The full model number is #363.62709200. There is a large circular access panel in the inside top of the MW. Even has arrows for open and close but it want budge. There appears to be a nipple there to push to allow the panel to turn left to open and right to close. However, it also will not budge. It is a Sears Kenmore vented over the stove model.

The 5-digit number above is not a complete model number.

If you can post the full model number I can probably give you a link to the explode view, or you can find it here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)

Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

How do i gain access to the bulb to replace it?


I assume you're talking about the light that is inside the microwave & not the cook top light. Unplug unit. Normally your microwave will have a plastic or metal panel on the top front or back of the unit. (The bulb is not always changed from the inside of the unit.) Simply remove the few screws that hold the panel on & remove it. This should give you simple access to the bad bulb. Replace bulb then reassemble. Some free standing units require the entire outside enclosure be removed.

How do you change a light bulb in a panasonic 1100 microwave oven?


Some microwaves have a small panel on the side which you will need to undo a screw . Open the small panel and unscrew the bulb.
Others have a small square panel inside which may look like card that you can slide out and remove the bulb.

FGMV205K cover removal


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know how to remove the cover on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV205K. There are two different covers that you are able to remove for access to two different light bulbs.

If you are trying to change the Microwave Oven Light for inside your microwave:

    1)To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

    2)Remove the louver by removing the three Hood Louver Screws.

    3)Push in the upper tabs and pull the louver away from your appliance.

    4)Remove the light bulb and replace with a new 20 watt light bulb. DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

    5)Close the Oven Light Cover by carefully pushing into place. Push the louver back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and change to hood Louver Screws.


    If you are trying to change the light bulbs underneath your Microwave:

      1)To replace light bulbs, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

      2)To open Light Cover, remove the screw on the light cover.

      3)Replace the light bulbs with new 20 watt light bulbs. DO NOT USE BULBS LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

      4)Close the Light Cover and secure with screw removed at step 2.

      If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

      -Best Regards-

Have a Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave. Light bulb


no, no, no,,,its far to dangerous for you to open up the case of your microwave to change a light buld,,,
dont even think of going in there,,,
inside your microwave there are 1000,s of volts stored up in a capacitor if you tuch it you could kill yourself
have you ever seen a police stun gun working,,
it realy hurts you,,,,,
inside your microwave is the stun guns big brother
it dont just stun you,, it could kill you,,,
thats why you dont go inside it ok,,,
the light buld can be changed from inside the case normaly if it cant be, then drop it in the shop for a repair or use it with out a light in it,,
dont try and kill yourself just for a light buld

GE MIcrowave model JVM1631BJ01 hood lights won't work


The part that controls that is goes through your control panel on your microwave. For the lights to come on to start with the door being closed switches have to be working right and when you press start the lights come one. When the microwave is through cooking and you open then close the door then the lights should go out. The logic IC on the control panel board that detects all these events is not being reset correctly. Unless you get a microwave tech to track down the component on the control panel circuit board it is not something that you could do on your own since it takes voltage and signal checks with the proper equipment and then some soldering and desoldering of the defective component(s). Good luck and God bless.

Light bulb


If you are comfortable with taking the cover off, Unplug the microwave, usually there are 2 philips screws on the top back, 2 on the right back and 2 on the left back edge cover. Sometimes, their might be a screw on the bottom but you will notice this right away if there are or not if the cover doesnt come off.

Then located the light bulb. You should be able to see the opening from inside the microwave where the light bulb is located.

Once you locate the bulb, then there are usually 2 types, type 1 screws in and the other type is a bayonet type, which you push down, and then twist. You should be able to figure this out.
Sometimes there is a plastic cover that is placed around the bulb to kinda help focus the light towards the inside of the microwave.
Once the bulb is out, then take it to your local hardware store and see if they can match it up. You might want to call first to see if they carry them before driving all over the place.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
If i have helped you with you question, then please remember to post a feedback and a rating.
Thanks.

Where is the light bulb located?


Unscrew the vent at the top of the microwave(2 phillips head screws)
inside to the right you'll see another screw holding a metal panel. Unscrew this and take the panel off and you'll see the bulb, which will unscrew counter-clockwise
