GE PEB1590SM2SS built-in microwave

4 posts in this topic

The interior light in my brand new microwave has gone out. The Use and Care manual is useless on how to replace the bulb. Any help would be appreciated.

Well, as I suspected, that box is comin' down. You have to change the light bulb from inside on this one. I think they used the same engineers that designed the Fukushima reactor when they bodged together this microwave unit.

Here's a pic that show's where you're going:

Thanks. The warranty says the light is covered for free, but you have to pay the service to install it. I've sent an email to GE to get the part. Don't know if they'll send it to me.

I'm irritated that this unit is only 2 months old and had this kind of issue. With a part this convoluted to replace, you'd think they would use a highly reliable component. Wishful thinking I guess. Your comment about Fukushima is right on.
