How do you access the light bulb in a Magic Chief Microwave MCD1611W

Quoting from link:

"Unfortunately the microwave will need to be taken apart to replace the bulb. You'll need a size T-20 safety torx bit screwdriver to remove the screws coming in from the back of the microwave around the right left and top edges. Start by unplugging the microwave. Then remove all the screws going into the outer shell and then the outer shell will pull straight back, up, and off. Now you have access to the bulb on the right side of the microwave cavity so you can replace it. The reason Magic Chef did this was because it forces you to unplug the microwave. Before they allowed you to change it by just opening the door and people wouldn't unplug the microwave which would cause the display board to short out when you replaced the bulb."

How to change a Microwave Oven lamp.

All microwaves have their lamps positioned outside the heating cavity so as not to interfere with the microwave process and to avoid arcing. Some lamps are accessable by removing a small cover on the rear of the unit. If you do not see any doors on the rear of the unit you will have to remove the metal cover.

To access your lamp you will need to remove the outer cabinet which requires removing all the screws around the back lip. With all the screws out, the cabinet should slip off the unit. It should pull up and to the front to get it off. In some cases the cabinet may stick due to food spills which have dried, holding the cover, even after all screws have been removed. Be careful but persistent and the cover will come off.

Once the outside cover is off the lamp should be visible. If not you may have to remove another dust cover to access it. At this point the lamp can be removed and replaced.

Replacement lamps should be available at Lowes Home Depot or .Be sure to replace the lamp with the exact same size/rating bulb and one which is designed to work in a microwave oven. These are specially designed lamps and therefore will cost more than a run of the mill lamp.

Installing a larger unit may cause overheating problems, melting or possibly even a fire. Reverse the procedure used to disassemble and your unit should be ready to go.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Wheres the bulb in a delonghi AC925EFY microwave

You must remove the outer cabinet from the Microwave to access the bulb. Remove every screw top, sides and bottom and slide the cabinet off.

Is it possible to replace the bulb

yes, but in most cases, you have to take the entire outer cabinet off to get to it. With the unit unplugged, undo all the screws at the back and possibly the sides that obviously hold the outer cabinet on and slide the cabinet backwards, it should come off quiet easily. The globe will normally be easy to find on the side of the oven. Generally a 25 watt SES or E12 pigmy globe.

How to change the light in my gold start microwave

Some are accessible only if the outer cabinet is taken off.
Most manufacturers recommend that only appliance repair shops do this,
because if the cabinet is not reassembled properly, there is a possibility
of dangerous levels of microwave leakage.

The light in my microwave went out. how do i replace the light bulb?

Some have a plate on the interior of the oven that can be removed for easy bulb replacement but if yours does not you will have to remove the entire outer covering to access the bulb. If you have a combination microwave/Range vent you will have to remove the entire unit from the cabinet, then remove the outer cover, replace the bulb and re-install the combination unit.
