Default How to chamber bulb in GE microwave
Model Number: JVM140K 003   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years

Hi,
I'm working on a few problems on my microwave, one abadfish66 is helping with re soldering the control board burnout.
I noticed the chamber (interior oven) light is out. I removed the upper grill and a small metal door to allow access to the bulb. I also had to remove a small glob of silicone bridging the bulb-to-socket stem. I assumed the bulb would TWIST out. I cannot get it out. Can someone please tell me how to get this out without breaking it? Is this a twist-out bulb, or is there some other clever way of removing it? If it is a twist-out, I assume the rule holds "righty=>tighty, lefty=>loosey," correct? If so, why the heck will it not twist? Could it be lack of Wheaties this morning?
Thanx much,
Nigel

If your gonna resolder the burnt trace, you will see where the trace meets some pins that are already soldered, just attach the wire to those pins.

Post Soldering those burnt leads

Hey, abadfish66, you're the man!
I'll try that spinach, then have at it again.

I assume the wire needs to be to specs ... a coated wire? Gauge? Any suggestions what kind to use? (I'll remove that control panel tomorrow and have a look, but I'm trying to anticipate the next question ... grin.)

An immense thank you!

Nigel

I normally just cut a piece of like 16 guage wire, twist about 4 strands together and solder it in. No need to use the insulation of the wire.

Hi, Abadfish69,
Tis I, Nigel. I hope you get this. I found the burnt trace on the reverse side of the circuit board. I have a great photo that I'd like to send, but don't know how to post it here. Nonetheless, you said to use (4) twisted pieces of 16G wire to repair this. 16G???? What is burned out looks like copper foil, about a 1/4" section on the 5-pin vent-blower connector, CON A; the dog-leg bend to the 2nd (or 4th, depending from what end one's counting) pin is burned out. What 16G wire means to me is something that looks like speaker wire. Don't I just need some foil kind of conductor; or might just solder work to bridge the burned-out gap between the existing foil traces in this particular circuit? I would much appreciate some more of your expert help here. Your previous answer was nearly the only answer here that did not advise "send it in," or "your control board is trashed, too bad." I respect that and thank you.
Best,
Nigel
