Bulb replacement

Remove shroud . Two black philips head screws on side, and several on the back side. The two bottom screws on the back are special screws that a philips,straight slot, or hex screwdriver will not remove. I took a dremel tool with a thin metal grinding disc and created a straight slot through the centr of the two bottom screws. This allowed their removal with a straight slot screwdriver. Slide the cover straight back and off. The bulb is located on the top of the microwave connected with one screw. Replaced the bulb. It has two prongs that fit into the holder. Replace screw. Slide cover back on. It slides into retaining splines on 3 sides. Replace screws, and you're in business.

Replace lamp bulb in ge profile microwave

First went to Sears & got 'Security Torx' screw driver set for 8.99. Got set of 6 drivers that will fit on drill , this is what will open bottom 2 screws on rear of Microwave. The other screws on the microwave are Phillips head screws.
Then Unplug Unit put on firm surface and go to rear & side of unit & take off only screws on the perimeter of the case. Then take off screws on side of case. (only 1 side has screws) Then make sure you discharge your static electricity by touching some metal or using a grounding wire device (most of us Computer Tech's have). Then gently slide case off from under front tabs. Looking at the right side of the Microwave (front facing) you will see a plug sitting up with two screws. You will not see the bulb as it is inserted upside down in a cover which shields it. The bulb will have a 2 wire attachment shielded by a electric cable attachment. If you don't see it immediately, refer to the schematic under your case or refer to the diagram on this web site carefully. The bulb is there in plain view. After removing the two screws and re- attaching the power cable to the bulb. Re slide on the case cover and replace the screws. I kept my security Torx screws in place in case I ever need to go to a repair person for more serious service then replacing a bulb.

Lamp burned out

The cabinet must be removed. Lamp is not accessable from inside the oven. They tried to make it difficult by putting two Torx screws in the back. All the others are Phillips head.

Remove the cabinet screws then slide the cabinet off toward the back of the unit. Lamp is on the upper left looking at the unit from the back. The oval lamp base is secured by one Phillips screw. The connector was slightly difficult to remove from the lamp base but it came loose by spreading the plastic connector with a small screwdriver. Needlenose pliers would probably work.

Install the new lamp, replace the cabinet and it's done.

Oven lamp burned out

Replacing the lamp is a no brainer. Getting to it is another story. The company clearly does not want people mucking around inside the case. The two lower rear screws securing the case cover are none tamper screws requiring some kind of special driver. Plus they are hardened metal. Lacking the special tool I had to chisel them out. Add to that the fact that the case and cover are very soft metal and you can imaging the mess I had on my hands. Luckily in the aftermath I was able to straighten every thing out during reassembly and the damage does not show too much. Beware, this is not as easy a job as you might think.

Microwave oven light bulb replacement

GE Profile Microwave Oven model JE1590. This microwave does not have an easy to replace bulb location and requires this custom bulb replacement part. The microwave cover must be removed to access the bulb replacement location. There are two black phillips screws on the right side of the microwave which must be removed and an additional 5 silver screws on the back. 2 of these screws are philips and 3 are tamper resistant torx, size TR20. If you do not have a TR20 you can either purchase an inexpensive bit set (recommended) or modify the screw heads with a Dremel (type) tool to allow them to be removed with a flat head screw driver. Once all the screws are removed, the oven cover will slide back and lift off. The bulb is located on the top, front, right side of microwave. There is a single philips head screw (pointing down) holding the bulb assembly in place. Remove the screw and the assembly lifts up. Gently slide the bulb connectors aways from the wires and replace with the new bulb. I recommend you wait to remove the old bulb until you have the replacement so you can see how the replacement will fit.
