This microwave is mounted above my stove and the light bulb burnt on the bottom of the microwave, that shines down on the top of the stove, not the bulb inside the microwave. Do I unscrew the bulb or pull straight out to replace it?

Question:

I received your answer and looked it over carefully, if you're suggesting in order to remove the bottom of this microwave i would have to remove it from the wall where it is mounted above my stove it doesn't speak well of your product or the people with engineered, it should be obvious that the light bulbs would require changing and what you describe is no simple operation. Furthermore i would need a parts blowup showing just how the bottom is mounted.

This particular microwave has 2 bulbs on the underneath side. One on the left and one on the right underneath side. The setting on the microwave says,: Bright-night-off. So, my question is, are these bulbs dual elements. We just bought this house and have tried these bottom lights and they only seem to have a dim setting and now one is completely burnt out. I want to replace these bulbs with the correct bulbs...what do i need to get?

Question:

The stove light under the microwave appeared to be burnt out, so we replaced the bulb and now we can't turn off. We also noticed there are 2 different size bulbs. We don't know if the tenants switched things up or if this is this normal? And if this is normal, does each bulb have to be installed in a particular way? Thanks

Heather for model number JVM1750DP2WW
February 20, 2018
Answer:

Hello Heather, thank you for your question. The bulb should be a 40W 130V bulb, and it should look just like the picture of the part number WB36X10003 on our website. The bulbs are simply turned into the socket, like any light bulb. If there are two different sized bulbs, after replacing one you may want to replace both bulbs with the manufacturer suggested replacements, which is part number WB36X10003. If the bulbs are replaced and they still will not turn off, there is another issue with the unit. Perhaps, the sockets, or the light switch, which is part of the control board itself. I hope this helps!

Question:

When the bulbs burnt out under my microwave i broke one trying to get the base of the bulb out that broke. I broke the socket trying to get it out. Not a problem, ordered parts and replaced bulbs. Ever since then the bulbs keep burning out quickly. I thought it was just a coincidence the first time but now it's the third time and they're burnt out again. What would be causing the bulbs to burn out so quickly? As i mentioned before, i have already replaced one socket.

Missy for model number JVM1750DP1CC
October 16, 2017
Answer:

Hello Missy, thank you for contacting us. The two most common reasons a bulb keeps blowing are: Too much current caused by an arcing contact or a fault in the microwave's power delivery to the light fittings or vibration of the filament whilst it's hot. You can diagnose vibration quite easily by feeling for vibrations on the underside of the microwave. Arcing leaves pitting, scarring or even charring on the connectors so look for that. If you can feel neither vibration nor see evidence of arcing it's time to dismantle the microwave and examine the power delivery route to those lights for faults. You may need a certified repair tech for that. Hope this helps!

Light bulb out, tried to remove, lamp socket broke
Above the stove mounted microwave. I dropped the lens cover from under the bulb and tried to remove the bulb. The bulb separated from the base. I tried to remove the base with a pliers and the lamp socket broke. I ordered the parts and dropped the bottom cover of the unit down (5 screws). Removed 1 screww from the lamp socket, unplugged the wires and took it out. Simply replaced socket, fastened bottom cover of microwave, installed new bulb and closed lens cover.

Bulb had broken off in base that was still screwed into socket
At first I tried to use pliers to unscrew the base,very uncomfortable working position,upside down and backwards(the microwave is installed over the range top)very limited space for your body and arms to manuver and you really cant see the base,all of this took place after the breaker was turned off ofcourse,finally figured out that you can drop the entire bottom housing of the microwave by unscrewing 6 screws and the light sockets are easily accessable once you lower it,take out 1 retaining screw ,remove the entire socket and unscrewed the broken base and replaced the bulbs,I said bulbs,there is no sense in having to replace another bulb in who knows how long since only one had burned out but they were both the same age

Both lights burned out
After reading some of the comments that others wrote, I decided to order the light sockets along with the replacement bulbs. As predicted, the old light bulbs broke when I tried to remove them - the bulb separated from the base which was still screwed in the socket. After removing the screws that held the bottom panel, I was able to remove the socket assemblies with ease. After inspection of the old sockets, I was glad I ordered new sockets - the old sockets were burned in some spots and very brittle. The parts arrived within a day and a half after I ordered them, but when the parts arrived, one of the bulbs was broken (happened during shipping). I called the office phone number and talked to a really pleasant technician who refunded me the price of the broken bulb and placed an order for a replacement. That was the Wednesday evening before Thanksgiving Day. I got the replacement bulb yesterday (Tuesday) morning - still really quick considering the Thanksgiving holiday. All of the parts are installed and are working excellent. I am definately going to keep their WEBsite for future use, and I'll be letting my friends know about them. Thanks PartSelect, you've earned my business.

Repair broken lens and replace light bulb.
This was a super easy repair job. I couldn't figure out how the lens that covered the light bulb would have cracked and realized it must have been from my contractor when he replaced my stove. I can't prove it, of course, so I am left doing the repairs. The website was very easy to order from and confirm that I had the correct parts as the model numbers tend to change over time.

Light bulbs wouldn't come out of socket
I ended up breaking one bulb trying to remove a burnt bulb for replacement. We then tried removing the other bulb and it wouldn't come out either. I googled the problem and found PartSelect and an explaination of the problem. Heat from either the stove or the bulbs had fused the bulbs into the sockets. Comments on the problem explained that you just remove the bottome pannel (we had seven screws), unplug the old sockets, insert the new and new bulbs and reattach the panel. It was quick and no problems to correct. We did discover the microwave was on its own breaker, make sure to disconnect or cutoff power to the microwave before you start.

Burned out fuse and burned out bulb
Put radioactive nuke suit on. Unplug microwave, used philips screw driver and took glass plate from the bulb cover, unscrew burnt bulb and replace with new bulb. Put cover back over replacement bulb, insert screw and tighten. Then used philips screw driver to take two screws that held the front control panel in place, then it folded down, then checked 20 amp fuse, it was burnt, replaced it with a new one. Folded control panel, inserted two small philip head screws back into control panel. Then plugged microwave back in, set the clock, tested it with cup water. Worked like a brand new one. Take off radioactive nuke suit. Just kidding about the radioactive nuke suit.

Light socket replacement
I was told by 2 different appliance technicians that the crumbled/melted light socket could not be replaced which meant replacing the entire microwave (expensive!). Other posters on your sight described the repair steps and I gave it a try. The hardest part was probably figuring out which switch in the fuse box belonged to it (now marked clearly). It was a simple matter of unscrewing the bottom panel of the microwave to access the socket, pulling the crumbled/melted unit off and shoving the new one on. I can't believe the repairmen didn't want any part of even giving it a try.

Under microwave (above stove) light
The replacement of the light no problem, the reason the light broke; problem. The original was glued in (for transport i think) and simply trying to unscrew it out (in a very tight slot) it broke; be careful or you’ll be buying a new $20 bulb (with shipping and handling).

Broken glass and bad bulb
Removed one screw, slid frame out and removed broken glass. replaced bulb. The hard part was slidding the frame back in place and starting the screw. We were very surprised at the fast delivery of the parts, thank you. The sad part, a few days later the glass broke again. We are trying to get to the people at GE to solve our problem. We feel like that will not happen, we just do not have the time to stay on hold on the phone waiting for someone to solve our problem. Will reorder glass.
