, GE support and GE consumer relations department. They changed their policy two weeks ago and require a service technician to replace the part.

THE COST IS $220 FOR THE REPAIR TECHNICIAN.

Since I already removed the part the service technician would have to put in 3 screws and plug in the cable...FOR $220...I PAID $229 FOR THE MICROWAVE NEW!!!!

DO NOT BUY GE.
DO NOT BUY GENERAL ELECTRIC.

GE DOES NOT SUPPORT IT'S WARRANTIES UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO PAY THE SAME AMOUNT THAT YOU PAID FOR THE PRODUCT!!


Further research:

GE Microwaves can spontaneously turn on and start a fire - see Consumer Reports web page here:
http://www.consumerreports.org/content/cro/en/consumer-reports-magazine-march-2012/kitchen-fire-safety.html

Further evidence GE retroactively changing their warranties:
