If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, and a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Where are the fuses located in a Gold star microwave model #MVH1670ST


Kathy, when you say it is dead, I assume you mean that there are no lights or anything when you open the door. If that is the case, you will need to take off the outer shell of the microwave and look for where the cord enters the back of the unit. If you have a black and white wire as well as the green ground wire coming from your power cord, you need to follow the black wire to it's termination. It will stop at either a fuse holder, which will be where you fuse is located, or it will go to a small circuit board and you should find your fuse located on the board. Once you pull the fuse out, you can look on each end of the fuse to find out what size fuse you need to replace it. Let me remind you to also be sure you un-plug the microwave before doing any work on removing the cover. Hope this helps!

Changing light bulb


Difficult to give specific instructions without knowing the model of the appliance.

In general, to replace the bulb you have to open the chassis sheet metal that is secured with screws on the back.
IMPORTANT: BEFORE YOU DO ANY WORK ON AN OPEN MICROWAVE, YOU NEED TO DISCHARGE THE CAPACITOR WHICH STORES A HIGH VOLTAGE. If you are not sure of how to do this, it is better to get the service done by a professional. You can search online for "Discharging Microwave Capacitor"
Once the capacitor is safely discharged, you can look at the connections inside and locate the bulb to be replaced. It is typically behind the control panel.

How do I replace light bulb


Hello,

Do you mean you want to replace light bulb for your microwave? If yes follow the instructions below;
  1. PLEASE UNPLUG YOUR MICROWAVE!
  2. Picture of your microwave with a phone or camera so that you don't forget how to assemble it back.
  3. Remove the two screws that holds grill. They are located at the edge of the unit. Once the screws are out, rotate the grill forward from the top. It will pop right out.
  4. Once the screws are out, rotate the grill forward from the top. The grill should pop right out.
  5. Locate a small access cavity on the left.
  6. Remove the screw that is located near the front of the microwave door.
  7. Lift up the sheet metal floor to access the bulb. The bulb is located under the sheet metal "floor" on the left.
  8. Place a flash light on the microwave floor and shine the light in the light area. This will help you see better when you replace your bulb.
  9. Look for a small shiny reflector that hides the bulb. Use your two fingers to squeeze it a bit. Making sure not to bend it.
  10. The bulb connection should come right out.
  11. After you replaced the bulb, re secure the reflector and the sheet metal floor with the single screw. Test the bulb by plugging in your microwave.
  12. Once you see that the bulb works. Unplug your microwave again and re attach the front grill. You are now done.
I hope this helps to solve your problem.

Good luck.

Frigidaire microwave won't heat


Generally the magnetron (the part that heats the food) is the cause if everything else still works and it only works once in a while, possibly a short, but not as likely. Unfortunately replacing the magnetron is barely cheaper than buying a new microwave though you can check out repairclinic.com to decide whether you want to attempt replacing the part.

Let me know how this works out for you.

I have a frid microwave FMV145KB2 that has stop working


if the magnetron is shot, then replace the microwave! the magnetron is what produces the 'microwaves' that do the heating. get rid of it! buy a new one! the smell is from overheating circuitry- don't want to take the chance of a fire!
these days you can replace it pretty cheaply- with a fine piece of technology made in china! but, if it lasts 3-4 years, it's pretty cost effective.
once again! if your getting a 'burning' smell from it, unplug it and dispose of it!
good luck!

Microwave stopped working, no power. Checked


There are two thermal fuses.

One is located on the magnetron and another one is located on top of the left side of the cavity under the air duct. The microwave has to be removed from the cabinet to access the second one.




The problem turned out to be a 20 amp fuse that I was able to replace and the unit is working fine. Sometimes a blind squirrel finds nuts.

Has no power


If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.

My goldstar micro stopped working. No display. it's dead!! Is there an interior fuse and where is it located? Thanks


You may have a blown internal fuse. You''ll need to unplug the unit, remove the outside cover and follow the line cord and you should find the fuse.

Replace it with the EXACT same value that was labeled on the original fuse. You'll probably be able to find a replacement at any Radio Shack store or hardware store.

Replace the cover and plug the unit back in. Hopefully nothing was damaged and the unit will play again.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
