Light Bulb - 125V 20W Specifications

This part is the replacement light bulb for your microwave. This bulb is 125 volts and 25 watts. It should come on automatically when you open your microwave door, or if the microwave is running. If your light bulb is burnt out, it will not be able to do this, and will need to be replaced. Before you change the bulb, be sure to check that the light socket still works, as it may need to be replaced as well. Remember to disconnect the microwave from the power source before you begin this repair. This part is sold individually and is an OEM part sourced directly from the manufacturer.

Bulb inside microwave is out. I found the part no ps247267 on your webpage. I clicked on installation instructions and got several non helpful reports from individuals who installed the part but I could not find any actual instructions. One of the comments mentioned pictures of replacement but I can't find them. Help.
For model number JES2051DN2BB
Hi Bill,Thank you for the question. In order to replace the bulb in the interior of the microwave, you will need to remove it from the cabinet so you can remove the outer case. Once removed you can see where the bulb is located. Hope this helps!

Looking to replace the light bulb. Part number 4008 if I am correct. Exactly what do I have to do to replace the light bulb? Surely I don't have to pull the microwave out of the wall to get to the bulb access. Is there easy access from inside the microwave? Thanks

The bulb is burned out. Does the cover come off fairly easy and what is the best way to accomplish that. I assume that once the cover is removed the old bulb pops out and new bulb inserted. No other aspects that would complicate the process?
For model number JEB1860SM1SS
Hi Jim, Thank you for the question. Yes, the cover is held in place by a few acres around the back of the appliance.Once removed you can see the bulb and how it is held in place. Should be a fairly easy repair. Hope this helps!

See following question and answer to gain perspective for this question: The microwave is a built into the cabinet over the oven. Are you saying that the microwave has to be removed from the cabinet to access bulb? I was assuming that you could access it from the inside of the microwave. The bulb is burned out.

Is there a way to NOT have the light go on when the door is open? I want to paint a spot on the door and allow it to dry overnight without having the light remain on all night. If this is not possible, I suppose I will close the door and hope the paint dries overnight. The paint is made to be used on the cavity of the microwave. Thank you. AL
For model number JEB1860DM1WW
Hello Al, Thank you for your inquiry. The simplest way to keep the light from coming on is to pull the bulb out. You would need to remove the microwave cover, locate the bulb, remove it and then replace the bulb in the morning and replace the cover. We hope this helps.

bulb out
The most difficult thing was removing the star security screws Both Home Depot and Lowes have tools to do this. The repair was a piece of cake, may have taken 15 min. Unplug 120v, remove case, bulb, replace and reassemble. GE doesn't want consumers fooling around inside the case, so be careful.

Microwave light bulb burned out
None of the manuals or schematic diagrams gave a clue as to where the damn bulb was and messing around in the guts of a microwave is not for the faint of heart. Once I found it the rest was easy -- take out the old bulb and put in the new one. Be careful reassembling the case -- microwave leakage is not good.

Replace interior bulb
Pretty simple but required buying a set of security bits (#68549) from Harbor Freight for $7.00 to remove the outer cover of my GE JES2051SNSS microwave. At first glance I thought the cover would remove by going towards the front of the microwave, but it ended up just needing a tug to the rear. I like this site because they have pictures of the exploded appliances that show what your getting into.

Replacing burnt out bulb on microwave
To remove the outer cover of the microwave you have to unscrew 7 or 8 Phillips screws but most of them have "secure" type heads, so you need a driver with a hole in the middle, to fit over the pin on the screw head. I had one of those already, so it wasn't a problem. The metal cover is slid between rubberized strips on the front face of the enclosure and needs to be lifted and tugged out quite firmly in order to release it. Once the cover was removed, the bulb can be seen attached to the main frame of the microwave by a soft metal lug that can be bent back by hand to release the bulb and its integrated holder. The wiring harness simply pulls off of the bulb prongs and there you have the charred remains of the original bulb! I tried every appliance store and hardware store in Bismarck, but nobody had this part. When I typed in the serial number on the bulb, Partselect's site came up with exactly what I needed. Replacement was a simple reversal of the process, making sure not to over-tighten the sheet metal screws on the cabinet. Voila! We have light beams again. Thanks Partselect.

light bulb burned out
Remove the top of the microwave, regular phillips screws on sides, torque screws on back. Lift up back and slide off cover. Light bulb socket is easily detached and bulb unplugged and replaced. Slide cover from back lifted slightly so lip will slide into front of microwave, than replace screws. Be sure to unplug microwave before you start.
