Replacing the Microwave's Oven Light

When replacing the oven light, make sure that you are wearing gloves to avoid injury from the heat of the bulb.

  1. Unplug the oven or turn off the power at the main power supply. Open the door. Locate 3 vent cover mounting screws on the topside of the microwave.



  2. Take the mounting screws out with the screwdriver.


  3. Removing the screws will loosen the vent grille. Slide the vent grille to the left, then pull it straight out.



  4. The vent grille is removed as shown.



  5. Lift and pull the charcoal filter to remove it.



  6. Open the light cover by pressing hook and pulling up the cover.



  7. Replace the bulb with a 40 watt appliance bulb.



  8. Replace the vent grille and the 3 screws. Turn the power back on.
