SOURCE: Replacing lightbulb in Sharp R953M combi microwave oven

most microwave ovens built in the last 20 years do not have an
access panel to the light bulb. you must remove the screws on the back of the microwave that hold the outer sleeve in place.
Then pull upward and backward on the sleeve to disengage it
from the front lip of the chassis. the light bulb should be close to the front of the microwave behind the control panel. Some lights
are not unscrewable from the socket, but the socket and bulb
come as an assembly.

The Viking VMOS200 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-530E.

One or both of these service manuals should cover disassembly and location of the bulb:

On this model, you have to remove the outer cover of the oven, then you'll find the lamp in the socket mounted on the air duct above the magnetron on the right side of the oven.

The DMO24S is essentially a rebranded Sharp model R-530E, so its service manual (here) will tell you how to disassemble it, but the proper part numbers are found in the DMO24 parts list here.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

At that last link, when looking for Dacor parts, you have to search by part number only.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Tip

I can not believe I have to jump through these hoops just to change a feaken...


The folks at GE told me you need a technician to change this bulb. Phooey, I say. It was a piece of cake. Save $ 100 and follow my instructions. I did it. I would imagine most GE microwaves would be similar.

Here's how to do it. I bought this bulb (part # WB36X951) from PARTSTORE.COM for $ 18.58 total (that's bad enough). Got the bulb within a few days.

This model GE microwave, is a stainless model with stainless inside and grilling element.

The bulb is located directly behind the front control panel (on the right), but you need to remove the stainless cover to get to it. Naturally, unplug it first. You'll need one those star bits (not sure what size), a philips head won't work. There's four of those sneaky screws on the rear. Remove those screws and the cover slides off. VOILA! It's magic! The bulb, you'll see, is sealed to a base, but it has as double slide contact. Undo this before removing the bulb. It's snapped into a little fixture. Remove the old bulb and snap new one in. Replace the contact leads and that's it.

The cover is a little tricky to get back seated properly. Along with the sneaky star screws, this is another attempt to discourage consumer servicing. Make sure that the cover is flush with the back before replacing the screws. You're done.

I for one, am tired of this type of this type of rip-off and scamming. I hope this tips helps many and saves some of you from paying a ridiculous service fee.

If this tip has helped you, let know. E-mail me at [email protected]

The lightbulb cover on my whirlpool WFE361LVS wont unscrew, how do I get it off, I need to change the bulb


Most microwave ovens lamps' outlast the life of the microwave. So, most of them do not have access covers for the oven lamp. The lamp has to be replaced from inside the unit. Also, the newer units tend to use bulb assemblies rather than just a screw in type bulb. Call Whirlpools 800 help line or your local appliance parts store and have them look it up for you.

Change lightbulb


most times you have to take the outer case off (the stainless steel part) and then you can see all the wires circuitry etc. thats how you get to the light bulb. make sure you unplug the microwave first and do not touch where it says electric shock hazard it will shock you even if not plugged in

The lightbulb in my Whirlpool Gold Microwave & Convection oven has gone out. How do I change it?


On this model, the lamp is mounted in the air duct near the magnetron inside the oven and is not considered user accessible.

Some manufacturers still include access panels so you can easily change the bulb. Those expose the customer to 110V connectors, and that poses a real liability threat, so many stopped using them.

So you must remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.


See these help files:

http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/disassembly.txt
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/doorsw.txt

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
