The service number for this microwave is 1-800-422-1230. I have seen this question posted on several sites with no answers. Also, I checked the Owner's Manual and I do not see an answer to this question. If I had to guess, I would say that if there is no access from the inside of the microwave, you may have to remove it from the wall as the access might be on the back of the unit.

Look for a small cover on the outside of the cabinet in the place where the bulb is. They are usually secured with a single *****. It is the only part of a microwave oven that is consumer serviceable! Remove the cover and unscrew the bulb, replace and refix the cover.

your manual is here but doesn't mention the bulb

If it's the one that lights the cooktop, it's normally beneath the bottom cover.

In some cases, it's located in a compartment behind the grille that goes across the top of the unit.

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. It may help. It's at http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

Please let me know if that helps or not.

I'm guessing the model number would be KEMS308GSS0.

In some cases, this is a glitch that can be cured by unplugging it for 1 minutes, then resetting the clock.

In other case, it may be a bad keypad (membrane switch) or control board.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

Chances are you have a bad stirrer motor or the stirrer blade is jamming or loose on the motor shaft.

Your owner's manual should tell you how to remove the stirrer cover to check it.

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can download it free here, as well as the parts manual for your model.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

How do I change the light bulb in a KCM155j Mircowave


Most microwaves have a shield over the light bulb in the cooking compartment. Some are accessed from the outside most from the inside. Check to see if there are clips or screws that need to be removed to pull the shield off. Careful if there are screws, they are usually coated to prevent the waves from arcing if you crack or break off the coating you could have problems with the microwave arcing

Kitcenaid microwave light will not dim


We see and repair this a lot. The problem is on the controller assembly.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Since the circuit boards are no longer available, repair is the only option. Details are here.

GE PEB1590 microwave oven. Interior light burned


Remove the screws from around the rear of the oven and slide the cabnet off to the rear. You should be able to access the bulb from here.
WARNING: any time you work on a microwave you have to be careful of the capacitor. Unpluge the microwave and discharge the capacitor with a large screwdriver with a plastic handle.
Be careful.

Interior Light


The interior oven light can be accessed in the following way:
1.Open door and remove the top grill via the 2 screws along the top edge.
2. In the interior light will be under metal plate with fasten by single screw. The halogen bulb is rated at 120V 20watt. Looks like a G-8 bulb with 8mm pin spacing with o.a.l. 1-5/8" long
